The release of Kaptivo Self-Hosted and Kaptivo HDMI underscores our commitment to customer-centric solutions. We have listened to AV Consultants and Network Security Managers to provide solutions that best suit the needs of the market.

Kaptivo, the company that produces advanced cameras and software to transform any whiteboard into an online collaboration system, today announced the release of Kaptivo Self-Hosted and Kaptivo HDMI. Recognizing customer demand for expanded connectivity options, Kaptivo has expanded its portfolio of whiteboard cameras, which attach to the top of any whiteboard, automatically saving images and securely sharing content in real time via livestream to any web browser on any device or via video conference integration.

The need for comprehensive collaboration tools coincides with the increasing demand for technology-powered offices and classrooms. Despite the availability of video conferencing systems and interactive displays, the traditional dry-erase whiteboard has remained a preferred ideation tool for enterprises and educators alike. Although standard in nearly organization, whiteboards have proven inadequate when remote sharing and digitally saving content are needed.

Employees and educators often attempt to save and share whiteboards using phone or web cameras, which produce poor-quality images that show glare and obstructions. Alternatively, they try to use costly interactive displays that require training, apps, and special pens. With Kaptivo, individuals can realize the full potential of digital collaboration using their existing whiteboard while integrating seamlessly into approved corporate technology and security policies.

“The release of Kaptivo Self-Hosted and Kaptivo HDMI underscores our commitment to customer-centric solutions. We have listened to AV Consultants and Network Security Managers to provide solutions that best suit the needs of the market,“ said Nic Lawrence, Co-Founder and CEO of Kaptivo. “Our expanded portfolio enables us to better serve organizations with strict security policies or those looking to integrate new technology with legacy video codecs or lecture capture systems,” continued Lawrence.

The on-premise Kaptivo Self-Hosted is ideal for organizations looking to improve collaboration through whiteboard archiving and sharing while accommodating strict security policies that restrict access to cloud services. No traffic leaves the corporate network, and no internet access is required. The whiteboard camera system sits securely within the network, keeping valuable company IP under the control of IT.

Kaptivo HDMI streams any whiteboard directly to any HDMI-capable display, video conference codec, or lecture capture system. It's designed for educational institutions and enterprises who wish to integrate whiteboard livestreaming into dedicated video systems.

IT and AV administrators can now select a Kaptivo solution that seamlessly fits within their technology environment. Expanded connectivity options enable organizations to deploy quickly and immediately realize the benefits of improved collaboration and streamlined communications.


Kaptivo Self-Hosted and Kaptivo HDMI will be available for purchase in Fall 2018, with the option to pre-order now.

Kaptivo Enterprise with Wi-Fi and Ethernet cloud connectivity is available to purchase now for $995.
