Webcam that Lets You Shoot HD Video on the Go
The new webcam’s fold-and-go design, coupled with autofocus capabilities and a 360-degree swivel rotation, expands the possibilities of what you can capture in full HD video anytime, anywhere.
Logitech has announced the portable Logitech HD Webcam C615 for easy video calling and HD recording on the go – whether you’re at a birthday party or on a business trip, on a PC or a Mac.
The webcam lets you make video calls in HD 720p on Skype, FaceTime for Mac, Logitech Vid HD and Windows Live Messenger, as well as video calls on Yahoo! Messenger, iChat, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) and other popular instant messaging applications.
It also includes one-click HD video and photo upload to Facebook, as well as HD video upload to YouTube and Twitter, so you can easily share your video recordings. To bring you extra flexibility, the webcam comes with a 3-foot USB cable with an extender, and has a tripod-ready design so you can easily capture video from any vantage point.[ ADVERTISEMENT: Raman Media Network: Connecting Communities ]
“We know how important it is for today’s travelers to stay connected, whether they’re on the road for business or leisure, so we are pleased to offer an HD webcam that simplifies video calling and sharing videos on the go,” said Joerg Tewes, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s consumer video business unit.
“The Logitech HD Webcam C615 is designed for maximum flexibility no matter what your needs may be, with the equipment necessary for HD recordings right in the box and easy-to-use editing features for both Mac and PC users.”
It features built-in autofocus, helping ensure your picture quality will be razor sharp – even in extreme closeups – and a built-in mic that helps make sure background noise won’t spoil your video calls.
With Logitech’s newest webcam, users can also capture software-enhanced 8-megapixel images, while built-in Logitech Fluid Crystal technology gives users smoother video, sharper pictures, richer color and clearer sound in real-world conditions, claims the company.
It is expected to be available in the U.S. in June for a suggested retail price of $79.99, and in Europe and Asia in September.
