The Avervision does that as well - it is both a direct camera to projector device and a USB camera for taking pictures or recording video.
And it make the tea as well
And it plans lessons
And it ....
PS did I mention they are good
The beauty of it is that then you can write on it etc...
I know that Smart have a button that puts it directly into a notebook - although I'm assuming that's only for their own product.
I wonder if there is an equivalent that will capture from the webcam really easily and put it directly into a Promethean flipchart.
I'm at a school with the new ones on Thurs so I'll test it out for you
I have seen our Genee Vision 6100 used in Art: the teacher says its the best way to show pupils how to shade/cross hatch/use a pencil/ light vs dark that she knows. She also uses it to display exemplar work to the whole class. If I said I was taking it away now she'd lynch me, and whilst not an ICT agnostic she would not describe herself as ICT confident!! I shall definitely be buying more of these
We've just had a demo of the Genee Vison 6100 and the teachers were wowed by it. But it's £800, do the cheaper ones have the split screen option etc.?
We have some of the AverVison things... I keep referring to them as Epidiascopes.. which was the technical name for the OHP, with the bulb in its base... and it confuses the teachers.
Anyway, we have found that they are good for most stuff, EXCEPT, the Art dept find that the colour changes, as it reacts to their hands. Now, apparently the Elmo New Products from ELMO USA P30S Digital Visual Presenter can cope with the colour changes, it's just a little bit more expensive, and I've never seen it for sale in the UK...
One of the features of the Genee 6100 was the split screen. Is this standard on most models?
We have been testing Avervision visualisers and they are great. I would say the most useful feature for teachers are they don't even need to be thought about or worried about they just work. Easy to set up and you learn how they work in seconds.
Avervision are good ones.Your supplier should inform you they (Avervision) will also perform demonstrations for your staff if you would like that. I would recommend the SMART ones too as they will work well with your SMART boards.

I can only see a need for visualizer in Science, Technology and Art at secondary level. I first saw a visualizer in 1999 it made sense then as it was used to get OHP stuff on to screen.
