Q. I'm looking for a few options/recommendations for a Conference Camera for a small group of 5-8 people that is plug and play that doesn't require a lot of setup, or that is very simple to operate.
Good news! All of our HuddleCamHD Cameras are plug and play. Then depending on what kind of options you need in terms of zoom or audio, the 3X and 10X are our most basic options. They come in both USB 2.0 or 3.0 models. Our basic 3X models are $399.00. The 10X model starts at $699.00 for the USB 2.0. We also have a 3XA that has a built in mic which is $599.00.
