The Elmo PX-30E Document Camera captures 4K video and 12MP still images and lets you output up to UHD 4K video at 30 fps via HDMI, HDBaseT, and USB outputs, or up to 1080p at 60 fps. The PX-30E has several feature enhancements over its predecessor, the PX-30, such as an enhanced LCD preview touchscreen, an upgraded glare-reducing LED light, a zoom dial and autofocus button on the camera, a smaller jog dial, faster brightness response, HDMI cable locks, and panel lockout and wake-on-LAN features.
The HDBaseT output allows you to carry a 4K signal up to 230′ or 1080p60 signal 330′ to a projector or other display that supports HDBaseT. Video signals connected to one of the HDMI inputs can be recorded to an SD card or USB flash drive, and they can be output over the output ports.
Featuring 12x optical and 2x sensor zoom, the PX-30E allows 24x zooming without image degradation. Add to that 12x digital zoom and you can zoom in on an object by up to 288x (when outputting at 1080p). The physical shooting area of the document camera allows you to capture up to A4 portrait and A3 landscape images. The shooting area is magnetic and can be drawn on by first placing the included whiteboard sheet on top and drawing on the sheet using an optional whiteboard marker. Whatever you draw or any annotations you make can be captured live (or recorded) by the camera and presented live on your output display. The whiteboard sheet is erasable with a supplied sponge. A small but bright LED light is built into the neck of the PX-30E and can be used to illuminate your document/image/subject and reduce glare.
The PX-30E features a 5″ touchscreen LCD surrounded by controls. The controls include a zoom jog dial and an autofocus button. Included as a free download with the PX-30E is the Elmo Interactive Toolbox software for Windows and Mac. With the software installed on your computer, you’ll be able to perform interactive operations with features such as Sticky Notes, Trimming, Stamps, Time-Lapse Recording, Compare Picture, Mask, Enlarge, Annotate, and more. When you apply these features, you’ll see the results on the output display.
