The ability to display documents, 3-D objects, microscopic images, and more through virtually any multimedia projector, monitor or TV greatly enhances visual learning and retention for nearly any classroom subject. However, the ability to connect all document cameras in one campus together through the existing Local Area Network now provides the ability for multiple classrooms, or even the entire school to view and share live document camera lessons and demonstrations. For example, a science lab can conduct a dissection for all 6th grade students, without having to group them in one room. Each classroom can access and view the live demonstration, and they can even control the document camera from their location. Annotation, image capture, video recording, zoom, and more can be controlled by each classroom accessing the demonstration on the network.

Whether using the AVerVision CP300 on the network or individually, the new software is complete with new annotation, video recording with audio, document camera controls, and more. These enhanced features make the AVerVision CP300 truly interactive and intuitive, whether in a single classroom, or campus-wide.

Furthermore, a completely new FlexArm design with a patented camera head locking mechanism increases portability while adding security to the camera head whether being stored, or moved from class to class. The enhanced 3.2 mega pixel camera sensor with AutoFocus produces higher quality images then previous 3.2 mega pixel AVerVision Document Cameras. Exclusive presentation features such as AVerBox and AVerVisor provide additional demonstration tools not found in any other document camera. 16X total zoom and pan, a fast 24 fps video frame rate, and compatibility with both PC and MAC make the AVerVision CP300 a versatile, yet easy-to-use interactive classroom tool.

"The new AVerVision CP300 Portable Document Camera is a groundbreaking classroom presentation solution, combining many features of other interactive classroom products in one new patented design," says Szu Wang, Product Manager for AVerMedia Technologies, Inc. "The network sharing capability, combined with the enhanced software and exceptional video clarity offers a one-stop lesson demonstration tool."
