AVerMedia Information, Inc., a provider of interactive digital multimedia video and software, unveils its first “wireless document camera”—the W30—a mobile device that unleashes the learning environment from a teacher's desk to the classroom and even outside, the company says in a written statement.
The W30 includes a lightweight and portable document camera that communicates seamlessly with its base unit, that receives, records, enhances and transmits content, all at 30 feet per second (fps), AverMedia says. The W30 delivers consistent content no matter where the document camera is within a 45-foot radius of the base unit, the company says.
The W30 can operate with or without a computer (both MAC or PC), and without a computer it wirelessly records and sends images to the projector or monitor independently, the company says. In addition, the W30 offers presentation tools that help display what’s important and cover-up what’s not.
However, by adding a computer, the user gains access to software tools that help make the curriculum easier and more enjoyable, AVerMedia says. Coupled with battery life that lasts an entire school day, one-touch recording to USB/SD cards and all the specially designed software make the W30 a wireless document camera system that transforms an entire classroom into a digital learning playground, the firm says. The W30 will be available in May, the company says.
