Dell has introduced a new high-end 4K webcam that is supposed to outperform the competition in terms of image quality as well as the supported features – Dell 4K webcam with Windows Hello support, a magnetic lid, and artificial intelligence, a lot is offered.
The Logitech Brio 4K (approx. $196 on Amazon) has a new competitor with the Dell UltraSharp webcam because Dell promises first-class image quality. For this purpose, the company relies on an 8.3 megapixel Sony STARVIS CMOS sensor, which can take 4K recordings at 24 or 30 frames per second.
The field of view can be adjusted by the user, with a choice of 65 degrees, 78 degrees, and 90 degrees. The camera offers a five-fold digital zoom as well as artificial intelligence that can adjust the image section so that the user always remains in the picture. With “Digital Overlap HDR” the Dell 4K webcam should be able to display a particularly high dynamic range, while noise reduction improves the quality in low light.
Another practical feature is the infrared sensor, which enables login via face recognition via Windows Hello. If you use a Dell computer, the proximity sensor has another exciting function, namely the ability to automatically lock the computer when you leave the workplace and unlock it again when you return. The camera is held magnetically, either on a monitor stand or on a tripod. The connection to the computer and the power supply is made via a USB-C cable.
