Founded in 2020, the aftermath of the pandemic jumpstarted a shift to remote work, and a clear gap in the market appeared — the need for a solid professional webcam. Opal took on the task to build the best camera for remote work, focusing on both hardware and software to enable their vision. The newly launched Tadpole is the smallest webcam ever built, with a category-first directional microphone, a mirrorless Sony sensor, and the easiest way to mute your call with a single tap, it’s the perfect webcam to take with you anywhere. 

Founding Story
