The StarBoard BT-1 Freedom
Tablet is a lightweight, portable presentation
device from Hitachi. The StarBoard BT-1 can
be used with all StarBoard presentation systems.
It is used to annotate presentations and run
computer applications in meetings rooms and
classrooms while moving about in the room.
The StarBoard BT-1 communicates to the computer
running the StarBoard Software through a wireless
Bluetooth interface. The BT-1 is battery operated,
as is its pen. Consequently, it is a completely
wireless device providing complete freedom
to move about the room while delivering presentations.
The Bluetooth receiver is a small device that
plugs into any USB port on the computer.
While looking at the projected image or plasma
display, the presenter can move about the
room with the simple pen on tablet interface

application. Thus the operation is much like
using a desktop mouse, except much more natural
for writing notes and performing other operations
with the pen input device. The StarBoard BT-1
System is a full presentation system with
the complete StarBoard
software suite for mobile presenters to
use with laptops, or as an upgrade for rooms
already equipped with computer, mouse and
