Hovercam Introduces Next Generation Document Cameras(March 20, 2017)
San Diego, CA, March 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Last week at the Computer Using Educators (CUE) National Conference in Palm Springs, California, HoverCam set the Educational Technology world abuzz with the announcement of its Pilot digital podium, the CenterStage interactive flat panel display, and the real-time lesson recording service, KnoteSter. As you saw at CUE, Hovercam also unveiled a series of additions to its line of digital document camera products.
First up is the debut of HoverCam’s latest addition, the Nillo 100, the world’s first Android-powered, high-performance digital document camera.
The Nillo 100 runs on one of the industry’s most advanced mobile processors enabling the full benefit of a built-in computer running Android 5.1.1 giving the user a PC or Mac, like user interface without the need of tethering it to a PC or Mac. Its integrated 13-MegaPixel document camera delivers live or recorded, uncompressed 1080P video streams at 60 Frames Per Second (FPS). Users can also annotate with a mouse directly on the Nillo's live image and take advantage of features like wireless iPad and tablet connection.
HoverCam is also thrilled to announce the next step in its Solo 8 series, the Solo 8Plus.
The Solo 8Plus is the world’s first digital document camera to be compatible with iOS devices and features a Lightning interface. The Solo 8Plus continues the Solo 8’s ground-breaking USB 3.0 performance and now features a 13-MegaPixel, auto-focus camera for 4K video resolution with full motion.
The camera’s adaptive sensor resolution (ASR) technology lets the user zoom without degradation. The document camera’s video capabilities can preview or record video at 30 FPS. It's also the first 4K full motion camera with 120-FPS warp speed recording, allowing for slow-motion viewing. The Solo 8Plus works with HoverCam’s popular camera view software to enable seamless lesson recording, time lapse video capturing, and scanning.
HoverCam also debuts their Clipper iPad Adapter, the first Lightning port connector with MFi certification for a document camera.
The battery-powered iOS adapter allows educators to plug the Solo 8Plus into their iPads and turn it into a wireless document camera. Teachers can wirelessly stream their students’ work through AirPlay onto a projector or large HDTV panel.
"We’ve never been shy about innovation,” said Ji Shen, HoverCam CEO. “With these new products, we hope to bring smart mobile technologies to the classroom to benefit teachers and students. The current landscape of document cameras will never be the same.”
