BenQ introduces ‘ideacam’, a versatile device combining a webcam and document camera. Designed to meet the demands of creative professionals, it offers top-notch video conferencing and presentation capabilities. Recently, BenQ unveiled the GW90QT QHD Eye-care Monitors.
The BenQ ideacam is a powerful dual-mode webcam, available in two models – ideacam S1 Pro and ideacam S1 Plus. It offers four shooting modes: Portrait, Desk view, Hand Held, and Macro, enabling users to showcase their creativity effortlessly. The ideacam delivers high-end image quality with an 8MP Sony sensor and a maximum resolution of 3264x2488p.
It provides near 4K clarity, four times sharper than 1080P, and features a purpose-built 4:3 aspect ratio for optimal desktop and object shooting. The 15X Macro lens captures incredible detail, and the integrated Ring Light illuminates dark surfaces. With an integrated noise-cancelling microphone, the ideacam has everything professional creators need.
The BenQ Enspire software enhances the ideacam’s functionality, allowing easy display of documents, objects, and images. It offers features like image freeze, zoom, live annotation, and measurement display.
