Distance Learning & Remote Conferencing
The HoverCam image appears in a window on your computer screen, which means high resolution images of documents and objects can easily be viewed during distance learning sessions with Skype, GoToMeeting, Zoom, WebEx and other web conferencing programs in “screen sharing” mode or selecting the HoverCam as the video camera. The HoverCam delivers HD quality and 30 frames/sec full-motion video over USB. The HoverCam provides sharper, clearer images in distance learning sessions than a typical low-res webcam. A great tool for virtual field trips.
Engineering Masterpiece
The HoverCam is designed to leverage the processing power of the computer to zoom and control most functions, so it doesn’t incorporate the bulky and expensive optical parts found in traditional visualisers. The Solo 8 has reinvented zoom, so a teacher can zoom in on the finest details without any loss of clarity. The result is a patented, new form factor that’s compact, portable, durable and affordable. In summary, the HoverCam does more and costs schools less.
