AnkerWork B600 a webcam for streaming and telecommuting [Review]

Anker continues to work to offer a multitude of alternatives and options in the form of accessories for all types of users, be it with MagSafe chargers, tools and of course, with webcams, one of its branches where it shines the most for the options and quality they offer, That is why on this occasion we return to the fray once again with a product of this type.

We analyze in depth the AnkerWork B600 webcam, a device designed for teleworking and streaming, with light, microphone and speakers. Do not miss it because it is positioned as an interesting alternative to improve your productivity.

Materials and design

This new Anker camera inherits that rectangular design with rounded corners that we are seeing in its previous devices. Although it is true that, as in the rest of Anker's "unboxings", the quality is perceived from the first moment at the construction level, even in accessories such as cables. We have a rear part where we find two USB-C ports, necessary for power and image transmission, as well as a USB-A port that will serve as a dock.. For its part, the surroundings are made of textile, to correctly let out the sound of its integrated speakers.

We have a mobile base that allows us to adjust the webcam to the top of any screen, and we can also fit in the bottom base any type of standard support for mobile phones or cameras, it isThis is the option that I have chosen since I am not going to have it permanently connected to the screen.

The front part is for the lighting LED that opens with a hinge and protects the lens. On the sides we have two touch buttons for the microphone and lighting, something that we can also control from the application itself.

Technical characteristics

This camera hasn 2K maximum resolution sensor although we can adjust it according to our needs, yes, with capabilities of 30 images per second, although it is not that we need more to work or to stream. The sensor size is 1/2.8 inches and it has an automatic exposure system, an automatic white balance system, an automatic focus and a person detection and tracking function, nothing more and nothing less.

On the other hand we have four bidirectional microphones together with two speakers of 2W each to offer a stereo and clear sound when having conversations, all with Auto Echo Cancellation and of course sound cancellation for calls, allowing only the voice to be heard. We conclude that this AnkerWork B600 is quite well equipped on a technical level, although we will talk about its real-time performance later.

Installation and customizable software

In essence, this Anker AnkerWork B600 is Plug and Play, by this I mean that it will work correctly only by connecting it to the port USB-C from our computer. Its artificial intelligence system and autofocus capabilities should be enough for our day to day. However, it is important to have support software, in this case we are talking about Anchor Work that you can download for free, in it we will find many options, but the most important thing is the possibility of updating the webcam software and thus prolonging its support.

In this software we will be able to adjust three viewing angles of 68º, 78º and 95º, as well as selecting between three capture qualities between the various resolutions going through the possibility of adjusting the FPS, activating and deactivating the focus, the HDR and a Anti-Flicker function very interesting when we are being illuminated by LED bulbs, you know that in these cases flickers usually appear that can be annoying, something that we will notably avoid. Despite everything, we will have three default modes depending on our needs that in theory get the most out of Anker's AnkerWork B600.

We recommend you in the event that you have decided on this camera available on the Anker website and on Amazon, that you hurry to install Anker Work and take the opportunity to update the firmware of the camera.

in daily use

This camera has won two awards at CES 2022 and it is precisely because we are facing an “All-in-One”, a device capable of reducing the number of “clunkers” that we have on our desk thanks to bringing them all together in one single. In addition, it works correctly in all areas, in this way, It has become our default camera for the weekly iPhone News Podcast where we share information about current events in the world of technology in general.

This is where it has demonstrated its competence, especially thanks to its LED lighting system that we will be able to graduate between cold and warm tones, since this one that we have just mentioned is precisely the only lighting element used.

The camera has VoiceRadar In the event that we decide to use its microphones, this is nothing more than an external noise cancellation system that clarifies the performance of the call and that in our tests has been shown to be highly effective in eliminating background noise and focusing only on the interlocutors.

In addition, the camera has the system frame only, which is nothing more than a specific follow-up of the person, always keeping them in the foreground. In our tests, it has been shown to be very efficient both at the focus level and with the follow-up itself, something that we have noticed in the development of the tasks.
