Turn physical into digital

Sharing real-time image capture or storing image & video content for later could not be easier. Optoma’s range of Visualisers seamlessly transport the physical into a digital environment whether it is a textbook or a 3D object. See detail not visible to the human eye & display to whole rooms or virtual audiences.

Capture it, save it

Textbooks, maps, detailed diagrams and 3D objects can be displayed to the whole room, picking up incredibly small details often not visible to the human eye. Optoma’s document cameras also allow presenters to annotate images captured by the visualiser and transform them into video clips through the recording feature.

Easy to use

Simply connect via one of the available connection ports to any PC, projector or interactive flat panel and you are good to go. Simple controls are available on the base of the camera so that any function is just a button click away.

Folding arm design

The folding arm design makes precise positioning incredibly straightforward with its ability to fold to compact size. It makes the visualiser far easier for teachers and lecturers to transport from room to room.

Amazing image quality

Display the smallest objects with more detail due to the latest lens and sensor technology. Powerful zoom capabilities further enhance this for incredible detail often not visible to the human eye.

Social distance friendly

During these challenging times with Covid 19, Optoma’s visualiser range emulates the intimacy of a hands on presentation, whilst maintaining social distancing. Combine with larger screens to share with audiences bigger than you would normally be able to demo to.

Onboard annotation tools

The supplied smart software allows the presenter to capture an image and annotate over it. In addition, combine with an interactive flat panel to enable live annotation for a really dynamic & engaging presentation.

Built-In microphone and speaker

The built-in microphone and speaker means Optoma’s visualiser range also double up as a premium webcam. Great for when audiences are a combination of local and remote.

Picture-in-Picture, capture & freeze
