Meet the SimplicityCam:
Can shoot documents up to 15" x 20"
A larger shooting size means more options and more opportunities to share. Share large format documents, demonstrate under the camera with ease and say goodbye to those return trips to the camera to move a document or book so that the rest of the page is visible. With Recordex’s large shooting area you can fit it all at once.
Can shoot video at 30 frames per second
Faster frame rates mean smoother more natural looking video. Fast frame rates are crucial when demonstrating under the camera and when creating your own video content.
Can shoot images at 7,990,727 pixels
Exquisite detail and high quality zoom are the rewards for choosing a high resolution document camera. The 8MP* CMOS imaging sensor in SimplicityCam delivers beautiful pictures and fast frame rates.
Heavy solid steel base to prevent tipping
In a classroom things get bumped. You won’t need to worry about your SimplicityCam tipping over. It is designed to stay standing and in the event of a fall it is also designed to handle everyday bumps and bruises.
and increase stability
Rugged pivot hinges give you long-lasting flexibility
The SimplicityCam has extremely rugged steel reinforced hinges at the base of the neck and the base of the camera head. These hinges will give you long-lasting flexibility over the life of the camera.
Light where you need it. When you need it.
Whether you are in a dimly lit room or a bright room. Whether you have the camera positioned down close or up high. The SimplicityCam has exactly the light you need for the occasion with its 5-mode adjustable LED. Arm lights can be set off, low, medium or high. Head light can be set on or off.
Simple controls. Simple setup.
The SimplicityCam sets up with just one cable and no drivers to install and there are just four buttons to master.
When you’re done. Just fold it up.
We recommend leaving the camera out where you’ll be able to get to it quickly the next time you need it. Our small footprint and fold-to-store design makes that possible.

5-year replacement warranty

You spoke. We listened.
Before we designed XSight we listened. We listened to teachers. We listened to administrators. We listened to support staff. We kept hearing the same message. Keep it clean. Keep it simple. Keep it focused on classroom instruction. We did just that.
Draw. Zoom. Pan.
Recordex pioneered zoomable annotation in the classroom. Recordex saw what was needed was the ability to mark up live images and then zoom in with the annotation staying locked to the image. This would make writer’s workshop and other classroom activities more powerful than ever. Recordex call this feature AnnoZoom and it is often cited as the most appreciated feature of our software.
Share easily between apps.
With Recordex’s drag and drop ImageShare feature it is easier than ever to get images from your document camera into your whiteboard application, or just about any other application running on your computer. Drag the image and its annotations from XSight directly into the other application.
In the classroom most software isn’t controlled by a mouse anymore. However, most software is still designed around old menu based navigation. XSight employs touch, pen and whiteboard friendly navigation with right sized and easy to click icons. No more hunting for tools in hidden menus. Just simple, clean navigation.
Record with a click.
With your SimplicityCam and its built in microphone you are just a click or two away from recording your own content using XSight. Click record, select your video size and start recording. It’s that simple.
Flip it. For free!
Flipping the classroom through use of video is one of the hottest trends in instruction today. Recordex love the idea, and think that the folks over at Screencast-O-Matic are doing an incredible job developing affordable tools for screencasting. Recordex like their solution so much they made it super easy to launch S-O-M while using XSight. Just click the S-O-M button.
Stay in front of them with picture-in-picture.
It has been noticed that students are more likely to pay attention to a recorded video if the teachers face is present in the recording. Enter Picture-in-Picture recording. With PiP you embed your webcam into the document camera image and take snapshots or record video with both the document camera and your PiP camera captured. It is perfect for creating flipped video content.
