Panasonic India – a leading diversified technology company, today launched a range of unique 4K resolution USB Camera solutions to enhance workplace communications and provide an experience of in-person video interactions. With virtual and video communications becoming the dominant form of interaction today, these USB camera solutions have been designed for enterprises, SMEs, MSMEs, SoHos, institutions and for professionals working from home. Easy-to-deploy through USB interface, these cameras can be easily installed on Windows, Mac OS, Android OS, and Linux and are compatible with all cloud based solutions. The cameras will be available through Panasonic distributors and system integrators, at a starting price of INR 99,999.
The new range of conference cameras include four models i.e., KX-VDW120SX, KX-VDW200SX, KX-VDW500SX, and KX-VDW300SX equipped with the unique 4K resolution and comes with auto framing and speaker tracking capabilities. The auto-framing in USB cameras is implemented with intelligent video analysis and electronic pan-tilt-zoom (ePTZ) technology with a maximum field view angle up to 110°, which automatically frames all participants in the meeting room ensuring a personalized and interactive experience. The speaker tracking is implemented with audio positioning and an intelligent face detection feature that tracks the user in the room while speaking, giving the user the flexibility to move around during calls. This solution is an ideal option for clear, fluent and easy communication, empowering businesses and leaders to effortlessly connect and communicate with clients and employees whether in office or at home.
