Document Cameras

A visual learner’s dream

The document camera which is also known as a visual presenter, visualizer  or digital overhead, is an AV product used to capture images in real time for displaying on a larger screen or interactive SMART Board to a large audience.  A document camera is able to magnify and project the images of live, three dimensional objects as well as transparencies.

This allows a teacher, lecturer or presenter to write on a sheet of paper or to display a two or three-dimensional object while the audience watches. The camera takes the picture which in turn produces a live picture using a projector.  Different types of document cameras allow great flexibility in terms of placement of objects.  Larger objects, for example, can simply be placed in front of the camera and the camera rotated as necessary or a ceiling mounted document camera can also be used to allow a larger working space to be used.

The most common applications that we see for a document camera to be used include:

  • Simple presentation of material in meetings, conferences and training sessions
  • Classrooms or lecture halls
  • Presentation of evidence in legal settings or courtrooms
  • Various medical applications including telemedicine and display of x-rays
  • Videoconferencing and telepresence meetings
