Information regarding the type of camera suitable for use with Supernova’s Connect and View feature.


In order to use the Camera functionality within SuperNova’s “Connect and View” feature, the camera hardware should meet the following specifications:

  • Connects via USB 2.0

  • Uses Windows “plug and play” driver (so third party software needs to be installed)

  • Has video capability

  • Can be used for Skype video calls*

For optimum results, choose an HD camera with autofocus, delivering 1080p video resolution with automatic low-light correction. To ensure your camera always remains stable, we also recommend using a camera stand (most document cameras come with a stand).

*As a general rule of thumb, if it works with Skype for making video calls it can be used with SuperNova.
