AVerMedia Technologies, the folks who make PC/Mac-to-TV scan conversion products, have a new Mac compatible document camera, the AVerVision100, which can be used to project any 3D objects onto a TV, VGA screen or LCD/DLP projector.
It can be used to view items such as a document, an apple or other physical objects. And you can also connect it to a microscope and project microscopic images in full color. The AVerVision 100 comes with a 1/4-inch (397K Pixel) Color CCD Image Sensor and a remote control that lets you access AVerMedia’s zoom and presentation features from a distance.
The document camera supports composite, S and SCART RGB video output and VGA output resolution up to 1600 x 1200. What’s more, all its features include image mirroring and rotation, as well as overlay capabilities and digital zooming. Optional accessories include a headlamp and light box. The former is designed to provide greater image clarity in darker environments and improve color image projection. The latter lets you use the AVerVision100 to convert negative film to positive images and display transparencies and 35mm slides.
Other features to AVerVision100 are its “sleek, modern case design, a durable 19-inch gooseneck, an onscreen display menu and an onscreen presentation timer to help keep track of those long-winded speakers,” according to Kathy Shih, marketing manager for AVerMedia Technologies. The document camera is compatible with any VGA monitor, TV or LCD/DLP projector. The device is sold as a complete package that includes an S-video cable, an AV cable, a VGA cable, a power adapter, a remote control with battery and an owner’s guide.
