As compared to the traditional power-point presentation that usually involves one person presenting and the rest of the members receiving information, an interactive whiteboard makes it possible for the other members to participate more actively in the presentation. Team members can easily share files and other findings that can make the meeting more productive.
An interactive whiteboard allows you to share real-time information with people attending the meeting from remote locations as well. This ensures that everyone in the meeting is on the same page as updates made to the plan are easily and instantly communicated with all. After the office presentation the participants can receive emails or copies of everything that was shared in the session.
Highlight key points with ease

The technology allows the presenter to use 3D modelling, estimating, hyperlinking, video links and other applications to highlight the important points and communicate better with the audsmart classroomience. Moreover, he can make a note of the feedback immediately and include it in the document instantly.
Advanced sharing options
Interactive whiteboards prove excellent as classroom AV & office presentation solution because they provide a range of connectivity options. With the right hardware, users can connect it to IOS and Android devices by using a single application. This makes it possible to share the data with people using different technologies.
