BROOKLYN, NY — August 4, 2020 – Gig Gear LLC — manufacturer of accessories designed for AV techs and live entertainment production professionals — has updated the design of its Cam-A-Lot, a dual-sided video conferencing screen that provides a clean background for remote broadcasting, live streaming or teachers and students engaged in distance learning. The dual-sided screen features a white background for a clean look on one side while the opposite side features a green screen that can be used to project a virtual background.
Design updates include a new X-strap design which allows for a more secure mounting and greater adjustability for height placement. The improved X-strap also makes it possible for the Cam-A-Lot to be mounted on practically any chair back, even irregularly shaped chairs. The Cam-A-Lot also now includes dual-plied fabric on the dual-color screen, eliminating almost all light from bleeding through.
Possibly the Cam-A-Lot’s largest update is the new screen shape. The updated shape features a wider top at the user’s “head height,” allowing for wide coverage in the sweet spot of the camera’s view, while tapering towards the bottom. This makes the screen’s form factor slimmer, thus helping it avoid knocking into objects around it.
“The new updates to the Cam-A-Lot will continue to help those currently e-learning from home, working from home or live streaming from their living rooms get the custom backgrounds they desire while blocking out any distractions,” said Danny Shatzkes, founder of Gig Gear. “The screen’s new shape offers users a wider surface for more customization, and the improved X-strap makes for a more secure mount.”
The Cam-A-Lot is 57 inches in diameter. When not in use, it collapses and folds down to a compact 22-inch diameter and can then be packaged in an included tote bag, making it a portable solution so users can have a clean background wherever they may be working.
Cam-A-Lot is available for pre-order and will begin shipping on or around Sept.1. To order or for more information, visit: https://www.gig-gear.com/products/cam-a-lot
