AVIO Introduces the iP-40SE Projector With Document Camera

Press Release  |  Aug 27, 2008
August 25, 2008) San Diego -- Alliance International, distributor and authorized service center for Nippon Avionics AVIO projectors in North America, has introduced a new AVIO projector with built-in camera, Carl Zeiss optics and a built-in SD card slot that is portable. (See the video of the projector at ). The iP-40SE at 11 lbs. 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. It incorporates Texas Instruments' latest 6-color wheel DLP processing, and high quality optics manufactured by Carl Zeiss.

The main benefits of the iP-40SE are: ** Improved optics, with the Carl Zeiss fish eye lens, so that images appear more clear. ** SD card slot, so that PowerPoint presentations and other images can be shown without a computer. **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 platen, 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's latest 6-color wheel processing 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 iP-40 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-40SE 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. And, the camera lighting is built inside, so you don't need to depend on their being light in the room to show objects.

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 since 1995. In the past, the projectors have been bulky, with a depth of 12 inches, or more. The AVIO iP-40SE is shipping, and available to government customers on the GSA contract through Tierney Brothers, to education customers through CamCor. The list price is $5,495.

Adopters of the AVIO's technology have been attorneys, who use the projector in the office for client presentations and internal meetings, and easily bring it to a courtroom for presenting evidence. Other AVIO projector adopters have included schools, colleges and large manufacturing companies who use the projectors for training.
