LAKE ZURICH, Ill., Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GBC®, a leader in education and office products, has introduced its new line of Discovery™ document cameras.
Portable and easy to use, GBC Discovery document cameras are a perfect solution to help educators make their lectures or classroom instruction visually comprehensive and interactive. All three Discovery models are equipped with an 8 Mega Pixel sensor -- the best sensor available on any document camera in the market. A superior sensor captures more detail while offering greater resolution and light sensitivity. This allows instructors to generate brilliant visuals that capture students' attention, engage them in teaching lessons and enhance their learning experiences.
All three GBC Discovery document cameras – models 1100, 3000, and 3100 – operate as stand-alone devices and connect directly via VGA or HDMI to an overhead projector or flat screen television. Some similar models require interface to a computer.
Both the Discovery 3000 and 3100 models have pass-through functionality that enable a user ease of toggling between the camera and a computer, without the need to change cable connections. The user can switch between document camera display and computer content. In addition, the Discovery 3100 unit has a unique light box that allows for displaying film or slides close up, a distinctive feature not available in other products in the market.
"Our document cameras are equipped with powerful, high-performing features, yet are packaged for budget-conscious educators," said Don Olson, Product Manager. "They are ready to connect and operate right out of the box, and are shipped with a complete set of output cables, adapter and a remote control. Most other competitive products do not include these cables and accessories, which is an additional cost to the user."
These features and functions, found on all three Discovery models, can help teachers take their lectures to the next level:
Enhanced Teaching Experience
- Zoom with Auto Focus to capture and clearly display images
- Image and Video Capture with Picture-in-Picture capability
- Image Freeze/Pause: Keep an image on display while the object is being adjusted or passed around.
- Highlight and Mask functions to emphasize or block content
- Microscope adapter for use in the science lab
- Annotate and edit using Discovery application software
- Anti-glare sheet for improved usability and versatility.
- Intuitive control panel
- Remote control to facilitate teacher mobility in the classroom
- HDMI and VGA connectors for seamless interfacing with projectors, HD screens and standard VGA supported devices
- LED lamp with three settings to light materials in dim or dark rooms
- Flexible neck for no-hassle adjustments.
"All three Discovery document cameras come with a five-year warranty. GBC has a long history of providing service and support to users. Our service network can assist with installation on any GBC document camera," Don added.
