HC-S8 - HoverCam Solo 8 - HC-S8
Brilliant 8-Megapixel Resolution:
Solo 8’s advanced sensor delivers uncompressed YUV video with 4K clarity, giving you 4x as many pixels than the resolution of a 1080p HDTV. This ultimately means there is no image quality loss. Experience every image 4x crisper, sharper and clearer, than any other high priced visualiser. Save in .jpeg, multi-paged .pdf, .png, .tiff and others. With Solo 8 the finest details come to life.
Stunning 30fps Full Motion Video:
Solo 8 utilises a new generation of imaging technology called Photon 1.0. This key technology gives the world, for the first time ever, a visualiser that delivers 4K clarity and full motion frame rate at the same time. This is an unprecedented achievement in USB camera technology. All new generation HoverCams will be equipped with this amazing proprietary technology, allowing you to truly create captivating lag-free video.
Our Photon 1.0 imaging engine uses Adaptive Sensor Resolution (ASR) technology that adapts to your screen size and gives you all 8 million uncompressed pixels at a 4x magnification. This is equivalent to optical zoom, without the bulkiness and high cost.
Compact & Versatile:
Our advanced electronics are paired with meticulous craftsmanship and well thought out design. Five pivot points allow the camera to be pointed in any direction, raised to shoot large areas, lowered for close-ups and folded for compactness. A swivel lens allows for 90° rotation for image orientation.
No External Power Adapter Needed:
A single USB 3.0 cable is the only thing needed to power the Solo 8. This gives you the convenience of plug-and-play simplicity. The Solo 8 uses less than 5 volts, which is within the maximum power of USB 2.0 and only half the power of USB 3.0.
Scan from A3 to Business Cards:
The Solo 8 can be fully extended and raised to cover an 11"x17" (A3) area. Use this functionality to scan multiple pages into one PDF file. It can also be lowered to scan smaller items like business cards.
Advanced Camera Controls:
Solo 8 is the first USB visualiser that offers advanced camera controls normally found in expensive digital SLR cameras. Through the provided FLEX software, easily utilize autofocus, select-focus, auto exposure and auto white balance functionalities.
SlingShot into Favourite Programs:
Easily transfer any files created with the Solo 8 into your favourite programs. Just drag-and-drop or click the SlingShot button in FLEX to instantly drop your images or videos into Word, PowerPoint, Interactive Whiteboard Software, Evernote and more.
Cost-Effective Multi-Function Solution:
We deliver a higher performance visualiser than our competitors, at a lower price. This is due to smart imaging technology that leverages the full intelligence of computers. We also offer more functionality, with scanning, web-cam and an ultra HD video recording capability.
