About the course




Datavideo's iCAST mini is a multimedia device designed for single-operator applications. Whether it's small-scale corporate training sessions, mid-sized hybrid classrooms, or conference halls, the iCAST mini is the perfect solution for your online presentation needs. The one-button-one-function feature on a unique and user-friendly touch panel control ensures that even novice users can operate this device.

Graphical User Interface on Touch Panel

An intuitive graphical user interface on a 7-inch touch panel with anti-fingerprint protection provides you with a clear view from any angle.


Videos and PIP Mode

Switch rapidly between your presentation and the camera input, or overlay a PIP window on the program video. You can also swap between the program out video and the PIP image, thereby enhancing the quality of your presentation.


Images and Graphic Icons for Keys to Simplify Workflow

Using a real image or a built-in graphic icon as your key icon allows you to easily identify the saved camera view. Capture camera images and save them as thumbnails, which are then applied to icons of shortcut keys on the Home screen. Simply pressing the thumbnail will send the PTZ camera to the pre-saved position.


One USB Type C Cable to Merge Online and Offline Teaching

Without altering the existing classroom settings, the iCAST mini can transmit video and audio to any video conferencing platform via the UVC interface using a USB Type-C cable. You don't need to install drivers or perform any configuration.



PTZ Cameras with Auto Tracking

Automate your presentation with Datavideo's auto-tracking PTC cameras, such as PTC-145 (HD) or PTC-285 (4K UHD). They allow you to switch between full-body, half-body, and close-up shots, capturing the desired images. Your only responsibility is to create the presentation!
