While webcams have become even more important in the recent times, for years Mac users who care about picture quality in their video calls and livestreams have relied on third-party webcams, as the ones that ship integrated with desktop Macs and MacBooks only offer 720p video.
The WyreStorm FOCUS 210 AI Webcam fulfils the needs of Mac users who want high resolution and smart features from their webcam. This webcam features a 4K ultra-wide angle that sends out an amazingly sharp and video and is great for recording videos.

This webcam packs the Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology that enables it to enhance high-contrast lighting environments. WDR also allows FOCUS 210 to capture clear details in dim as well as very bright areas.
FOCUS 210 is capable of streaming 4K ultra video footage at 30fps. It can also stream 1080p footage at 60fps and 720fps at 90fps.

This means you can type as loud as you want, stop worrying about your baby crying in the next room or without turning off the fan during your video conferences. The webcam is able to effectively filter out unwanted noises, so the person the other end can hear and understand your every word.
In fact the microphone and noise cancellation on this webcam is so good that I did not have to connect my external mic for video calling or recording tutorials.
