HD & 4K CAMERAS
Conduct the best video conferences by upgrading to an HD or 4K camera. These specialized cameras are more sophisticated than normal video cameras and webcams. They record clearer and more vivid images.
HD cameras and 4K cameras, though some describe them as just the same because they’re both high-definition, are two different technologies. HD (High-Definition) technology came into trend a decade ago, replacing the old SD (Standard-Definition) technology for cameras and televisions. There are various types of HD, but the clearest are 720p and 1080p HD. 720p HD has a resolution of 1280 pixels in width by 720 pixels in height. 1080p HD has a resolution of 1920 pixels in width by 1080 pixels in height. Most video conferencing hardware devices are HD-ready, so upgrading to an HD camera won’t be a problem.
The 4K, on the other hand, is a newer technology. From the name 4K, this technology has a higher-than-High-Definition resolution of 4000 pixels. Just keep in mind that even to this day, there’s few hardware that can support 4K cameras, so make sure that all the components of your video conferencing system are upgraded to support 4K.
Right now, the most common high-resolution technology used for video conferences are 720p and 1080p HD. However, since technology evolves so fast, it’s always a good thing to consider higher-end upgrades like the 4K.
