VZ-1 HD captures a variety of subjects—including standard
letter-sized documents, devices like smartphones and Apple's
iPad, 3D objects, and even A3-sized documents and
larger—and presents a live video image in one of several
possible resolutions.
Your VZ-1 HD document camera has two modes and can be
connected directly to a projector or monitor via VGA, or to a
computer (PC or Mac) via USB.
Connect the USB cable to the USB power adapter and plug the
VGA cable from your projector or monitor to VZ-1 HD’s VGA
port for straight live image projection on your big screen, or
unplug the USB cable from the USB power adapter and
connect to a computer to turn the VZ-1 HD into a USB
document camera.
The multi-jointed, weighted stand allows you to quickly and
easily change the height and position of the camera to suit
your subject.
Additionally, the camera head can swivel with 270° of
freedom to customize your orientation.

Installation: PC or Mac
Your VZ-1 HD document camera has two modes and can be connected to a computer (PC or Mac) via USB or directly to a projector or
monitor via VGA.
Note: Connecting the USB cable to a computer will disable the VGA output. VZ-1 HD transmits live images to your computer when you plug the USB cable
into a computer port. To project VZ-1 HD’s live feed straight to a projector or monitor, please remove the USB cable from your computer and plug the USB
cable into the power adapter before connecting the VGA Cable.
You may wish to use VZ-1 HD with IPEVO Presenter software. You may download it at: http://support.ipevo.com/presenter
