Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
IPEVO, Inc., a maker and designer of technology products for education and business, has announced the release of Ziggi-HD USB Document Camera. Ziggi-HD offers professional-level, real-time image capture of documents, textbooks, handwritten notes, electronic devices and more. Ziggi-HD is now available through IPEVO's online store at http://www.ipevo.com at a price of $94.
Ziggi-HD follows in the footsteps of IPEVO's original Ziggi camera, launched in late 2011, which has been embraced by the educational technology (ed tech) community. Ziggi-HD borrows from the original Ziggi's design by incorporating a multi-jointed stand and swiveling head. These features facilitate document and textbook capture as well as the capture of LCD screens on devices like smartphones and Apple's iPad. As such, Ziggi-HD is designed for education in the classroom, tech demonstrations, business meetings, and similar.
Ziggi-HD improves on the original Ziggi by way of a 5.0 Megapixel camera, which allows for extremely high-resolution, high-definition images up to 2592 x 1944 pixels. These images are ideal for projection onto a large screen in a classroom or conference room. The camera also features a built-in microphone for web conferencing and distance education with applications like Skype.
As with Ziggi, an application called IPEVO Presenter is packaged with the camera. This software offers a toolkit of settings and image tweaks to enable users to customize their experience. A few of these customizations include autofocus, auto and manual exposure, mirroring, and up to a 6x digital zoom. Presenter also provides an easy way to take and organize snapshots. Integrated support for Evernote, a multimedia notetaking application, is also a highlight of the Presenter software. Ziggi-HD snapshots can be bundled and sent to a user's Evernote notebook with a few clicks.
"We're very grateful for the enthusiastic response we've received for Ziggi within the ed tech community," said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design of IPEVO. "And as we spoke to customers, we realized how we could better meet their needs with a new and improved model. Ziggi-HD offers stunning high-definition images, more resolutions, and a built-in microphone for distance education and webinars, which have become increasingly prevalent. Ziggi-HD furthers the Ziggi camera's reputation as a professional-level doc cam at an ultra-affordable price, something which is crucial in a time of shrinking school budgets and tight economic times."
IPEVO is now accepting orders for the Ziggi-HD USB Document Camera online at http://www.ipevo.com. School purchase orders are accepted, and details are available on the website.
