The Clayton Center’s meeting facility has completed an audio-visual upgrade to offer progressive and interactive technology to its business clients.

The latest addition to the Center’s amenities, a SMART Board® 885ix interactive whiteboard system, was recently installed in the Center’s Four Oaks Meeting Room on the second floor of the conference center.

SMART Board technology allows users to project images from their laptop onto an interactive whiteboard.  Presenters may use a touch system to draw directly on the whiteboard with digital ink to update and make notes on the projected images of documents such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.  Documents updated on the whiteboard may be saved in pdf or PowerPoint files for distribution during or after the meeting.

“I am excited to be able to offer the SMART Board technology to our clientele at The Clayton Center,” Martha Vandergriff, conference center coordinator, said. “Meetings here can be transformed from passive presentations into interactive and engaging work sessions.”

The Clayton Center Auditorium and Conference Center is located in historic downtown Clayton, just a quick drive from Raleigh. The Center, which features more than 12,000 square feet diverse meeting and event space, hosts an average of three events daily, ranging from corporate meetings, expos and social events to church services and wedding receptions.
