One-Minute Product Profile




Vision took a close look at how visualisers are used in the modern presentation environment. The DC-1000 redefines document cameras by stripping out unused features, adding really useful new features, and leveraging new CMOS technology to deliver a simple high quality device.

Laser Pointers
Four laser pointers embedded in the camera head outline the capture area on the desk. Presenters can interact with the object or document they are showing without having to refer to the screen.

A4 Capture Area
Standing at 255mm (10.0″) tall, the native capture area is slightly larger than an A4 piece of paper.

Optimum Resolution
Video from a visualiser is viewed on a 1600 x 1200 projector at best. Vision opted for 1600 x 1200 pixels which decreases the burden on the PC and USB bus, provides faster video, and crisp uncompressed video on projectors.

Wide Focal-length
The DC-1000 features optics with a wide focal length so that as much as possible in the capture area is in focus at all times. A fine-tune focus ring can be adjusted for items which are especially close to the lens.

With the camera boom folded down the camera remains active, so the DC-1000 can be used as a normal webcam.

LED Lights
Eight LED lights built into the camera head light to capture area.

Software Included
The DC-1000 can be used with generic Microsoft Windows camera software and it comes with software which offers zoom, still and video capture, and image adjustment.
