DGT Smart Board has many applications and setups!

The DGT Smart Board is an electronic chess board with many functionalities.

Just like the wooden electronic DGT boards, it knows everything that is happening on the board at all times and thus makes live broadcasting of chess games possible. But it has many other uses in addition to live broadcasting as listed below. It can be used at home, club and tournaments.

The DGT Smart Board is accurate, fast, very energy efficient, and the net weight is just 2 kg!

Smart Boards have many applications and setups:
