A major upgrade to enable high-quality HD video and stereo audio output (plus control) via the camera's USB connector is now available. This free upgrade effectively transforms the camera into a super-webcam" for lectures/event capture and a wide-range of other USB-centric applications. This new upgrade is available in October at no charge to all current HE2 owners; all new units shipped from October onwards will come already equipped with these new features. The HE2's video and audio over USB output is compatible with Microsoft Lync and other common programs that support USB lecture/meeting capture, audio/video recording, and videoconferencing—including Skype, Adobe Connect, Microsoft Graphedit, and Panopto. Full HD video is output via USB in MJPEG up to a maximum of 1080/30P.
