Easily engage students with the high performance DC-12 document camera

Bright images with remarkable detail
The DC-12 features a large, highly efficient imaging sensor that captures more light per pixel. As a result, you get bright images with amazing quality and detail.

Bright images with remarkable detail

Picture-in-picture zoom feature
When the digital zoom is used, a large window shows the featured section, while a smaller window keeps perspective on the original image. So, the intent of the lesson remains clear.

16x digital zoom

Easy setup for a perfect image every time
The DC-12 automatically detects the native aspect ratio of Epson projectors and selects the correct output resolution to match. It is capable of displaying 1080p, 720p, SXGA, WXGA and XGA resolutions.

Auto-Select Output Resolution (SXGA, WXGA, XGA) for easy setup and operation
