HoverCam announced that it has redesigned its Flex 11 software to integrate with Zoom fully. HoverCam was already compatible with Skype, Google Hangouts, Google Meet and Microsoft Teams. Now, teachers can initiate and schedule Zoom calls directly from HoverCam’s free, comprehensive document camera software.
HoverCam’s redesigned Flex 11 document camera software now incorporates Zoom’s familiar interface. With this integration, teachers no longer have to run HoverCam’s Flex 11 document camera software and Zoom as separate applications — but can instead schedule and launch meetings quickly right from Flex 11. This capability eliminates the black screen that previously appeared when switching between Zoom and the document camera software. Also, teachers can now see students on the call as they work in Flex 11. They can access Zoom’s spotlight and screen-sharing features as well as other Flex 11 features that include virtual whiteboarding, annotation, camera control, split-screen viewing and recording with annotations.
HoverCam’s software also allows teachers to use their webcam to keep students engaged with their face and eyes while simultaneously displaying the HoverCam camera image, or any lesson material on the computer screen such as websites, slides, whiteboards, videos or PDF documents.
