BACK OFFICE BUSINESS: Shelby County Schools Adopts HoverCam Technology

Teacher teaches with interactive flat panel

HoverCam today announced that Shelby County Schools (SCS) in Memphis, Tennessee, selected and installed HoverCam's Pilot digital teaching station and CenterStage Interactive Flat Panels (IFP) in the district's technology training lab and some classrooms. 

With more than 170 schools, SCS sought out HoverCam technology as a new tool to help educators strengthen early literacy and improve post-secondary readiness. Currently, the HoverCam solutions are installed in a number of classrooms as well as the technology training lab. HoverCam will also be in every classroom within the district's two new elementary schools expected to open in the fall of 2019.

The Pilot mobile teaching station combines the most important audio, video, and digital content elements used today in a mobile podium. The design eliminates the AV cart while freeing teachers from stationary desks or lecterns. It integrates a Windows PC, 13MP document camera, and 21-inch touchscreen with wireless HD mirroring functionality so any device content and touch annotations can be beamed to any IFP, projector, or TV in the room. The document camera's built-in microphone enables educators to capture audio. With the ClassFusion classroom management software, each lesson, interactive whiteboarding, annotation, and desktop marking can be recorded and saved to the cloud for students to access anywhere, anytime, and from any device or browser.

HoverCam's CenterStage series of 4K UHD IFPs includes features such as responsive multi-touch functionality, Android OS with app installation, and customization capability. The CenterStage family is available in 65-inch, 75-inch, and 86-inch models.
