DocumentCameras.com is proud to introduce the new TT-12 document camera from ELMO. This is the highly anticipated replacement for the TT-02RX, which has been the best selling document camera in the world. The TT-12 document camera utilizes the proven successful design of the "Teacher Tool", and brings it to a higher level with a host of impressive improvements. We predict this new design will help ELMO Teacher’s Tools retain the title of the "World's Best Selling Document Camera".
First and foremost, the optics of the camera have improved dramatically. ELMO has done a few things to greatly enhance the picture and video quality. Elmo has raised the bar by offering a 3.4 mega pixel sensor as well as the ability to display 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! This improved image clarity and zoom capability will establish the image quality standard for educational document cameras. ELMO has taken the remarkable TT-02RX image quality to an unprecedented level with the new TT-12. This document camera will be one of a few that offer high definition clarity at an affordable cost. When using the HDMI connection, you are able to connect the TT-12 to a high definition projector, television or monitor for crystal clear pictures. This is the single biggest change to the Teacher Tool line. There are also many more additional features.
The TT-12 can also record full-motion video that is displayed at 30 frames per second. In laymans terms, this means you can shoot live video that will be very smooth, crystal clear and with great color reproduction. Many teachers do not realize these cameras can also record video as well as still snap shots. This is a popular feature with math teachers who record equations and science teachers who use them to film dissections. Their is a built in microphone as well so you can record audio and video simultaneously. This is a very helpful feature that allows you to save your presenations and from there the sky is the limit. You can post them on your blog, website, or facebook. You can also email the lesson to a child who missed class. It is a very nice feature that is often overlooked on some of the lower cost cameras.
Teachers and students will appreciate the ELMO 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. The unit also now has both an SD card slot and USB thumb drive slot. The USB drive is a unique feature. It not only allows you to store images directly to a thumb drive, but you can also use this slot in conjunction with the CRA-1 wireless tablet. This allows the presenter to use the CRA-1 tablet without a computer; a very impressive feature.
Another unique improvement is the multi direction camera head that rotates 270 degrees. This allows left handed teachers to fully rotate the camera head to the other side in order to make presentations more comfortably. There is also a new built in microphone which allows you to record audio as well as video presentations. There is a microphone output as well so you interface with other louder sound systems if needed. We are quite impressed with these new improvements and thoughtful upgrades to this camera and recommend this camera be seriously considered.

One neat feature on this camera is the built in "VGA active pass through." This is a feature normally found on higher priced cameras. This allows you to connect both the TT-02RX and your computer directly to your projector and only use one VGA input. Not all projectors have multiple inputs so this is very convenient. You’ll run the VGA cable from you computer to to the Elmo and then another cable from the Elmo to the projector. You can display the image from the Elmo right on the projector, and when you want to display your computer, you just push a button and the computer’s video "passes through" the Elmo to the projector.

Q & A
Why choose ELMO brand cameras when you can get cheaper units? The answer is quality and quite simply image clarity! This is our top selling camera line out of all the camera manufacturers we represent. It has a great list of features specifically designed for the educational customer. With input from teachers, ELMO has redesigned its latest generation Teacher Tool to be more user-friendly with improvements in image clarity, control panel and software. Overall this latest edition camera has raised the bar with its fair price and performance level. Although you can indeed find cameras for less money, the quality of ELMO products ranks among the best in the electronics world. They take extra measure so ensure you get a high quality camera that will last many years with their full 5 year warranty. One example of this quality is found in the lens. They use their own glass lenses that they grind in their own factory. They do not use cheaper plastic like many other brands, nor do they buy lenses from a 3rd party like many manufactures do. Everything is done “in house.” Each lens is painstakingly tested, one by one, to ensure that they are flawless and the image is crystal clear. This is just one aspect of their commitment to making the world’s best document cameras. We don’t know of any other document camera company that puts this amount of effort into producing a phenomenal camera at a fair price. People often ask, how does DocumentCameras.com know so much about these cameras and what goes into making and designing them? As an award winning Platinum Dealer, we have actually toured the facility in Nagoya Japan. To say it is an impressive operation it an understatement!
