Not pleased with this camera at all. As soon as I tried it out I had re-pack it. As the saying goes you get what you pay for and this camera being cheap in price translates to cheap in quality as well. I highly do not recommend this for someone looking for a PTZ camera with a good quality.

Bought this to try with products like Skype in a small conference room. I like that it has presets that work and it fired and ran from the application right out of the box. Image quality wasn't bad for a $$buy. The build quality was pretty bad. When I was centered on the screen the camera looked like it was shooting over my shoulder. I am not sending it back but I definitely not buying any more of them. I need one with a little more lens too. Even for a small conf room I think we need a 5 or 6X lens.

Great value

Great for the money. Used out of the box with no IT assist. Will be purchasing one for each of our offices.

This is a well-designed product

This camera is capable and flexible. It is better than the word huddle might imply, as it will work well for many different scenarios. The panning and tilting is plenty capable, though a little slow. Note that the optical Zoom, though high quality, is only 3X, and you might well want more than that, depending on the use case. The standard camera mount makes this a good choice for pros and a variety of scenarios.

Works beautifully!

We ordered the HuddleCam worship streaming kit and it meets our needs perfectly. We added a simple mixer so we could draw audio from our church sound system as well as the streaming kit's microphone. The setup works well and allows us to get our services out there in these pandemic times.

Just what I needed for live streaming.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, I have had to hold all my services and teaching online through Facebook Live & Vimeo. I needed a portable and easy to use Camera with the ability to pan and zoom. The Huddle Cam HD was just what I needed. It started right up once connected to the computer and has been very easy to use and is very functional for my ministry at the church while working online.

Great camera

The conference room has a 50' USB run from the computer to camera, and not all cameras work consistently over it. This one is stable and clear, so we bought one for each of the three rooms.

what about audio??? do i get the audio to my you tube live from an audio jack off the computer?
Asked by: Kevin
If your computer has a combined audio jack, yes, you can use a 3.5mm mic to stream your audio. If not, you’ll either need a USB microphone or another microphone and a USB Audio Interface.

Is there a ceiling mount that is unobtrusive for the purpose of teaching painting live in a studio with a class in attendance?

The huddle cam ceiling mount is unobtrusive. The camera would sit on the platform of the mount and a poll would be attached to the mount.

question

Is there a free compatible software to control this camera?
Asked by: Nienscecc P.
We also, offer a free control software on our website or you can use the one from Rocosoft. It does require a DB9 to USB adapter attached to the included RS-232 to DB9 cable. You may want to consider DB9 extension cabling available from B&H.
