AVer Launches Digital Whiteboard with Live Interactive Video and more for the iPad in the Classroom with TabCam and TabSync
TabCam integrates a wireless camera and app that allows educators to record and share live video with audio, digital ink and photos via YouTube, Dropbox
FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — AVer Information Inc., a leading provider of Visual Collaboration solutions, today announced the launch of two products – TabCam and TabSync – that maximize the iPad’s potential in the classroom. AVer’s new TabCam allows educators to create and present lessons that are interactive, dynamic and engaging while turning the lessons into video resources that students can revisit anywhere, anytime. TabSync is one of the most cost-effective solutions to easily charge, store and move iPads.
TabCam is the first solution that combines a lightweight and portable wireless camera with an iPad app that not only receives live video from the TabCam, but also allows educators to fully customize and record the video with digital ink, narration and photos to share with students or even the world. TabSync is the only under $2,000 sync and charge cart for 32 iPads with LED status indicators and dividers that fit almost any iPad case.
“From eTextbooks, apps and more, there is a fundamental difference today in how curriculum is being presented and understood, with iPads leading the way,” says Kris Rangarajan, Marketing Director, AVer Information Inc. “The AVer TabCam solves a missing and critical element by allowing educators to transport their live classroom environment into their iPad lessons. From demonstrations, experiments, presentations and more, nothing is as simple as hitting record while performing, handwriting thoughts with digital ink and sharing instantly – perfect for the Flipped or Blended classroom.”
TabCam is a completely wireless solution that communicates to its App via a standard 802.11 b/g/n WiFi access point. As long as TabCam and the iPad App are on the same network, the camera will push live video to the App from anywhere within the network no matter the distance. The App, available in the Apple App store:
- Displays and records live broadcasts wirelessly
- Enables educators to write notes and highlight key elements on an iPad screen during live video
- Includes an editable digital whiteboard from which users can flip back-and-forth to live video while recording the entire screen
- Allows instant sharing of the video via YouTube, Dropbox, Facebook and more
TabSync is a portable, easy-to-use cart that can simultaneously sync, charge, transport and securely store up to 32 iPads in padded, numbered slots. The .96″ slot was designed specifically to fit almost any iPad case. Whenever an iPad is placed in a slot and connected to a dock connector cable, charging and synching begins. LED lights that correlate with the numbered slots indicate when an iPad is ready for use again. The cart has slot-in double doors with a 3 point latching mechanism along with a wall mount attachment for added security. It also features full 2.1 amp charging power from a single power cord as well as 3 outlets on top of the unit that’s perfect to power a Mac, document camera and more.

The AVer TabCam and TabSync are available in April and are priced at $599.99 and $1,999.99 MSRP, respectively.
