Most of the new tech you buy in these wacky wireless times connects with your PC either through the air or with fancy-pants heavy-duty data ports. That’s part of the reason why the new VDO360 USB video conferencing camera is such a revelation. In a fistfight, it could easily hold its own against an entire gang of elite cameras, yet it brings the full might of its power to your PC or Mac through a humble USB connection.
That means no need to blow more money on a new PCI card or extra hardware. This is a direct connection, not some rerouting through a PCI card that diminishes video quality by the time you see it. Instead you get crisp, clear HD video the plug-and-play way.
With a patented FPF Focus system, the camera lets you focus on your subject in a wink. Even better, it pans and tilts up to 300 degrees horizontally and 180 degrees vertically, giving you the quiet agility to reach every angle. The VDO360 is one of the best conference room cameras.
If we in this industry were honest with ourselves, we should really call it “video and audio conferencing.” Not as catchy, maybe, but it emphasizes the part of a remote meeting we all take for granted—the sound. You can fuss over the video until you’re blue in the face (which wouldn’t look good on camera, btw), but the meeting will go on without it … as long as the sound holds out. Without audio, the meeting is toast.
That’s why you need a microphone/speaker phone that sounds good and holds up even when the video fails. A reliable source of audio you can set up with no sweat and then essentially forget about so you can focus on the conversations it enables. To stay more productive and less stressed, you need the Chat 150 in your life.
With the ClearOne Chat 150, you sound great to remote users and they sound great to you—no matter where you are. No shouting, no noisy repositioning. The ClearOne Chat 150 features 2 built-in, omni-directional microphones and a powerful speaker that enable 360-degree coverage. This gives you a professional conference call solution wherever you choose to place the call. This unified communications speakerphone is the best for its price, perfect for anyone who needs to communicate and collaborate with crystal-clear audio either in the office or on the road from any PC, Bluetooth-enabled tablet, smartphone, or laptop.Û¬With this device, anywhere and everything becomes a conference room. Make the conversation happen anytime, anywhere.Û¬Û¬
