Add high-definition magnification and dimension to original objects, documents or drawings with Vaddio’s new CeilingVIEW HD-18 DocCam document camera system. Replacing the CeilingVIEW HD document camera, the CeilingVIEW HD-18 DocCAM features an 18x optical zoom lens for enhanced detail and greater zoom capabilities, and a 1.3 megapixel CCD image sensor with a 1.8-LUX for better-quality low-light performance. Select from either HD resolutions through our Quick-Connect system or the analog RGBHV output on the camera backbox.

“Using our own ClearVIEW HD-18 technology for the new high definition document camera allows us not only greater zoom capability,” explains Rob Sheeley, President of Vaddio, “but also a higher-quality CCD sensor for exceptional color and detail reproduction at very high resolutions.” Both Quick-Connect Short Range (SR) and Quick-Connect DVI/HDMI SR options are available. The CeilingVIEW HD-18 with Quick-Connect SR outputs component HD (YPbPr) at 720p, 1080i or 1080p. The CeilingVIEW HD-18 with DVI/HDMI Quick-Connect SR outputs simultaneous component HD and DVI/HDMI at 720p, 1080i or 1080p. Both cameras also provide the option for RGBHV resolutions at 1024 x 768, 1280 x 720 or 1680 x 1050 at 60 Hz. Add the CCU Image Controller to either of the CeilingVIEW HD-18 DocCAM systems and how you have the ability to adjust red and blue gain, gamma, chroma, knee, pedestal, iris and gain. User-defined adjustments may be stored using two Scene buttons. Technical specifications, install guides and sample configurations are available at

Bluebell Triple Stack Silhouette

Bluebell Opticom at the 2018 NAB Show

At the 2018 NAB Show, Bluebell will demonstrate the Silhouette line of rugged, deployable, high-density, mixed-technology media converters. The heart of the Silhouette power-insertion product family for robotic cameras in remote production scenarios, the Silhouette is a fully integrated 4K UHD robotic head system that works with SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 4K UHD cameras to provide power and control to the camera head and fibre optic connectivity for the remote-control panel. As a result, operators no longer need to rely on stadium power. The customizable Silhouette comes in three sizes and can accommodate any combination of 4K HDR, quad 3G-SDI, trilevel sync, GigE, serial data control, communications, IFB, and multichannel audio signals. Customers can choose to get power from a 12V DC supply, a V-Mount battery, a hybrid cable, or a combination of the three. Introduced at IBC2017, Silhouette units are deployed all over the world in sports, theatre, and music venues.
