Hardware

Digital Stills Camera
This item takes digital pictures.
Interactive Display
This item mirrors what is displayed on the user's computer screen but can be manipulated with a stylus and saved for later viewing.
Interactive Whiteboard
The interactive whiteboard uses touch detection for user input – e.g. scrolling, right mouse-click – in the same way normal PC input devices, such as a mouse or keyboard, detect input. A projector is used to display a computer's video output on the interactive whiteboard, which then acts as a large touch screen. The interactive whiteboard typically comes with four pens, which use digital ink and replace traditional whiteboard markers.
LCD Projector (high definition)
This item projects high resolution widescreen stills and motion video from the user's laptop computer and media player.
Tablet [iPad / Galaxy Tab]
Tablet computers are used primarily as a platform for audio-visual media including books, periodicals, movies, music, games, apps and web content. A tablet's size and weight fall between those of contemporary smartphones and laptop computers. The tablet is controlled by a multi-touch display and has a virtual onscreen keyboard. The tablet accesses the internet through WiFi and can easily be connected to a TV using S-VGA or HDMI using corresponding adaptor.

Verizon has donating a number of Android tablets to NMU. The 20 Samsung Galaxy 2 tablets are available for departments and faculty to check out from the IDT office (LRC 112). The tablets are to be used for educational use, and documentation of the projects for which they are used is required as part of this program. Review these NMU Tablet Check-Out Guidelines for details.
Visual Presenter / Document Camera
Very similar to a document camera, this camera captures high definition quality still and motion video digitally. Great for displaying 3D objects. Comes with SD memory card.
Webcam
This equipment connects to your computer and allows you to capture digitally pictures and motion video. Some webcams have built-in microphones.
Writing Tablet
