We have some interesting news now for those of you that are thinking about upgrading your current webcam, as Creative Technology has recently revealed its new Live Cam inPerson HD web camera, which comes with a built-in H.264 video encoding processor and improved audio quality.
As noted at electronista.com, the integrated H.264 video encoding processor will ensure the fastest possible framerate, while using the least amount of computer resources. This enables users with older PCs or notebooks with insufficient built-in video processing to enjoy improved image quality and consistency.
The Creative Live! Cam inPerson HD web camera – which has been Skype certified for voice, video and HD calling – also delivers improved audio quality, thanks to the four microphones that are embedded in the housing. It also features noise-cancellation technology, auto focus and the ability to take photos up to 12MP.
It also comes with bundled software (for Windows only), which aids in avatar creation, sharing features, surveillance options and video and audio effects. The new webcam works with Intel dual-core or better, Mac (OS X 10.5 or above), Linux (kernel 2.6 or later) and Windows (XP SP2 or above) with a USB 2.0 port.
