The DGT Smart Board was specifically developed to be more affordable than wooden DGT boards, to make live chess broadcasting more accessible and bring chess to a wider audience. The DGT Smart Board is accurate, fast and very energy efficient.
The boards are made of high-quality plastic, providing the same great functionality and user experience as existing wooden e-Boards.

It is available with or without indices.
DGT Smart Boards are compatible with all DGT electronic chess sets. An affordable plastic set was developed for it, but the board also looks great with the wooden Timeless set. The board’s size is 520 x 520 mm, with tournament-size squares of 55 x 55 mm. It weighs just 2 kg.
