AVerMedia visual presenter
AVerMedia on Wednesday introduced the AVerVision VP-1 Portable Visual Presenter that allows users on a budget to put up larger images of documents or 3D objects on a connected TV or PC screen or a blackboard using a connected projector during presentations. The document camera has a 2-megapixel camera with an 8x digital zoom and auto focus. Weighing in at just 2.7lbs, the VP-1 folds up for travel but can still project A4-sized sheets or images.
The AVerVision VP-1 can show what a microscope sees via an available 28mm adapter. It connects to other video devices or computers via a choice of RCA video or VGA output. A VGA input is also present. The RGB output resolution is selectable between 800x600, 1024x768 or 1280x960 resolutions via a switch. The AVerVision VP-1 can be purchased now for $450.
