    • Compact & Portable

      HoverCam Mini 5 document camera fits in your pocket, purse or computer bag and weighs less than 6 oz. Use it on the go or in the office. Its footprint takes up very little space on your desktop and it's always available when you need it to scan, record a video or better explain a concept over the Internet. Not only is it much smaller than a traditional document camera or flatbed scanner, its powerful software allows you to do so much more.
    • Autofocusing Convenience with Autofocus Lock

      Mini 5 is designed with a tiny autofocusing CMOS sensor and lens module. From any angle or distance your images become instantly clear. With autofocus and autofocus lock, your images are always clear, even when showing the screen of a smartphone or tablet.
    • 5MP Resolution for Scanning & Clear Presentations

      The HoverCam Mini 5 document camera incorporates a 5 megapixel resolution sensor sharp enough to use as a general scanner and to provide crisp, clear images easily viewed by your audience when using it for live presentations of documents, 3D objects or showing images of your tablet or phone. Use it as a high-resolution webcam with Skype, GoToMeeting, WebEx, Zoom and other online conferencing programs.
    • One Second Scanning & Fast Refresh Rate

      Unlike traditional flatbed scanners, the HoverCam Mini document camera scans in less than a second. Furthermore, Mini 5 sets a new standard in fast refresh rates for a live 5 MP USB document camera with video speeds of 20 frames per second when set at HD 720p resolution and 15 frames per second when set at 5 MP resolution. This allows for a very clear and smooth image when using the Mini 5 for live presentations or training.
    • Use with Laptop or Desktop

      Mini 5 is easy to use on the go. Simply plug it directly into a USB port of your laptop or ultrabook, no cable required. For even greater flexibility when making a presentation or to connect to a desktop, use the Mini's case as a stand and connect a USB cable from the case to your computer. Not just a protective carrying case, the Mini's case converts into a docking station.
    • Scan Business Cards, Scan Anything

      The HoverCam Mini document camera includes HoverCam Contact™ software that functions as a digital Rolodex® allowing your to capture, store, review and manage all of your contacts. Scan your business cards. Export your contacts to Outlook. Unlike a traditional scanner, you can scan anything with the HoverCam, including solid objects.
