New in-ceiling document camera

Vaddio has announced the release of the CeilingVIEW HD Integrated Ceiling Document Camera, which brings true high definition video quality to installation projects.

The HD camera is based on a Sony 2.1 Megapixel native HD imaging sensor capable of 1920 x 1080 at 1080i or 1280 x 720 at 720p. The HD image sensor provides precise colour reproduction and edge focus, which is essential for displaying images on a large format HD monitor or for transmitting images through an HD videoconferencing system. The option of switching to Standard Definition is also available in either 16:9 (squeezed) or 4:3 (cropped) aspect ratios. The camera comes equipped with a 10X optical motorised zoom lens and 12X digital zoom range, for a total of 120X zoom.

Vaddio’s active HSDS™ cabling system uses a High Speed Differential Signalling technology that allows the integrator the ability to install the document camera up to 400 feet away from the main system on two standard Cat. 5 cables. HSDS incorporates a high bandwidth, low loss approach to distances. The HSDS cable system also provides power to the camera and control commands over the same Cat. 5 cables.
