Demonstrate complex concepts to your students with the HoverCam Solo 8 Plus Document Camera. It has a lightweight design for easy portability. Functions like time-lapse video and slow motion on the scanner modernizes your classroom. It features a built-in microphone for efficient collaboration. The BSI-CMOS sensor of this document camera produces every detail in ultra-clear quality at a resolution of 13 MP. It also record live 4K video at a rate of 30 fps. This is a refurbished model providing a significant savings from a new model!

New Features with the Solo 8 Plus

  • Boost the resolution from 8 to 13 megapixels
  • Outputs true, uncompressed 4K resolution at 30 fps (uncompressed is the keyword.) In layman's terms, this is true 4k "uncapped" ultra high definition
  • A “slow motion” video playback function. Solo 8 at lower resolutions is really fast (incredibly high FPS)
  • A “time lapse” video recording function

True 4K with Full Motion

The HoverCam HCS8+ Solo 8Plus is the world’s first digital document camera that is 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.

Adaptive Sensor Resolution (ASR) Technology

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.

Wirelessly Stream Content through AirPlay

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.

Annotate Over Live Video

HoverCam FlexVIEW 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

FlexVIEW 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.

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 Plus can be fully extended and raised to cover a 13” x 21” shooting area. It scans standard sizes including 11"x17" (A3) area and can be lowered to scan smaller items like business cards or driver's licenses. Use Solo 8 Plus as a scanner to scan multiple pages into one PDF file.

Capture Vibrant Still Photos

Capture photos in clear 13 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.

SlingShot into Favorite Programs

Any file created with the Solo 8 Plus can easily be used in any of your favorite programs. Just click the SlingShot button in FlexVIEW to instantly drop your images or videos into Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Evernote, Interactive Whiteboards and more
