Vaddio, which makes robotic PTZ cameras and camera control systems launched the Squiggle Video Whiteboard Kit designed for videoconferencing, educational, and corporate training facilities, company officials said.

Capable of being installed alongside almost any existing whiteboard, the Squiggle converts whiteboard notes into an HD or SD video signal, according to the company. Because no dedicated PC is required, the video signal can then be connected to any videoconferencing, telepresence, distance education, or video media distribution system. In addition to HD/SD outputs, data can be captured and stored as a JPEG image onto any USB flash drive.

"There are so many educational institutions who want video output capabilities on their existing whiteboards," said Rob Sheeley, president of Vaddio, in a statement. "The Squiggle is a simple way to convert all of those whiteboards into a video output source."

As part of the solution, a portable device called the EZTub, which has a digital control panel, attaches to the wall on the left side of the whiteboard. Based on the same concept as the Vaddio Video Whiteboard system, the Squiggle uses the same technology to run power and USB data over a single Cat.-5 cable up to 100 feet from the whiteboard to Vaddio's Video Whiteboard Quick-Connect Interface. The Quick-Connect is located at the head-end for plugging into the user's video system.

Outputs include high definition DVI-D or HDMI (HDMI requires a cable adapter) digital video and high definition YPbPr analog component video at resolutions of 720p/59.94Hz and 720p/50Hz, or standard definition video at 480i/NTSC and 576i/PAL.

The Squiggle Video Whiteboard Kit includes the EZTub with the digital control panel, Video Whiteboard Quick-Connect Interface, one black marker, one marker sleeve, and one electronic eraser.
