Digital Teaching Station Named Best Up-and-Coming Education Product by the Editorial Staff
SAN DIEGO — Aug. 16, 2018 — HoverCam, a leader in innovative, interactive, and engaging education solutions, announced that the company’s Pilot 3 digital teaching station received a Best of InfoComm 2018 Award from rAVe Publications (rAVe) for the Best Up-and-Coming Education Product. rAVe’s awards are the result of staff visiting every booth at InfoComm 2018 and experiencing new technologies firsthand. The solution was selected by the editorial staff of the magazine, who recorded video of each product at the show and made determinations after the event had come to a close.
“We are delighted that the Pilot series continues to garner such positive reactions from the AV community,” said Felix Pimentel, product manager at HoverCam. “HoverCam’s mission is to prepare educators for a fully digital learning environment with intuitive and collaborative solutions. That rAVe would honor the solution with this award speaks to the universal appeal of this technology that solves pain points for any type of education environment, whether it is the boardroom or the classroom.”
Part of HoverCam’s Pilot series, the Pilot 3 is the world’s first fully integrated wireless digital teaching station. Featuring a Windows PC, 13-megapixel document camera, and 21-inch touch screen with wireless HD mirroring functionality in a mobile podium, the Pilot 3 eliminates the outdated AV cart and combines the most important elements used in today’s digital classrooms. Teachers are liberated from stationary desks or lecterns and are free to move about the classroom. The Pilot 3 wireless transceiver instantly beams the podium’s screen and touch annotations to any interactive flat panel, projector, or TV in HD resolution, eliminating the hazard of dangling cords and cables. The document camera’s built-in microphone captures audio for every lesson.
