    I have video camera (otoscope) that communicates wirelessly to a usb receiver on my Windows netbook in real time. Made and marketed by firefly (http://www.fireflyglobal.com/video-otoscope-de550/). It works nicely.

    Does anyone have an idea of how to make this work, easily of course, with my iPad 2 for a bigger and better picture. The salesperson said it would be about a year before the company has an ipad app. I haven't tried the usb reciever directly in to the ipad via an adaptor. I would suspect that wouldn't work.

    Thanks in advance.

    You are correct. Without an app by the company the iPad will not stream video directly from the camera, USB, wi-fi, or otherwise. Sorry.

    The best you can do is copy any video files to the iPad afterwards; assuming they are compatible. Not all video camera's are, in which case the video would have to be reformatted first.

    The camera image is only 720x480 pixels, so your iPad would not display it in more detail. If you just want it larger, why not simply plug a large monitor into your netbook?

    I have found that I can get a receiver for a television. I think I'll do that. Then I can plug the supplied usb receiver in the office computer to save the pictures. Thanks for the thoughts.

    This company has an adapter for a television. I'll try that.

    I'm glad you found a solution for your problem, even if not one for the iPad. Thanks for letting us know.
