To set up a video conferencing meeting, all you need is a webcam that can provide high-quality images that suit your needs. Today, the market is flooded with webcams ranging from very cheap to hundreds of dollars or more. It can be confusing going through all the options and deciding which one is the best video conferencing solutions for your meeting. So let me give you some guidance on what to look for in a webcam for your conferencing needs.

1. Image quality. You want clear, vivid images that provide clear photos to everyone in your meeting. On the other hand, it can distract people, when they are forced to look at a grainy image that doesn't quite represent what you're trying to send them. You may have to pay a little more for a camera with decent image quality, but it can make video conferencing a much more enjoyable experience for all participants if you invest in high image quality.
2. Some meeting rooms may have dim lighting. So, be sure to inquire about the camera's ability to produce quality images even in these situations. Some cameras don't capture many images at all without a brighter backlight.
3. What features will you actually use? There are different models of most webcams, with different versions available with different features and prices. If you really don't want to use the advanced features, you can go with the previous model which offers less but still provides high-quality images.
4. How easy is it to set up and use it? Most webcams will run into some trouble trying to set them up and work properly, so a little research on the best settings can prevent problems in the long run.
