What is a Document Camera?

Similar to how we use overhead projectors, document cameras project what is under the lens onto the screen – but document cameras allow you to bring lessons to life. Document cameras are small enough to carry and allow the projection of real-time video, pre-stored pictures, or pre-recorded videos onto television, smart board or projector screen. Display almost anything by pointing the repositionable camera lens onto a piece of paper, specimen, or visual learning aid. Document cameras have a variety of features depending on model, but most allow educators to zoom in or out, highlight or mask parts of the image, and annotate a frozen image. Document cameras come in a variety of different models with an array of features.
