Adjusting the Projected Image
After installing, connecting and powering up your RPSB components, you must perform a few
simple adjustments to ensure that the image from your computer is correctly projected onto
the SMART Board. To adjust the projected image, three procedures are necessary:
1. Ensure that computer and projector resolutions match at the software level.
2. Adjust the angle of the small front mirror.
3. Adjust the position of the projector itself.
NOTE: The large rear mirror in every RPSB model never needs adjustment. The angle of this
mirror is entirely dictated by your choice of projector and is precisely set at our factory.
1. Matching Computer Resolution to Projector Resolution
It is very important that computer and projector resolutions match. If they don't match, the onscreen image will not properly fill the SMART Board screen.
You must first ensure that the projector is set to its optimal image resolution. Refer to your
projector’s manual for the true resolution of your projector, and reset it if necessary. While
these instructions may indicate that resolutions other than the optimal one are permitted, you
should not set the resolution to any of these other settings. For example, if the projector’s true
resolution is 800 x 600, but it's also capable of displaying at 640 x 480, set both the computer
and the projector to the true resolution  800 x 600.
IMPORTANT: If the resolution of the projector is set to anything other than the true
resolution, or if the computer and projector resolution do not match, you may be unable to
see all of the image on the SMART Board, or the image that appears may be too small to
properly fill the SMART Board, even with further adjustments.
To set your Windows 95 computer resolution to match the projector resolution:
1. Click the Windows 95 Start button and then point to Settings.
NOTE: You may need to perform the following procedure via your computer monitor,
as resolution differences can distort the image on the Board to the point where
visibility is impaired.
2. Point to the Control Panel folder and release the mouse button.
The Control Panel directory of folders will appear.
3. Double-click on Display.
The Display Properties dialog box will appear.
4. Click on the Settings tab.
5. In Desktop area, click and drag the sliding bar to adjust the pixel setting to match the
resolution of your projector.
6. Click the Apply and OK buttons.
7. Restart your computer, if required.
RPSB 1800/1802 Installation Guide

resolution:
1. Go to the Windows 3.1 Program Manager.
2. Double-click on the Main icon.
3. Double-click on the Windows Setup icon.
4. Select Change System Settings from the Options menu.
The Change System Settings dialog box will appear.
5. Scroll through the Display drop-down menu and select the setting that matches the
resolution of your projector.
6. Click OK.
7. Restart your computer, if required.
To set your Macintosh computer resolution to match the projector resolution:
1. Click on the Apple menu.
2. Click on Control Panels.
3. Select Monitors.
The Monitors dialog box will appear.
4. Click the Options button.
5. Go to the Select a monitor setting box and select the resolution setting that
matches the resolution of your projector.
6. Click OK.
2. Adjusting the Small Mirror
While making adjustments, check both the reflection in the small mirror and the actual image
on the screen. For an optimal image, the reflection must be in the center of the small mirror
and each side must be symmetrical. The projector should be perpendicular to the small
mirror. When you're finished, tighten the straps that secure the projector (if appropriate) or
bolt the projector to the platform.
WARNING: Never look directly into the projector lens.
S m all M irror

3. Gently push the mirror away from you, from the bottom.
4. Watch the SMART Board overhead as you push: If the projector is turned on, you'll
see the image slide up the screen. Pulling the mirror towards you will cause the
image to move down the screen.
Stop moving the mirror when the image appears to be centered on the screen. The
image should not cover the entire screen.
5. Use the projector's zoom lens to zoom out until the image squarely covers the entire
screen.
6. Tighten the thumb screws on both sides of the mirror to hold it in place.
NOTES:
•
Do not overtighten these screws. Also, be careful not to forcibly move or twist the
mirror while tightening the screws.
•
Adjust the position of the cables so they do not block the projector light path. If
you see cable shadows on the screen when the projector is turned on, make
further adjustments to the cable positions.
3. Adjusting the Projector
You must make a few final adjustments to the projector to ensure a focused image that fits
within the bezel of your SMART Board at the top and bottom, with a margin of approximately
3/8" on both right and left sides. Try each of the following procedures in turn, always using
small, slow movements. Look up and observe the effect on the image projected on the
SMART Board as you make each fine adjustment.
NOTE: The 3/8" margin described above is an optimal measurement. Alignment can vary: in
some instances, the image can fill the entire screen; in others, the margin can be greater than
3/8", but be perfectly satisfactory as long as it's even on all sides.
To move the image from side to side, shift the platform top slightly from
right to left.
Loosen the four screws that secure the top to the platform base, then shift the platform until
the image is centered properly.

KEYSTONING NOTES:
• If the image is keystoned along the sides − that is, the side margins are different
widths (see the figure on the next page) − you may need to raise or lower the
front or back of the projector slightly.
•
If the image is keystoned along the top or bottom (the sides of the image are not
of equal length), the projector is not positioned properly at a right angle to the
small front mirror. You may need to move only the back of the projector side to
side to correct the image.
2. You may be able to make minute adjustments to the projector’s position with the
projector’s built-in software, using a remote control or buttons on the projector. Refer
to your projector’s manual for details.
3. Repeat the procedures described above as necessary.

Installing the SMART Board Software
Every RPSB comes with two pieces of software: the SMART Board driver and SMART
Notebook. These two programs are combined in a single executable called SMART Board
Software.
The SMART Board driver activates your RPSB, allowing you to use your finger as a mouse,
annotate over an application with electronic ink, and use the new generation of Board-aware
applications. SMART Notebook allows you to create, organize and save notes on either a
Rear Projection SMART Board or at your workstation and then send those notes to a printer.
A full range of annotation tools are available to enable you to create a variety of annotations.
You can also use Notebook commands to export and import both graphics and text to and
from other Windows applications and your Notebook file. Refer to the SMART Board User’s
Guide and the online Help for each program for comprehensive instructions on their use.

Configuring and Orienting the SMART Board
After installing the SMART Board Software, you must perform two procedures: configuring
and orienting the SMART Board.
Configuring the SMART Board involves specifying which COM port your computer uses and
whether or not you are using a projector with the SMART Board.
To use a SMART Board with a projector, you must orient the computer image on the SMART
Board to ensure that the Board accurately tracks your finger or a Pen Tray tool. Orienting the
SMART Board involves pressing on orientation points displayed on the screen. If the
projected image becomes misaligned, you must perform the orientation procedure again.
To select a COM port for the SMART Board:
1. Choose Select Ports from the Board menu (either from the SMART Board driver window
or right-mouse click on the SMART Board System Tray icon).
or
Press the Select Ports button on the initial Board driver window.
The Check SMART Board Connections dialog box will appear.
2. Ensure all hardware elements are securely connected.
3. Press the Next button.
The Pick a Port dialog box will appear.
40
RPSB 1800/1802 Installation Guide
4. If you know the COM port that is connected to your SMART Board, select it from the list
of ports provided.
or
If you are not sure which COM port to select, press the Detect SMART Boards button to
initiate automatic SMART Board detection on local ports. At this point, you should close
any other open programs and save any unsaved work, in the event that your computer
locks up during this process. The Auto Detect program will inform you which COM port is
connected to your SMART Board.
NOTE for Macintosh Users: The Macintosh Pick a Port dialog box offers Modem Port
and Printer Port selections. Click on the appropriate selection. Otherwise, proceed as
outlined below, clicking Detect SMART Boards to initiate the automatic detection of your
Modem or Printer ports.
5. Press the Next button.
The Finished dialog box will appear.
6. Press the Done button.
The Ready Light on the Pen Tray will be illuminated.
If your hardware configuration changes, this configuration procedure will need to be
performed again.
To orient the SMART Board:
1. Select Orient Board from the Board menu (either from the SMART Board driver window
or right-mouse click on the SMART Board System Tray icon).
or
Press the Orient SMART Board button on the initial Board driver window.
or
Click or press twice on the SMART Board icon in the System Tray.
or
Press the two Pen Tray buttons simultaneously (holding for at least one second).
The Pick the Orientation Precision dialog box will appear.
2. Preview the three orientation levels − Quick, Standard and Fine − by clicking on the circle
next to each heading.
Notice that the number of crosses in the miniature SMART Board screen to the left of
these headings increases as you move down the list of headings.
The three orientation levels are described briefly below.
•
The Quick orientation requires only 9 clicks to complete and is well-suited for fast
orientations.
•
The Standard orientation requires 20 clicks and provides a level of accuracy suitable
for most systems.
•
The Fine orientation involves clicking on 80 individual crosses. While the Fine setting
is the most time-consuming to complete, it is recommended for higher-resolution
systems that may require a more precise orientation.
3. Once you have determined the orientation level you prefer, select it by clicking in the
appropriate circle.
4. Click the Next button.
RPSB 1800/1802 Installation Guide
41
A large gray rectangular image will almost entirely fill the SMART Board screen. This
screen will contain the number of crosses associated with the orientation level chosen.
5. Follow the on-screen instructions, pressing your finger squarely on the yellow center of
each red cross, in the order specified by the large white arrow. To begin the orientation,
press on the cross highlighted in red at the upper-left corner of the screen. You will hear a
beep and the next cross in the series will be highlighted in red.
NOTE: If you press on the crosses out of sequence or inaccurately, a Bad Orientation
Point dialog box will appear. To correct the bad orientation, select the OK button at the
bottom of the screen using the mouse attached to your computer. This is necessary
because the system has lost Board-awareness while orienting.
When you have pressed on the final cross, the Orientation screen will disappear.
6. Test if the orientation was successful by moving your finger across the SMART
Board. The cursor should track your finger very closely and appear directly beneath
the center of your fingertip.

Appendix A: Maintenance and Transportation
Cleaning Cabinet Components and Mirrors
Mirrors and cabinet components should be periodically dusted using a soft cloth. All mirrors
can be lightly cleaned using a standard glass cleaner and a soft, clean cloth.
The rear surface of the SMART Board is well-protected from handling by its location on the
inside of the cabinet. However, if it must be dusted, or if a mark has been made on its
surface, it can be wiped gently with a soft cloth and standard glass cleaner. Do not spray the
glass cleaner directly onto the surface; spray it lightly on the cloth, then gently dab the back
surface of the SMART Board until the marks are removed.
WARNING: Do not, under any circumstances, apply isopropyl alcohol, varsol, water or
acetone to the rear surface of the SMART Board. If any of these fluids come into contact with
this surface, the SMART Board becomes unusable.
Cleaning the Writing Surface
To clean the writing surface of the SMART Board, use a standard glass cleaner. Spray the
cleaning fluid on the SMART Board surface and immediately wipe with a paper towel or soft
cloth. If a permanent marker has been used, try rubbing the spot with a cloth dampened with
isopropyl alcohol. Then use a standard glass cleaner to thoroughly clean the surface.
Preventing Damage to the Writing Surface
While the SMART Board is very durable, sharp objects can scratch or cut the surface. Sharp
writing instruments, such as ball point pens or fine-pointed pens, can damage the surface if
enough pressure is applied. Keep these types of pens away from the SMART Board, and
avoid abrasive erasers and cleaning materials.
Transporting the RPSB System
When you transport the RPSB, it is important to ship the cabinet in the upright position only.
In addition, the SMART Board should never be laid face down.
Follow the preparation procedures outlined below and the RPSB should arrive at its
destination without mishap.
To prepare the RPSB for transport to another room:
1. Unlock the cabinet’s casters by pushing up on the caster locks.
2. Disconnect power, communications and network cables as necessary.
3. Slide the Pen Tray shelf in and close the Pen Tray shelf door.
4. Return the rear mirror of the RPSB 1800/1802 to its original transport position:

then out from the keyholes at the top of the side brackets.
WARNINGS:
• Do not touch the inside surface of the screen! This surface is easily smudged
and very difficult to restore. You should also protect it from anything that might
scratch or harm it. If you do inadvertently smudge this surface, wipe it carefully
with a soft cloth and alcohol-free glass cleaner. Do not spray the glass cleaner
directly onto the surface; spray it lightly on the cloth, then gently rub the back
surface of the SMART Board until the marks are removed.
• Do not use isopropyl alcohol, varsol, water or acetone to clean this surface!
These substances will render your SMART Board unusable.
5. Remove the screen mounting bracket at the top to the cabinet, as shown in the figure
below. The three mounting screws are fastened from inside the cabinet. Use the 1/8"
Allen key provided with the cabinet.
6. To reconnect the SMART Board to the cabinet, re-attach the top screen mounting
bracket loosely.
7. Locate the two corner studs and lift the Board up and onto the cabinet key holes via
the two back studs (see diagram on opposite page for key hole and stud locations).
8. Replace the two upper cap screws and lock washers previously removed from the
corners.
9. Once all screws are aligned, tighten the cap screws and upper bracket screws
securely.

Resolution: The number of displayed pixels per inch. Common resolutions are 640 x 480,
800 x 600, and 1024 x 768.
RJ11-6 connector: The connector end of a MOD6 serial cable. A close look at a RJ11-6
connector will reveal six tiny contacts set into six slots. May also be known as an RJ12.
Serial communications port: A general-purpose computer socket to which you can connect
serial devices, including mice and modems.
Serial port adaptor, 25-pin: A device that accepts an RJ11-6 connector at one end and
connects to a DB-25 serial port on a computer at the other. The device allows physically
different components to be connected to each other, enabling RPSB users to connect the Pen
Tray to the computer’s DB-25 male serial port.

Serial port adaptor, 9-pin: A device that accepts an RJ11-6 connector at one end and
connects to a DB-9 serial port on a computer at the other. The device allows physically
different components to be connected to each other, enabling RPSB users to connect the Pen
Tray to the computer.
SMART Aware: Software that automatically runs with the SMART Board driver and allows
specific third-party conferencing applications, such as Microsoft® NetMeeting™ and Intel®
ProShare™, to recognize tools from the SMART Pen Tray as integral software components.
Aware allows you to extend the unique presentation capabilities of the RPSB to many other
popular conferencing applications.
SMART Board driver: The software that drives, or activates, a SMART Board. The software
allows you to use your finger as a mouse, annotate over an application with electronic ink and
use SMART Notebook and other Board-aware applications.
Throw distance: The distance a projector must be set from the projection surface to cast a
square image of a particular size.
True resolution: The native resolution at which a projector has been designed to operate
without software enhancement. Projectors may operate in other resolutions, but the quality of
the projected image may suffer. For example, a projector’s optimal resolution may be 640 x
480 pixels (VGA), 800 x 600 pixels (SVGA) or 1024 x 768 pixels (XGA).
