PVI Control App

iPad Control App for use with the Pointmaker CPN-5600 or CPN-6000

Annotating from both an iPad and a touch display using different colors.

Use the PVI Control app to control a Pointmaker CPN-5600 or CPN-6000 annotation system from your iPad via Wi-Fi. Display, share and annotate content from the iPad, as well as from multiple video and computer sources connected to the Pointmaker. You can also use the iPad as a remote control to change Pointmaker settings, switch video sources, and more – all while freely roaming the room.

“… I’m able to quickly switch between the document camera, the computer, or a video with a simple click … then I’m able to share the document with them and we are able to work on it as a whole class.” — Yvonne Madigan, 1st Grade Teacher.
