HoverCam Teams with DocuScan Plus at CES
Alliance Brings Together Pocket-Sized Document Camera
and World’s First Cloud-Based Scanning Technology
SAN DIEGO, Calif – January 3, 2011 –
Pathway Innovations and Technologies, Inc.
, the designer and manufacturer of HoverCam office cameras, and
Serotek Corporation
, the leading provider of accessible multi-platform and cloud-based mobile technology
solutions, announce their alliance for CES 2011. Together the organizations deliver
mainstream convenience plus assistive technology industry accessibility to mobile
document scanning.
 The HoverCam Mini™ and Neo™ office cameras and DocuScan Plus™, the world’s first
cloud-based scanning solution, will be demonstrated together at the 2011 International
Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 6 – 9.
Unlike conventional scanners, the portable Neo and pocket-sized HoverCam Mini scan
documents in one second or less. Users need only plug it into any computer’s USB
port. The
DocuScan Plus
 software offers high-quality optical character recognition to convert the printed
page to text. This self-voicing application requires no special drivers and can read
printed pages as well as many types of PDF files, including those containing text
or those containing only images. The entire camera and software package is affordably
priced below $800 USD.
“In today’s mobile business environment, users demand immediacy, portability and
global accessibility,” said Ji Shen, Chairman and CEO, Pathway Innovations and Technology,
Inc., “By teaming with Serotek’s DocuScan Plus technology, the HoverCam can deliver
all three.”
“While DocuScan Plus was originally designed for the reading impaired, such as those
who are blind, have low vision or are dyslexic, it also has mass appeal,” said Serotek
CEO, Mike Calvo, “The size and simplicity of the HoverCam Mini broadens the mobility
as well as the reach and appeal of this total scanning solution.”
Both products will be demonstrated at booth number 35955 on the second floor of the
south hall at CES 2011. For additional information, contact Pathway Innovations and
