IOGEAR’s Mobile Digital Scribe Unshackles Note Takers from Their Computers [03-05-2008]

Stores and converts handwritten memos and sketches to a PC for easy editing

Irvine, CA – March 3, 2008 – Avid note takers can now leave their laptops at home and store handwritten notes and drawings to later upload onto a PC in digital text with IOGEAR’s Mobile Digital Scribe. Ideal for students and medical or legal professionals who need to take down information when on-the-go, the product’s pen works on any paper and uses standard ink refills. An ultrasonic transmitter and infrared sensor capture hand movements while a receiver attached to a notepad stores up to 50 pages of memos and images. The regular pen size and weight give users a comfortable writing experience. Whether in class or a meeting, the Mobile Digital Scribe helps individuals retain all longhand and eases the fear of losing important details scribbled on scraps of paper by safely transferring information to a computer. By connecting the receiver to a PC with the included USB cable, the handwriting recognition software translates notes into text and saves sketches as JPEGs for consumers to conveniently save, edit and organize documents. “IOGEAR recognizes the need for a cost-effective solution that enables students and professionals to digitally manage information they often hand-write on notepads,” said Miranda Su, executive vice president of IOGEAR. “Our Mobile Digital Scribe gives users the ability to store and organize important notes without the hassle of toting a laptop wherever they go.” To keep important names, phone numbers and memos handy, users can utilize the product to tag information in sticky notes on their desktops or set pop-up reminders for certain dates or times. The Mobile Digital Scribe has additional functionality when connected to the computer and can serve as a mouse or writing device and select and click on items on the screen. The Mobile Digital Scribe is compatible with 12 languages and Microsoft Windows operating systems Microsoft Vista™ and Microsoft Office™ programs 2000 and above. It is priced at $129.95 (MSRP) and available immediately from all major catalog and online resellers, as well as select retail outlets, and comes with IOGEAR’s limited one-year warranty.
