The Live Streamer Cam PW513 webcam fully meets these requirements.

In addition to adjusting picture parameters, using funny stickers, and adding filters, AVerMedia also developed new ePTZ and AI motion tracking functions. Both of these features are for those who want more professional and engaging content for their audience. Zooming in on a subject while shooting can cause problems and affect the quality of the video produced, for example, increased graininess or not being in the frame of a video conference participant. The ePTZ function allows you to set presets for different parts of the digital zoom from the 4K sensor.
AI motion tracking automatically adjusts the composition in the frame, tracking the face and movements of the user so that they fit perfectly into the frame. Therefore, there will be no need to stay in one place or constantly adjust the position of the camera to remain in the center of the frame.
CamEngine Lite System software is compatible with devices running Windows 10 and macOS 10.14 or 10.15.AVerMedia Live Streamer Cam PW513 comes with a USB 3.0 Type-C to Type-A cable and a Quick Start Guide.
