Pathway Innovations and Technologies, Inc. has a proud history of working with schools and teachers to advance education technology.
Document cameras have replaced the overhead projector as one of the best tools for classroom instruction. Historically, document cameras were priced so high that many schools could not afford to equip more than a few select classrooms. The HoverCam changed that by introducing innovative technology that uses the power of the computer (rather than expensive optics) that makes it affordable for schools to empower every teacher with a HoverCam.
When used with a projector or flat screen to show live, large screen images of documents, worksheets or 3-D objects, the HoverCam provides crystal clear images, even of small text. In addition, each HoverCam is also a personal desktop scanner with a full suite of software for recording voice and video, managing files and grading multiple choice tests. The HoverCam costs less, saves you time, improves delivery of content and increases student engagement.
How would you like to have your own document camera available anytime you need it? The HoverCam is affordable. Imagine everything you could do with your own HoverCam. Aren’t there times when you would like to use your projector to show large screen images of books and worksheets where the students in the back can actually read the small text? Are there times when you would like to make a recording of a lesson with the touch of a button and play it back easily in your “flipped classroom” or post it to your website? Are there times when you wish you had a device that could scan students’ homework or a magazine article then share it via email? How about using the picture-in-picture capability of our two-camera Neo to conference with a class on the other side of the district or the globe? If you’re a science teacher, how would you like to time-lapse record an experiment? You can also use a HoverCam to teach reading, work collectively on assignments, show and tell, remote conference and save time grading multiple choice tests with our GradeCentral software.
Principals and Administrators
Provide your teachers with a tool they’ll embrace and use enthusiastically while stretching your technology budget. By adopting a new technology approach, each HoverCam provides a level of performance that typically costs hundreds of dollars more from other companies. With the HoverCam, you can often purchase 2 or 3 times as many document cameras for the same amount of money. And, the HoverCam can also be used as an assessment tool for the grading of multiple choice quizzes and tests, allowing staff to export scores to your school’s SIS. Not only will your staff and students enjoy the HoverCam, may we also suggest you try one with your next presentation? We encourage you to find out why 100,000 people worldwide have chosen the HoverCam.
Tech Coordinators, Media Specialists and IT Directors
Look closely at the specifications and you’ll realize why Pathway Innovations and our HoverCam is the technology leader in document cameras for schools. We were first to market 3 years ago with the world’s first USB high resolution document cameras with our T3 and T5 models. Our Neo 3 is the world’s first document camera with two cameras, allowing picture-in-picture, and the Neo allows simultaneous VGA and USB output. Our Solo 5 is the world’s fastest, true 5 mega pixel USB document camera with refresh rates of 25 frames/second or more at UXGA resolution. The HoverCam Mini 5e is the world’s smallest document camera. Our software, HoverCam Flex, works across all of our products and has always been highly regarded as top notch for functionality and ease of use. Our software license allows you to install HoverCam Flex on every computer in your school and we’ll even make it easy for you to deploy it to every computer in the district with an MSI install. We provide a list of training videos on our website (for customers who would like training), free software upgrades, and free tech support if you need it. Please let us know if you find a camera in this price range that matches the quality, performance and capability. We can’t. We encourage you to see for yourself the HoverCam difference.
