Give wireless Presentations from Your iPad to a big screen or projector. The CPN-5800 also works in conjunction with the PVI Control app that allows presenters to execute commands, select video sources and annotate from an iPad.

Live video streaming — stream video of any non-HDCP source, with a minimal delay to our Windows 7 Stream Viewer app. Now streaming to the iPad with the latest version of our PVI Control app (streams to iPad 3 and 4, plus iPad mini. An update in the works that will include  iPad Air).

Streaming Audio: With the addition of streaming audio, users now have three ways to output audio: by passing it over digital video, using the analog audio out, or by streaming audio over a network.

Digital Audio Extractor — This model features a digital audio de-embedder/embedder with analog stereo output, eliminating the need to buy an audio breakout or extractor box. Also offers the ability to switch audio with the digital video signal. 

Volume Control — The volume menu in the CPN-5800 allows independent fine-tuning of analog and digital outputs, and features a master control to adjust overall volume. As with other commonly used Pointmaker features, volume can also be controlled from most third-party control systems.

EDID Control — The recent upgrade also includes the ability to change the reported native resolution of the Pointmaker via a new EDID (Extended Display Identification Device) menu. By default, the CPN-5800 reports a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz, but users can now change this reported resolution. This feature is particularly useful to force a resolution change in a connected video source, such as a computer.

Focus Audience Attention by drawing, writing or highlighting over documents, photos, slides, live web pages or AV images — even HDCP.

Simple to Configure in Large or Small Installations — In large installations, the CPN-5800 can be connected as an input to (and output from) a matrix switcher, allowing annotation over any video looped through the CPN-5800. You can also quickly connect the CPN-5800 in small installations that use only a laptop and document camera. HDCP compatible!

Our Smallest Footprint — The new CPN-5800 is our most compact model yet. At just over 6” wide and 1 RU high, it fits with room to spare into any AV system including courtrooms, lecterns, training facilities and boardrooms.

HID Compliant — The CPN-5800 not only works with hundreds of non-HID (Human Interface Device) devices, it also recognizes HID-compliant touch screens, allowing for a greatly expanded list of compatible models.

Color Printing — The CPN-5800 supports UNIX LP printing directly from the unit to a color Postscript printer.

Save Annotated Images to your iPad photo album, USB stick or by TFTP.
