The Cyber Acoustics Essential Webcam 1080P 5MP brings out the best you


How much would you expect to pay for a good webcam? The Cyber Acoustics Essential Webcam 1080P 5MP is out now, is Zoom-certified, makes you look good with rich colours, but yet comes in under US$60.

Cyber Acoustics has surprised iTWire before with big-on-features, low-on-cost audio-visual equipment. Their latest webcam, the Cyber Acoustics Essential Webcam 1080P 5MP - or more formally known as model WC-3000 - brings the goods again.

It builds on Cyber Acoustics' existing Webcam range, the WC-2000 and WC-2000-2, which cater to home, school, and offices. Those models provide 1920x1080, 1280x720, and 640x480 resolutions at 2.0MP. The brand new big brother, the WC-3000, is aimed at the professional workplace and ramps the specs up to 5.0MP, and a max resolution of 2592x1944 at 30fps, along with dual omnidirectional microphones.

All models are USB cameras with a 65-degree field-of-view, an integrated privacy shutter, auto low-light correction, and auto-focus.

The WC-2000-2 and the WC-3000 are Zoom certified so you know they'll provide flawless operation in your conferencing.

The WC-3000 has a recommended retail price of $US 59.99.

Now, I could list specifications but you have to see the camera in operation to truly appreciate it. In my own situation, I've been using a Microsoft HD Lifecam which I thought was just fine. However, I did also note the sunlight through my window landed on my face and short of shutting my curtains and sitting in darkness, I thought that was simply how life was supposed to be.

Until I plugged in the WC-3000 Cyber Acoustics Essential Webcam 1080P 5MP this morning.

Here's what my colleagues used to see:


This is what they see now:


There is no trick here. The top photo is my previous webcam; the bottom is the Cyber Acoustics WC-3000. I'm sitting in the same chair, using the same monitor, and the images were taken literally seconds apart, the only difference being I switched from one camera to the other.

You can see for yourself in this video:

Now I am more conscious than ever before of my appearance and I dare not show up to meetings so scruffy ever again! The richness of colours, the removal of the sunlight blurring my features, and the sharpness of the image are in stark contrast to my previous old faithful high-def webcam.

 There is more I could tell you; the unit has a solid, durable, robust feel; the privacy shutter is simple to operate; the base is flexible and expandable to clip onto monitors or desks or other things. Yet, in this case, pictures tell a thousand words - the proof is in the evidence on screen. I'm impressed; the camera has the professional-grade smarts and technology to bring out the best you for the camera, but at a price that is most certainly wallet-friendly.
