Toshiba’s Digital Products Division has introduced a new DLP projector, the TDP-SC35U, that comes with detachable document camera and sells for $899. The detachable document camera allows users to display transparencies, photos, two- and three-dimensional objects, or live demonstrations onto a projector screen, television, or monitor during a presentation or trade show.

The projector features 2,000 ANSI lumens, a 2,000-to-1 contrast ratio, and native SVGA (800 x 600) resolution. The projector also features two computer inputs, composite and S-video inputs, audio in/out capabilities, and a monitor output connector that allows users to view presentations from an external display in addition to what is projected on the screen.

By extending the TDP-SC35U’s document camera arm and positioning it almost anywhere, users can incorporate photo samples, printed documents, blueprints, microscopic images, three-dimensional objects, or close-up views of demonstrations. In an educational setting, the camera can be used to allow students to demonstrate how a problem was solved, to incorporate a science experiment, or to highlight how a piece of mechanical equipment was repaired, for example.

Weighing just 8.6 pounds, the TDP-SC35U projector includes digital keystone correction and a fully loaded remote control.
