The demand for remote cameras to stream live events, plus video conferencing in office and corporate environments, has rocketed massively since the pandemic. Many sectors have embraced the new possibilities offered by a PTZ infrastructure including higher education, concerts, theatre and houses of worship.
Thanks to Canon’s new Webcam Driver1, which is available on Windows OS, it’s easy to set up PTZ cameras for high quality streaming, webcam functionality, longer cabling options via LAN, auto camera detection and the ability to register multiple cameras.
4K 30p output
Via LAN and the new USB driver, users can now utilise the CR-N300, CR-N500 and CR-X300 for video streaming up to 4K 30p2, with further flexibility of where the camera can be located when connected to a PC.
Automatic Camera Detection
The new software will detect compatible Canon PTZ cameras that are on the same network as the PC. This enables easy set-up of the cameras for users to identify which cameras they’d like to register to the software.
Register multiple cameras
You can register up to five cameras to the software, so depending on the installation it’s possible to easily select which one to use from the PC.
