Intel is introducing a new camera software suite that could offer cheaper and easier home use in its 4K home video platform.
The new software will be available as a free download to any user who has already registered their home network.
The software is a “new, unified platform for home video,” Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in a blog post on Thursday.
Intel will begin selling the new suite as a standalone product in the fourth quarter of this year.
It will offer three new cam types: cam, cam+camera and cam+lens.
The existing cam+cam+lenses are compatible with all Intel CPUs, but Intel is offering the new cam+cams in a single processor package.
“The cam+compatibility offers a much lower price tag, as well as a more comprehensive set of features and features that can be tailored to meet a wide range of home video use scenarios,” Intel said.
Intel said it plans to launch the new camera suite as part of a $100 million investment in new home video equipment.
Intel has been investing in 4K cameras for years, building products that were first released in 2015 and 2016, but have since become a key feature of Intel’s products, including its X99 platform.
