Creative announces new HD Webcam optimized for Skype HD video calling.
The new Creative Live! Cam inPerson HD meets the exacting requirements for HD video calling in Skype. The Creative Live! Cam inPerson HD, in which Creative has integrated an H.264 video encoding processor, is ensuring the fastest possible video frame rate for HD video calling and alleviating the problem of choppy video that users often experience, even with lower definition video calling. By performing the H.264 encoding on the Creative Live! Cam inPerson HD instead of using the PC, the user is not required to have the highest-performance PC to experience smooth HD video quality with Skype.
The Creative Live! Cam inPerson HD features crystal-clear voice through the implementation of Creative’s quad mic array. To achieve improvement in voice quality, the mics are precisely spaced across the nine-inch flat-panel surface of the camera. This quad mic implementation coupled with Creative’s noise-canceling technology removes ambient noise much more effectively than web cams with single or stereo mics and allows the user to be heard with substantially greater clarity.
Besides the technical features the new inPerson HD also looks quite cool.
“In order for web cams to become Skype Certified we put them through a rigorous video and voice testing and qualification process,” said Ed Botterill, Head of Skype Certification at Skype. “The Live! Cam inPerson met these exacting specifications and provides an excellent solution for Skype video calling.”
The new Creative Live! Cam inPerson HD is going to sell for $129.99 on Amazon.
