HoverCam today announced that it has expanded its Pilot Series with the Pilot 5 wireless digital teaching station. The new Pilot 5 adds a rechargeable battery pack that powers all-day, cable-free operation, allowing educators to teach from anywhere in the classroom.
"When we developed the very successful Pilot 3, some educators told us they wanted even greater mobility — with no power cord limitations on where they could go in the classroom," said Felix Pimentel, product manager at HoverCam. "The Pilot 5 evolved from that feedback and delivers the same unfettered and intuitive experience that makes the Pilot 3 enjoyable to use, while offering nearly unlimited range of movement in the classroom with wireless HDMI and bidirectional touch interactivity."
Like the Pilot 3, the Pilot 5 mobile podium features a Windows 10 PC, 21-inch touchscreen display with 10-point touch, HoverCast wireless HD mirroring functionality, and a 13-megapixel document camera. The Pilot 5 offers a rechargeable battery for all-day operation and includes an Intel Core® i5 or i7 processor, up to 16GB RAM memory, and up to 512GB SSD. The solution also features a built-in microphone with noise reduction to capture and record lessons, and it can beam the podium's screen and touch annotations to any interactive flat panel, projector, or TV in HD resolution.
The Pilot 5 model is now available from HoverCam. More information on HoverCam and their full line of products is available at thehovercam.com.
