7th January 2021

Key Digital has released a new version of the free advanced USB camera control software, KD-CAM, specifically engineered for use with KD-CAMUSB. The KD-CAM application excels as a user-friendly camera control and preview, and may be used on its own or while concurrently running video editing or conferencing software.

The new lower thirds feature includes single or dual lined text with optional semi-transparent grey shape. For video professionals looking for more dynamic lower thirds, a PNG image of their choosing may be imported and positioned as desired, allowing the polished addition of company logos within this free camera operating software.

KD-CAM control options include up to nine camera presets plus customisable home and privacy presets, pan, tilt, zoom, resolution adjustment, left/right reverse, picture flip, and pan speed and the advanced properties controls include brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, gamma, white balance, backlight compensation, gain, exposure, low light compensation, and anti-flicker adjustments.

When KD-CAMUSB is in use alongside video conferencing or broadcast software, camera operators may simply open the KD-CAM software to access the same control options available via the KD-CAMUSB remote, RS-232 control, or the KD-App with the addition of advanced controls options. The built-in USB control cleverly reduces the necessity and hassle of additional wires.

Operators may simultaneously control the camera via the KD-CAM software and KD-CAMUSB, RS-232 control, or KD-App control. KD-CAM features automatic deference to a newly opened software using the connected KD-CAMUSB. The software itself can be customised on screen for use with multiple windows and the on-screen control features may be minimised or expanded as needed.

The free KD-CAM PC software is now available for download from the Microsoft Store.
