The VZ-C6 is an elegant RedDot Design award-winning Ceiling mounted Visualizer, featuring our unique Synchronized Lightfield which provides for easy and intuitive positioning of display materials.
Lecture Capture Made Easy
The VZ-C6 comes with onboard recording functionality that allows entire presentations to be captured in exceptional quality, including the audio. It's a quick and easy solution for in-house production of training videos or lecture capture - the VZ-C6 is an 'all-in-one' HD recording solution
Creating Unique Multimedia Presentations
Recording functionality is not limited to the Visualizer's own camera. External content such as PowerPoint, digital images, webpages, PDF's, etc. from a PC or tablet connected to one of the Visualizer's HDMI In ports can be easily recorded in 720p HD resolution with a frame rate of up to 30 fps.
Internal Memory / USB Stick External Memory
Recorded videos and pictures can be saved to the 8GB Visualizer internal memory which has enough capacity to store thousands of images, or an average of 10 hours of video footage (depending on the content). USB sticks or external hard drives can also be used to provide extra storage space if required.
Convenient Wireless Connectivity
The VZ-C6 Visualizer comes with a WLAN stick which provides wireless connectivity using either 2.4GHz or 5GHz channels. This provides for quick and easy connection to WiFi enabled smartphones or laptops, and also enables our vSolution Connect for iPad app to be used together with the VZ-C6.
Support is provided for WEP, WPA and WPA2 wireless encryption. This allows for straightforward integration into the enterprise level IT networks commonly found in universities and other organizations, and ensures that no compromises in network security are required.
Efficient Knowledge Transfer via streaming
The VZ-C6 Visualizer can stream out video and audio to computers, tablets or smartphones on the internal network or over the internet using either H.264, Motion JPEG, or RTP Motion JPEG modes. An external device receiving the Visualizer's stream can also be used as a control monitor.
The VZ-C6 Visualizer enables videos and pictures to be either automatically or manually uploaded directly to an FTP server.
Snapshots / Email / Printing
We offer several possibilities for taking snapshots with the VZ-C6 and emailing or printing them using WolfVision software components. This facilitates quick and convenient distribution of images during a presentation.

Easy Positioning (with Synchronized Lightfield)
WolfVision's Synchronized Lightfield allows for very easy and intuitive positioning of objects. The illuminated part of the working surface is always identical to the pick-up area of the camera, so a user always knows exactly where to place objects or documents. When zooming in and out, the size of this lightfield changes accordingly.
Outstanding Build Quality
Outstanding mechanical quality and durability are essential requirements for all WolfVision products. Our Visualizers are built to last for a very long time.
Depth of Focus (Depth of Field)
The VZ-C6 is equipped with a wide angle lens with very high depth of focus. This is very important for working with larger 3-dimensional objects. Even at high magnification, images are always sharp from top to bottom.
Shadow Free Illumination
As the camera and the light projector are situated side by side within the Visualizer and follow the same path, shadows are almost completely eliminated.
During a presentation, it is often necessary to write something on a document on the working surface or to point to a certain detail with a finger or a pencil. Ceiling Visualizers are perfectly suited for this, as there are practically no shadows created, that might otherwise cover up important details.
No Light Adjustments Necessary
Due to the special light system of the VZ-C6, every part of the recorded picture is always perfectly illuminated. Hollow objects or complex 3-dimensional objects are always completely illuminated - even on the inside. As a result, there is never any need to adjust the light.
100% Reflection Free
The special lighting system of WolfVision's Ceiling Visualizers ensures that no Visualizer light is reflected back into the camera. The entire working surface is always 100% reflection-free.
Maintenance Free High-Intensity LED Light System
The VZ-C6 Ceiling Visualizer features a High-Brightness LED Light System with low power consumption. The LED light system has an incredibly long lifetime of 30,000 hours - which can be considered as "maintenance free" for most installations.
12x Optical Zoom + 4x Digital Zoom
The VZ-C6 comes with a premium quality high precision wide angle lens with 12x optical zoom factor. In combination with the 4x digital zoom the total zoom range of the new Ceiling Visualizers is 48x.
This allows for the installation in rooms at a height of up to 3m (10'), and facilitates zooming in very closely, as well as picking up very large objects.
The actual sizes of the largest and the smallest picture the unit can pick up depends on the installation height.
Zoom Range Calculation
Ceiling Visualizers differ from Desktop Visualizers in that the size of the smallest and largest picture the units can pick up is not fixed. Instead, it depends on how high above the table the unit is mounted. These tables show the ratio between mounting height and pick-up sizes.
Outstanding Picture Quality
WolfVision Visualizers are well-known for their unrivalled imaging quality, which is due to the perfect combination of high quality components and remarkable expertise.
Our Visualizers deliver high resolution throughout the entire picture, true-to-life colors, and consistently high frame rates to ensure smoothness of motion. They have fast and accurate autofocus and zooming, giving high quality, dependable results every time! High end lenses provide distortion-free images, and high tech lighting systems deliver smooth and consistent lighting without distracting reflections or hot spots.
WolfVision's state-of-the-art YSOP1 image processing engine enables the fast efficient processing of high volumes of data to ensure the consistent real-time display of impressive, high definition pictures with unsurpassed levels of accuracy and detail.
High Resolution/ sRGB Colour Precision
The WolfVision VZ-C6 Ceiling Visualizer features a high definition CMOS 1080p Full HD camera with sRGB color precision and native 1080p HD resolution. The VZ-C6 records 30 frames per second in all resolutions, and an impressive 980 lines of resolution are visible in every part of the picture, including the edges.
Firmware updates allow new features and technical improvements to be added at no cost! Downloading firmware updates from the internet and uploading them onto a Visualizer, using WolfVision's vSolution Link Software is very easy. WolfVision engineers are constantly working on new features and improvements to keep your units up to date with the technology of tomorrow.
Live to Freeze Comparison (Picture in Picture)
A "Live Picture to Freeze Picture Comparison" is possible on a single monitor or projector. The Visualizer uses a "Picture in Picture" function and shows the freeze image as a small picture in the lower left corner of the live image.
Optimized for Videoconferencing and Telepresence
The benefit of a VZ-C6 Ceiling Visualizer in video conferencing or Telepresence applications is that it is completely invisible to the audience.
WolfVision's camera electronics produce a very strong and stable picture, which is very important when a Visualizer is used as a document camera for videoconferencing systems.
The even lighting, smooth automatic brightness control and perfect focus are very important features, enabling video conferencing systems to digitize and transfer the picture from a WolfVision Visualizer much faster than pictures from other document cameras.
Write on your Visualizer!
Self-adhesive dry-erase working surfaces are available as optional accessory items. Once fixed to a working plate you can easily write and erase using suitable whiteboard markers and erasers. This enables the Visualizer to be used as a whiteboard or 'digital flipchart', and of course this handwritten material can also be included in recordings.
Working Plate for Transparencies (optional)
Transparencies can be picked up in perfect quality when placed on the optional accessory crystalline white working plate of the VZ-C6. Only x-rays and slides require an external lightbox.
A wide range of connectivity options ensures that effective external controlling is possible. USB, LAN, and infrared connections can be used to control the VZ-C6 from external devices, such as a room control system, a videoconferencing system or a computer. External LAN to RS232 adaptors can also be used if required.
