Microsoft unveils LifeCam Studio built with 1080p HD sensor
If you are looking to get a new webcam for video conferencing with your friends, family or colleagues, check out Microsoft’s latest LifeCam Studio. It incorporates 1080p full high definition (HD) sensor and claims to complement the new Windows Live Messenger 2011.
Microsoft has unveiled their latest LifeCam Studio, which features high-definition (HD) video 1080p sensor. Designed to complement the new Windows Live Messenger 2011, the LifeCam Studio offers HD video calling in a 16:9 widescreen format with amazing detail.
The LifeCam Studio boasts to be the company’s first webcam with a 1080p sensor, capable of delivering superior sharpness and image quality. The native 1080p sensor is more than twice as large as the 720p HD sensors on the market and captures more light such that users can experience great video in virtually any lighting condition.
Other features include:-
- 360-degree view range, which means that users can easily point the camera at themselves or around the room — no need to pick up an entire laptop and turn it around.
- An elongated hood modeled after a high-end camera to help protect the lens from stray light to avoid washed-out colors.
Pricing and Availability
Microsoft LifeCam Studio will be available in stores in Singapore by end of January at the estimated retail price of S$149, with three-year limited hardware warranty.
