The folks at TCL have a replacement kind of camera that’s made specifically for TCL TVs. TCL makes Google TV and Android TV television sets that are relatively low in cost and have straightforward functionality. With the TCL Full HD USB Camera, the corporate wants users to upgrade their television receiver with the power to form video calls with relative ease.
The TCL Full HD USB Camera (model C2D) works with a USB cord included within the box. This USB cord takes up one USB slot on a TCL TV with Google TV or Android TV. The camera attaches to a TCL TV with a magnet, making it simple to put in or move.
This camera works with “popular apps like Google Duo,” and likely whatever other video chat apps are available on Google TV or Android TV. The camera works with a stereo mic array (two microphones), with “3D noise reduction” for what we expect to be clear audio capture and video calling.
The camera itself is 3.5 x 0.9 x 1 inch large, with a 1.5-inches tall camera stand. The USB cable that comes with the camera may be a whopping 4.7-feet long. The camera’s resolution is Full HD, also referred to as 1080p. The lens on the camera delivers a 70-degree field of view when in use and may be covered by a physical “privacy cover” when not needed.
The TCL Full HD USB Camera was released in the week for roughly USD 80. It’s not yet clear which stores will have the TCL Full HD USB Camera purchasable, but the likelihood is that you’ll find it wherever the Google TV and Android TV sets from TCL are available. Take a peek at the timeline below for more information on the TV sets that’ll support this camera.
