Overhead cameras are fabulous

The room we’re in in the Hollings Library at South Carolina has a WolfVision digital overhead. Dr. Graham has been using it to show manuscripts from the USC collection on the big monitor, so we can all see them.

We have a similar set-up in the Vitale II Media Lab at the Kislak Center – a WolfVision camera installed in the ceiling of the lab. We also use this to display manuscripts on large monitors, and it’s also set up with USB export so we can share the display through Skype or Google Hangout. It’s pretty wonderful.
