The solution allows teachers to interact with display and collaboration technology from anywhere in the classroom
HoverCam has announced that its new Pilot X digital teaching station is now shipping. The teaching tool enables teachers to interact with and share content to displays in the classroom without being tethered to a computer or display. Winner of multiple industry awards, the Pilot X combines a powerful tablet computer with a blazing-fast Intel CPU, wireless 4K presentation capabilities, microphone, and a fold-out document camera in one convenient, wireless station.
“The Pilot X is the first digital teaching station to truly put state-of-the-art interactive technology at teachers’ fingertips,” said Ji Shen, CEO of HoverCam. “They can teach from anywhere in the classroom and annotate or interact with content on the screen without having to turn their backs, taking advantage of spontaneous teaching moments that build meaningful connections and solidify students’ grasp of new concepts.”
With the HoverCam Pilot X, teachers and presenters can intuitively work from an ergonomic and mobile teaching podium featuring a slide-out keyboard. For even greater freedom, the 13-inch, 10-point-touch tablet can be unlocked and used anywhere in the classroom. With multi-touch technology, the tablet has the horsepower of Windows 10 OS combined with the intuitive hand gestures of a mobile device. The system boasts HoverCam’s award-winning 4K 13MP document camera that cleverly folds out. In addition, a built-in wireless HDMI transmitter beams content to any interactive flat panel, projector, or display in resolutions up to 4K, eliminating the tripping hazards and setup of cables. And with HoverCam’s ClassFusion software, it enables interactive whiteboarding and annotation for lesson recording. The notes, annotations, video, and audio of every lesson are captured perfectly in real time for students to access anytime and from any device for learning that goes beyond the classroom or training facility.
