Anybody successfully incorporated interactive whiteboards into their design process?

Our team is revamping the design room. Our current process is to sketch on whiteboards or butcher paper and photograph, then email the results. When we can borrow a Panaboard (same thing, but captures images to a USB stick) we use that.We'd also like to collaborate with others remotely.
In the past I've used Promethean and SMART boards, mainly for testing since our products are used with them in classrooms, but haven't done much with them for design. The projector usually gets in the way (although top mounted short-throw projectors fix that), and it didn't feel natural, though I didn't really give it a chance.
Any advice from designers who regularly use them? Any particular models?
