Those new to creating photo ID badges often inquire about using a basic webcam. While any camera can be used to snap photos for an ID badge, there are advantages to using a professional photo ID camera, according to ID Wholesaler, the leading retailer of photo identification products.
Discover Advanced ID Camera Features
“There are two primary benefits an ID camera offers: time savings and image quality,” explains Jennifer Clancy, marketing manager at ID Wholesaler. “Professional ID cameras communicate with the ID software loaded on your computer to save you the hassle of uploading and cropping photos. Plus, the image quality is exceptional, which is an important part of creating a high-quality ID badge.”
A variety of advanced features are available in most professional ID cameras. For example, you’ll be able to control your camera’s settings and manage your photos right from your computer. For example, you can see a live video feed on your PC monitor and take a picture from your computer with the click of a mouse. After snapping the photo, crop it, save it, and automatically place it you’re your card template in your ID software.
Some ID cameras also offer facial recognition technology to automatically cut and crop the photo to the size needed. With this method, you don’t need to worry that some people will stand too close to the camera while others are too far away. This provides a very consistent look to all employee ID cards.
While the quality of your images can be manipulated in your ID software, image quality is mostly determined by the camera. Professional ID cameras offer superior image quality to ensure that the cardholder’s image will be clearly identifiable.
