PRLog - May 27, 2014 - Education technology company IPEVO has just released its newest product: the Magnifying Lens for Ziggi-HD and iZiggi-HD Document Cameras. This lens accessory slides onto the camera of either of IPEVO's popular Ziggi document cameras: the original Ziggi-HD USB Document Camera and the wireless iZiggi-HD. In either case, the subject directly under the camera is magnified two times in order to better show small details. The Magnifying Lens is now available through the IPEVO Online Store at www.ipevo.com at a price of $19.
Magnifying Lens for iZIggi and Ziggi HD Doc Cams
The small and lightweight Magnifying Lens attaches to the camera head of either Ziggi-HD or iZiggi-HD through use of an adapter panel. The lens slides into place and can be removed just as easily. Once equipped, the lens is positioned directly on top of the subject and may be freely repositioned during a demonstration or lecture. 2X magnification of the camera image is possible, providing a larger and better view for intricate details and small parts. This magnification is instantly reflected in the real-time video image.
For added illumination during a demonstration, an LED light has been built into the Magnifying Lens housing. This built-in LED, which casts white and even light onto the subject, may be switched on or off as needed. Three batteries to power the LED are installed, and three additional batteries (along with extra screws and a mini-screwdriver)
The Magnifying Lens and document camera (which is sold separately) are particularly useful for presenting 3D objects in science class, such as rocks, wood grain, insects, electronic parts, fabric, paper and coin currency, metals and much more. The lens is also useful for offering high-resolution details of artwork in art class (either a reproduction from a textbook or a student's art project), tools and measurements in math class, and maps and charts in social studies, to name a few examples. As such, the Magnifying Lens represents a low-cost presentation enhancement for educators in possession of a Ziggi document camera.
"IPEVO's mission is to provide affordable teaching tools to educators, and the new Magnifying Lens accessory is no exception," said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design for IPEVO. "In science class, art class and in other contexts, details often need that small but important visual boost to truly come to life. The Magnifying Lens offers that boost, delivering crisp and high-resolution images so that everyone in the room can enjoy the visuals and, more importantly, understand the material that's being presented."
The Magnifying Lens, as well as both the Ziggi-HD USB Document Camera and the iZiggi-HD Wireless Document Camera for iPad, are available through the IPEVO Online Store at www.ipevo.com.
