It also includes large capture area allowing users display up to two full pages with clarity and more detail. Using the convenient built-in microphone and included software, the Epson DC-11 allows teachers to easily record audio and video to capture classroom lessons and student presentations, which can be easily uploaded to class websites for students who missed the lesson or are taking the class remotely.
In addition, Epson DC-11 document camera also offers convenient split-screen feature that allows easy sharing of live and captured images simultaneously.
With the built-in microscope adapter, Epson DC-11 is more easy to share with the entire class a microscopic demonstration, much larger-than-life, eliminating the need for each student to take turns looking through the microscope.
