The HoverCam HCS8S Solo 8 Document Camera is a Chromebook compatible version of the leading document camera line constructed on the HoverCam Photon 1.0 Imaging Engine. It has a greater resolution, brilliant video quality, and a much more impressive zoom using patented ASR technology.

It also ships with impressive new software called Flex10. It is unlike any document camera.
The Solo 8 is the only camera that can absolutely bring the sensor's entirely 13MP resolution in each video frame, which is comparable to 4K resolution. The image is resized in real-time to modify to the screen's display resolution. True 13MP clarity or resolution is being delivered at a 30 frames-per-second speed. Over USB3.0, we give uncompressed YUV video 30fps. Over USB2.0, the video is easily compressed MJPEG 30fps.
