The Educam is an extremely versatile micro light video camera with a very wide range
of applications. The focusing lens has a variable focal length from 1/4 inch to infinity.
This allows small objects to be viewed in close up as well as through the microscope.
Additionally the unit which is mounted on a flexi arm can be used as a conventional
video camera for general views. A very flexible system for those not requiring high
This degree of flexibility makes the EDUCAM the ideal educational tool, both for
schools and home use. The unit comes complete with a simple compound and stereomicroscope
adapter which allows the camera to look down the eyepiece of any of the microscopes
in our range - even the cheapest.
Cabling is very simple and the image can be taken directly to a TV monitor, video
recorder or television. The video output of the educam is analogue which needs to
be converted to digital for computer imaging. This can be achieved by either an internal
computer PCI card or an external USB connecting converter. The Hauppage and Eurosys
cards are recommended and work extremely well with the Educam.
