IP-1 – the Interactive Pen for IW Series Interactive Whiteboard Systems – is one more example of IPEVO's commitment to improve user experience with our products. IP-1 is a shorter, lighter version of the original IW2's Interactive Pen and is easier to hold and operate. Ideal for younger learners with smaller hands, IP-1 is also designed to ease hand strain for adults. Just as with IW2's Interactive Pen, IP-1 allows teachers and students to draw, perform mouse clicks, and control the computer's cursor. IP-1 is the enhanced way to enjoy all the benefits of the IW2 Wireless Interactive Whiteboard System.
Note: The IP-1 Interactive Pen is compatible only with the IPEVO IW2 Wireless Interactive Whiteboard System (sold separately). IP-1 will not work with IS-01.
We've redesigned IW2's Interactive Pen from the ground up, making it shorter and lighter and therefore easier and less cumbersome to use. Now younger elementary school and even preschool students can join in on the fun and learning. And regardless of how IP-1 is held, the user can achieve a solid, intuitive grip that's feels just as normal as holding a pencil. Teachers can share in the benefits, too – IP-1's reduced weight and better grip reduces the risk of hand strain and fatigue from prolonged use.
In direct response to requests from our teachers, the use of multiple simultaneous pens is now supported on IW2. Up to four users can work together on the projected whiteboard surface. Write, draw, and annotate on content at the same time for a truly collaborative learning environment, increased engagement, and better interactivity.
To use IW2’s multi-pen function, you’ll need to download and install the latest version of the IW Driver (with included IPEVO Annotator software), which can be found at this link. The ability to use multiple pens is finally here, so grab a few IP-1s and get ready to open up even more possibilities for your IW2 Wireless Interactive Whiteboard System.
Note: Multi-pen functionality is only available for IW2. It is not supported on IS-01. To learn more about this function, please visit the IPEVO Annotator website.
Our redesign of the Interactive Pen didn't just stop with the length and weight. Buttons on IP-1 have been rearranged to provide a better user experience with respect to the pen's shortened length. The very handy IPEVO Button, which allows you to perform normal mouse actions without having to physically tap or swipe on the projection screen, has been conveniently placed above the Power switch, making it easier to use than ever before.
Beyond the differences we've mentioned, IP-1 functions exactly like your original IW2’s Interactive Pen, and so it can also function as a replacement pen in case your original ever breaks or goes missing. Keep teaching disruptions to a minimum by having a few IP-1s on hand. As busy teachers of young (and not so young) children know, keeping a spare or two might just come in handy!
No extra Wireless Receiver is required when you use IP-1 for multi-pen functions or as a replacement pen. You’ll only need the original Wireless Receiver that came with your IW2.
