Turn your iPhone or iPod Touch into a wireless HD document camera in 3 easy steps:
STEP 1: Launch Air Scanner.
STEP 2: Type in the displayed URL in the web browser.
STEP 3: Whatever you point the camera at appears in the browser.
Easily present hard-copy materials from books, magazines, or physical objects as part of your lectures or meetings. Great for show and tell.
Air Scanner continuously takes photos with your device's camera and projects them to a web browser running on the same WiFi network, at 720P HD (1080P on iPhone 5 and newer generation devices) - allowing full page text and color photographs to come out crisp and clear.
Just fire up Air Scanner and type in the displayed URL in your web browser. The image will automatically update at up to 3-5 times per second (faster on newer devices). A dedicated or ad-hoc network is recommended for optimal performance. No special hardware or additional client software is required. PC, Mac, and Linux are all supported.
You don't need an expensive unitasker document camera anymore.
Air Scanner works wonderfully with a DIY camera stand, which you can make in a few minutes, or you can order a handmade one from various 3rd party sites (see our website for details and links).
What's New in Version 1.1
Updated with a shiny new icon.
64-bit support, and 1080p HD image projection on newer devices.
Really works, surprisingly
Basically, your iOS devices becomes a server, and the page it serves has a constantly refreshing JPG from the camera, about 1 per second. Your browser, on the same network, goes to the iOS devices local IP:Port and starts displaying the JPG feed. It's a bit odd the it's a refreshing JPG instead of a video stream, and it's a little annoying that the image isn't made to fit in the browser viewport using vw/vh units or some other method.
But, it really does work without any app on the other end to receive the images, just a browser window.
Works wonderfully, but...
The only thing keeping me from giving this a 5 star review (really, it works THAT WELL with minimal lag) is the fact that you have to be on the same WiFi network. For most, this wouldn't be a big deal, but in my school district environment, we have a separate network for our student iPads, and teacher desktops are on LAN, not WAN, rendering this unusable for the purpose I REALLY want to use it for. When/If this gets added, I'll happily share this app with 1000's of my teachers.
This app does exactly what it says it's going to do. No hassle and no setup. You open it, type in the IP address if gives you on your browser, and you see your camera input right there on the computer. This could work very nicely as a closed-circuit camera if you have a spare iPhone.
