The world’s first 4K60 webcam: Elgato launches Facecam Pro
MILPITAS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Elgato, a leading provider of hardware and software for content creators, today unveiled Facecam Pro, the first-ever webcam capable of 4K capture at 60 frames per second. Boasting a large-area Sony sensor, wide-angle vari-focus photographic lens, revolutionary image processor and built-in flash memory, the premium plug-and-play webcam enables creators to produce Ultra High Definition videos without the need for an elaborate camera set up. This revolutionary technology combined with Elgato’s powerful Camera Hub software makes Facecam Pro the new benchmark in the global webcam industry.
Facecam Pro is equipped with the studio-grade Elgato f/2.0 21mm autofocus lens, which can also be manually adjusted within a focus range of 10cm to infinity. An up to 90-degree field of view enables wide studio shots or group video calls, while the state-of-the-art, large-area 1/1.8″ SONY® STARVIS™ sensor captures exceptional detail, even when using effects such as pan, tilt and zoom, or when lighting is not optimal. Rounding out the webcam‘s high-end performance is Elgato’s latest Image Signal Processor, a one-chip powerhouse that is responsible for encoding and streaming 4K60 video over USB 3.0 with latency ultra-low – while facilitating instant light correction, automatic noise reduction, and a host of other nano-calculations that deliver phenomenal video quality in any environment. Even when using applications that do not support 4K60 video input, the processor applies an advanced algorithm that transforms raw 4K60 video into 1080p60 video, allowing you to stream Full HD video that looks better than with a 1080p webcam standard.
“The launch of Facecam last year was our first step in advancing webcam technology and performance. Facecam Pro represents a leap forward,” said Julian Fest, SVP and GM of Elgato. We didn’t plan to build another webcam. Instead, we decided to build a state-of-the-art camera with plug-and-play connectivity and incredible video quality. Alongside our other webcam products – EpocCam, Cam Link 4K, Cam Link Pro, Facecam – we now offer an incredible suite of solutions for content creators, telecommuters and even professional broadcasters.
