HuddleCamHD-Air

HuddlecamHD of Downingtown, Pennsylvania has developed and released the very first wireless video conferencing conference room camera. The new wireless camera, named the Huddlecam Air, provides a near zero latency video conferencing connection over USB 3.0 to any modern Mac or PC computer.

Until the Huddlecam Air, conference room users were faced with undesirable and unsightly choices for installing their conference room cameras. The Huddlecam Air eliminates the need for cables between computers located on the conference room table and video conference cameras normally mounted on the front wall. By eliminating cables the installation of video conferencing equipment and cameras is quick, simple and wireless.
