The Logitech’s new webcam C920 was a successful device for five years, and now C922 webcam is expected to take its place. The older model occupied an important position in customer’s choices top, being of help for YouTubers and Twitch users. The release of the new device was recently announced in San Diego at TwitchCon. The C922 webcam promises to bring some extra features for Logitech’s previous device.
The most essential are the background relocations. This also constitutes the anchor of Razer’s RealSence camera called Stargazer, which will soon be available on the market. Initially, to isolate a user form the background you needed a screen setup which costs extra, about $50. This was an unnecessary investment for the enthusiasts.
The C922 webcam automatically has this incorporated in its software, without you needing to pay extra. This software is powered by Personify. Basically, this webcam is capable of detecting the human face and then it erases it out of the background. After this procedure, you can choose another image as your background, this being the result of an affordable green screen.
It is important for customers to know that this inexpensive green screen essence is different from the one Stargazer or other RealSense webcams offer. The webcams issued by RealSense are provided with two lenses which make possible the 3D notion. After this, the webcam makes a distinction between the background and the foreground by measuring which object is located further than others.
Logitech argues that their C922 webcam is even better than RealSense ones. That is a bold statement which will trigger customer’s curiosity when the Stargazer webcam will be available on the market, starting with next month. The C922 webcam can capture 60 frames in a second at 720p. This amazing webcam was confined at 1080p and 720p at 30 photos per second, having increased the preponderance to 60 photos per second on YouTube.
Another advantage of Logitech’s new C922 webcam is that it provides better low-light rectification, a 3 to 6 months XSplit Premium license and a better stereo audio capture. Even if there are different opinions on C922 webcam and the Stargazer, their properties are equivalent on paper. The price of the C922 will be of $99, $50 lower than the Razer’s webcam. The pricing could be enough to attract more customers.
