Creative Technology has recently announced three new additions to their line of Live! web cameras – Live! Cam Socialize; Live! Cam Socialize HD; and Live! Cam Sync – for users to have video conferencing or recording videos and uploading them to YouTube.
Creative Technology Ltd. has announced the Creative Live!® Cam Socialize HD web cam that is ideal for video chatting on Skype, Yahoo! and MSN, and for recording video in high definition to post on social media sites, including YouTube and Photobucket.
The Creative Live! Cam Socialize HD streams up to 30 frames per second in HD for a smooth video experience. Its recording capability allows users to film their video in high quality as opposed to traditional VGA web cams that often look blurry. Users can upload their HD videos with one-click uploading to YouTube instead of having to take multiple steps to get videos uploaded.
Featuring a new low-profile design, the Creative Live! Cam Socialize HD brings the lens closer to eye-level for more personal face-to-face interaction during video chatting or teleconferencing. Combined with a hi-speed USB 2.0 connection, this plug and play web cam provides smooth video capture and transmission at up to 30 frames per second while its built-in noise-cancelling microphone eliminates background noise for clearer audio.
Also included is the enhanced Live! Central 2 software suite features new Media Show and Desktop Share features. With Media Show, users can easily share photos and slide presentations as a slideshow in the IM video window of video messaging clients. Desktop Share enables users to share any live content shown on the desktop, including videos and documents.
