For locations that are not equipped with fixed multimedia systems, a multimedia cart can duplicate those capabilities, and even connect to Eastern’s network. These carts contain a PC, a DVD/VCR combination unit, and a sound amplification system that is connected to an data projector that can switch between the sources.
Portable data projectors are available to Eastern faculty and staff by reservation for the display of Power Point presentations and video sources.
Our lightweight and user friendly Da-Lite Projection screens come in 3 different sizes:
60″ Diagonal, 80″ Diagonal, and 100″ Diagonal for larger rooms.
A document camera is used to present hard copy documents, graphics, and small objects to a large audience. All multimedia classrooms are equipped with document cameras. A data projector is required to view the images from a document camera. Media Services does not provide document cameras out for loan.
Digital Still Camera
These point and shoot digital still cameras store digital images on a memory card. The images can be quickly transferred to a computer or portable device via the USB cable included in the bag.
