A complete ecosystem that integrates powerful software with video conferencing accessories to allow users to customize and optimize their video presence.
BURLINGAME, Calif. – April 5, 2022 – Kensington®, the worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business, and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, today announced Kensington Professional Video Conferencing, a new portfolio of conferencing solutions engineered to enable anyone to Communicate Like a Pro from wherever they work. Professional Video Conferencing is a complete ecosystem that integrates powerful software with video conferencing accessories to allow users to customize and optimize their video presence.
A recent workplace trends study conducted by Creative Strategies found that 47 percent of respondents participate in 1-2 hours of video meetings on a daily basis, and 58 percent agreed that meetings are more productive when everyone has a high-quality video presence. Professional Video Conferencing addresses this trend and is the next milestone in Kensington’s 40-year evolution with the computing industry, innovating to provide products and solutions that improve the usability, performance, and safety of computers and mobile devices to meet the changing needs of businesses and consumers.
Powerful Video Conferencing Software for a Custom Video Experience
Kensington Konnect™ video conferencing software is the hub of the Professional Video Conferencing experience. Compatible with most popular video conferencing applications (such as Teams, Zoom, and more), the powerful, feature-rich software enables users to configure how they want to be seen on camera.
Konnect allows users to create and save up to four webcam configurations based on their environment or lighting (day/night), select from various video effects (such as black and white, cool, warm), and further adjust video settings (brightness, contrast, saturation, lowlight, backlight, white balance, exposure, sharpness). Applying these settings in a user’s preferred video conferencing application is as simple as selecting the Kensington camera within the camera settings.
Accessories that Make the Video Conferencing Experience Powerful, Professional and Personal
Working seamlessly with Konnect video conferencing software, Kensington’s unified, plug-and-play video conferencing experience includes high-resolution webcams, a ring light optimized for video conferencing applications, and several mounting solutions that enable users to achieve their most flattering angles.
Kensington’s W2000 1080p Auto Focus Webcam delivers high-quality video (1080p at 30fps), an omnidirectional microphone with noice-reduction technology, low light imaging, and provides a narrow 75 degree diagonal field. The W2050 Pro 1080p Auto Focus Webcam features glass lenses to deliver high-quality video at 1080p with automatic focus in small or larger enviroments, two omnidirectional microphones with noise-reduction technology, a large sensor for low light performance, and provides a wide 93 degree diagonal field of view. Both webcams feature electronic pan, tilt and 2x zoom via Kensington Konnect, and including integrated lens covers.
The L1000 Bicolor Ring Light with Webcam Mount provides optimum brightness to eliminate harsh face shadows in office environments and enables the webcam to be mounted in the center of the ring to ensure consistently perfect light distribution. The USB-A powered L1000 features adjustable color temperatures and brightness levels that are easily changed with the touch of a button.
The A1000 Telescoping C-Clamp, A1010 Telescoping Desk Stand, and A1020 Boom Arm are professional mounts for microphones, webcams, and lighting systems. These flexible mounting solutions keep the workspace organized and enable users to precisely position their video conferencing equipment to achieve the most flattering angles.
"The adoption of remote work, hybrid work, and work-from-home initiatives by companies and organizations of all sizes has fundamentally changed how and where people work,” explained Tim Hill, Global Product Manager at Kensington. “Video conferencing has become the norm for business meetings, attending special events, and remote learning and the way that participants look on camera has a direct impact on how they are perceived. Our Professional Video Conferencing solutions take video conferencing to the next level by allowing users to optimize the way they appear on camera whether in the office, at home, or on the road.”
Kensington’s Professional Video Conferencing portfolio will expand to incorporate a variety of innovative software and hardware products that will enable office, home and mobile workers to Communicate Like a Pro.
