iZiggi-HD – the document camera designed for iPad and Android Tablet – is the next evolution in affordable doc cam technology from IPEVO. Traditional doc cams often need to be connected to a computer via USB. But with the exciting rise of tablet computing in more and more classrooms, it's time to harness the full educational potential of tablet. iZiggi-HD connects wirelessly to iPad or Android Tablet and skips the computer to stream live, high-resolution images of documents, textbooks, handwritten notes, pictures, devices and 3D objects for teaching and presenting. So whether you're in the classroom, in the office, or anywhere else, iZiggi-HD is the best way to share material with iPad and Android Tablet.
The live image from iZiggi-HD can be quickly and easily displayed on iPad or Android Tablet using your existing WiFi connection. With wireless freedom, the educational options become limitless. Feel free to walk amongst your students to achieve the interactive learning and close, one-on-one collaborations that wouldn't be possible when you're restricted to a wired computer connection.
Plus, you can also draw and annotate on the live image using iPad's touchscreen, transforming iPad into an interactive whiteboard when iPad is connected to a projection screen. All in the palm of your hand!
With iZiggi-HD's wireless capability, your teaching horizons expand considerably. Instead of keeping the doc cam on the teacher's desk, you and your students can use it anywhere. Bring the camera to your students instead of the other way around for a one-on-one session or to capture their large or fragile work (as in art class). Or, bring the doc cam to a non-moveable object that would be impossible to capture otherwise. You can even take iZiggi-HD outside for a special field trip. None of these would be possible with a traditional, permanently-stationed doc cam. You never know where the next interaction could take place while iZiggi-HD sends a live image to your iPad or Android Tablet. iZiggi-HD can also wirelessly connect to PC or Mac, giving you all these wireless benefits for computer use as well.
With the help of Apple TV Airplay or Chromecast, your image feed and IPEVO Whiteboard changes can be projected onto the big screen, turning iPad or Andriod Tablet into a portable interactive whiteboard without a wired connection to get in your way. Teachers aren't stuck at the front of the classroom, and are free to roam the classroom and engage with students. And on the other hand, students don't need to approach the board to interact with the lesson. They can simply draw and annotate on iPad or Andriod Tablet without leaving their seat, and their work is reflected on the big screen for everyone to see. Interactions are fluid, immediate, and more impactful than ever.
iZiggi-HD supports a variety of resolutions when connected via Wi-Fi for video streaming. These include 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x720 (720p HD), and even 1600x1200. And if 1600x1200 isn't quite large enough to view all the details, you can also pinch-zoom on your iPad to get an even closer look.
For the elderly or those with vision impairments, it's a pain to read newspapers, magazines, or even greeting cards and bills with small font. But with the wireless iZiggi-HD, you can place the document camera alongside the reading material and read the text through iPad. Enjoy the easy pinch-zoom and drag features on iPad to achieve a bigger, clearer view of small text. iZiggi-HD and iPad deliver better accessibility options, whether it's for visual impairments or simply to spare tired eyes.
iZiggi-HD continues a signature IPEVO doc cam feature: simple, limitless capture options with a multi-jointed swing-arm. Thanks to three articulating joints, you can position the camera at most any height and angle – all by hand and without screws or knobs. Plus, iZiggi-HD's swiveling head means getting the proper orientation for readable text is just as simple to achieve. It's never difficult to obtain exactly the right image with iZiggi-HD.
iZiggi-HD is smart enough to capture high-quality images on its own, but sometimes you need to customize your capture. The camera body features an exposure toggle and an autofocus switch so you can tweak your real-time capture with a few button presses. Switch between Continuous focus – a "set it and forget it" mode where the camera keeps setting the best focus – and Single focus, which is best for static subjects, such as text on a sheet of paper. Another essential feature is iZiggi-HD's built-in battery, which will keep your wireless presentation powered.
iZiggi-HD features two USB ports – one for iZiggi-HD's camera (so it can connect wirelessly to your device), and another for any USB storage device. Take advantage of both ports to share access to files on your storage device with your iPad while you're simultaneously viewing the real-time image from the camera. A connected storage device is ideal for saving snapshots from the camera or even annotations you've created with IPEVO Whiteboard.
Because your iPad, Android Tablet, PC or Mac connects to iZiggi-HD via WiFi, you are disconnected from the Internet when using iZiggi-HD. However, iZiggi-HD can connect to your WiFi network and thus link your device to the Internet. In just a couple of straightforward steps, you can keep your device connected to the Internet when it's linked to iZiggi-HD.
Designed with educators in mind, the free IPEVO Whiteboard app for iPad allows you to draw and add text directly onto iZiggi-HD's real-time image stream. An easy-to-use touchscreen toolkit gives you the power to add emphasis, highlight important text passages, and add text boxes to clarify teaching material. In addition to live images, Whiteboard can also use blank whiteboards, iPad's real-time camera image, or a Photo Library image. These annotated "boards" can be swapped between as well as saved for future reference.
Update: Android Tablet Support! Whiteboard is now compatible with Andriod Tablet through the IPEVO Whiteboard App for Android Tablet. Most of Whiteboard's functions and tools are available in this streamlined Android version. If you use a Android Tablet at your school or business, take advantage of this special version of Whiteboard – still available for free, of course.
When it comes to recording e-learning videos, blogs and tutorials involving objects on the table, your options are limited – that is, without iZiggi-HD. The IPEVO Whiteboard iPad app can record iZiggi-HD's live video stream as well as voiceover/audio and any annotation you create. The video file is then saved to your iPad's Photo Library. It's easy, it's integrated, and it's the best way to demonstrate 3D objects which cannot be drawn or marked upon. Don't settle for unsteady handheld camera phone video which requires additional editing to add annotation or voiceover. And don't settle for cameras and stands which can't capture at a downward angle. iZiggi-HD has everything you need to record videos in one package.
For times when a WiFi connection isn't available or feasible, you always have the option to connect iZiggi-HD's camera directly to PC or Mac via any standard USB port and the included extension cable. iZiggi-HD works just like our popular Ziggi-HD when connected to a computer. You'll enjoy the same image customizations, snapshot management, Full Screen mode, and other IPEVO Presenter features available with our original doc cam.
iZiggi-HD's high-resolution 5 Megapixel camera can achieve up to an amazing 2592 x 1944 pixels when directly connected to PC or Mac. And included IPEVO Presenter software provides useful tools and customizations to get the most out of your IPEVO doc cam experience. Practical tools include Live View, which delivers immediate real-time video of what you're capturing, and Full Screen, which fills the entire screen for lessons and presentations. And there's much more: an up to 6x digital zoom; 360-degree rotation; custom and automatic exposure control; multiple resolutions; the ability to record video; multiple doc camera support; and continuous and one-click focus. There's even a Review mode for managing your snapshots and video.
|Camera mode||Review mode||
Camera (default): provides a window with the live video image from the camera
Review: review snapshots and video you have taken. Sort and organize your files or even export images to PDF
Full Screen: IPEVO doc cam's image will take up the entire screen. This is particularly useful for projecting the image in classroom or conference settings.
iZiggi-HD takes everything great about the IPEVO doc cam tradition and makes it wireless for iPad. Now your teaching and presenting aren't confined to a wired connection with PC or Mac.
