Best Uses for a 4K Webcam

Joel R. Cruz • March 15, 2021

Yes, we are still working from home today and many are settling with the built-in webcams on their computers to video conference with colleagues or connect with students through distance learning. While these embedded webcams may suffice for simpler applications, sometimes an external 4K webcam is needed for more professional representation and razor-sharp visuals. It’s a livelihood for some as more fitness instructors live stream to their clients for online workouts and video podcasts become more popular and strive to grow their channels. Owning a 4K webcam future-proofs you as video technology and communication continue to expand.


BZBGEAR Has Great 4K Webcam Options


We have a couple of ePTZ 4K webcams that are perfect for remote teaching, video conferences, telehealth, fitness instructors, podcasts/radio, and hobbyists or gamers live streaming as part of their business. Unlike a PTZ camera that has motorized parts to physically pan, tilt, and zoom the camera, an ePTZ webcam is an electronic pan-tilt-zoom camera that does not move. Instead it grabs the image within the camera frame and moves within that image. It is similar when recording a video or taking a photo on your smartphone and are able to zoom and move around that image.

The BG-EPTZ-UH4K is equipped with a Sony® 1/2.5 Exmor 4K CMOS Sensor. The USB 3.0 connection provides convenience for connectivity to a Mac or PC utilizing conference platforms such as Skype, Zoom, Google Meetings/Classroom, and Echo360. An HDMI 2.0 output is useful for a local display. You can set up two or more BG-EPTZ-UH4K webcams to a video mixer for multiple angle shots creating a professional live stream to platforms such as YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, and Vimeo. The BG-EPTZ-UH4K also picks up audio to 8 meters with its built-in omnidirectional microphone while providing a flexible mount that works on monitors, tripods, and table tops. Achieve many shot angles with its compact size.

Another great option is the auto-framing BG-EPTZ-AF 4K webcam. It automatically frames all the people in its field of view, centering the image around them. It adjusts the image in real time as people step in and out of the frame. The BG-EPTZ-AF harnesses powerful ISP processing algorithms providing crisp images with even brightness and fantastic color rendition. This 4K webcam mounts on top of your display with simple plug and play connectivity via USB 3.0. USB 3.0 transfers data at a rate 10 times faster than that of the previous USB 2.0 standard. Webcams with USB 3.0 support are perfect for video conferencing in business settings, educators for distance learning, pro gamers, hobbyists, and cam modeling.
