eMeet C990 USB Webcam Spotlight: Perfect Portability for On-the-Go Conferencing





I was interested to see the latest webcam come out of the eMeet stable and see what improvements have been made to deliver the eMeet C990 USB webcam.

I looked at the eMeet Jupiter webcam in September 2021, and at first glance the eMeet C990 looks incredibly similar to the Jupiter webcam.

The dimensions of the C990 are the same as the Jupiter at 85 x 55 x 60mm and the C990 also looks almost identical to the Jupiter. Both cameras come with a lens cap for privacy and lens protection, and both have a speaker grill on top.

The only difference I can see between the two cameras is that the eMeet C990 lens is silver and the Jupiter is black.

But inside, the C990 has an upgrade. This webcam is a 1080px 60FPS webcam and there is a new light sensor and lens, which is designed to provide a better meeting experience than the eMeet Jupiter 30fps camera.

The C990 has four microphone arrays and a 3W speaker, which when I tested it was more than enough to deliver spoken voice in a large meeting room during a web conference. . This means you don’t need to carry any other microphones and speakers.

To get the most out of the eMeet C990, download the eMeet Link software to your desktop and plug the USB Type-C cable into your device. You must use a fast USB cable (which has a blue end) to power the C990 webcam.

Once the C990 is plugged in, remove the lens cap and adjust the angle of the webcam. This is a simple camera that requires little manipulation to get a good picture.

Using eMeet Link software, you can adjust the camera from 60 to 96 degrees of field of view to zoom in manually to ensure the entire group is in view of the meeting. Unlike the Jupiter, there is no automatic adjustment of field of view or zoom.

Other adjustments in the eMeet Link software video settings include brightness, contrast, sharpness, saturation, and white balance. You can also flip the image horizontally and vertically depending on where you mount the camera. Images are clear and sound is excellent for this pocket webcam.

There is a screw hole for mounting the camera on a tripod and an adjustable foot for changing the angle of the camera.

The eMeet C990 USB Webcam is a simple webcam that, for less than $100, provides an excellent 60 fps video experience. It’s worth adding to your work backpack if you need to quickly set up a hybrid meeting while you’re on the go and provide a good conferencing experience for your remote viewers.
