Clarity and Detail in Brilliant 8 MegaPixel Resolution
The advanced BSI sensor used in Solo 8 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 4 times crisper, sharper and clearer, than any other high priced document camera. With Solo 8 the finest details come to life.
The New Solo 8 is Possibly the BEST document camera EVER built!
HoverCam has been dedicated to bringing you the very best in document camera technology at the lowest price. Advancements from the clear and simple T3, to the versitility of the Solo 5, to miniturizing to the Mini 5, the quality and technology behind HoverCam just keeps getting better. The Solo 8 is a perfect example of this.
Stunning 30fps Full Motion Video
Solo 8 utilizes a new generation of imaging technology called Photon 1.0. For the first time ever, the world will get a document camera that delivers 4x 1080p resolution at 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.
World's First USB 3.0 Document Camera
Based on years of research and development, the Photon 1.0 imaging engine brings you the best image and color, the highest resolution and frame rate and all the image processing capability over SuperSpeed USB 3.0. There is no driver to install on Windows or Mac. Over USB 2.0, the Solo 8 will still give you 30fps full motion video with minimal level of compression.
Record Hundreds of Hours of Video
Unlike other stand-alone document cameras, capturing video is not limited to the size of SD cards or on-board storage. Instead of just a few hours of footage, easily record 200 hours in 720p (under 200GB), which can fit onto most hard drives. Quickly transfer straight from the PC to YouTube or other cloud sharing services.
Annotate Over Live Video
HoverCam FLEX 10 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.
Archive and Organize
FLEX 10 gives you the convenience of a full-featured archive manager. Instantly know where your images and videos are stored. Effortlessly search, tag, group, stack, combine and collate files. Create multiple paged PDF or TIFF files or create various folders to keep class documents and student files organized.
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, without the bulkiness and high cost. Add to that 10X mechanical zoom and software enhanced 8X interpolated zoom for a total zoom capability of 320X.
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-degree 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 Card Size
The Solo 8 can be fully extended and raised to cover an 11"x17" (A3) area. It can also be lowered to scan smaller items like business cards or driver's licenses. Use Solo 8 as a scanner to scan multiple pages into one PDF file.
Capture Vibrant Still Photos
Capture photos in clear 8 MegaPixel resolution (while still storing each image under 1MB). Capture multiple images based on time intervals or motion triggered shutter. Save in .jpeg, multi-paged .pdf, .png, .tiff and others.
Advanced Camera Controls
Solo 8 is the first USB document camera that offers advanced camera controls normally found in expensive digital SLR cameras. Through our FLEX 10 software, easily utilize autofocus, select-focus, manual exposure, select exposure and auto white balance functionalities.
