This is a 2K QHD webcam for professional users with several tools for improving image and audio quality.

Starting today, you can buy the Dell Pro Webcam for $135 through the Dell website. We’ll have to judge it by hand, but based on its specs, the Dell Pro Webcam looks to be one of the best webcams for a Windows PC.
According to Dell, the Sony STARVIS sensor inside the Dell Pro webcam, combined with digital overlay HDR and face detection auto exposure, delivers crisp images. Webcams often struggle with a lot of light behind the subject. Dell Pro webcams are designed to work better in these types of situations.
