A Smartboard is a type of presentation equipment that consists of a wall-mounted or free-standing whiteboard, a projector, and a computer with Smartboard software installed. The Smartboard is an interactive device that tracks finger and pen movements on the screen. In order for the equipment to correctly track these movements, it must be calibrated. Smartboard calibration is necessary when you first set up the equipment, and after the equipment is moved or bumped into.

Locate the Smartboard pen tray at the bottom of the Smartboard screen.

Step 3

Press the Smartboard tray's "Top" and "Bottom" buttons together at the same time. This will bring up a screen with a red cross.


Step 4

Place a finger on a Smartboard pen.


Step 5

Press the "Yellow Square" in the middle of each red cross as it shows on the Smartboard screen. When you have finished the process, write something on the Smartboard. If the Smartboard follows your finger or pen movements, the board is calibrated correctly.
