Faculty Resources: Document Camera
The document camera is a real-time image capture device for displaying objects to a larger audience. Document camera technology consists of a video camera mounted on a stand with an illuminated display platform under the camera lens. Material is placed on the platform and projected through an overhead-mounted projector or by way of a television set.
The document camera allows a teacher to display almost anything placed under its lens, including transparencies, opaque materials such as black and white or colored paper printouts and 3D objects for class obsercations.
