SplashTop – The HoverCam

SplashTop

View and Control Your HoverCam Using Your Tablet, Wirelessly
Capture Ideas Easily and Engage Students Effortlessly, Wirelessly

The HoverCam Solo 8 + Splashtop Classroom Bundle allows teachers to view and control their desktop, applications and the live HoverCam image on their tablet from anywhere in the classroom. There are two bundle options available. The first, for $399, allows teachers to share their screen and HoverCam image with up to three devices. The second, for $449, allows for connection to up to 40 student devices (including Chromebooks and iOS devices) which can then view and control content remotely from their desks. Splashtop is a simple wireless solution for classroom engagement.

The $399 HoverCam + Splashtop Bundle Includes:

A HoverCam Solo 8 document camera with Flex 10 software for instruction and recording.

A single user, one-year subscription to Splashtop Classroom for the computer to make the HoverCam wireless. This allows the teacher to view and control the Solo 8 from their tablet, annotate over content then share with students’ devices.

Connection to up to 3 devices*

A single-user, one year subscription to Splashtop Mirroring 360 software to display the teacher or students’ device (iPad, Chromebook, PC or Mac) to the teacher’s desktop (and projector or large screen display if connected).

 

*An optional upgraded classroom license, including connectivity to up to 40 connected devices and a Solo 8 document camera, is available for $449

 

How It Works

Install the Splashtop Classroom software onto your PC or Mac (after the usual HoverCam FlexView and FlexCap installation).

Install the Splashtop app onto your and your students’ devices from the respective app store.

Launch the Splashtop app and connect to your PC/Mac to view and control your desktop.

Your computer desktop and HoverCam image will be displayed on your tablet. You are now untethered and completely mobile in the classroom with full control over the computer’s desktop and the HoverCam image on your tablet.

 

With your tablet, you can annotate, zoom in, zoom out, record, explain and interact with students. Optionally share your desktop with your students by starting a sharing session – students join by either taking a picture of the QR code or entering the session code. Students are initially in view-only mode; to pass control, choose the student from the teacher session manager panel. Use Splashtop’s Mirroring 360 software to display the image from your tablet to the projector or large screen display without any additional hardware.
