Video Goggles with an Elastic Headband. The video goggles are powered by a 4.5 volt battery pack (3 each of AAA/IEC LR03 batteries) and have a service life of over 45 minutes on a battery pack. The field of vision is totally sealed by a comfortable foam ring. The images received are projected by 2 LCD screens directly onto the eyes and thereby give the illusion of a movie screen. A built-in gyro sensor controls the direction of the camera in the train by movements of the wearer's head. These goggles can also be connected directly to a DVD player for watching films. A headset included with the goggles gives stereo sound. Miniature Video Camera. This is a high-resolution color video camera with a sender frequency of 2.4 gigahertz. Power for it is picked up directly from the track (digital operation only). The low level light effect is extremely high and is caused by automatically switching to the black and white mode (similar to the human eye). The camera's focus is programmed in the range of 20-50 cm / approximately 8" – 20". ICE 2. Prototype: German Railroad, Inc. (DB AG) class 402 InterCity Express, three-unit train set. Model: The powered end car has a digital decoder. There is one intermediate car and 1 cab control car. The pantographs can be raised and lowered but are not wired to take power from the catenary. Train length 76.5 cm / 30-1/8". AV Cable for DVD Connections. The AV cable enables you to transmit the images sent from the train to a personal computer or a television with an AV input. This cable also allows connections to a DVD player so that you can use the goggles to watch DVD films in a cinema format. Case for Transport and Storage. A high quality case with a foam core for transport and storage comes with Märklin Mobile Vision. The Märklin Mobile Vision system can be transported safely and stored in this case. This opens up the possibility of running on the layouts of your model railroad friends.
New: Märklin Mobile Vision. The Adventure World of Model Railroading Right from the Engineer's Cab. With the new Märklin Mobile Vision you can run on your model railroad layout right from the engineer's cab. It's real easy, place the train on the track, put on the goggles, and you're ready to go. A high-resolution miniature video camera built into the cab of a Märklin ICE model films your layout directly from the vantage point of the locomotive engineer and sends the images simultaneously to a new design of video goggles by means of the latest video transmission technology. After just a few moments you are immersed in the beauty of your layout, you see details from a totally new perspective, and you ride along as if you were personally in the engineer's cab of the locomotive. The camera transmits very high resolution images at distances up to 20 meters / 66 feet, even when the train is in a tunnel, with little low light level effects – because in this situation the camera switches to a black and white mode just as the human eye would. This black and white mode generates images even in minimal light conditions that still have a sharp contrast. Another element supporting the reality of the train in operation is the movement sensor built into the video goggles; this controls the camera at the head of the train. A simple movement of the wearer's head to the right or the left causes the camera to turn in that direction also and allows you to see scenery and buildings along the route. The recorded images can be transmitted to more than just the video goggles. They can also be sent digitally to a personal computer by means of an AV cable included with Märklin Mobile Vision. At the computer the images can be cut, processed, and sound can be added. The image received can also be shown on a television with an AV input.
