Lumens Introduces Their Latest Ladibug – DC166 Visual Presenter – Powerful Optical Zoom in Portable Size

Lumens Integration, Inc. (http://www.LumensEducation.com) today announced the availability of the Lumens DC166, the latest portable visual presenter in their Ladibug line that combines a large 14”x11” platen with high-quality 6x optics for stellar image quality and the powerful features used most often in the classroom. The Lumens DC166 includes full image rotation and a book mode, two features that make it indispensable for the classroom.

“The DC166 provides the perfect mix of image quality, usability, features with a small size,” said Tsailing Merrem, Lumens’ vice president of marketing. “The DC166 is replacing one of our most popular models and we knew we had to really raise the bar with new features to live up to expectations like we have in the past with many industry first features such as hardware-based video recording and FastSlide™, while keeping the price at the same level to appeal to our current users.”

Along with the powerful included 6x optical zoom, the Lumens DC166 provides true SXGA output, delivering 66% more image detail than XGA resolution. The higher output resolution works in conjunction with full image rotation and auto-focus, making it easy for educators to integrate high-quality visual content into the classroom every day.

The DC166 is the only visual presenter in this price range to offer hardware-based standalone video recording. With a push of a button, teachers can record videos directly to an SD card. This eliminates extra steps or the need to connect to a computer and load software in order to record lessons as is required on some document cameras. Lumens DC166 also provides both external and internal memory. A built-in hard drive holds 120 JPEG images, while an SD card slot makes recording videos and back up easy.

Built on the same powerful platform as the high-end models, the DC166 Ladibug has exceptional image quality, and image handling performance. The visual presenter comes with FastSlide™ technology and can load images in as little as .2 seconds making it easier for teachers to keep lessons moving quickly.

The DC166 also includes queue™ Software version 4, with support for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Mac OS X and Linux along with powerful new capabilities for video, audio and still picture recording and annotation, controlled by Lumens familiar remote control.

With a compact form factor and lightweight construction, the Lumens DC166 was designed with portability in mind. Along with portability comes flexibility with easy connections to TVs, monitors, projectors and interactive whiteboards, so teachers can bring the DC166 into their classroom and have it up and running with minimal downtime.

Highlights of Lumens’ DC166 specifications include:

  • SXGA resolution;
  • 6x optical zoom;
  • Internal memory that holds up 120 JPEG images;
  • Support for USB 2.0 high speed (up to 480 Mbps)
  • Stand alone video recording directly to SD cards;
  • queue Software supporting annotation and audio/video recording directly to PC;
  • Support for Linux platforms – via USB driver; and
