The USB-powered HoverCam all-in-one scanner is designed to put the flatbed scanner to sleep – permanently.
It takes a snapshot of the document placed beneath its lens in a split second, much like a camera, as opposed to the more drawn-out method of traditional scanners – and takes up much less desktop space than a flatbed. The manufacturer, California-based Pathway Innovations and Technologies, says the HoverCam’s capabilities make scanning, faxing, emailing, archiving and organizing files a quicker, neater and more enjoyable experience.
Documents are filed automatically in RIA format (Rich Internet Application), which is based and developed on Adobe Air 2.0 technology, making it very flexible. There’s an anti-skew program built-in and documents scanned on a black background can be trimmed automatically, too. Images can be dragged and dropped into folders of your choice and PDFs can be created instantly. Its compact design makes the HoverCam even more functional in today’s office. The beauty is it works equally well with over-sized and irregular documents as it does with regular or smaller sized documents. High throughput scanning is also possible with this device where some traditional scanners struggle to cope.
