Some of IPEVO VZ-R document camera’s most-liked features include portability, lightweight, and small footprint. Yet, they may also become double-edged swords that make VZ-R an easy target for theft. Leaving it unattended overnight in a classroom may not be the safest thing to do, and this is why one of our customers, Mark from the University of Birmingham, approached a security company — Core-Security — to tailor-make a security device for VZ-R. As Mark shares with us, this unique device comes with a security cable and lock that enables the user to safely secure his/her VZ-R, therefore deterring any possible theft. So, if you are looking for a security device for your VZ-R, you may want to give it a try. And who knows, you may be saving yourself from some unpleasant surprises!

Lock your VZ-R document camera and keep it safe!

No worries, there’s no need to reprint the worksheet as you can just erase the mistake using the dry erase cleaner.

Using IPEVO document cameras as art buddies!

Besides being used by educators as teaching buddies, recently we have seen an increasing trend where IPEVO doc cams are being used by artists as their art buddies, primarily for live streaming or documenting their creation process. And we’ve received numerous positive reviews from them so far. So let’s take a look at how well IPEVO doc cams perform as art buddies.

...

We know that art is a visual medium, hence, the ability to clearly capture fine details is what artists look for when they are doing live workshops/demonstrations that require them to show and project the creation process onto a large screen. Or simply, to share their art pieces on social media. This is where IPEVO’s family of 8 megapixel doc cams shines. Just as Bajo, a doll-making artist from Barcelona who uses our V4K Ultra High Definition USB Document Camera to document her creation process points out, she is getting excellent image quality:

“I was very surprised by the quality of the image and the lens (many times this type of device weakens on the lens, but this is not the case) and has very good ‘macro’ image quality. This last point for me is very important because when making dolls so small sometimes I have not been able to photograph them closely.”

Bajo’s *full review is available at: http://www.missbajocollection.com/2018/07/v4k-ultra-high-definition-usb-document.html

Or you can check out her Instagram post:

Hace algún tiempo recibí en mi casa esta cámara #V4K (V4K Ultra High Definition USB Document Camera) de #ipevo . . Como podéis ver no es una simple cámara ya que viene con su propio “trípode” ideal para ir documentando el trabajo que estes realizando. . . Muchas veces he dejado de hacer fotos con el teléfono por qué no sabía como hacerlas pero con esta herramienta me será mucho más fácil y no tendré que liar todo el “armatoste” con el trípode etc. Como podéis ver va conectada al ordenador a través de un cable USB lo que permite ir viendo los ángulos a través de tu pc/mac. Con su software podrás graduarla a tu gusto y aplicarle distintos efectos. Creo que le voy a sacar mucho partido para hacer fotos del proceso de creación. Y lo veo muy útil también para hacer hauls ya que así puedes ir abriendo las cosas sin tener que estar aguantando el teléfono 😊 . . Me ha sorprendido mucho la calidad de imagen y la lente (muchas veces este tipo de aparatos flojea en la lente, pero no es el caso) y tiene muy buena calidad de imagen “macro”. . . Este último punto para mí es muy importante ya que al hacer muñecos tan pequeños algunas veces no me ha sido posible fotografiarlos de cerca. 🐝 . . Me parece súper útil tanto para profesores como para crafters ya que es ideal para ir grabando/haciendo fotos desde arriba y va a ser una muy buena herramienta dentro de mi equipo fotográfico. ❤️ . . Encontraras más modelos en #ipevo.com 👌🏻 . . #photography #handmade #crochetersofinstagram #knit #camera #teaching #documentation

In addition, when you’re giving a large screen demonstration to a group of audience, you won’t want to waste time on fiddling with your doc cam and figuring out how to use it while onstage. This is where IPEVO doc cams’ plug and play, simple to use design come in really helpful. As Sanjana, an artist from New Zealand who uses our VZ-R HDMI/USB Dual Mode Document Camera to live stream her demonstrations shares:

“I was skeptical at first when @ipevo_taiwan got in touch with me and sent me this webcam, but this document web camera has proven to be a great asset to my streaming setup — easy to use and the picture quality is great!”

More importantly, you would want a doc cam that is small in size (so it won’t get in your way when you’re demonstrating) yet flexible enough for you to capture and display your art pieces from different heights, angles and orientations. IPEVO doc cams triumph in these areas with their small footprint, multi-jointed stand and swiveling camera head. Use them with the free IPEVO Visualizer software and you can access additional features such as snapshot, video/time-lapse/slow motion/stop motion recording or resolution/color/exposure adjustments. And if you’re using VZ-R, you can even adjust image settings on the fly via the control buttons placed on it. These are exactly the reasons why Cindy, an artist and illustrator from Australia finds VZ-R versatile and handy:

“A lot of my illustration colleagues use this camera for live workshops and demonstrations where they need to project what they’re drawing onto a large screen, wall etc. However it can also be used to record video and still photographs directly to your computer using USB & HDMI cables. I’ve used both Mac & Windows in this demo video, and have shown some of its features, changing resolution, zoom, WB etc. There are so many features, I haven’t had a chance to try them all yet, but the ratios, filters, refresh rates etc can all be altered. Such a versatile, adaptable camera, with so much more to explore!”

By combining a microscope with IPEVO’s VZ-R or VZ-X doc cam, you can not only get a closer look of the microscopic world but also take snapshots, record videos or perform other tasks when used in conjunction with IPEVO Visualizer software. Using VZ-R as an example, check out the following video and see how you can do so:
