Product Information

Touchboards.com is proud to introduce the New TT-12 Document Camera from ELMO. How do you make the TT-02RX, the "World's Best Selling Document Camera," even better? The answer is easy. You update and add features that will bury the competition. The TT-12 document camera utilizes the proven successful design of the "Teacher Tool" family, and brings it to an even higher level with a host of impressive upgrades. We predict the new TT-12 will reinforce the title earned by its predecessor, the TT-02RX, as the "World's Best Selling Document Camera". This is not the top selling camera in a certain class or a certain resolution. This is the undisputed best selling camera in the world! Please see the demo video on this page for a live demo of this powerful new camera.

With such a rapid growth in technology, Elmo has undoubtedly noticed that no self respecting document camera manufacturer would even think of using a 1.3 mega pixel camera in their most popular school camera. With this realization, ELMO has incorporated some unique features that enhance the picture and video quality of the new TT-12. Elmo has raised the bar by offering a 3.4 mega pixel image sensor. This gives the user the ability to display an image in true "high definition" (both 720P and 1080P). This camera now boasts a 12X optical zoom and 8X digital zoom for a total 96X zoom! WOW! This improved image clarity and zoom capability will establish the standard for educational document cameras in the marketplace. It is obvious that the new TT-12 offers serious users, who are concerned about video quality and desire high definition, a perfect product solution at a competitive price.

There are many new features the TT-12 has to offer. One is the direct "pass-through" HDMI port that enables the user to connect the TT-12 directly to a HD projector. This means no loss of image quality for true to life, crystal clear images. This camera also includes a built in "VGA active pass through." This feature is normally found on higher priced cameras. This allows you to connect both the TT-12 and your computer directly to your projector, and utilize only use one VGA input. This is extremely important and convenient since all projectors do not have multiple inputs. This is done by running the VGA cable from your computer to the TT-12 and then another cable from the TT-12 to the projector. You can then display the image from the document camera directly on the projector. When you want to display your computer, you simply push a button on the TT-12 and the computer's video "passes through" the TT-12 to the projector.

Also new to the TT-12 is the ability to record "full motion video" in HD. This is processed at an ultra smooth 30 frames per second. In addition, the built in microphone gives you the option to record audio and video simultaneously. This exciting new capability allows you to save and send your presentations. This ensures your audience the chance to relive the experience without missing a "beat". If your audience is "virtual", this document camera will leave them feeling as if they were actually at the recording session. If you are an educator, you can email the lesson to a child who has missed class. If you are using this for blogs, websites, or social media sites (like Facebook), the TT-12 will take your posts to the next level.

In the classroom, teachers and students will appreciate the flexibility in the storage options. The TT-12's use of internal SD/SDHC/USB memory to capture images and record video, without the need for a computer or external storage device, gives this document camera an unprecedented advantage over its (ELMO's) competitors. The unit also has both an SD card slot and USB thumb drive slot. The USB drive contains a unique feature. It not only allows you to store images directly to a thumb drive, but is also useable with the CRA-1 wireless tablet. This allows the presenter to use the CRA-1 tablet without a computer; freeing the user to interact with the audience.

Additionally, note some of the unique improvements to the camera's head. The TT-12 now features an improved multi directional camera head that rotates a wide 270 degrees. This allows left handed teachers to fully rotate the camera head to the other side in order to make presentations more comfortable. We are quite impressed with these new improvements and thoughtful upgrades and recommend this camera be seriously considered. We are certain that the torch will be passed from the TT-02RX to the new TT-12 as the "World's Best Selling Document Camera."
