Project Telecom Professional HD 1080p Webcam & Bluetooth Speakerphone Bundle Package

If you are working on your webcam at a distance from your screen, then it might be a good idea to have an extra speaker and microphone close to you so that you can stay hands-free, to be able to converse and be heard by your audience. In this case, we’d recommend giving yourself that extra range, and putting a microphone right next to yourself and with a combination bluetooth microphone/speaker. This bundle represents an awesome solution for those needing to present or perform online whilst being at a distance from their webcam.


Best budget webcams?

If you need something simple and standard, just to get you working online, no frills needed, you’re usually just a participant, rather than a host of meetings, then maybe a webcam with lots of features isn’t what is needed. A simple, budget webcam or bundle is all you need so that you can be seen and heard clearly what is being said, without breaking the bank.
