Hovercam Solo 8 Plus
Discover the Hovercam Solo 8 Plus – the big brother of the Solo Spark. The Solo 8 Plus features 4k resolution and a massive 480x zoom – perfect for visualizing science experiments to the whole class. Like the Solo Spark, it is a document camera that allows teachers to film an area on their desk , working just like an overhead projector. However the Hovercam acts as a webcam, meaning that you can project this into a live video stream.
With integrated microphone and a fantastic software suit included, conducting and recording teacher-led instruction has never been easier. You can even use your existing webcam to deliver Picture in Picture sessions, where your students can see you and the work area at the same time. Ideal for younger learners. The Hovercam can also act as a traditional HD webcam, as the camera can be adjusted and the head angled however required.

The crystal-clear image is lag and blur-free; as are any videos recorded through the device. You can video for hours…. the only constraint is the size of your computer’s hard disk. You can record video at Ultra HD or Full HD 1080P, and take still images in detailed, true 13-megapixel resolution. Zoom in up to 480 times using the patented ASR Zoom technology, so zoomed-in images are sharper and more detailed than ever before.
You can also take photos (snapshots) using the device – from an A3 document to a business card (or even a microscope slide). These can be annotated if required, and all images and videos are managed by the archive manager. You can also crop images, or use OCR for text recognition. You can even use Slingshot to drag the live image into Word, PowerPoint or your Interactive Whiteboard software.
The HoverCam will integrate into all Interactive Whiteboard software applications (e.g. Smart notebook), with the camera being recognised by the software as an input.
The powerful HoverCam software can be freely downloaded and installed throughout a school or department, meaning that if required, the camera can easily become a shared device.
The Windows software, Flex 11, is incredibly capable, offering live annotation over the live image; as well as the ability to take photos and video footage easily. Slow motion and time-lapse videos are great additional features, as is the ability to adjust the image for brightness, exposure and focussing.
The HoverCam Solo 8 Plus works seamlessly with live camera software such as Skype – where it’s built in microphone, and simple to position camera head make it easy to present either yourself, or a document you’re working on, during the live chat.
