Everything You Need to Know About HUE Cameras

As a HUE Premier Partner, we've got all the details about HUE products. This fantastic technology is easy to set up and use right away, though you may need to answer a few questions before your administration will approve the purchase. Take a look at these FAQs to get familiar with the product and software so you can make the best decision for your school or classroom.

Video Chatting with the HUE HD Camera

The HUE HD Pro camera is designed to easily integrate into any video software you’re already using. Whether you hold meetings via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet (Hangouts), FaceTime, or Skype™, you can get up and running quickly. As long as the software is compatible with a USB camera, you’ll be good to go! All you have to do is choose the software, download from their website and setup, making sure to choose HUE for your camera and microphone settings.

Download and Install HUE Intuition Software

Each HUE HD Pro comes with the HUE Intuition software to help capture, edit, and share images and video. You can download this for Windows and Mac OS from the HUE website along with common line switches for silent installation on a school network.

Since most newer computers do not have CD drives, a software CD is no longer included. Instead, you’ll download the software from the HUE website through your free huehd.com account. You can then enter the activation code from the back page of the user guide that’s included with your purchase.

For those using HUE Intuition 2.0 or later (for Windows or Mac OS 10.9+), you won’t need the activation code for installation, but it will allow you to register your software for support and updates. If you are working on an older Mac OS X, you’ll need the activation code to download HUE Intuition 1.7 as a compatible version instead of the newer HUE Intuition 2.0.

Using the HUE HD Pro Camera

The HUE HD Pro document camera has a manual focus ring around the lens. Turn this left or right until the picture is sharp. If you move the camera closer or further away, it will need to be refocused. If you have issues with your camera not working, the HUE website has several resources to help you troubleshoot. In case the worst happens, all devices include a 2-year warranty for peace of mind.

The camera can be used without the HUE Intuition software, in case you are unable to download it or prefer to use another video streaming software like AMCap. Windows 10/11 users can also use the built-in Microsoft Camera app, while those running macOS or Mac OS X 10.6 or later would be advised to use the built-in version of QuickTime for their video recordings.

The HUE HD Pro camera has been screened in accordance with RoHS Directive (2011/65/EU) and undergone EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) testing pursuant to EMC Directive 2014/30/EU, meeting the requirements of EN 55032: 2015 + A1:2020 (Class B), and EN 55035: 2017 + A11:2020. It has been tested to the UKCA standard for Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulations 2016 (S.I. 2016/1091). It has also been independently tested and met the requirements for Phthalates and Total Lead Content in Computer and Electronics Accessories under California Proposition 65.
