More people are working from home. Even TV interviews are conducted via an online platform from homes. We get to see the bookshelves, living rooms and basements of personalities. But to get the best picture, it is important to have a good Webcam. Today we’ll investigate a solid Webcam that is most likely a huge upgrade from what you currently use. I’ll include an Amazon link so you can buy if you choose. Yes, I get a tiny commission. No, I didn’t get anything for free.
The HD Webcam 1080P with Microphone is a bit of a no-name option, but its features and price make it a great choice. You want full HD video capabilities and it delivers those. A good microphone with noise reduction to block out background noise gets clear audio. This Webcam also works very well in low-light situations so you get the best picture possible.
Just as important is a camera that works with your computers and your software. This camera plugs in via USB and works with Windows, Mac, Chrome and Android operating systems. It can be used with Skype, Facetime, OBS, Xbox One, Hangouts, Facebook, Zoom, Twitch and most any other software that works with video.
Just as important to having the camera work on your devices and software is making sure it doesn’t work if the bad guys want to watch. Right now there is a special offer that includes a free privacy shutter as well as a tripod stand.
If you want to improve your online meetings, your video calls and other video then you should at least investigate a new Webcam.
