Visualise UHD detail for easy learning

When it comes to teaching people, it’s often the detail that counts and more is always better. Being able to share your ideas and knowledge with a large audience can be difficult but a huge benefit.

With the Optoma DC554, you simply position items under the camera, connect it to a projector and show everything on the big screen live as it happens. Information becomes clear and everyone shares your vision.

The DC554 features a 13-megapixel sensor, 17x optical zoom and up to 30 frames-per-second video (at full resolution) for stunning image quality and performance allowing you to see detail often not visible to the human eye. Take photos or video using the camera functions and include them in future presentation – it’s all so easy.

Create more engaging lesson content by easily capturing images, video and audio with the DC554 Document Camera.

You can even take a video of a science experiment with the document camera, save it on your PC/Laptop via USB or save to a SD Card and use it in your next class and students can record their demonstrations during presentations for later review.

The DC554 is powerful, robust and full of useful features that will revolutionise any classroom lessons or meeting room presentations.

Start sharing instantly and do editing together live in UHD, 1080i/p, 720p or XGA as a class through Smart DC, supplied with the DC554, which include enhanced drawing and annotation tools. You can even turn your lesson into video clips through the recording feature and save to either you PC/laptop/MAC or to an SD card.

You can also use Skype to connect to another school and share your ideas.

Capture it, save it, display it

Sometimes we want to keep a memory of what the camera sees: by pressing the “SNAP” button on the remote control or base unit, images and video can be stored directly onto an SD card. To review your images just hit the playback button. For permanent storage on a hard drive just connect a PC/laptop using the supplied USB cable and software or save direct to your SD card (32GB max).

HDMI in/out

Have a HD projector or panel? We have HDMI in/out so you can pass-through or go direct with only one cable; you can show full 1080i/p High Definition or UHD quality video and audio to really showcase your students' best vivid work.

VGA in/out for legacy devices

The DC554 has both VGA in/out and HDMI in/out so will connect to most devices.

Rotating camera lens

Rotating the camera lens enables easily set-up if you doing back projection where the image would be upside down. Just rotate the lens so your image is the correct way up, even if it’s behind you. You can also rotate the image in software using SMART DC.

Flexible (fold) arm

With an incredibly flexible neck, the DC554 is designed to help teachers and students with its ability to fold and turn the head so allowing you to get up-close and personal to capture that perfect image.

Record audio and video

The built in microphone enables easy video and audio recording to create multimedia content for lessons and student presentations.

Eco friendly LED illumination (3 x mode brightness)

Sometimes you need a bit of extra illumination. The DC554 uses eco-friendly; low power LED lamps which are cool to the touch and mercury free, however, due to the excellent sensitivity of the camera the lamp is seldom required. The LED light has 3 light levels for even more flexibility.

Picture-in-picture, capture, freeze, rotation and flip

With the DC554 you have ultimate control. Want to freeze something under the camera whilst handing out the original, or perhaps compare items using the Picture-in-Picture “PIP” so that comparisons can be made between one item and another.
