The SimplicityCam 5z Duet Document Camera from Recordex USA is really two cameras in one: a main 5 MP camera that captures 30 fps and a secondary 720p camera for picture-in-picture or 3D capture. The main camera is mounted on a 12" flexible arm, and has a "QuadPage" viewing area that is slightly larger than A2 paper size: 17.5 x 23.5". The SimplicityCam interfaces with a computer using USB 2.0, and features the XSight HD Viewer presentation software for Windows and OS X. It folds down for enhanced portability when not in use. While deployed, it features a free-standing desktop form factor and incorporates an LED light strip along the upper arm section that can be adjusted between four brightness levels.

Secondary 720p Camera
A second camera with 720p resolution is mounted alongside the joint between the two flex arms. This camera can be used for 3D capture or to create a picture-in-picture effect to enhance your presentation. The second camera is accompanied by its own, dedicated microphone
96x Total Zoom
The camera features a digital zoom range 16x; in addition, the zoom can be augmented by 6x Flex Zoom. Flex Zoom involves lowering the camera arm to bring the camera physically closer to the subject, effectively magnifying the image
30 fps Recording
Capturing at 30 fps, the SimplicityCam is suitable for moving subjects as well as static ones. 30 fps is generally considered fast enough to avoid undesirable motion blur or choppy footage
Dual Built-In Microphones
A microphone at each camera allows you to record the audio portion of your presentation to accompany video and images
XSight HD Software
Included presentation software that runs on Windows and OS X platforms:
  • View and record stills and video from the camera
  • Annotate live over the image as you present
  • ANNOZOOM: Annotations automatically scale as you zoom in
  • Picture-in-picture: Overlay a smaller secondary image of the main image, or split-screen for comparative purposes
  • 2D/3D Multiview
  • iMMPad SE Integration
    The camera is compatible with Recordex's iMMPad SE Wireless slate software allowing you to bring the interactivity of a slate to your presentations
    USB Webcam Functionality
    In addition to the XSight HD software that is included, that USB stream from the camera can be picked up by many applications that support webcams, including Skype
    Microscope Ready
    The SimplicityCam can be adapted to microscopes using optional adapters
