New in-ceiling document camera

AUTHOR: Inavate

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.
