Here’s a fast, easy, and most of all inexpensive way to build a DIY charging station. Tips on the Right Charger […]
“What’s IS-01 all about?” We get that question a lot from teachers. And while a ton of useful information can be found on the web page for IPEVO’s IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System, we know it’s a lot to digest. So, we gathered up the most frequently asked questions to share rapid-fire style in this quick blog post.
The free IPEVO Whiteboard app (available for Mac, PC and now for Android) gives you the ability to annotate and emphasize your material, taking lessons and presentations to the next level. And to make sure you can take full advantage of Whiteboard’s features and tools, we’ve put together a 3-part video tutorial series. Check ‘em out, and in a few minutes you’ll be able to master everything Whiteboard has to offer.
Part 1: Board Functions

Dr. Hatti is a dentist from Japan who needed a better way to share teeth X-rays with his patients. He found a clever solution to his clinic’s problem courtesy of the IPEVO iZiggi-HD Wireless Document Camera.
“A few key features of iZiggi-HD interested me with respect to sharing X-rays,” Dr. Hatti told us. “iZiggi can be connected wirelessly via WiFi, so I don’t have to shuffle it between computers. That’s a real advantage for me because I see different patients in different rooms throughout the day. iZiggi-HD is also compatible with iPad, which is a big plus because I’ve found that the iPad Mini 2 is the perfect size to show patients visual material.”
Once Dr. Hatti captures a patient’s teeth on X-ray film, he lays it on a flat light box (for proper illumination) and then positions the iZiggi-HD camera in order to capture the X-ray. Via the IPEVO Whiteboard app and iZiggi-HD’s WiFi capability, the live image feed is displayed on iPad for the patient to view. Dr. Hatti experimented with a few different camera setups in order to find the best way to capture the film, as he explains.
