Logitech ConferenceCams vs HuddleCamHD

HuddleCamHD designs professional video conferencing cameras with complete solutions and integration friendly options for the Professional AV market. Logitech designs compact cameras for small group chats with Bluetooth and NFC pairing options. Both companies manufacture cameras that are capable of delivering 1080p Full HD video at 30 FPS. Logitech gains an advantage because it also offers a speaker and a microphone for communication along with a control hub while HuddleCam only produces cameras not the control unit. HuddleCam HD cameras do include a remote control for pan, tilt and zoom but no speakers or microphone are available on-board.

Using AMCAP for UVC Camera Control

Using AMCAP for UVC Camera Control

UVC-Control-Video-Capture

AMCAP is one of the most useful tools for simply viewing and working with USB webcams. AMCAP is completely free and has many new features you might find useful. Personally my favorite feature is the built in UVC control for Pan Tilt and Zoom. This software has become the cornerstone for our testing, and we wanted to share a little bit about how we use AMCAP. This is a free Windows application and to the best of our knowledge there is no Mac or Linux versions.

Skype for Business certified Webcams and Room Systems

 

Microsoft updated Lync to Skype for Business a few months ago. The software provides an all-in-one solution for video conferencing and meeting rooms. Skype for Business features the simple UI of Skype integrated with professional services of Lync. Microsoft also partnered with several hardware manufacturers to develop Skype for Business certified webcams and room systems for an optimal experience.

SMART Skype for Business certified Webcams and Room Systems
SMART is an official Microsoft partner for Skype for Business room systems. The company has introduced several video conferencing systems with single as well as dual displays. SMART is the only manufacturer that offers a massive 84-inches display and a camera with 4K resolution. It’s a perfect combination but it will require a lot of bandwidth as well. SMART systems start at the price of $17,999 and go all the way up to $40,999. They are definitely not cheap but it is a onetime investment for your ultimate meeting room.
