The Vaddio CeilingVIEW HD HideAway for ClearVIEW Cameras is a motorized lift system for hiding an HD-18, HD-19, or HD-20 ClearVIEW robotic PTZ camera in the ceiling, completely concealing it when it's not in use. When the camera's turned on, the HideAway system quietly lowers it from the ceiling.
This creates an aesthetically pleasing solution for installing a WallVIEW Short Range or DVI/HDMI system that employs a HD-20/19/18 camera in a conference room, training room, classroom, or any presentation environment. The back box hosts and conceals the camera, mount, and cabling in the ceiling for a clean look. It also deters tampering and theft.
The HideAway system includes a power interface that provides voltage for the lifting mechanism as well as lift-control signals over Cat-5e cable, up to 100' away. The lift contact pair on the power interface is operated with a dry contact closure, from either a simple manual switch or an
A/V control system contact closure, to initiate the lift control signal to lower the lift. In turn, opening the lift contact closure raises the lift. The Vaddio IR Remote Commander, which is included with all ClearVIEW camera packages, can control the CeilingVIEW just as it controls camera PTZ functions.
CeilingVIEW HD HideAway is designed to be installed in most suspended or sheet rock ceilings and attached to the building structure. The back box assembly, ceiling bridge mounting bracket, and ceiling trim ring are easy to install in any presentation room.
