Kaptivo releases self-hosted and HDMI whiteboard cameras

Kaptivo has expanded its portfolio of whiteboard cameras, with the release of Kaptivo Self-Hosted and Kaptivo HDMI at InfoComm 2018. Kaptivo cameras attach to the top of any whiteboard, automatically saving images

and securely sharing content in realtime via livestream to any web browser on any device or via video conference integration.

“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, cofounder and CEO of Kaptivo. “Our expanded portfolio enables us to better serve organisations with strict security policies or those looking to integrate new technology with legacy video codecs or lecture capture systems.”

The on-premise Kaptivo Self-Hosted is ideal for organisations 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 that wish to integrate whiteboard livestreaming into dedicated video systems.

The need for comprehensive collaboration tools coincides with 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 every organisation, 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 realise the full potential of digital collaboration using their existing whiteboard while integrating seamlessly into approved corporate technology and security policies.
