SAN DIEGO, July 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pathway Innovations and Technologies, Inc., the designer of HoverCam document cameras and portable scanners, and Splashtop, the worldwide leader in cross-device computing and collaboration, announced a partnership allowing HoverCam document cameras to wirelessly stream live video images to any classroom tablet or device.
Pairing HoverCam's high performance Solo 8 document camera with Splashtop's powerful software educators can seamlessly utilize their iPads, Android tablets, Chromebooks and other devices to access, collaborate, annotate and share their HoverCam document camera content wirelessly from anywhere in their classroom.
"We believe partnering with Splashtop is a significant opportunity. Their smart software and our newly redefined document camera Solo 8 is a great pairing. Teachers will get the wireless solution they've been looking for – giving them the ability to display a HoverCam's content on any iPad, tablet or smartphone with Splashtop Business and then soon being able to manage the delivery of the camera's content to student devices with Splashtop Classroom," said Ji Shen, CEO and Founder of Pathway Innovations.
"Millions of teachers trust Splashtop in the classroom – enjoying new found mobility controlling their lesson from anywhere in the room. What we learned was that control of HoverCams market leading document cameras was also a must-have," said Mark Lee, CEO and Co-founder of Splashtop Inc. "By bundling Splashtop Business, and soon Splashtop Classroom, teachers can now look forward to high performance viewing and remote control of the Solo 8's visually stunning images, and in the future, streaming the image to any student device. Hang onto your hats – classrooms are about to get supercharged!"
The recently released HoverCam Solo 8, with an MSRP of $349, is the world's first SuperSpeed USB 3.0 document camera equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor that outputs 4K clarity at 30 frames per second. This multi-functional device is capable of scanning various sized documents, recording HD video for flipped learning and web conferencing with third party tools such as Skype and Zoom. During the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Conference last week, HoverCam and Splashtop teamed-up to showcase the new Solo 8 document camera and GuruBook Android document camera with Splashtop Business in action.
To kick-off sales, a bundle deal is available. The Solo 8 document camera, 1-year subscription to Splashtop Business, the VersoBoard, a microscope adapter and a 15' USB 3.0 cable will be available at a special price of just $399. For additional information, please visit www.thehovercam.com
