This chapter provides additional considerations and details for installing your interactive whiteboard
system.
Choosing a location
Choose a location for your interactive whiteboard system that’s far from bright light sources, such as
windows and strong overhead lighting. Bright light sources can cause distracting shadows on your
interactive whiteboard and can reduce the contrast of the projected image.
Select a wall with a flat, regular surface and sufficient clearance to accommodate your interactive
whiteboard system. Install the projector and your interactive whiteboard on the same flat surface. For
7
CHAPT ER 2
Installing your interactive whiteboard system
best presentation alignment, mount your interactive whiteboard system in a location that’s central to
your audience’s viewing direction.
Ensure that there is enough room along the interactive whiteboard system’s left side to access the
Power button of the appliance that’s mounted to the back of the interactive whiteboard.
For mobile or adjustable installation options, contact your authorized SMART reseller.
WARNING
l
Refer to your interactive whiteboard system’s specifications (available at
smarttech.com/support) for its weight. Check your local building codes to ensure that your
wall can support this weight, and use appropriate mounting hardware for your wall type.
l
If you are installing the interactive whiteboard system on drywall, use all the included toggle
bolts. If one of the bracket holes aligns with a wall stud, use appropriate hardware in that hole
instead of a toggle bolt.
l
When mounting the projector boom on a framed or hollow wall, attach both the mounting
bracket and the safety tether to a stud to safely support the projector’s weight. If you use only
drywall anchors, the drywall can fail, resulting in possible personal injury, and damage to the
product which may not be covered by your warranty.
If you’re replacing a SMART Board 500 or 600 series interactive whiteboard with the SMART Board
800 series interactive whiteboard on drywall, you must remove the wall-mount bracket and mounting
hardware, and then install all the mounting hardware and brackets supplied with your SMART Board
800 series interactive whiteboard instead.
To help ensure that your interactive whiteboard is mounted correctly, make sure the colors of the wallmount hanger on the back of the interactive whiteboard and the wall-mount bracket are the same.
Choosing a height
SMART includes a mounting template with each interactive whiteboard system. If you lose this
template, contact your authorized SMART reseller. Using this template ensures that you can do the
following:
l
Mount the projector at a safe height for head space clearance, while maintaining enough space
for airflow and installation access above the unit.
l
Position the projector at the correct height above your interactive whiteboard to align the
projected image with the touch screen.

This section explains how to secure the different components of your interactive whiteboard system.
Locking the pen tray to your interactive whiteboard
To learn how to lock the pen tray to your interactive whiteboard, see the SMART Board 800 series
interactive whiteboard user’s guide (smarttech.com/kb/144817).
Securing the projector to the boom
To learn how to secure the SMART UF75 or SMART UF75w projector to the boom, see the included
SMART Board 800i5e-SMP interactive whiteboard system installation guide
(smarttech.com/kb/157703).
Installing your audio system
If you purchase the SBA-L projection audio system as an accessory, it comes with two SBA-L
speakers and mounting brackets. Your audio system also includes a switching power supply and the
cabling required to connect your audio system to your interactive whiteboard and projector.
Before you connect the audio system to the projector, you must install the speaker brackets,
speakers and speaker cable clips. Mount the speakers directly to your interactive whiteboard.
Connect the speakers to the projector connection panel using the dual-channel (left and right) RCA
plug-to-3.5 mm phone connector cable included with the speakers.
To learn how to install your audio system, see the SBA-L Projection Audio System installation guide
(smarttech.com/kb/142552).
Routing the cables
When connecting cables from your SMART UF75 projector to your interactive whiteboard system,
make sure that all cables pass along the top of the interactive whiteboard wall-mounting bracket and
then down the side of the interactive whiteboard.
When connecting cables from a SMART UF75w projector to the interactive whiteboard, make sure
that all cables pass between the two interactive whiteboard wall-mounting brackets. Space your wallmounting brackets 4" (10.2 cm) apart to provide full support for the weight of your interactive
whiteboard.

Adjusting the image
Refer to these notes when adjusting the projected image as described in the included SMART Board
800i5e-SMP interactive whiteboard system installation guide (smarttech.com/kb/157703).
l
While adjusting the projected image size, shape and location, use the projector’s default
background so that you can see the full projected image clearly. Don’t use other images, which
might be cropped or scaled by the projector and could result in a misleading projected image
size, shape and location.
l
Use the mechanical adjustments described in the installation document to make all physical
image adjustments. Don’t use the projector’s on-screen menu options during the projector
alignment process.
l
Be aware that as you tilt the projector up or lower its mounting boom to raise the image, the
entire projected image increases or decreases in size, especially at the bottom of the projected
image.
l
When adjusting keystone (tilt), ensure that the top and bottom edges of the image are
horizontal before you position the left and right edges of the image relative to your interactive
whiteboard.
l
When you move the projector forward or backward on the boom to make the image larger or
smaller, you might need to tilt or turn the projector slightly to keep the image square. Loosen the
lever slightly to aid in this adjustment.
l
To fine-tune the image, you might need to repeat all steps described in the installation
document in smaller increments.

Troubleshooting your interactive whiteboard system
Transporting your interactive whiteboard system
Save your original SMART Board interactive whiteboard packaging so that it’s available if you need to
transport your interactive whiteboard system. When required, repack it with all of the original
packaging. This packaging was designed to provide optimal shock and vibration protection. If you no
longer have your original packaging, purchase the same packaging directly from your authorized
SMART reseller.
If you prefer to use your own packaging materials, make sure you adequately protect your unit. Make
sure that the projector lens and mirror are protected against any physical contact or pressure which
may damage the projector’s optics. Ship your interactive whiteboard in an upright position to deter
shippers from placing heavy objects on it.

l
After the projector executes a command, it generates a response.
l
To prevent buffer overrun, don’t send another command until you receive the next command
prompt.
Value-based command methods
Absolute values and adjustment values
You can use the command’s target range to set an absolute value for a command or cause an
adjustment to be made to the current value. To create an adjustment command, add a plus (+) or
minus (-) symbol instead of the equal symbol (=) before the value change you want to enter.
All absolute values you enter must be within the command target range, and all adjustment values
must equal a number within the command target range.
See the following examples for adjusting projector brightness:
>get brightness
brightness=55
>set brightness=65
brightness=65
>set brightness+5
brightness=70
86
APPENDIX
B
Remotely managing your system through an RS-232 serial interface
>set brightness-15
brightness=55
Video source specification values
You can use the source input field described in Source selection controls on the next page in a
command to set an absolute value or adjustment value to a source other than the active source. You
can do this while the selected source is inactive, but the source device must be connected or you will
receive an invalid command response.
See the following examples, where both an HDMI connector and a VGA 1 input are connected:
>set input=hdmi
input=hdmi
>set brightness vga1=65
brightness vga1=65
>set brightness vga1-7
brightness vga1=58
Power state controls
These commands put the projector in and out of Standby mode and request the projector’s current
power state. The projector’s power state determines whether certain commands are available at that
time. These settings are available even when the projector is in Standby mode.
