Compact, Affordable Document Camera
HoverCam Solo Spark
The HoverCam Solo SPARK is a great, compact, and very affordable, Full HD A3 document camera. It offers stunning 8MP clarity, with features of much more expensive cameras like an adjustable camera head, LED light with an on/off switch, manual and auto focus, auto focus lock, digital zoom, and the ability to record snapshots and video, including slow motion and time-lapse video footage
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 HoverCam Solo SPARK connects to your computer through USB (USB 2.0 cable is included) and it runs through HoverCam’s Flex software. This gives you the ability to capture images and video, adjust resolution, annotate, and control the camera from your interactive whiteboard. Compact and Versatile The camera has a very small footprint on your desk, and is very versatile, able to be positioned exactly where you want it to, using the 5 pivot points on the camera. It can even be positioned to look down a microscope (Adaptors available to purchase separately). It connects to your computer via USB, and does not need a separate mains cable, meaning it is very portable.
Image Resolution & Quality
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 Full HD 1080P, and take still images in true 8-megapixel resolution.
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
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.
Software is also available for both Chromebooks and MAC, and is being developed all of the time to add features.
The HoverCam Solo SPARK 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.
SMART Document Camera makes it easy to add hands-on excitement to SMART Notebook® lessons.
