Solo 5 is the world's fastest 5 megapixel USB document camera which means clearer images with little blurring. The shooting area is A3 so teachers can show a whole textbook clearly. It includes HoverCam Flex Software allowing instructors to crop images, scan, record voice & video, display picture-in-picture, video conference, share documents and more!

Solo 5 delivers twice the resolution of the highest HDTV (1080p) and our best-selling HoverCam T3. If offers a range of resolutions from 2592 x 1944 at 15fps to 800x600 at 30fps. This means you get exceptional clarity when displaying or scanning small text.

HoverCam Solo 5 comes with a tiny auto focusing CMOS sensor and lens module. From any angle or distance, your images become instantly clear. With auto focus and AF Lock, blurry images are a thing of the past.

Position the camera from 17.7" to 1.4" above the surface to achieve 12x mechanical zoom. Combined with the 16x digital zoom, the Solo 5 has an amazing 192x effective magnification. This zoom ability allows you to see the tiny details on a quarter, which are virtually undetectable to the human eye. When zoomed out, the shooting area is A3 equivalent to two U.S. Letter-sized pages side by side.
