At a price of around $90, buying this webcam won’t break the bank, but it will certainly make live-streaming your services and classes a lot easier and a lot more effective. Let’s face it, churches of all sizes have a need to live-stream various activities, especially in these days of COVID where lots of organizations are going virtual with their activities and events. This HD camera may be small and compact, not to mention inexpensive, but don’t let that make you think it is a substandard camera. In fact, this USB webcam is easy to set up, easy to use, and better still, it provides you with professional results without requiring a professional price.
Live-streaming used to be very expensive and essentially out of reach for smaller organizations such as churches, but that is no longer the case. Thanks to the PTZOptics USB webcam, you can live-stream events both big and small and get great results every time. The webcam is reliable and has lots of professional, high-tech features you are certain to use, including contrast, shutter speed, white balance, iris, and numerous others. It sets up quickly through a USB port and can be attached to either a PC or Mac computer, making it compatible with almost any computer out there.
But aside from the impressive stats and numbers, there is one thing that is most important: it simply works great! It offers great visuals and great sound, and it works just right whether the event you’re filming is a small class, a large church service, or anything in between. For those of you who do like to hear about stats and numbers, here are just a few of the things that make this webcam so popular:
- The frame rate of up to 30 frames per second (FPS)
- An output resolution range of 720p30/25 to 1080p30/25
- A Panasonic 1/2.7-inch CMOS video sensor with 2.07 megapixels
- An 80-degree field of view (FOV)
- Both 2D and 3D digital noise reduction for excellent sound
The camera also comes with built-in microphones, a shutter speed of 1/30s to 1/10000s, a weight of roughly 1/3 lb, and a size of 4.6” x 1.5” x 1.2”. You get an on-screen display menu that makes adjusting the image settings a lot easier, and the camera is so easy to operate that you’ll feel like a pro after just one streaming job. This is indeed a great webcam to have regardless of the size of your church or facility, making this one purchase you aren’t likely to regret.
