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.

Straighten in the Software

If your document is not level under the camera, straighten in the software. The HoverCam Anchoring Bumper uses pattern recognition to automatically straighten.

Crop to Capture Only What You Need

Zoom, pan and crop the image to the part that you want to capture.

Rotate the Image 360 Degrees

Rotate the image 360 degrees in 90 degree intervals, both clockwise and counter-clockwise.

Spin the mouse wheel to use the HoverCam's patented "Smooth Zoom" technology. There is no faster or easier way to zoom-in / zoom-out on an image.

Use Motion Detect to Scan Multiple Pages to PDF

Place a stack of page beneath the HoverCam. As one is removed, the camera detects a change and takes a scan to any image format selected, including PDF.

Scans Appear to the Right

All scans appear to the right. Drag-and-drop to easily insert them into a Word document, Powerpoint presentation, email or other file.

Web Conference Through Flex
