1 Getting Started
Welcome to Point 2 View, a next-generation webcam that provides advanced features and flexibility to
make your web video experience rich and creative.
Key benefits of your Point 2 View:
Flexible positioning
Traditionally, webcams are mounted on your desk or monitor. Point 2
View gives you a wider range of options.
Point 2 View comes with a unique jointed stand which allows you
to position the webcam as you choose. You can flex the stand to
different configurations; you can tilt and rotate the webcam on
top of the stand, or attach it to either side of the stand. The stand
provides broad flexibility while remaining stable and secure.
Your Point 2 View is shaped like a pen and has a natural feel in
your hand. Hold the Point 2 View and move it anywhere you like,
letting the camera capture your personal Point of View - you’re the
director.
Easy autofocus
You don’t have to worry about being out of focus with the Point 2
View. It has two autofocus modes:
Continuous Autofocus automatically brings itself into focus when
its position or objects in the image change, giving you hands-free
operation.
Single Autofocus delivers a video or snapshot with a fixed focus
point. Press the Focus key or Focus Button (in the Software) to
adjust the focus to your liking.
And, your Point 2 View delivers first-rate macro performance, which
allows you to get within inches of an object - and still get a crisp
picture.
Smart P2V Software
P2V (Point 2 View) Software is dedicated software developed to
expand Point 2 View’s capabilities and give you more choices. P2V
Software lets you view the video image and make adjustments,
and with one click you’re in Full Screen mode - excellent for
presentations. The software allows you to focus and take snapshots,
and then helps you store and manage those photos. P2V Software
makes it easier than ever to capture your Point of View.
