Point-HD Telestrator with IPad

 

This guide is intended for users who wish to use the iPad as a touch screen interface with the Point-HD.

System Concept

The Point-HD user interface is replicated onto the iPad(s) via a high speed wireless datalink, this then allows the presenter to interact with the Point-HD via the Ipad's Touch Screen.

This has a number of advantages, the main one being that the presenter can be mobile around the floor rather than fixed at a particular position.

Please note, that since the only way to connect with the iPad is via a wireless link, HD video playback and frame rates are not as high as when the video is being displayed on the Point-HD computer. However, since most Telestration is performed with a still or video freeze / pause, this may not be such a problem for most applications.
