HP on Thursday introduced a new 34-inch All-in-One Desktop PC with hardware and software designed to help users create, record and share studio-quality video. The new device supports capabilities like dual video streaming and camera switching, which allows you to show yourself and your work at the same time. 

“We’re spending a lot of time on video calls, and we’re all creating content to share remotely in person and with co-located teams,” Gretchen Irion, HP’s director of education and commercial desktops product management, said in a presentation. “But also how we show up for these remote engagements has become part of your personal brand, and part of your company’s brand.” 

It comes with a detachable, magnetic 16MP (4MP Binned) camera that you can move around on the screen bezel to find the best field of view. For instance, you could point it towards your desk to share notes or documents. Users have the option to add a second detachable camera to support dual video streams and camera switching.

In terms of software, the PC’s new HP Keystone Correction automatically crops and flattens the image of the camera feed. This will give you a crisper digital image of pages or a whiteboard, for improved real-time sharing.

There’s also a new HP Be Right Back feature that lets you change your video feed to a still feature, allowing you to take a break during video calls.
