USA - ClearOne, a global provider of audio and visual communications solutions has launched two new webcams with the intention of “making true-to-life video collaboration possible for everyone”.
For users who want to upgrade from the basic camera included in their laptop or PC, ClearOne has introduced its most affordable webcam to-date, UNITE 10. The small, powerful webcam supports up to 1080p video quality and offers autofocus. It can capture five-megapixel images with a field of view up to 87-degrees. UNITE 10 attaches to any PC or laptop with a simple mounting bracket, and a 1.5m USB-A cable ensures simple connection to most modern computers. UNITE 10 is also available to dealers and distributors in 20 packs for commercial sale.
Meanwhile, the new UNITE 50 4K AF webcam introduces ClearOne’s new Auto-Framing technology to maximize screen use through intelligent image algorithms and ePTZ automation (electronic pan, tilt and zoom). “With 4K video quality at 30Hz, auto-focus capability, 4x digital zoom, more than 8 megapixels of total resolution and an ultra-wide 110-degree field of view, the UNITE 50 4K AF ePTZ is equally capable of delivering incredible image quality from a home office as it is at capturing all participants in an office boardroom,” the company says.
The camera can be controlled through an IR remote, further simplifying use and enabling real-time control of pan, tilt and zoom to provide greater control when capturing multi-person meeting environments. A standard damping mount ensures fast, easy installation, while an included USB 3.0 cable provides both power and video.
Both new ClearOne cameras enable life-like video quality on web-based conferencing applications including ClearOne’s COLLABORATE Space, WebEx, Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting, and Microsoft Teams.
ClearOne chair and CEO Zee Hakimoglu comments: “During the pandemic, we recognised that millions of people were expected to use video collaboration tools, for the first time, and the rapid societal shift to home-based and remote work left a lot of people desiring higher quality video solutions to ensure they make a good impression and enjoy reliable, clear and efficient communication.”
He continues: “Whether a student wants their instructor and classmates to see them more clearly, or an office manager needs a multi-purpose camera with the benefit of artificial intelligence framing functions, ClearOne’s newest products of 2021 are accommodating ‘the new normal’ with HD quality and accessibility for any budget.”
