The new TeleView Wireless Video Otoscope (model EV300) is a wireless video otoscope that eliminates the need for a cable connection between the hand-held otoscope and laptop computer or TV. The EV300 is comprised of two basic components: 1) the wireless, rechargeable handpiece, and 2) a wireless receiver.
The wireless handpiece (shown right) houses 5 white LED bulbs with the capability to change brightness levels via the + or – buttons located on the back of the handpiece. It is also equipped with a focus wheel and digital zoom capabilities that can magnify images up to 2x. The EV300 handpiece contains a 1GB micro-SD card that can store approximately 3,000 images in the handpiece. Images may be downloaded to any computer by attaching the EV300 handpiece to a computer via a USB cable.
The second component is the wireless receiver (not shown). This component will connect to a computer or TV. For Windows 7, Vista, XP and Server 2000, the EV300 wireless receiver will connect directly to the computer via a USB cable (included). The user must install product software for the computer to recognize the wireless transmitter. It will work with Mac computers but requires the additional purchase and installation of a video capture card. The EV300 wireless receiver will also work with any TV as long as it has a typical composite video input connection (RCA plug).
The transmission range of the TeleView Wireless Video Otoscope is approximately 33 feet (10 meters) in direct sight. The lithium ion battery housed in the handpiece will last for approximately 90 minutes of continuous use when fully charged. The battery can be recharged by connecting the handpiece to either the USB port of the wireless receiver, the USB port found on any computer, or to a wall outlet (via USB AC adapter and silver USB recharging cable packaged with device). The battery life is approximately 300 recharges; if the battery is recharged every other day, it will last about 1-2 years. It comes packaged with reusable specula (3mm, 4mm, and 5.5 mm). A wired version of this product (model EV400) is also available.
