The Point 2 View USB Camera is released, and we’re receiving some great feedback from users, reviewers, and tech-minded folks from all corners of the globe. As a matter of fact, a couple of the most gratifying notes have come from educators and academia.
Educators have a lot of knowledge to share, and usually they’re sharing it with a large group of students, hence the invention of everyone’s favorite reusable writing surface, the chalkboard. More modern advances include the overhead projector as well as the digital projector. Projectors are great for multimedia presentations and large-screen demonstrations, but these pieces of equipment certainly don’t make the educational experience a cheap one. Those things are expensive!
vIn a time when everyone’s talking about the rising cost of education, enter the friendly and affordable web camera, the Point 2 View. Several educators with entrepreneurial spirits have written us about using the Point 2 View as an alternative to those super-expensive projectors. And the best part is, it’s pretty easy! The custom Point 2 View software included with the camera has a full screen mode, filling the entire computer screen, which is perfect for the large screen. Positioning the camera at just the right position and distance is a snap with the Point 2 View’s jointed stand. From there, it’s up to the 2 Megapixel camera and its super-sharp macro mode to provide the resolution and clarity necessary for small text, handwriting, or images.
From the responses we’ve received, the Point 2 View has been up to the task—and all for literally thousands of dollars less than expensive alternatives. Math educators can use the camera to demonstrate the solving of equations in real time. Engineers could display a demonstration on the big screen or show formulas or figures from a textbook. And almost everyone might find it handy to highlight a particular book passage or image detail for the benefit of the class.
I could go on, but you’ve probably had enough of an “education” for today. Suffice to say, if you’re an educator with a need for inexpensive projection, maybe you’ll consider checking out the little camera with a big vision, the Point 2 View!
