The DC-21 document camera helps educators bring life to the classroom using multimedia objects such as books, pictures, 3D objects, and more. Its advanced features – HD 1080p resolution, large imaging sensor, 12x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom, microscope adapter, and audio and video recording capabilities – give teachers the flexibility to explore more during their lessons while providing students with high-quality images and audio.
The Epson BrightLink Pro All-in-One Interactive Display bundle brings together the best in projection, mount and screen technology to create a complete interactive display system large enough for everyone in a classroom to read. The bundle consists of a 100-inch Da-Lite IDEA screen and a BrightLink Pro 1430Wi interactive presentation display. The 100-inch diagonal image and the screen’s 2.5 gain create optimized readability and superior image quality. Using the presentation display’s interactive features, students and teachers can write on the display in real time, with no PC required. The Whiteboard Sharing Tool allows up to 15 participants to join a whiteboarding session directly from any mobile device with a web browser or from another BrightLink Pro – without using software or an app.
