A jack of all trades and master of value, the F15 document camera is capable of delivering incredible image quality, larger-than-life shooting area, 30fps at 1080P and best-in-class zoom – a true jack of all trades.
See it from Coast to Coast
With a larger-than-life viewing area (17.2" X 12.8"), the F15 wow's teachers and students with its capacity to display from the coast of California all the way to the coast of the Carolinas.
Mega pixels. Mega images. Mega Wows.
Nothing puts on a show like the 5 megapixels of the F15 doc cam that's built to show crisp text, bright images and vibrant colors. More megapixels mean better resolution (1080p!) and gorgeous detail for showcasing your classroom's best.
Shed some light.
Usually when the projector is on, the lights are off. Since the F15 document camera is connected to a projector, it has a built-in LED lights in the camera head to illuminate and display any object under the camera fantastically.
Make a point.
Connect the F15 to a computer and now you can tap into AVer's exclusive Academy Suite through which you can easily add annotations, highlights, arrows and captions.
With the plug-in, AVer's F15 directly integrates into any IWB software to easily add pictures and live video. You can even use the IWB or tablet software to control the F15. That's the power of AVer integration.
Place an AVer doc cam live image directly onto PowerPoint slides. You can even annotate over the entire slide (including the live doc cam image) as well as record the entire presentation.
With Sphere 2 it's all about the split screen- and share-ability. Feel free to split…the screen that is. Project a live F15 image, a live web cam image, and saved images /videos side by side. Why? Show exam questions next to sample answers. How to videos next to end results. The difference between an iceberg and a glacier is simple when seen. All the while, annotate, highlight and record the presentation and when finished, Sphere 2 will upload to many social media sites – YouTube, Dropbox – to share with colleagues, students and more.

So you have the F15, now what? We are so excited that you possess one of AVer's most popular document cameras. Below are a few ways to take it for a spin. Also be sure to check out our Resources page, that's filled with tips and tricks on how to use the doc cam.
Chances are, when you first get your doc cam you're going to want to begin using it right away. And that's good, but where does one begin? How about language arts? Giving examples to compare ones writing or ideas to others can broaden a student's mind:
Demonstrating the use of adjectives and adverbs. You can either project the Image of a page from a book, or write your own sentence on a sheet of paper under the doc cam. Better yet, get the students involved and have them write their own sentence under the doc cam.
How about reading aloud: Remember when we used to do that all of the time. But maybe a student either lost their book, or a dog ate it. No excused anymore, one book can now be seen by all the students, and their focus is at the front of the class (Or wherever you're projecting the book)
Learn collaborative writing skills: Start off writing one sentence on a sheet of paper under the document camera, and have the students come up one at a time to add their own sentence. This encourages a creative thinking process.
Remember the split-screen feature? It can be used in any curriculum, but one of the more fun and interesting places to use it is in science.
Demonstrate what the effects of a project may look like over a period of time. Using half the screen to show the start of the "live" project and display a prerecorded or saved picture in the other half to show the changes of the experiment over a period of time.
Us the software (Sphere 2) to take a time-lapse photo of crystals growing or a chick hatching from an egg over the weekend.
Using liquids in a clear beaker? No problem, use the manual focus mode, and focus anywhere you want.
Hands-on has always seemed to be the best way to connect. So what better way than to let the students work their math skills by using the doc cam tand helping fellow students learn by example? Manipulatives on the big screen anyone?
Base 10 blocks
We have learned that many teachers use their doc cams all-day, and every-day.
There's no reason not to.
Staying on track
Help the class get off to a good start in the morning by projecting a classroom to-do list
Working on a class project? What better way than to have a summary, guideline, or outline of the project for everyone to see?
Providing a step-by-step instruction works in the same manner, keeping the class on track, and headed towards a common goal.
Save time in the classroom. Project the master key/answer sheet under the doc cam, providing a visible answer key for everyone to see at once saves time.
