Canon's Webcam Driver will be available free-of-charge starting in early June 2022.
Canon has launched Webcam Driver, a new free-of-charge software for Windows that allows three models of Canon 4K PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras to be used as webcams.
Canon’s new Webcam Driver software is compatible with the CR-N500, CR-N300, and CR-X300 4K PTZ cameras. By simply connecting the cameras via IP to a Windows PC with the Webcam Driver installed, the cameras can be operated as webcams.
Users of the CR-N500, CR-N300, and CR-X300 4K PTZ cameras can adapt to new communication styles in the “new normal” and beyond by utilising video streaming for such events as online meetings, classes and worship services.
Additionally, Canon is announcing the Mac OS supported Search Tool software. This software was previously only available for Windows systems. The Search Tool software is used during PTZ setup and configuration. When the software is utilised it will search the network for existing Canon IP supported PTZ cameras and quickly provide information about the camera such as IP address, model name and serial number – making it easy for the installer to set up.
Canon will showcase its latest digital imaging solutions and products at the NAB Show 2022.
