What We Offer


Key Features of the Pointmaker CPN-EDU-XL

Adds More Video Inputs/Outputs for a total of 9, including 2 BNC composite or 1 Y/C, 2 VGA and 5 HDMI.

Superior scaling — The CPN-EDU-XL is a highly flexible scaler, capable of receiving video input in composite, Y/C, VGA and digital video formats up to 1920 x 1200, while scaling the output in high resolution formats up to 1920 x 1200.

Give wireless Presentations from Your iPad to a big screen or projector. The CPN-EDU-XL also works in conjunction with the Engage Teacher and Engage Student iPad apps 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 is 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-EDU-XL 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-EDU-XL 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-EDU-XL can be connected as an input to (and output from) a matrix switcher, allowing annotation over any video looped through the CPN-EDU-XL. You can also quickly connect the CPN-EDU-XL t0 in small installations that use only a laptop and document camera. HDCP compatible!

Our Smallest Footprint — The new CPN-EDU-XL 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-EDU-XL 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-EDU-XL 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.

“On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best, I would rate the Pointmaker Engage a 10. The student reaction is definitely different with the product.”
