Alliance International Introduces Portable AVIO Projector With Built-In Camera

Press Release  |  Nov 14, 2007
November 14, 2007 (San Diego, CA) - Alliance International, distributor and authorized service center for Nippon Avionics in the U.S., has introduced a new AVIO projector with built-in camera that is portable. The iP-30SE is half the height of previous AVIO models, allowing it to be easily carried to remote locations to project live images of documents, 3-D solid objects, computer presentations and video from one projection device.

The main benefits of the iP-30SE are:

*Increased portability, because of the size reduction, less weight (weighs only 11 lbs.) and all-in-one design.
*Quicker set up time and less clutter, because the camera is built-in; there is no need to set up a separate document camera and connect it to the projector.
*Ease of showing documents and 3-D solid objects; just lay them on the flat plate, as you would a photocopy machine or scanner.
*Clear image - even when showing full page documents - because of the high-resolution CCD camera built-in with over 4-million pixels.
*Improved viewing in brighter rooms, because brightness has been increased from 2,000 to 2,500 lumens.
*Improved video image, by utilizing DLP technology. Easy to save images and annotate over images, using the built in image capture and "electronic whiteboard" annotation features.

Unlike other projectors with an optional camera arm or using a traditional document camera or flex camera which is a separate device, the AVIO projector has a camera built-inside, allowing users to easily place documents and 3-D objects on a glass platen incorporated into the images tops.

The AVIO iP-30SE projector offers users convenience, because they can project clear images of full-size documents and 3-D objects without having to set up and use a separate document camera. Showing documents and 3-D objects is as easy as using a traditional overhead projector (OHP) or a photo-copy machine - just place the document on the glass platen and the image appears.

Nippon Avionics, based in Japan, has been producing LCD projectors with cameras built in for over 10 years. In the past, the projectors have been bulky, with a depth of 12 inches, or more.

The AVIO iP-30SE is shipping, and available to government customers on the GSA contract through Tierney Brothers, to education customers through CamCor or available on-line at The price is $4,995.

Early adopters of the AVIO iP-30SE have been attorneys, who may use the projector in the office for client presentations and internal meetings, and easily bring it to a courtroom for presenting evidence. Other early adopters have included schools and colleges.
