Camo helps solve this problem, using a high quality camera that you probably have in your pocket, an iPhone. With the app, you can use your iPhone as a Mac webcam with any popular video calling service like Zoom. Meet, Teams, Skype, Slack and many more. It is not necessary to execute special commands.
With the system, you can run video up to high resolution 1080p. You can even use hardware and software controls to adjust your image. You can use both a front or rear camera. The app is also available on any iPad.
And with a new update, Camo integrates with the Snap API to bring AR capabilities to your video call.
All users can access AR features. There are more than 12 glasses in the following categories depending on the company:
Focus: Lenses that help users focus on the speaker in streams, with aesthetic techniques such as “portrait mode” and background mute.
Accessibility: Lenses that help streamers and presenters convey visual cues of emotion and reaction more clearly, with face tracking and the use of emoji for face and hand signals.
Masking: Goals to render the user with different degrees of fidelity, such as with a light beauty filter, a reduced color scheme or even in sketch form. These lenses can help reduce presenter overload on feeds, by combating the effects of “zoom fatigue”.
New is a collection of more entertaining lenses from the Snap Lens Creator community, which range from adding a photorealistic cat to the streamer scene to chromatic lighting effects to make them largely invisible.
All AR work is done on your iPhone or iPad, so it won’t slow down your Mac during a call.
The Camo app is free to download from the App Store and is intended for the iPhone or iPad. You’ll also need the Mac version of the app, which is free via the Reincubate developer site here.
While the app is free, you can also subscribe to Camo Pro for $ 4.99 per month or $ 39.99 per year. Subscribers will be able to access all the features of the app and remove the watermark. It can be used on up to two computers.
