    Key Features

    • True 5.0 MegaPixel Resolution

      The HoverCam Solo 5x document camera delivers more than 2x the resolution of HD TV (1080p) for clear images. It offers a range of resolutions from 2592x1944 and refresh rates of up to 15 fps.
    • Autofocusing Convenience with Autofocus Lock

      Solo 5x incorporates a tiny autofocusing CMOS sensor and lens module. From any angle or distance, your images become instantly clear. Use Autofocus Lock to lock the focus. With autofocus and AF Lock, the Solo 5x provides clear images.
    • Fast Refresh Rate

      Solo 5x’s onboard image processing chip delivers MJPEG compressed video to PCs or Macs at the fastest speed of any 5-megapixel USB document camera. It displays full 5MP resolution without cropping at 15 frames per second (fps). This reduces blurriness so that presentations and training are clear without distraction.
    • Zoom From A3 to a Quarter

      Position the HoverCam Solo 5x document camera head from 17.7” to 1.4” above the surface to achieve 12x mechanical zoom. Combined with the 16x digital zoom, the Solo 5x has an amazing 192x effective magnification. This zoom ability allows you to see the tiny details on a quarter or $20 bill, which are virtually undetectable to the human eye. When zoomed out, you can display and scan up to A3 size, i.e., two U.S. letter-sized pages side by side.
    • HoverCam Contact Software

      The HoverCam Solo 5x document camera for business includes HoverCam Contact™ software which functions as a digital Rolodex® allowing you to capture, store, review and manage business cards and your contacts.
