INOGENI introduced the all-new U-CAM, a USB 3.0/2.0 converter that enables you to connect USB camera and audio to HDMI input for your CODEC, matrix or display with embedded audio. This versatile solution, perfectly suitable for professional videoconferencing installations, has multiple functionalities, such as a video loop on USB 2.0 with high-quality MJPEG and a connection control via RS-232 or LAN.

INOGENI addresses one of the fastest-growing needs in the market

The global growth of videoconferencing and professional systems requires high-performance installations in which the user experience is the top priority, to facilitate seamless collaboration and offer the most immersive environment possible—despite the distance that separates all users.

“We know that the fleet of professional installations is mainly made up of HDMI video input for CODECs, such as Cisco, Poly, Crestron and Extron," Gilles Chouinard, president and CTO at INOGENI, said. "However, the extensive supply of USB cameras continues to grow, with advanced functionalities that are highly sought-after for videoconferencing users. That’s why INOGENI, a leader in video technology for all types of protocols, has responded to market demand by designing the U-CAM converter to be robust as well as easy and worry-free to use."

Connect the Huddly Canvas to Cisco Webex Room Series 

The popularity of smart whiteboards in business and educational institutions continues to grow. They are becoming an essential tool for complex presentations, teaching, and creative collaboration. The Huddly Canvas AI camera allows the writing hand and arm to be erased and thus ensures full visibility on the board. Most professional videoconferencing systems and CODECs, like the Cisco Webex Room Series, are equipped with only HDMI inputs for cameras. The U-CAM solves the problem of interoperability instantly, thereby allowing the image of the Huddly Canvas USB camera to be converted into the HDMI format, taking advantage of all the camera’s advanced features.
