Vaddio releases high definition document cameras14 December 2011
Add high-definition magnification and dimension to original objects, documents or drawings with Vaddio’s new CeilingView HD-18 DocCam document camera system. Replacing the CeilingView HD document camera, the CeilingView HD-18 DocCam features an 18x optical zoom lens for enhanced detail and greater zoom capabilities, and a 1.3 megapixel CCD image sensor with a 1.8-LUX for better-quality low-light performance. Users can select from either HD resolutions through Vaddio’s Quick-Connect system or the analog RGBHV output on the camera backbox.
“Using our own ClearView HD-18 technology for the new high definition document camera allows us not only greater zoom capability,” explains Rob Sheeley, president of Vaddio, “but also a higher-quality CCD sensor for exceptional colour and detail reproduction at very high resolutions.”
Both Quick-Connect Short Range (SR) and Quick-Connect DVI/HDMI SR options are available. The CeilingView HD-18 with Quick-Connect SR outputs component HD (YPbPr) at 720p, 1080i or 1080p. The CeilingVIEW HD-18 with DVI/HDMI Quick-Connect SR outputs simultaneous component HD and DVI/HDMI at 720p, 1080i or 1080p. Both cameras also provide the option for RGBHV resolutions at 1024 x 768, 1280 x 720 or 1680 x 1050 at 60 Hz.
Add the CCU Image Controller to either system and now you have the ability to adjust red and blue gain, gamma, chroma, knee, pedestal, iris and gain. User-defined adjustments may be stored using two Scene buttons.
