Blackmagic is to launch a web camera to help users navigate the world of Google Translator.
The announcement comes a day after Google Translators announced the availability of a new mobile web camera that will allow users to type in text, read out translation, and translate other pages on their devices.
The move comes after Blackmagic CEO Marc Pincus, who was previously responsible for Google’s translation services, joined forces with Google CEO Sundar Pichai to launch the company’s new web camera in January.
According to the press release announcing the camera, the web camera will be “built on Google’s open source Open Webcam SDK” and allow users “to quickly and easily create web-based web experiences that are faster, more responsive, and easier to use than native web pages.”
The company also plans to “launch new web-driven services including video chat, augmented reality, and augmented reality-inspired augmented reality experiences.”
The move to add the web cam is a step toward improving Google’s Translator and is expected to be released in the next couple of weeks.
According to Google, it will be compatible with “any web browser,” which means it will work across mobile devices and desktops, including Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Google Translator is the third-largest web translator service on the web, with over 40 million users worldwide.
Google says that it will “launch a number of new services” over the coming months that will enable its Translator app to be used by other developers.
