The Big Picture
Regardless of whether your classroom has a projector or a big screen monitor, the best way to keep kids from squinting at a document camera’s image is to use its highest resolution setting. Qomo’s QD6100SX can create a pinpoint sharp SXGA image and has a 10X optical zoom lens as well as a motorized camera that can pan across a page, book or Petri dish. A big bonus is Qomo’s Multi-Media Switching system that allows teachers to connect it to two computers as well as a DVD or VCR player. It comes with a remote control as well as a 2-year warranty and will go on sale in January 2009.
