True video streamers, would be fully aware of the popular C920 webcam and probably acknowledge it as an icon model for webcams. It’s been mounted on almost every streamer’s computer since the past five years and is an essential for every novice-to-pro vlogger, Twitch user or Youtuber.On September 29th at TwitchCon in San Diego, Logitech unveiled the C922 that inhibits most features of its predecessor C920, along with some of its own new and improved ones.
The most attention-worthy is the background removal feature. this device is also the lynchpin of the upcoming – Razer’s RealSense camera ‘the Stargazer’ which is qualified to transform hobby-level videos to high-quality, professional ones.
“Social video platforms such as Twitch have exploded in the past few years, and with more than 2 million streamers on that platform alone, the way this new generation of gamers play and learn about games has forever changed,” mentioned Guillaume Bourelly, portfolio and product manager of webcams at Logitech in a press release “With the C922 Pro Stream Webcam, we are taking game casting to the next level so you can easily broadcast your gameplay like a pro, better engage with your community, and stand out from the crowd.”
Back in the days, to isolate a streamer from the background, users needed to go through the hassle of constructing a green setup and not to mention a costly one. The at least $50 of equipment was a cause of a lot of distress for dilettantes plus the whole lot of space it needs to be set up.
The C922 overcomes this problem by a process known as “intelligent shape recognition,”. Princiaplly, it detects a human figure in the picture, crops it out and places it in a new background or just leaves it transparent and there you go, the cheapest green screen effect sans the green screen.
Centering the characteristics of the C992, it has the ability to capture at 720p, 60 frames a second while the C920 was locked to 720p and 1080p images at 30 frames per second. So, with the prevalence of 60 frames per second, the C922 is going to be most popular among the video streaming niche. Other facets that the device C922 offers are advanced low-light correction, stereo audio capture, a 3 or 6 month XSplit Premium license, relying on whether you purchase it from BestBuy or Amazon.
‘With automatic low light correction and sharp autofocus, the C922 webcam adjusts to flickering room lights or multiple computer screens, so you can stream clear video even in dim lighting. And, no matter what angle you broadcast from, two omnidirectional noise cancelling microphones enable a crisp stereo audio with no-drop streaming and recorded video.”
There’s no doubt in declaring Logitech’s device pricing trait as their biggest coup. Logitech is all set to launch the C922 at $99. Seems like a good year for YouTubers and streamers.
