HoverCam is shipping its eGlass, an all-in-one, transparent writing glass. eGlass is a transparent writing surface with a built-in camera and adjustable lighting that is ideal for remote, hybrid and traditional classrooms. eGlass all-in-one, fully integrated, transparent writing glass allows students to see their teacher’s face as they write. With teachers looking toward the camera and, by extension, at their students while writing, students are able to see the teacher’s facial expressions and gestures. This nonverbal communication is vital to the learning process, reinforcing communication and understanding. As the instructor writes on the glass, HoverCam’s built-in software automatically flips the image so the writing reads left to right for students. The surface’s embedded LEDs intensify the pen ink with an eye-catching glow that is highly visible on-screen and in person.
Available in 35-inch and 50-inch models, instructors simply plug eGlass into their PCs, Macs or Chromebooks with a single USB cable. It comes with intuitive software built around HoverCam’s robust and powerful Flex 11 camera software. The eGlass software features Zoom integration, allowing users to schedule, launch or join Zoom calls without leaving the software. It’s also compatible with other remote conferencing programs, including Microsoft Teams, Skype and Google Meet. In addition, the solution features image insertion, allowing users to drag eye-catching visual aids, slideshows, browser content and other documents directly onto the screen, allowing them to use eGlass to annotate on top of the content.
