SMART delivers an integrated solution of hardware, software and services designed for superior performance and ease of use, and remains a world leader in interactive displays.
Turn real objects into digital content with the SMART Document Camera. It’s a great way to demonstrate, explore and understand– even when concepts are abstract or complex.
Capture images and create multimedia lessons
Create more engaging lesson content by easily capturing images, video and audio with the SMART Document Camera. It’s all easy – access the document camera from your SMART Notebook lesson with just one touch. You can even take a video of a science experiment with the document camera, save it on USB and use it in your next class and students can record their demonstrations during presentations for later review.
The SMART Document Camera is a perfect fit with other SMART products because you can control it right from your SMART Notebook lesson – with just one touch. It’s easy to show images on your SMART interactive display, LightRaise interactive projector or SMART Table interactive learning center.
Inspire students as they learn
When you can take an object – a leaf, for example – and display it for all to see, it’s easier for students to understand higher-level concepts like photosynthesis. You have a visual, kinesthetic way to teach and learn.
Mixed Reality Tools included
The SMART Document Camera allows objects to be viewed in 3D through Mixed Reality Tools. This provides students with a hands-on experience that engages students of all learning styles and helps them understand complex, abstract and conceptual content.
Integrated with SMART Notebook
Access and control the document camera directly from SMART Notebook software without leaving your lesson. You can write over images and save them in the Gallery.
Easily capture sharp, detailed images and videos
The 5 megapixel (MP) camera and 80x zoom provides students with sharp, detailed images and videos of any object. Plus, you can direct learning by zooming in on object details.
Mixed Reality included
Mixed Reality Tools allows you to manipulate and explore 3D, animation and audio-enriched content on the SMART Board. Simply place the Mixed Reality cube under the document camera’s lens when there is a 3D object on your SMART Notebook page.
Part of the SMART classroom
Seamlessly integrates with other SMART solutions, including the SMART Board, LightRaise projector and SMART Table, to display images.
360-degree view of any object
The flexible gooseneck design makes it easy to view objects from different angles. The lens can be aligned to a microscope using an optical adapter (included).
Easy image control
Automatically focus any image and easily adjust brightness levels to suit varying light conditions with the on-screen menu. And the LED lamp allows you to use it in a darkened room.
The document camera can be used with video conferencing software, such as SMART Bridgit, to share objects and demonstrations with remote students.
Save images to internal embedded memory, SD Card or USB flash drive. Note: these devices are not included.
Intuitive control panel
Control all functions – including magnification, brightness and focus settings – from one simple interface on the SMART Document Camera.

Multiple connection options
Connect to a SMART Board through a computer using the USB cable. You can connect it to other products, like a monitor, projection screen or flat-panel display through the DVI-D, VGA and composite connections. The USB port can be used for USB flash memory.
The document camera is compact and folds up, so it’s easy to store and move around the room or between classrooms.
