I told you that we got a huge Internet speed increase recently and that has made video calls so much smoother than in the past. Some of the video meetings can still be tedious, but at least they aren’t buffering and jumping. I’ll be including Amazon links that can earn me a puny commission. Nothing else was provided to me.
Today I’m going to look at a new Webcam that can improve the quality you are getting with an older Webcam. It depends on your specific needs, but for many this is a worthwhile upgrade.
The AVerMedia Live Streamer CAM 513 is a bit bigger than many older Webcams. Look carefully at the image above and you can see a small black hole on either side of the lens. These are the microphones. To the right of the lens is a blue light that indicates the camera is active. In the middle is a big lens that captures video at up to 4K at 30 frames per second. You can also do 1080p at 60 frames per second.
Note there is an arm on the left side that can rotate in front of the lens to give you privacy in times when you aren’t using the camera. The Webcam works on both Windows and Mac, but Windows users can use the ePTZ software (easy Pan Tilt Zoom) to adjust the camera so it is capturing exactly what you desire.
If you want to increase the quality of the video in your Web meetings or calls, this camera can up your game. It can also be an upgrade for those who are creating content using a Webcam. You’ll pay more than entry-level Webcams, but the quality delivered makes it worth the cost.
