IPEVO Point 2 View USB Document Camera
The Point 2 View USB Document Camera provides live image capture for documents, pictures, textbooks, and three-dimensional objects—all at hundreds or even thousands less than conventional document cameras and overhead projectors. And with its ultra-portable size and featherlight weight—less than a single pound—the Point 2 View is a perfect mobile solution for teaching, presentations, distance learning, and video communication of all types.
The Point 2 View's versatility starts with its multi-jointed stand and weighted base. Three points of articulation mean that you can position the camera at most any height and angle. And the camera's ergonomic grip, as well as a universal monitor clip, give you even more view options.
The camera itself is 2 Megapixels, and features an excellent macro mode to capture tiny details and the smallest text from as close as 2 inches (5 cm) away. The camera can be toggled between single-click autofocus—ideal for a subject that stays at one distance, like a stationary sheet of paper—or continuous autofocus, which is best for hands-on demonstrations when the subject is moving.
Snapshots can be taken with a single click, and included custom software makes it easy to refine and organize your images. Additionally, the Point 2 View is ready for your video conferencing and remote learning needs, and is compatible with a wide variety of Instant Messaging applications, including Skype, Google Talk, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, and AOL.
And not only that, you can use the Point 2 View to capture video onto your computer, using one of several available third-party capture programs. These programs include Google's Picasa and Apple's Quicktime, to name two.* Usually it's simply a matter of recording inside the application, and then saving/exporting the video from your camera as an appropriate file, such as .wmv or .mov.
The Point 2 View is plug-and-play compatible for either PC or Mac via any standard USB port. Along with your computer and a digital projector, the Point 2 View can be used to project sharp, clear video. Resolution is adjustable to up to 1600 x 1200, for the type of high-quality images necessary for large-screen presentation

Height Extension Stand
The Height Extension Stand is expressly designed for our popular Point 2 View USB Document Camera. This handy stand is a simple way to give your camera a height boost for those times you need to capture full images of larger documents, textbooks, objects, handwritten papers, and more. This stand features the best of both worlds, and is both durable and lightweight. Both panels of the stand are wide and constructed with heavy-duty steel to ensure your Point 2 View is securely supported. After use, the hinged panels are thin and can be folded together, making the Height Extension Stand just as portable as your Point 2 View.
Thanks to a bit of magnetic magic, mounting the Point 2 View takes no effort at all. The metal base of Point 2 View attaches to a magnet in the Height Extension Stand to provide a strong seal — no straps, bolts, velcro, or anything else is needed. And as you can imagine, unmounting is just as easy. The Height Extension Stand is your portable solution for e-learning in the classroom or presentations at the office, and is a valuable but inexpensive addition to your Point 2 View accessory kit.
