Canon on Thursday announced the availability of the EOS Webcam Utility software for Windows. The free software allows compatible Canon cameras to double-up as web cameras.

Using Canon’s software people can easily connect, setup, and start using their existing Canon cameras for thing like video chatting, web conferencing and live streaming.

Canon says, the auto-focus technology in the cameras enhances the video broadcast experience for people with the smooth motion and crisp details. Also, the cameras will be able to offer high resolution output, even in low-light indoor environments.

Further, people will be able to record high-quality video files on the memory card in their camera while video conferencing or streaming, by simply pressing the record button on their camera.
