Leading optics manufacturer Canon USA aims to enhance communication in schools with the Canon Presentation Products Initiative, a program that lets educators buy–from one source–any combination of Canon’s extensive product line. Options include digital video camcorders, digital document cameras, remote-controlled cameras, a new presentation assistant sheet scanner, and Canon’s LCD projectors, as well as unique streaming video products and wireless presentation tools.
With Canon’s presentation tools, a teacher could make a presentation come alive by incorporating digital shots taken with a digital still, video, or document camera. The program includes popular Canon products like the LV-Series projectors, the VB101 Network Camera Server, and the PR-200 Presentation Assistant, which can scan and display paper documents, overhead transparencies, and more without connecting to a PC (simply connect it to a digital projector). It also features the DZ-3600U Digital Document Camera, a high-resolution digital imaging system–1,900 pixels by 1,424 pixels–that can capture an entire eight-and-a-half-inch by 11-inch document, legible to 8 pt. type, and display and transmit intricate details that are virtually invisible to the naked eye. This device lets users quickly integrate critical material– like a letter, detailed drawing, or small 3-D object–into any presentation.
Canon offers special package discounts and education pricing on products purchased through its Presentation Products Initiative. For more information, contact the company.
