AnkerWork, a new product line from tech brand Anker, has just released two new devices for users looking to upgrade their remote working setup. For those who are always on video calls or conferences, the PowerConf C300 is an AI-enabled HD webcam that offers full 1080p images. The webcam is equipped with an AI chipset that supports the hardware in producing high-quality images with accurate color reproduction and even boosts performance in low-light environments.
The PowerConf 300 also offers three different field-of-view choices for users who want to narrow or widen the angle of what the webcam can capture. It’s also equipped with smart framing so that users will never fall out of the frame. The webcam is smart enough to determine whether the subject’s movements are deliberate or not so users can still go off-camera if they don’t want others to see them.
Keeping in tune with the quality performance of other PowerConf products, AnkwerWork has announced the PowerConf S500 conference speaker. The device has been upgraded to house four new microphones which make use of the company’s proprietary VoiceRadar technology. Using beamforming and enhanced Digital Signal Processors, VoiceRadar is able to identify and pick up the speaker’s voice while ignoring background noise to provide crystal clear quality.
For more specific needs, the S500’s pickup pattern can be changed through the AnkerWork app. Users can find what pickup pattern works best in the room they’re in so that everyone on the call will be audible. Pickup patterns include a traditional meeting setup, single-user setup, and even a simple live streaming microphone.
The PowerConf C300 Smart, AI webcam is now available through Amazon, Anker, and select retailers for $129.99. The PowerConf S500 conference speaker’s price and availability have yet to be revealed and will be announced at a later date.
