HoverCam is now shipping its Ultra 10 document camera, which is a 4K video output, Android computer-integrated, 7.1-inch multitouch tablet screen with a 16-megapixel camera sensor. With Ultra 10, users can connect wirelessly to any display, IFP or projector through the included 4K transmitter to record lessons, capture images and show live video in 4K without consuming classroom bandwidth or Wi-Fi.
HoverCam integrates the HoverCast system to send uncompressed 4K signals at 30 frames per second (fps) to any display — all without delay or using the room’s Wi-Fi connection. The system’s transmitter and receiver utilize gigabit radio frequency technology that creates a point-to-point closed network without requiring passwords, complicated network setups or costing bandwidth.
Thanks to its Android operating system, users can either use the included Flex Android document camera app or load their favorite apps onto the unit and do computing right from the camera. Its 7-inch HD multitouch screen provides a tablet experience by enabling annotation and finger gestures like pinch-to-zoom, which complement the latest optical character recognition, augmented reality and 3D apps. The Ultra 10 uses a quad-core 2.4Ghz CPU, 4Gb of DDR3 RAM, 64GB of SSD, an image signal processor, and a hardware-accelerated codec for H.264/H.265 video streaming.
