For those familiar with IPEVO and our range of document cameras and software, you’ll probably know about our free Visualizer software and the tons of features packed into it. In fact, we are always working on adding new features to Visualizer and fine-tuning the current ones based on feedback and suggestions we received from our users so as to cater to their different needs. And now, we are excited to introduce you to the latest release of our Visualizer software that has a refreshed look and more features.Note: For optimum performance, we suggest that you use Visualizer with IPEVO document cameras.

Larger User Interface

The latest version of Visualizer includes a feature that allows users to switch to a larger user interface. This “enlarged” version of Visualizer has a simpler interface with bigger icons that was specially designed for our low vision users. This is part of our ongoing efforts to increase the usability of our products and software for those with low vision so that they will be able to benefit from our affordable solutions.

Zoom

Zoom in on your materials by as much as 12x using the Zoom feature of Visualizer. From educational to business settings, from zooming on hard-to-read text, intricate patterns of artwork, needlework, origami to more, you can enlarge details of your materials for all to see and do away with crowding around tables for your teaching, presentations or demonstrations.

Zoom in for all to see. Now there’s no need to crowd around tables!

Magnify

Magnify is a new option added to Visualizer for zooming your materials. It differs from Zoom in the way it enlarges the live image. In Zoom, the whole of the live image is being blown up, meaning you’ll lose sight of the entire object if you zoomed in too much. Whereas in Magnify, you get to choose which part of the live image you wish to enlarge. This provides you with the convenience of magnifying selected areas of your live image while keeping the entire object in view.

Reading Aids

As its name suggests, you get tools such as line marker and magnifier to aid you in reading with this newly added feature. A single press on the icon will display a line marker designed to help you keep your place while reading. It comes in really handy when you are doing group readings as it makes it easier for your audience to follow. Reading would also be more enjoyable and less frustrating for those with low vision with the help of this line marker. A magnifier is also included for enlarging your reading text. You would find this extremely useful for reading fine print of your medical prescriptions, mails, important documents and more.Note: Reading Aids is only functional in Snapshot and Video Recording mode.

Introducing the latest feature of IPEVO Presenter — Live Broadcast! It’s one feature that we are really excited about as it allows users to broadcast Presenter’s live stream in real-time and share the broadcast with anyone you want. We’ve spent quite some time exploring the different possibilities of using this newly added feature, and now, we’d like to present you with a list of some of our favorite uses!

Bridging the learning distance

At the top of our list is using Presenter’s Live Broadcast with any IPEVO doc cam to bridge the distance of learning by bringing lessons to students who can’t be physically present! Be it demonstrating science experiments, modeling students’ work, walking students through music scores, teaching craftwork or others, you can bring your lessons live to any student without compromising on the details. Simply position your IPEVO doc cam, start your lesson, and broadcast it instantly!

Live streaming projects

We’d also recommend using Presenter’s Live Broadcast to do live streaming projects as it is much more convenient and less complicated to set up than most conventional ways. You can set up a broadcast session and share the live stream in real-time within a few minutes by selecting a few settings within Presenter. So, set up an egg incubator, position your IPEVO doc cam, incubate the eggs and watch them hatch. Or, build an ant farm and observe their amazing tunnel building skills. You can even monitor the growth of baby owls in an owl house! Now start capturing and sharing natural wonders with IPEVO doc cams and Presenter’s Live Broadcast!

Exploring the microscopic world

While you can use Presenter’s Live Broadcast with any IPEVO doc cam, there’s a very unique use that is only achievable if you’re having an IPEVO P2V doc cam — broadcasting and sharing the microscopic images of organisms! By attaching your P2V to a microscope’s eyepiece using the Microscope Adapter Set, you can pull stunning images right from the microscope, project and then share them to anyone through Presenter’s Live Broadcast. From plant cells to animal cells, and from fungi to bacteria, have fun exploring the microscopic world!

Explore the microscopic world

The list we’d mention above is by no means exhaustive, and if you’ve other wonderful or ingenious ways of using Presenter’s Live Broadcast, we welcome you to share it with us!
