II. How it works?
USB based webcams usually supports dfferent resolutions for video and very often maximum is 640x480 (VGA). But that resolution is not using in most cases, we use only 320x200 or so for online video conferencing purposes, becuase 640x480 is too big for realtime video over the internet. That allows to do zoom and move camera!
CamZoomer is a middleware application between webcam application and real webcam driver. It takes video from real webcam on the maximum allowed resolution and transfers it to webcam application with another dimenions. That allows to do 2x ZOOM without loosing of quality and then using digital zoom it makes zoom up to 8x and it still nice looking. That allows to emulate panning and tilting of camera.
