The Best Conference Room Webcam For Your AV Installation
A conference room webcam that doesn’t work well can change the mood of a meeting. Blurry video feeds or cameras that don’t auto-zoom can leave attendees who join virtually feeling disconnected from those in the room.
With the following shortlist of top conference room camera performers, you’ll have no problem finding the best of the bunch for your next audio video (AV) installation.

Panasonic AW-HE38H HD
This Panasonic webcam is pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ), which means that as different people in a conference room speak or walk around, the camera can be moved to focus on them.
This feature takes the experience of virtual participants to another level, making them feel engaged as the camera mimics their head and neck movements as if actually in the room.
Lumens’ conference room webcam also has PTZ functionality and has auto-tracking capabilities built into the camera itself.
Auto-tracking makes it easy for remote viewers to feel more engaged and see all the members that are taking part in the meeting.
The experts at Aspen Custom Electronics also recommend QSC’s conference room camera for Zoom and other virtual meeting settings.
Paired with the Sennheiser microphone, this camera can tell where sound in a room is coming from to zoom in on the correct speaker. It is a good option if you're looking for the best video conference camera for a large room.
4K NDI® Webcam
HuddleCam’s 4K webcam is network device interface (NDI) compatible, making it an incredibly useful asset for those also working utilizing a tricaster system in other parts of the building, such as Houses of Worship, Government facilities, etc. Because it’s NDI compatible, you can control the camera from that system.
Panasonic’s AW-UE4WGA is a high-quality still webcam that produces a sharp picture in rooms of all types. You can use this camera on a desktop or mount it to capture and stream video and audio with its built-in microphone.
Vaddio’s IntelliSHOT is a new auto-tracking webcam that makes video collaboration more engaging. PTZ functionality allows it to follow speakers around the room and is adjustable based on room conditions and user preference.
This Creston webcam is built into a sound bar, meaning that the camera, speakers and microphone are all included in one unit. This makes it incredibly easy to install and supports a minimal room design since you only need to mount one piece of equipment under a television.
Choose a conference room webcam that keeps meeting participants engaged.
Ultimately, the bells and whistles behind the technology aren’t what matters — it’s whether or not the work gets done in the conference room. Ensure all virtual meeting participants stay engaged with those in-person, and any presentation content, with a camera that focuses on what’s most important at any given moment.
