Vividly smooth motion in HD, all the essentials - and a great price? The USB powered U15 is the perfect first document camera to replace your overhead projector, scanner - and even your web camera.
To us, high resolution means HD (1080p) and the U15 displays it best with the smoothest 30fps video. That means whether modeling instructions, performing dissections or plotting graphs, you have captured every student's attention. With the U15, there is only clear movement and images without any bumps, lags or freezes. Go ahead you smooth criminal.
Built-in Auto focus
Beware of rings, wheels and other controls, because no matter how they phrase it, it is still manual focus. With one quick tap, the U15 auto focuses. So when moving from page to page or project to project, the U15 does all the work. Imagine if you had to manual focus all of that...
Read the fine print.
Not only does the U15 offer 8X digital zoom but, you can actually move around an image when you are zoomed in – perfect for exploring various parts of a map.
Shed some light.
Usually when the projector is on, the lights are off. That's why the U15 has built-in LED lights in the camera head so that whether the room lights are on or off, your objects can still be seen clearly.
Webcam friendly design
If you are a Skype power-user, the U15 as a webcam not only shows your face but, your student's faces, a project, classroom wall... (you get the point).
Do the twist.
Go ahead – lean, bend and flex the U15's gooseneck in any and every direction to get up close and personal from an iPad, Petri dish, your students, your class and more. It won't break.
Sharing a doc cam with a few teachers? Then the U15 is perfect. It's light, portable (has a handle) and folds down into the size of a paper-back novel. It also has only one cable to connect for the quickest setup. The U15 just might be the easiest doc cam to use.
Power. Display. Record. Upload.
Only one cable needed.
All the U15 needs is one USB cable to power-on and connect-up. Simply insert the bundled cable into a computer and now you have access to AVer's exclusive AVer A+ Software Suite software while you are charging the U15. No fuss. No mess.
With the plug-in, AVer's U15 directly integrates into any IWB software to easily add pictures and live video. You can even use the IWB or tablet software to control the U15. That's the power of AVer integration.
Place an AVer doc cam live image directly onto PowerPoint slides. You can even annotate over the entire slide (including the live doc cam image) as well as record the entire presentation.
With Sphere 2 it's all about the split screen- and share-ability. Feel free to split…the screen that is. Project a live U15 image, a live web cam image, and saved images /videos side by side. Why? Show exam questions next to sample answers. How to videos next to end results. The difference between an iceberg and a glacier is simple when seen. All the while, annotate, highlight and record the presentation and when finished, Sphere 2 will upload to many social media sites – YouTube, Dropbox – to share with colleagues, students and more.
