Canon has introduced a software solution that allows select EOS Interchangeable Lens Cameras to function as high-quality USB webcams. As virtual meetings and gatherings become the new norm, you don’t want to be caught in the dark with a low-quality webcam.
Fortunately, the EOS Webcam Utility Beta software was unveiled by Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, for select EOS Interchangeable Lens Cameras (ILC) and PowerShot cameras. To help bring you into the light, this beta version converts your compatible EOS ILC and PowerShot camera through a simple USB connection into a webcam.
Built by Canon software developers, this beta version software helps consumers to improve their video appearance while using popular video conferencing applications in the market, delivering clarity and high-image quality.
The EOS Webcam Utility Beta software solution requires one single USB plug (which may ned to be purchased separately) to connect the camera to a Windows operating systems computer. Once the solution is downloaded and the camera is configured within a video conferencing application, the user will be ready to go.
“In unprecedented times, it’s imperative for Canon to provide our customers with useful, simple, and accessible solutions to assist them in whatever imaging needs they have,” said Tatsuro “Tony” Kano, executive vice president of the Canon U.S.A. Inc. Imaging Technologies & Communications Group. “Out goal is that the EOS Webcam Utility Beta software can help reduce some of the remote workday stress for employees who are tasked with video conferencing and virtual meetings.”
