Lumens Introduces the VC-B20U HD PTZ USB Camera

Lumens Integration has announced the VC-B20U HD PTZ USB camera, a video camera that supports USB 3.0 and provides non-compressed and no latency 1080p/60pfs video.

Lumens said the UVC/MJPEG video format and video resolution/frame rate can be changed instantly for better compatibility and performance. The camera can be controlled remotely by software through USB and RS-232 and is applicable for videoconferencing, event recording and other environments.

Unlike other cameras in the market, the VC-B20U doesn’t need a capture card to connect to a computer. The camera supports the UVC standard and no additional drivers are needed for installation. This simplifies the use of videoconferencing and offers a better experience.

The camera comes with a 5x optical zoom lens and has a panoramic 70 degree horizontal view angle. This USB 3.0 plug and play camera is compatible with videoconferencing software platforms and works effortlessly with operating systems such as Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Chrome OS and Android.

The VC-B20U HD PTZ USB camera will be available in the first quarter and is priced at $1275.00. A VC-AC03 wall mount accessory is also available for purchase.
