What’s the Difference between an Digital Interactive Whiteboard and an Electronic Whiteboard?

Electronic interactive whiteboard is a generic term for hardware that’s connected to your computer and displays your computer’s desktop, allowing you to interact with the information at the interactive whiteboard instead of on your computer. So, you can open applications, surf the web, write on the interactive surface, write over your notes, save the notes, watch videos, record sound, and use the camera attached to the interactive whiteboard.

Electronic whiteboard is also a generic term for hardware that’s connected to your computer, but all you can do with an electronic whiteboard is use dry-eraser markers on the board and then save the notes to your computer. You can’t display your computer desktop or any other software on an electronic whiteboard, or use your finger or other tools to control or interact with your software.

What is the difference between all of the different interactive digital display brands?

What features are most important to you? Make sure you are not overpaying for features you will never use. Here are some factors to consider when choosing the right whiteboard:

Durability: Some boards are incredibly durable and can withstand punctures, permanent marker, water etc…


Dry erase friendly


Wireless connectivity

Direct printing from board

iPad and Android compatible (comes with app)

Resolution: do you need a very high resolution like 1080P or 4K? Most people do not, but some demanding applications require the utmost clarity, and in this case, the interactive LCD or LED screen is the way to go.

Ease of use: some boards are very easy to use and have “toned down” software, while others have much more advanced software with features such as

Dual touch and even multi touch

Multi-user (more than one person can use the board at the same time.

Multi force (board senses how hard you are pressing and adjusts the line thickness accordingly)

Video conferencing

Hand writing recognition
