I now have two document cameras in the room, including an Elmo, so it has been a while, but I primarily used it for demonstrations. So, if I was going to demonstrate a science experiment, I would film it first and then plug it in to the television. When you plug in the cords, you'll hear it beep. Just hit the play button and it will show your recording full screen with audio. This is especially useful if you have students that are absent that day. It also avoids the, "I can't see it," complaints students will say when completing a demonstration.
Hope that helps!
