Make Any Whiteboard Smart
A unique cloud-connected camera that transforms any standard dry-erase whiteboard into an online collaboration tool for sharing and video conferencing.
Simply share with everyone.
With over 50 million installed worldwide, we’re using dry-erase whiteboards more than ever for their immediacy, convenience and productivity benefits. Dry-erase whiteboards allow us to work fast and collaboratively, but there is no way to easily save or share the board content outside the conference room.
Kaptivo lets dry-erase whiteboards be seen beyond the meeting, easily integrating with any whiteboard already on the wall and any screenshare-enabled video conference system. Interactive whiteboard technology is clumsy and expensive, but Kaptivo is quick to install and effortless to use, making sharing and saving the whiteboard content simpler, easier and better.
High Quality Images
The Kaptivo camera is easily installed and creates crisp, clean images for whiteboards up to 6ft (1.8m) by 4ft (1.2m).
The control pad directs new users to the online session portal with simple lighted calls to action.

Frequently Asked Questions
Kaptivo is designed to work with whiteboards up to 6’ horizontal x 4’ vertical (1.8 m horizontal x 1.2 m vertical).
Kaptivo captures a slide deck of your Kaptivo Session automatically as a PDF. Individual board image “snapshots” can also be saved as PNGs. We may support additional formats in the future.
Kaptivo works best with glass-surface boards that have coatings on the back of the glass. If there is some distance to the wall and no coating you may see some ‘echoes’ in the Kaptivo images, particularly in the bottom corners. As we continue to improve Kaptivo new capabilities will be rolled out to all customers.
Kaptivo will capture content from any color of board, and works best with white or grey boards, as long as the ink is darker than the board color. Kaptivo will not work with blackboards.
Kaptivo itself does not include audio recording hardware. However, Kaptivo is designed to work in conjunction with conference tools that do capture audio, like Skype for Business and BlueJeans.
Kaptivo ships ready to be mounted on the wall. We are considering alternative mounts including clips and suction mounts. Please contact us if you have any particular requirements.
We are considering development of a mounting system for mobile whiteboards. Please contact us if you have any particular requirements.
Anywhere. Kaptivo ships with power plug adapters for US, UK, Australia & Europe and supports 100-240V AC.
Right now, all Kaptivo connections are routed via our cloud service. However, we have had a lot of requests for a “local network” only mode where direct connections are made between clients and Kaptivo, without any external data transmission. We are looking at implementing this functionality in the future.
Yes. All the functions in Kaptivo that are free will remain free. As well as ongoing (free) improvements to the current product, we also plan to offer some additional, cloud-based ‘premium features’ as part of a paid subscription offering later in 2017.
Kaptivo connects to the network via Wi-Fi. If you wish to use a wired Ethernet connection, a standard wired-to-wireless bridge can be used.
Kaptivo works well in conjunction with video conference tools. Simply share your board using the Kaptivo web app in your browser as usual, and then use your conference tool’s screen share function.
