Summary: Any new camera purchased for a meeting room should provide native 1080p-30 resolution. 720p looks fine on the desktop but in meeting rooms, it simply doesn’t meet expectations. Select a camera with true optical zoom and with an optical zoom range that best meets your specific application. Take room measurements and check them against the graphics above to be sure. Digital zoom is not a useful feature for most applications. Presets are great for all cameras but after about Qty 6 you will likely see no additional benefit for most applications. USB 3.0 is the new standard for USB HD cameras. You must maintain USB 3.0 compliance throughout the connection including any extensions from camera port to and including PC port. Serial control is only necessary for certain applications. When you do need it, a miniDin8 connector or DB9 connector and VISCA protocol compliance is all you typically need to confirm for the camera and controller.
