Classroom system cameras integrate in a variety of ways, and typically have the ability to be set up for a desired condition or for a specific application.
NOTE: The document cameras featured in our centrally supported classrooms are also available for daily checkout from the VCU IT Support Center locations.
The Epson DC-20 has been selected as the standard document camera for centrally scheduled classrooms. This HD camera is perfect for:
> showing small details on objects brought into the classroom
> showing live written notes
To use the document camera with the podium system, follow these steps:
Adjust the camera by bending the joints of the camera's neck to different settings.
> 3 joints: 1 at the head of the camera, 1 in the middle of the neck, and 1 at the swivel base.
> There is also an on-board light switch found on the front of the camera's head.
