Top 6 Ways the WeldWatch® HD Video Camera System Enhances Welding Instruction
Discover the top six ways you can enhance the welding education experience at your school or facility with the WeldWatch® HD Video Camera System.
Video playback is a proven method used for a wide spectrum of training from beginner golfers to professional athletes. When it comes to welding, instructors often complain about giving demos that only a few students up-front can see. The WeldWatch® HD Video Camera System addresses this painpoint head on. With recent restriction and requirements, now more than ever a welding instructor needs to adapt to digital recording and playback for the shift to online education that is happening today.
With big screen demos and built-in digital recording, demos can be shown time and again to students. The on-screen playback can also free the instructor to narrate and engage the students instead of being hidden under a helmet.
WeldWatch® HD Video Camera System enhances welding instruction. Here are the top 6 reasons why your school or facility would benefit from integrating the WeldWatch Camera System as a teaching tool:
- Ease of Setup
- Ready to use in the welding classroom with minimal setup.
- Swing arm components attach easily attach to most welding/work benches.
- Complete System: Camera, swing arm mounts and touch-screen.
- The included touch-screen PC comes loaded with the Visible Welding software.
- Just turn it on and the camera video is on-screen.
- Ease of Use
- Quickly get the perfect camera angle.
- Flexible articulated arm allows quick camera placement anywhere above theweld table.
- Built-in Optical Zoom allows for having the camera out of the way
- Automation allows the instructor to instruct: Auto Focus, Exposure and Record
- Automatic recording trigged by arc
- Records standard AVI video files and high-quality stills
- Playback videos at normal speed or slow motion.
- WeldWatch software has large, well-labeled, welder-friendly buttons.
- Powerful Camera Technology
- See the torch tip, leading/trailing edges of the weld pool, feed wire and base metals during the weld.
- An industry highest dynamic range allows captures the super-bright light of welding
- Single-frame dynamic range of 140 dB (10,000,000:1)
- Inter-frame dynamic range of 180 dB (1,000,000,000:1).
- The quality of our recorded videos speaks for itself
- Classroom Weld Demonstrations
- Live welding can be put on a large display for an entire class, not just a few in the front row.
- This frees instructors from repeated demos to give everyone a view so instructors can do more 1-on-1 work with students.
- Students can view a live weld on-screen from a safe area without cumbersome helmets or face shield.
- With demos recorded, students can review the demo if they need refreshing.
- “One on One” Weld Tutoring
- The weld instructor can watch the student’s weld onscreen as the welding is taking place.
- While watching the weld, the instructor gives timely feedback (e.g. “slow down” or “your arc is getting long”).
- After the weld, instructor and student review the recorded weld video together.
- With a clear idea of areas to improve, the student can go back to their weld booth to practice – with a goal.
- Collective, Shared Learning
- Video files created can be saved building a library of demos (proper welds as well as common errors).
- Share amongst the welding community any recorded videos or pictures are easily saved and shared with colleagues in and out of the classroom.
- Unique opportunities to gain insight from other instructors.
