Camcorder acting as USB Webcam for streaming?

Hello there,

I wonder if Sony (or Canon etc) offer camcorders with the capability of using these as PC Webcams (albeit with zoom and manual controls), suitable for streaming in events without necessitating a hardware capture system or a WiFi router?

It seems that in the past Sony offered a USB streaming mode, but I haven't been able to find more in a cursory search.

Cheers,
N.F.

Sony has the instructions online. Now to find a Sony camera with USB streaming port.

If you click on the right for Applicable Cameras they're all old Sony DV cameras.

Wouldn't it be cheaper just to use an HDMI to USB3 convertor?
They range in price from just under $100US to about $300.

At $75 the only cameras you'd find in that price range are webcams themselves. If you already have the camera using a device like this makes sense.

You could use something as a simple Elgato hd60 just connect your HDMI. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Elgato-Ga...frcectupt=true
