Clarity and Detail in Brilliant 8 MegaPixel Resolution
The HoverCam Solo 8’s advanced sensor delivers uncompressed YUV video with 4K clarity, giving you 4x as many pixels than the resolution of a 1080p HDTV. This ultimately means there is no image quality loss. Experience every image 4x crisper, sharper and clearer, than any other high priced document camera. Save in .jpeg, multi-paged .pdf, .png, .tiff and others. With Solo 8 the finest details come to life.

Stunning 30fps Full Motion Video
The HoverCam Solo 8 utilizes a new generation of imaging technology called Photon 1.0. This key technology gives the world, for the first time ever, a document camera that delivers 4K resolution and full motion frame rate at the same time. This is an unprecedented achievement in USB camera technology. All new generation HoverCams will be equipped with this amazing proprietary technology, allowing you to truly create captivating lag-free video.

Annotate Over Live Video
HoverCam FlexVIEW comes with a rich set of annotation tools that are often only found in Interactive Whiteboard software. We've also gone beyond annotation over still images, and enabled annotation over live video. This allows you to illustrate points better, to present more clearly and to make your classroom more interactive.

Zoom Re-invented
Our Photon 1.0 imaging engine uses Adaptive Sensor Resolution (ASR) technology that adapts to your screen size and gives you all 8 million uncompressed pixels at a 4x magnification. This is equivalent to optical zoom, withou bulkiness and high cost.

Compact & Versatile
Our advanced electronics are paired with meticulous craftsmanship and well thought out design. Five pivot points
allow the camera to be pointed in any direction, raised to shoot large areas, lowered for close-ups and folded for compactness. A swivel lens allows for 90° rotation for image orientation.

No External Power Adapter Needed
A single USB 3.0 cable is the only thing needed to power the Solo 8. This gives you the convenience of plug-and-play simplicity. The Solo 8 uses less than 5 volts, which is within the maximum power of USB 2.0 and only half the power of USB 3.0.

Scan from A3 to Business Cards
The HoverCam Solo 8 can be fully extended and raised to cover an 28 x 43cm (A3) area. Use this functionality to scan multiple pages into one PDF file. It can also be lowered to scan smaller items like business cards.

Advanced Camera Controls
The HoverCam Solo 8 is the first USB document camera that offers advanced camera controls normally found in expensive digital SLR cameras. Through our FLEXVIEW software, easily utilize autofocus, select-focus, auto exposure and auto white balance functionalities.

SlingShot into Favorite Programs
Easily transfer any files created with the Solo 8 into your favorite programs. Just drag-and-drop or click the SlingShot button in FLEXVIEW to instantly drop your images or videos into Word, PowerPoint, Interactive Whiteboard Software, Evernote and more.

Half the Price of Other Brands
We deliver higher performance than our competitors at half the price because we employed smart solutions that replaced expensive optical components with electronic technology and leveraged the full intelligence of computers. The result is lower cost, high performance and better user interface.
