Melville, NY—Enabling several of Canon’s EOS cameras to provide video for virtual meetings and livestreaming applications, EOS Webcam Utility software was a lifeline in early 2020. At the time, videoconferencing was imperative for business operations and everyday communication. Now, the company has unveiled EOS Webcam Utility Pro.
Moreover, the upgraded software brings videoconferencing and livestreaming into a new era, where virtual video is vital in everyday life. The original EOS Webcam Utility software was downloaded for free by millions worldwide as hybrid work became the new normal.
When developing this enhanced version of EOS Webcam Utility software, Canon listened to users’ concerns as well as preferences. Consequently, it incorporated feedback heard through social media, customer comments and media inquiries.

EOS Webcam Utility Pro adds a subscription that provides the option to unlock new capabilities. They include multiple camera connections, wireless connectivity, as well as greater camera and content control. New capabilities also feature high-res upscaling in Full HD mode; a maximum frame rate up to 60 frame per sec; and the ability to output to multiple channels simultaneously.
For vloggers, gamers, news anchors, cooking influencers as well as others who rely on video, having multiple camera setups (a front, side and top-down angle) is the key to providing more detail to viewers.
For livestreamers, running multiple channels at the same time can also help them reach larger audiences across YouTube, Facebook Live and other social and streaming channels.
Furthermore, there are now various settings that improve customization possibilities. For instance, there are layout options and transitions between scenes. Plus, watermark insertions can help users preserve the ownership of their content. “Whether for personal or professional use, these new features can take video quality and capability to the next level,” Canon announced.
The basic features of EOS Webcam Utility software are still available for free. They allow users to utilize EOS cameras as webcams with popular web conferencing applications.
However, paid subscriptions to EOS Webcam Utility Pro, which unlock additional special features, entail a monthly subscription for $4.99 per month. Or consumers can opt to pay an annual subscription for $49.99 per year. Moreover, both options offer a 30-day trial period. The software is available exclusively to customers in the USA.
