Excellent Image Quality

DC172 is a professional-quality visualizer with a 13-megapixel Sony sensor which produces bright images and vivid colors. It supports capture and live reproduction at resolutions up-to 4K and visualizes the smallest detail and even fast action. DC172 is great for use in education, business presentations and training. 

Standalone Solution

With our exclusive PC-free solution, users can annotate images and control menu settings by plugging simply a mouse into the unit. For ease of use, DC172 records images and video to a USB Flash drive (not supplied). These features make this document camera very portable and also quick to learn with no specialist skill required.

HDMI Output & Pass-thru

DC172 builds on the USB-only DC136 to include an HDMI output for direct connection to displays and projectors. The auto-tune button automatically optimizes the camera to produce sharp, color balanced, and bright images that look great on 4K monitors, projectors, and large format displays. A unique feature is the HDMI pass-through: the operator can switch between the camera output an image from a DVD player, PC, or tablet.

Lumens Ladibug Software

If connected to a computer by USB, DC172 supports the Lumens Ladibug 4K application. This creative software gives users access to advanced features which include annotating images, masking and cropping images, and sharing saved files. Ladibug is easy to use and is compatible with Windows and Mac computers. USB Plug & Play set up could not be easier. Using the Ladibug software, the computer can save videos locally or share files across networks. 

Audio and Video Recording

Along with clear video recordings, the document camera’s built-in microphone captures great-sounding audio. As a USB device with 4K camera and microphone, Lumens DC172 can also operate as a live webcam. It works seamlessly with Zoom, Teams, Skype, and WebEx platforms to provide an excellent video conferencing experience for remote guests. The presenters can position the camera head over a document, angle it towards themselves or focus on students to encourage group participation.  

Imaging Flexibility

The 4K camera is mounted on a flexible, multi-angle gooseneck design. The height is adjustable for close-up or wide-angle imaging. The lens can capture large documents and objects above A3 in size (16.5” x 12.4”), giving the DC172 the versatility for use in any location and for a wide range of applications.
