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 upper part of any screen, and we can also fit any type of standard support for mobile phones or cameras on the lower base, this is the option that I have chosen since it is not I will have 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 has a 2K maximum resolution sensor although we can adjust it according to our needs, yes, with capacities of 30 images per second, although it is not that we need more to work or 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 along with two 2W speakers each to offer clear stereo sound when having conversations, all with Auto Echo Cancellation and of course sound cancellation for calls, allowing you to listen only the voice. 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&Play , by this I mean that it will work correctly just by connecting it to the USB-C port of 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 AnkerWork that you can download completely free of charge, in it we will find many options, but the most important thing is the possibility of updating the webcam software and so on. extend your support.

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

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, thus, 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 for 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 in the interlocutors.

In addition, the camera has the Solo Frame system , which is nothing more than a specific monitoring 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.
