Data projectors are commonly used to display websites, movies and presentations against a flat surface. All of our data projectors come with the cables necessary to connect to your computer, document camera, or most video players. We recommend also reserving speakers and/or a portable screen with your Data Projector request.
Document Cameras are frequently used in conjunction with data projectors, to display close-up pictures of live demonstrations. Use them in your classroom to display parts of a textbook there on your desk, or show the details of a hands-on demonstration.
