The HoverCam range of visualisers, the Solo 8 and Ultra 8, are state of the art document cameras that are also multifunctional visualisers, unlike Elmo, Avervision, Genee and Epson visualisers. With Scanning, full HD video at 30 frames per second, and 8 megapixel sensors, both the Ultra 8 and Solo 8 document cameras surpass the likes of Lumens Document cameras due to exceptional software and award winning features. Solo 8 connects via USB while the Ultra 8 can also connect via HDMI and VGA.

Using Splashtop software with a HoverCam Visualiser

The HoverCam  – Splashtop Classroom Bundle allows teachers to view and control their desktop, applications and the live HoverCam image on their tablet from anywhere in the classroom.
 
Teachers can share their desktop screen and HoverCam image with three 3 devices for the 3 user bundle package or up to 40 students’ devices - including Chromebooks and iPads – allowing them to view and control the lesson content directly from their desk with the 40 user package.
 
Splashtop Classroom and the HoverCam range are perfect for teachers and instructors who want to engage and interact with every student in the entire room, wirelessly!

View and Control from anywhere

Teach from all four corners by:
 
  • Untethering yourself from the front of the class by wirelessly connecting your tablet to your computer to view and control anything as if you were right in front of your computer.
 
  • Accessing the HoverCam image and your existing applications directly from your tablet – no need to relearn or ‘buy an app for that’. Use what you already know and have paid for – even your Smart Notebook lessons and tools!

Annotate Over Content

Turn your tablet into an IWB by:
 
  • Drawing over any content – including live video and the HoverCam image
  • Taking snapshots of the screen, then save and share them with students
  • Drawing over blank, ruled or graph backgrounds – or include your favorite worksheets
  • Using the spotlight and screen shade tools to keep students focused

Share Lessons with Students

Boost student engagement by:
 
  • Displaying Your HoverCam image on students’ devices1
 
  • Passing control to let individual or groups of students interact with your HoverCam image and other content without leaving their seats
 
  • Capturing students ideas easily using the whiteboard tools2

How It Works
 
Install the Splashtop Classroom software onto your PC or Mac (after the usual HoverCam FlexView and FlexCap installation)
 
Install the Splashtop app onto yours and your student devices (download the Splashtop Classroom app for your devices from the relevant app store)
 
Launch the Splashtop app and connect to your PC/Mac to view and control your desktop
 
Your computer desktop and HoverCam image will be displayed on your tablet.
 
You are now untethered and completely mobile in the classroom with full control over the computer’s desktop and the HoverCam image on your tablet.
 
With your tablet, you can annotate, zoom in, zoom out, record, explain and interact with students.
 
Optionally share your desktop with your students by starting a sharing session – students join by either snapping the QR code or entering the session code
 
Students are initially in view-only mode – to pass control, choose the student from the teacher session manager panel Use Splashtop’s “Mirroring 360” to display the image from your tablet to the projector or large screen display without any additional hardware.
