▶ Background

The California State University (CSU) plays a critical role in providing future leaders with the skills and knowledge they’ll need to thrive in the workforce and help drive California’s economy. With more than 132,000 annual graduates, the CSU is the state’s greatest producer of bachelor’s degrees and drives California's economy in agriculture, information technology, business, hospitality, life sciences, healthcare, public administration, education, media, and entertainment.


▶ Customer Requirements 

When it comes time to upgrade our classrooms, we look for functional pieces of equipment to provide support for the room's use case and improve the end user experience. Many rooms had requests from faculty for document cameras but could not implement normal ones that sat on top of the desks due to space and other factors. We reached out to one of our AV contractors and they recommended us to Lumens. At the time, the Lumens CL510 was one of the very few options for ceiling mounted document cameras and to do it well. We purchased a few and installed them in our new science building. Installation was fast and easy and tied into our existing AV system without much fuss. Since then (almost 4 years now), no issues have been reported and we have continued to use them for rooms that fit its use case.

▶ Customer Feedback


"Lumens CL510 paired with the CL-A01 Ceiling Mount Bridge accessory kit were the best option for many of our spaces that required nonobtrusive document cameras. They provide an adequate image quality with great reliability. They have excellent control and response when used with our current AV systems and implemented seamlessly without much installation experience being required. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the newest model."
