Epson Announces DC-11 Document Camera with Outstanding Image Quality, Performance and Versatile Teaching Tools

Epson DC-11 Allows Teachers to Capture, Create and Share Classroom Content

DENVER (ISTE, Booth 1846) – June 28, 2010 – Epson America today announced the Epson DC-11 document camera, designed to help K-12 classrooms promote a dynamic learning environment. Making it easy to display textbooks, experiments, and 3D objects, as well as allow other engaging interactive lessons, the DC-11 includes a host of classroom-centric features, including high quality imaging, easy-to-use features and connectivity.

The Epson DC-11 features a five megapixel sensor, 10x digital zoom, and 30 frames-per-second video at full resolution for stunning image quality and performance. With its large capture area, the DC-11 can display up to two full pages with clarity and detail. Using the convenient built-in microphone and included software, the 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 remotely1.

In addition, the convenient split-screen feature allows for easy sharing of live and captured images simultaneously. With the built-in microscope adapter, it is 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.

“Epson understands education and the challenges faced in the classroom, and designed the DC-11 document camera as an easy-to-use tool that allows teachers to better engage visual learners,? said Sara Kim, associate product manager, Epson Projection, Epson America. “The DC-11 represents our most innovative document camera to date, providing a host of features that allow educators to better capture, create and share content.?
