HoverCam Ultra 8 overview

  • 1Description

The HoverCam Ultra 8 is a compact document camera that allows you to present images, graphs, documents, and various other material to an audience, and to record your presentation so you can post it on YouTube, TeacherTube, or other venue if you'd like.

The Ultra 8 features an adjustable 8MP camera head that can be rotated to capture your document in a live view, as a high-resolution image, or as a Full HD video, all the while showing the captured image on a display in real-time.

The Ultra 8 offers multiple output options for connecting to a display. You get HDMI, VGA, USB 3, and USB 2 connectors, and can connect to HDTVs, projectors, and interactive whiteboards.

It also features an LCD viewing monitor that shows exactly what your audience sees on the output display, so you don't have to turn and look at that display. The LCD also has touchscreen controls, such as zoom, record, and focus, providing for a simple and easy navigation and control experience.

If you choose to record everything as a video file, you can turn the camera head towards you to incorporate yourself in the presentation, or likewise turn it towards others in attendance or anyone or anything else in sight. You can also zoom in on an image by up to 320 times, meaning you can enlarge the tiniest details on images.

Furthermore, 4 built-in LEDs illuminate the image to make its details better visible, and a built-in microphone captures your narration or any other sound heard during the presentation. The mic is also designed with built-in noise reduction, so it will provide more professional-sounding audio.

In addition, you can add annotations, effects, and filters to the presentation. The majority of the features and effects are accessible via the included Flex 10 software (Windows), which in most cases goes hand-in-hand with the Ultra 8 and allows you to do a lot with it. Among the available features you'll find Picture-in-Picture and Mask, which provide for highly enhanced and interactive presentations.

Everything image or video you record can be stored to a microSD card (an 8GB card is included) or directly to your computer.

The Ultra 8 can be used on your desktop or securely mounted to a podium, lectern, or AV cart.

    HoverCam Ultra 8 reviews

    Ultra 8 Document Camera is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great elmo - Works with Mac I've had the HoverCam Ultra 8 for about a year and have been very pleased with it. Another reviewer said it was incompatible with Mac, but I have no problem using the HoverCam Flex 10 software with it on my Macs. I mostly use it through the HDMI port anyway in a deposition video setup.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buying two more immediately! We use this product for classroom presentations. It is a very flexible, user-friendly device with a small footprint perfect for classroom podium rooms. It provides a high-definition signal over our video conferencing systems that our remote users love!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will NOT Work with a Mac bought this based on USB connectivity and ability to record on a computer. Image would not appear on any of our Macs. Called HoverCam customer service and was told that this camera will not work on Mac software, only connecrted directly to a projector.
