Link uses Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) and auto exposure technology. Users also have full control over settings for brightness, exposure, white balance, etc. through the use of the companion Link Controller software.

The ISO can be adjusted from 100-3200 ISO. The minimum distance that the AF will work at is 10cm / 4″ to ∞. The white balance can be manually changed from 2000-10000K.

Link’s AI-powered features make life easier for webcam users in a number of ways. The 3-axis gimbal lens uses AI tracking to follow the user’s movement, keeping them centered at all times. There is also automatic framing and zooming.

eCommerce Livestreaming

For adjustments from a distance, Link responds to gesture controls. Using simple hand gestures, users can enable AI tracking, zoom in and out, and activate other camera modes.
