A company called RSI has created a webcam capable of displaying real-time video chat with any webcam, with no need for a special set of accessories.
RSI is currently selling the webcam, called the “Vive,” for $1,200, with a two-year warranty, and it’s now available to buy from its website.
There are a number of drawbacks to the Vive, like it only runs on Android and Apple’s iOS.
RSE also plans to add support for a handful of other operating systems in the future.
For now, though, the Vive is a powerful way to take real-world video and audio recordings and stream them over the internet, without having to buy a new PC.
There’s also a webcam, and you can add a microphone and audio jack to the end of the cord.
Rsi’s webcam doesn’t have an Ethernet port, so if you don’t have a wired connection, you’ll need to hook it up to a 3.5mm jack.
The only real downside to the webcam is the price.
RSDi’s website says it’s designed for use with “any digital camera and video device.”
It’s a bit more expensive than the webcam itself, which retails for about $600, and some other companies offer similar devices.
But it’s an option that’s worth considering for anyone looking for a new webcam.
