Picture this: You’re in a brainstorming session with a colleague online. You’re attempting to mark up a diagram of your company’s new product roadmap, but you’re finding it difficult to draw clearly on the whiteboard with your mouse. You grab a piece of paper and start jotting down ideas and figures… but to share it with your colleague, you hold the paper up close to the webcam. You ask, “Can you read this?” They respond, “Bring it closer. Wait, hold still!”
By now, most of us have experienced this scenario in one form another—especially folks like teachers who need to zoom in on math problems, books, or science experiments. Not easy!
Here at TPC, we’ve come up with a very *out of the box* approach to solve this issue. How? By turning your tablet or smartphone into a “document camera” that allows you to spotlight a physical object in a virtual meeting and gives you flexibility to draw with a pencil or stylus instead of your mouse.
Sounds crazy helpful, right? Check out the video below to see how simple it is to set up yourself.
