The SMART document camera enables teachers to display detailed images and video of any physical object and instantly incorporate that material into digital lessons using the SMART Board interactive whiteboard and Notebook collaborative learning software.
The SMART document camera enables users to zoom in or out on an image, write over images, and capture still images directly into Notebook software or any software application.
For presentations, users can interact with objects placed under the document camera. A student presenter could dissect a frog for the entire class to see and capture the project as an image or video to add to a Notebook file on frog dissection. The teacher could then use the interactive whiteboard to access a web site and review additional information about dissection, adding it to the Notebook file.
The features of the SMART document camera include Notebook software integration, a straightforward control panel, automatic focus and brightness control, optical and digital zoom, a removable tablet stage, rotating head, SD memory card slot, and lightweight body with a cable lock.
The SMART document camera begins shipping in spring 2008 at a suggested education price of $849.
