Industry’s Only Sub-$1,000 Camera Built for Workgroups of Six to Twenty People
June 2, 2015, Fremont CA – AVer Information Inc., a leading provider of innovative educational and business technology solutions, announced today the launch of the AVer VC520, an advanced all-in-one video and audio USB conference camera system designed for workgroups of six to twenty people that need the power of professional full 1080p video capabilities in a package costing under $1,000. The VC520 is the first conference camera to cater to workgroups of this size.
Users can flexibly operate the VC520 with all their favorite videoconferencing applications including WebEx, Google Hangouts, Skype, GoToMeeting, Skype for Business (Lync), and Zoom. As a plug and play device, the VC520 bypasses many of the challenges of traditional videoconferencing solutions such as clumsy setup processes, dealing with firewall issues, and software downloads.
One touch customization comes to life with the VC520’s ten camera presets. With a click of the remote, the device can move from person to person seamlessly without interruption. Details are brought to life with the 12x optical zoom, which smoothly pans, tilts, and zooms to capture whiteboard content and product demonstrations. The VC520 eliminates the sad sight of workers huddling over a single conference speakerphone. A speakerphone is included with the system and allows users to “daisy chain” another speakerphone for amazingly wide coverage to large rooms.
“Only a small percentage of companies currently have professional videoconferencing capabilities, but this will need to change as the workforce evolves,” said Kevin Dorgan, National Sales and Marketing Manager of AVer Information Inc. “The big shift is the rise of Millennials in the workplace who will account for more than 46% of the workforce by 2020. This is a generation that grew up with the Internet and instant access to video content. They’re used to such tools in their social lives and expect the same capabilities in the business world. It’s a changing marketplace, and our cost-effective VC520 is the perfect device to meet this generational need for simple visual-based communication.”
Busy users can be rest assured their investment is protected with AVer’s industry-leading three-year warranty for the VC520 (in the U.S. and Canada). For U.S. customers, this comes with a 72 – hour advanced replacement program within the first year meaning that AVer will replace any products that should happen to break. A U.S.-based technical support line provides fast and accurate advice for any product inquiries. All of these white glove services come at no cost to the customer.
