The new AVerVision355AF 5-mega pixel portable document camera boasts one-touch audio and video recording to a USB flashdrive, full 1080p high-definition output, 80X total zoom capabilities, and full 14” x 11” page size viewing. The new AVer+ software has enhanced object oriented annotation, project tools, image capture, video recording, LAN networkability, and fully integrates with AVerMedia’s other interactive classroom solutions.

Pros: Because this records video with audio directly to a USB flashdrive, SD card or a computer, a teacher can easily record a lesson while teaching then transfer it to another computer, or even post it to her Web site for review by students and parents. The Split Screen feature allows teachers to compare live images to reference images. The VGA Passthrough allows users to switch between computer and document camera presentation. Notable features include the 5 mega pixel camera, LED light, easy push button controls, compact size, and 24 frames-per-second video with auto focus.

Cons: None.

Overall evaluation: This document camera is another quality product from AVerMedia. The company makes some of the highest quality, easiest to use, yet low-price document cameras on the market—without skimping on features.

Retail price: $799.
