Explanation:
A 'piece to camera' is the bit you see on the evening news on TV when a journalist presents his story, i.e. the visible part of the work of a broadcast journalist.

de studenten kunnen een korte tekst presenteren voor de camera of voor de microfoon. Ze oefenen die presentaties geregeld tijdens de interview- en mediatraining en in de workshops."

agree  Pierre Drion: It's indeed the part, when the reporter looks towards the camera and tells all about the story: it usually means that they don't have much footage or he/she just likes to be seen! I don't know if it's an Aus term, but we certainly use it here.

  -> Thanks, Pierre. It's certainly also used in the UK, so perhaps its "Commonwealth English"...
