Before our review focuses on in-depth details about the product, let us check its packaging. The company kept things simple. They shipped the product in a white package with an image of the Meet 4k and company branding.

Review – Design and Functionality
We compared this product with other 4k webcams for this OBSBOT Meet 4k Review. Interestingly, it is smaller, compact, and more lightweight at 72g and 56 x 44 x 32mm. Its impressive design and elements allow it to capture 3840 x 2160 videos.
The product also had a premium feel because of its rounded edges and matte finish. Despite its looks, the company ensures it is robust and solid.
Since OBSBOT opted for a minimalist design, you will not find many physical controls on the product. However, its status button
When you adopt a minimalist design, you will notice the absence of numerous physical controls. However, one essential button demands your attention – the status button.
The status button is at the top and serves as a multi-purpose element. It works as a sleep, Auto Framing, and virtual background button. Thanks to this ingenious piece, you can access these functions without navigating the accompanying app.
During our tests for this OBSBOT Meet 4k Review, its light indicator notifies you of its status/feature in use.
A handy light indicator on one of the top front corners of the webcam provides information about its status. It also states which feature is currently activated.
At the bottom, you will find a female tripod thread. It lets you mount it on a tripod or a gimbal for added stability.
Additionally, there is a privacy cover available. But since it is small and detachable, always keep it in a safe place to avoid misplacing it.

OBSBOT Meet 4k System Requirements
macOS 10.13 or later
Windows 7/later (Windows 8.1 or higher required for resolutions that are greater than 1080p)
Being a plug-and-play device, you do not need any initial setups before using the Meek 4K. This well-crafted webcam is conveniently designed to ensure its user-friendliness.
During our tests, the webcam performed seamlessly upon plugging it in. We did not see any firmware or compatibility issues, which was excellent.
One feature became our favourite during our tests for this OBSBOT Meet 4k Review. Specifically, it is the ability to snap magnetically to its mount.
You will also notice that the webcam sports a magnetic base for landscape mode. It also has a magnetic side to allow portrait mode.
But what sets it apart from its competitors is its auto-orientation functions. It allows the webcam to adjust footage based on its physical orientation.
OBSBOT Webcam App
The OBSBOT Webcam app has an intuitive interface with many settings to enhance your videos. You can change the field of view, adjust the exposure to set a specific mood or set a focus lock.
Although the settings are not highly extensive, it has many customisation options. Switching Auto Framing off allows changing the frame, choosing the field of view, and panning the camera.
One of the best things about this app is its user-friendliness. Despite having many customisable settings, finding what we needed was easy, thanks to the clean layout of the interface.
Installing the OBSBOT Webcam app requires Windows 10 (64-bit), macOS 11.0, and later versions.
Performance of the OBSBOT Meet 4k
The f/2.2 aperture camera and 1/2.8-inch Sony sensor of the Meet 4k worked perfectly. Surprisingly, the image quality is sharp and impressive, even under imperfect lighting.
We love the Auto Framing feature since it is highly intuitive and responsive when following its subject. The camera keeps our faces at the centre of the frame in video calls and works smoothly with the transitions. When we moved around, we could rely on this product and ensure it would not annoy viewers with jittery footage.
Luckily, when you have even lighting, it delivers significantly improved performance. It also excels in handling noise, even in challenging conditions.
There is a notable absence of chromatic and luminance noise, even in the darkest scenes. Plus, it does not overly smooth the image. This aspect is valuable because some parts of our space lack natural light.
Moreover, its auto-exposure feature adjusts to capture clear and visible videos even when lights are off. It also efficiently works when there is minimal light to work with.
