COVID-19 brought the world on its knees starting from 2020 restricting outdoor movement and starting a brief era of work from home. This work from home culture relies heavily on video calling for communication. Also online video platforms have boosted the need for video recording which requires video recording and uploads.
The problems with video calling and video recording include maintaining phone alignment and position. User needs to either hold phone in one arm to record or place on a stand on the desk which can record video from bottom up showing users face chin up and ceiling in background. Another issue is face lighting along with charging issue created by charging cable length limitation.
This smart video calling stand provides the following advantages:
- Phone height adjustment upto 35 centimeters
- Phone Alignment adjustment
- Universal phone holder for all smartphone compatibility
- LED Light for smooth face lighting
- USB Charging Port
- LED Dimming Adjustment
The video calling/video recording stand is made using a strong round base with a steel rod for durability with a soft light dimmable led. The rod allows for height adjustment of the mobile phone holder as per user desires.
The smartphone holder also allows for alignment adjustment. The stand has an LED panel mounted on top of the stand for lighting. The LED brightness can be dimmed by using a variable resistor pot provided on the bottom of stand.
The stand consists of a power input socket with an adapter having a long wire to provide dc supply to the stand. The input power is passed through voltage convertor to power the LED and through a separate voltage converter to bring it to 5V and supply it to the USB port. The USB port can then be used to power the mobile phone through charging cable.
The stand solves all problems associated with video calling and video recording including height adjustment allowing for a face aligned video calling with proper lighting and nearby charging port so low battery doesn’t disturb your video call/recording.
