As we work our way deeper into the digital revolution, distance education and remote learning have never been more popular. IPEVO has created a way to make voice chat conferencing simpler and better: the X1-N6 Internet Conference Station. And we think educators and businesspeople will really enjoy the value it delivers.
In our previous entry, we introduced the WS-01 Wireless Station for iPad. It allows your IPEVO doc cam (Ziggi or Point 2 View) to wirelessly stream to iPad. And a key part of that equation is the IPEVO Whiteboard app. You can get it for free from the Apple App Store
IPEVO document cameras including the Point 2 View and Ziggi have won over teachers and businesspeople around the world. Now we are pleased to present a great new way to use your doc cam: wirelessly with your iPad! With the WS-01 Wireless Station for iPad, you can stream real-time video right to your iPad.

IPEVO’s family of Perch stands have found themselves in a remarkable number of venues. But in the case of Tian Cai Refreshment Saloon — and yes, that’s the best name for a restaurant ever — Perch S found a home very close by our headquarters in Taipei, in a place we visit all the time. And that makes this story a little more special.
Zoomtext is a great software which integrates multiple features for visually impaired population. With the new Zoomtext 10, you can now setup an USB web cam as an inexpensive CCTV alternative. Here is an example of how to setup an IPEVO Ziggi USB doc cam with Zoomtext.
Heard of Wishpool? It’s IPEVO’s new way of getting education technology into the hands of more teachers. And we’re extremely pleased to announce a big milestone in this initiative. Even though it’s only been going on for a month or so, we’ve already received 500 wish stories from educators! And each day, we’re trying our best to make as many of those wishes come true as we can.
When a Westerner hears “Nikkei,” he or she might first think about the Nikkei 225 index which measures the Japanese stock market. And that’s true, but Nikkei is bigger than just the daily highs and lows of the market. Nikkei, Inc. is actually one of the biggest media corporations in Japan, and they put out a variety of respected publications for finance, business, and other industries. And one of those publications mentioned the Point 2 View USB Document Camera!
Tricia Fuglestad is a visual art teacher who has done some truly innovative things in her art class with IPEVO’s Point 2 View USB Document Camera. And as it turns out, she had plenty to teach us (and potential Wishpoolers) about what’s possible with our favorite featherlight doc cam. What can you do with IPEVO ed tech in the classroom? Maybe the better question is: what can’t you do!
We recently heard from a customer named Pat who told us about her experience with the Ziggi USB Document Camera. Pat let us in on a new way to use Ziggi — as an aid for the visually impaired. It’s a nifty story that might help others, and we’d like to share it with you. Pat told us about a program called ZoomText which, when used with a webcam, allows significant zoom-in and other visual enhancements of images in order to display text or objects nice and big on the computer screen.
