Applied Electronics Appointed as SMART kapp™ Select Partner for New Digital Capture Board in Canada



  • Applied Electronics to be among the first to offer the revolutionary SMART kapp™
  • SMART kapp™ replaces the old fashioned dry erase board and flipchart

Mississauga, Ontario – June 18, 2014 – Applied Electronics Limited, a leading Canadian solutions designer, supplier and integrator of professional audio visual, broadcast and data management technology, is pleased to be appointed as a SMART kapp™ Select Partner by SMART Technologies Inc., a leading collaboration company and global provider of visual collaboration solutions.

As one of two SMART kapp Select Partners in Canada, Applied Electronics will provide commercial accessibility to the new SMART kapp digital capture board product line upon its launch on June 18-20, 2014 at InfoComm in Las Vegas, NV.

“We are very excited to offer this revolutionary product to the Canadian marketplace,” says Mike Dalton, Vice President of Applied Electronics’ Audio Visual Systems Division. “This innovative digital capture board will not only improve collaboration between remote participants but will also provide an effortless and intuitive means of capturing and disseminating information from the whiteboard. This unique collaboration device complements the existing SMART Unified Communications and Collaboration solutions currently offered by Applied Electronics.”

While SMART kapp is just as easy and intuitive to use as the dry-erase board, it accomplishes so much more with features made for today’s digital world.  SMART kapp users write, draw and brainstorm using an ink marker, just as they would with the old dry-erase board. But with SMART kapp, co-workers and clients can follow the process in real-time on their mobile devices, the work can be saved in stages and as a final product as PDFs or JPEGs, easily sent to anyone, anywhere, instantly. 

“We are excited to partner with Applied Electronics in the launch of SMART kapp and include them in our roster of Select Partners,” says Scott Brown President, SMART Enterprise “They understand how technology can foster true collaboration and have the right marketing savvy to introduce this completely new and original innovation to their many clients and to new customers as well.”

With a tempered glass work surface framed in sleekly-styled lines, SMART kapp adds a contemporary design statement to any office. The price point is attractive, too: $955 CDN MSRP.

SMART kapp is now available for pre-order from Applied Electronics. Establishing a pre-order ensures that the buyer will be one of the first recipients of the SMART kapp board when the units ship later this summer.
