AVerVision CP300 camera
AVerMedia Technologies today began shipping its new AVerVision CP300 Interactive Portable Document Camera. The CP300 offers new network sharing capability, where users can access live images and control a document camera in any classroom or location on a school campus. "The ability to connect all document cameras in one campus together through the existing Local Area Network now provides the ability for multiple classrooms, or even the entire school to view and share live document camera lessons and demonstrations," the company said. Users can control annotation, image capture, video recording, zoom, and more by each classroom accessing the demonstration on the network. AVerMedia's CP300 is available for $800.
"Whether using the AVerVision CP300 on the network or individually, the new software is complete with new annotation, video recording with audio, document camera controls, and more. These enhanced features make the AVerVision CP300 truly interactive and intuitive, whether in a single classroom, or campus-wide."
A new 'FlexArm' design with a patented camera head locking mechanism increases portability while adding security to the camera head. An enhanced 3.2 megapixel camera sensor with AutoFocus produces higher quality images than previous 3.2 megapixel AVerVision Document Cameras, and the device features exclusive presentation options like 'AVerBox' and 'AVerVisor.'
The camera boasts 16X total zoom and pan, a 24 fps video frame rate, and compatibility with both Mac and PC systems.
