The Basics
Congratulations on your purchase of the IW2 Wireless Interactive
Whiteboard System. After a few simple steps, your system will be
calibrated and ready to use.
Your package should contain the following:
The IPEVO Wireless Interactive Whiteboard System, or IW2, turns your
large projection screen into an interactive touchscreen, giving you
the ability to easily draw and annotate for education and business.
Plus, because IW2 is compatible with many different kinds of soft-
ware, you’ll also be able to control your computer (and what’s on the
screen) at a distance. And this is all possible no matter what make and
model of projector you have.

Use the Interactive Pen as a Computer Cursor
The Interactive Pen can behave like a mouse, transforming any surface
into a touchscreen. Use the Pen to intuitively perform the actions you’d
normally use your mouse to perform.
Note: The Interactive Pen can perform normal mouse actions including click, double click,
and drag. However, some actions are not executable with the Pen, such as hovering.
Annotate Your Text and Images
Using the free screen annotation software IPEVO Annotator, you can
draw and write directly on your interactive whiteboard. You can even
draw on top of your document camera’s live video feed. Engage your
audience and clarify your material.
Two Ways to Use IW2
3
IW2 is made up of three devices: the Interactive Pen, the Sensor Cam,
and the Wireless Receiver (attached at the bottom of the Interactive
Pen). The Interactive Pen emits infrared signals on contact or by
pressing the IPEVO button on the Pen, the Sensor Cam, which acts as
the “eye” of IW2, then reads the infrared signals emitted and detects
the physical location of the Pen. As the Sensor Cam works in the same
way as how our eyes work, it is necessary to ensure any tappings
or movements made with the Interactive Pen could be “seen” and
detected by the Sensor Cam. Thus, please keep a clear path between
the Sensor Cam and the Pen, otherwise, these actions would not be
detected.
After detecting the physical location of the Pen, the Sensor Cam sends
this information wirelessly via the paired Wireless Receiver (which
must be plugged into the computer’s USB port) to your computer,
which then translates the Pen’s motion into cursor motion. Thus,
wherever you move the Pen, the computer will also move its cursor
in real time, just like a wireless mouse. You can also perform mouse
clicks and drags with the Interactive Pen.

Installing IW2
1. Driver & Software Installation
IW2 requires IPEVO IW Driver to function. IW2 also comes with a free
screen annotation software IPEVO Annotator. You can choose to install
and use the IPEVO Annotator with your IW2.
There is no included CD-ROM for IW Driver or IPEVO Annotator in this
package. Please visit the IPEVO website to download the latest version
of IW Driver and IPEVO Annotator at:
support.ipevo.com/IW2
Note: IW2 can be used with third-party mouse-based annotation software, but we highly
recommend using it with IPEVO Annotator to fully utilize the potential of your IW2.
After downloading,
For PC:
1. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the onscreen prompts
to complete the installation for IW Driver.
2. Follow the onscreen prompts to accept or decline installation of the
Annotator software.
3. An IW Driver icon will appear at the bottom right-hand side of the
task bar after the installation is completed.
For Mac:
1. Double-click the downloaded file. Two icons, “IW Driver” and
Annotator” will appear.
2. Drag the IW Driver icon and Annotator icon into the Application
folder to complete the installation for both, or only drag the IW
Driver icon into the Application folder to install the IW Driver.
3. Click on the IW Driver icon in the Application folder after the instal
lation is completed. An IW Driver icon will appear at the top right-
hand side of the status bar.
Note: After successful installation of IW Driver, a menu will automatically pop up. You can
close it by clicking once on the IW Driver icon. If the menu does not appear, you can start IW
Driver by navigating to:
Windows 7 and below: Start Menu -> Program files -> IPEVO -> IW Driver.
Windows 8: Start Menu -> Apps -> IPEVO -> IW Driver.
Mac: Applications-> IW Driver.

2. Positioning the Sensor Cam
Proper position of the Sensor Cam is important for optimum operation.
Follow these guidelines to place the Sensor Cam:
For most projectors, a good position for the Sensor Cam will be the
same location as the projector. One exception to this is if you are us-
ing a short-throw projector. In that case, you will need to place the
Sensor Cam further away from the screen than the projector.
Minimal distance from your screen depends on screen size. Place the
Sensor Cam according to the recommended distances in the chart
below:
Screen Size 60” 70” 80” 100”
Minimal
Distance
8 ft
(243 cm)
9 ft
(275 cm)
10 ft
(305 cm)
11 ft
(335 cm)
• The Sensor Cam should face directly at the projection screen. De-
pending on your screen’s height, you may have to adjust the Sensor
Cam’s lens to face upwards or downwards. Adjust the hinged metal
base to easily perform any such adjustments.
• The Sensor Cam is best placed opposite the center of the screen at a
straight-on angle. However, a straight-on angle is not required for
acceptable operation, and the Sensor Cam may be placed at another
angle if necessary. Please refer to the diagram on the
following page for placement zones according to accuracy quality:
8
As you can see:
• Accuracy is better when the Sensor Cam is closer to the center.
• Accuracy decreases as the angle increases.
• Larger screens require more distance between the screen and the
Sensor Cam.
Note: Please keep a clear path between the Sensor Cam and the projection screen to ensure
proper operation.
It’s important to make sure your Sensor Cam is steady and secure
before use. There are three ways to secure your Sensor Cam,
depending on your setup:
3. Securing the Sensor Cam
A. Place on a table or AV cart
Use a flat, smooth tabletop or an AV cart. Make sure nothing is
blocking the Sensor Cam’s path to the screen surface. Adjust the angle
of the Sensor Cam to face directly at the center of the screen surface.

B. Use an upside-down ceiling mount
The Sensor Cam can be mounted upside-down onto the ceiling or
ceiling-mounted projector. To do so:
1. Align the hole on the base of the Sensor Cam with the circular peg of
the ceiling mount and push the Sensor Cam in. You will hear a slight
click when the Sensor Cam has settled into position.
2. Before affixing the mount to the ceiling, hold the Sensor Cam in an
area just below (by a few inches) where you intend to mount the
projector. Run the Sensor Cam position Diagnosis (see Page 15) with
the Sensor Cam in this position to ensure maximum accuracy.
10
Note: The adhesive sticker of ceiling mount is extremely adhesive and should only be ap-
plied once. The Sensor Cam can be detached without removing the ceiling mount. Simply
remove the Sensor Cam from the ceiling mount.
C. Use a tripod
The Sensor Cam comes with a tripod mount. Consider mounting the
Sensor Cam onto any standard tripod.

3. Ensure the mounting surface is clean and free of grit. Remove the
adhesive sticker from the bottom of the ceiling mount, and affix the
ceiling mount firmly onto the mounting surface.

5. Connecting to the Computer
The Sensor Cam can be connected to your computer wirelessly via the
included Wireless Receiver. To do so:
1. Connect the Sensor Cam to a power outlet by plugging the Micro-
USB cable into the Micro-USB port on the Sensor Cam, then plugging
the other end of the cable into the included power adapter. Lastly,
plug the power adapter into an outlet.

2. Detach the Wireless Receiver from the bottom of the Pen and plug it
into the USB port of your computer.
Note: If the LED indicator shows a blinking Orange in step 4, the Wireless Receiver
might not be properly plugged into the computer’s USB port. Please check the
Wireless Receiver. If the LED indicator shows a solid Red, the Sensor Cam is in Sleep
Mode. Please press the Sensor Power Button again to turn the Sensor Cam on.
