Main functions

This product is an educational tool for making lessons using ELMO's Document Camera more enjoyable and easier to understand.

The product has various indispensable features for teaching more effective lessons.

- Drawing on the Document Camera image

Because you can draw directly onto the Document Camera image, you can directly communicate the important points that cannot be explained fully just by display.

- Large and viewer-friendlyscreen

Equipped with an innovative user interface born from ELMO's in-depthknowledge of lessons using Document Cameras. The icons are large and easy to remember, and are simple to operate from anywhere in the classroom. This provides powerful support for your lessons.

- Wireless function brings new possibilities

Thanks to the USB wireless communication, you are free to draw up to 15 meters away from the computer.

- Various recording methods are available immediately

With "Lesson recording", you can easily record both the text written on the Document Camera and audio. Easy, one-touchplayback can be performed of recorded images. Both the examples that you want to show the students and any written text are recorded together, so you can show them to students again to help with their learning.

Other recording methods are also available to suit different objectives. "Intermittent recording" enables the monitoring of changes over a long period of time, while "Frame recording" allows you to record only the scenes that you want.

- Effortless creation of the required teaching materials

You can create teaching materials for lessons with the Document Camera. It is simple to retrieve the created teaching materials for use in class. This product is designed especially for use while lessons are in progress, enabling you to teach a wide range of lessons without interrupting the flow of the class.
