Connectivity
The HoverCam Solo SPARK connects to your computer through USB (USB 2.0 cable is included) and it runs through HoverCam’s Flex software. This gives you the ability to capture images and video, adjust resolution, annotate, and control the camera from your interactive whiteboard. Compact and Versatile The camera has a very small footprint on your desk, and is very versatile, able to be positioned exactly where you want it to, using the 5 pivot points on the camera. It can even be positioned to look down a microscope (Adaptors available to purchase separately). It connects to your computer via USB, and does not need a separate mains cable, meaning it is very portable.

Image Resolution & Quality
The crystal-clear image is lag and blur-free; as are any videos recorded through the device. You can video for hours…. the only constraint is the size of your computer’s hard disk. You can record video at Full HD 1080P, and take still images in true 8-megapixel resolution.


Image Manipulation

You can also take photos (snapshots) using the device – from an A3 document to a business card (or even a microscope slide). These can be annotated if required, and all images and videos are managed by the archive manager. You can also crop images, or use OCR for text
recognition. You can even use Slingshot to drag the live image into Word, PowerPoint or your Interactive Whiteboard software.


Whiteboard Compatibility
The HoverCam will integrate into all Interactive Whiteboard software applications (e.g. Smart notebook), with the camera being recognised by the software as an input.


Software
The powerful HoverCam software can be freely downloaded and installed throughout a school or department, meaning that if required, the camera can easily become a shared device.
The Windows software, Flex 11, is incredibly capable, offering live annotation over the live image; as well as the ability to take photos and video footage easily. Slow motion and time-lapse videos are great additional features, as is the ability to adjust the image for brightness, exposure and focussing.


Software is also available for both Chromebooks and MAC, and is being developed all of the time to add features.


Web Cam
The HoverCam Solo SPARK works seamlessly with live camera software such as Skype – where it’s built in microphone, and simple to position camera head make it easy to present either yourself, or a document you’re working on, during the live chat.
