Webcam for Interactive Panel/Whiteboard: 

We have had a number of enquiries recently from schools in relation to purchasing webcams for their interactive
screens or panels in their classrooms. 
We have recently purchased the system in the images below called the DTEN Go with Mate which integrates with
your Zoom account. 
It is an absolutely fantastic system that you simply plug into your existing panel and it turns it into a conferencing tool. 
The camera captures the whole room and the visual and audio are top class. 
It is ideal for holding an interactive session with an outside speaker as the children can speak to the person on the
screen without leaving their seat and it  picks up the sound perfectly.
It’s also an ideal tool if holding a meeting and somebody is unavoidably absent they can be zoomed in to the meeting
and it is if they are there in the room. 
If you would like further information on this please email [email protected]
