    Used this for the first time for our church service. Worked great right out of there box with OBS software. Good presets. Fast or slow zoom. Used the backlight which was good. Major upgrade from what we had. Great picture quality . - December 6, 2020

    The only choice to make for a great conference camera. Outstanding video conference camera. Great picture quality with smooth slow and fast zooming. Extremely versatile in setting preset camera shots. A great investment for the novice or professional user. - July 10, 2020

    I was worried this camera was not going to measure up since the price was lower than the higher rated USB PTZ cameras that are 3x the price. This camera performed so well I bought a 2nd one. Camera is being used to live stream Church services from a 300-400 seat auditorium. It is locate in the balcony 75-100 feet from the stage and the optical zoom is perfect for all areas of the stage including close ups of speakers at the podium. Not using audio from the camera so I can't speak to it's quality, but the video is exceptionally clear. PTZ functions are simple to control using the included remote and also using camera control in the streaming software (OBS). Auto focus works extremely well and is stable. Camera stores 10 preset locations including zoom level and is spot on repetitive when selected from a single remote button press. - June 30, 2020

    This camera is used within our Association for meetings and classes that are transmitted via Zoom. The camera has become a vital resource and has been working exceptionally well for us. - P. Beckett, June 23, 2020

    I use a web cam everyday at work. I thought my old one was really good but this camera has blown my mind! It's crystal clear even at 30 fps. I'm pushing it through a Macbook Mid-2012. - T. Decker, January 5, 2019

    We purchased this camera to as a primary camera for our Zoom conference room. We use Zoomroom software and a small ASUS media server computer on the back of one of two large monitors. The motion of the camera is great. The picture is superb. It needs a computer fast enough to process its full resolution for quality live streaming or conferencing. The zoom has two speeds which are very useful. We really appreciate the quality of the device and its performance. We had one mechanical issue when installing it. Go Electronic's staff were very responsive and helped us completely solve the problem onsite, quickly. We appreciated their help. Would recommend device and company. - K. Parker, June 25, 2018
