Logitech announced their HD Pro Webcam C920 for full-HD 1080p video calling with Skype or 720p calling with Windows Live Messenger. Thanks to H.264 advanced compression technology, you can upload full-HD 1080p video clips or 15MP photos quickly and with one click to Facebook, Twitter or YouTube (account required). To enjoy 1080p HD video calling you’ll need to download the latest version of Skype, Skype 5.7 Beta for Windows.
Logitech Fluid Crystal Technology is what sets a Logitech webcam apart. In addition to smoother video motion without annoying choppiness, you get sharper pictures, richer colors and clearer sound — so your loved ones will literally see and hear more of you — even if you don’t have the newest computer on the market. The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 also features Carl Zeiss optics and a premium 20-step autofocus, Logitech’s smoothest, most responsive autofocus yet. And because being heard is just as important as being seen, two mics positioned on either side of the webcam capture natural stereo audio.
“Whether chatting with friends, family or co-workers, they want to be seen at their best through a sharp, high-quality image. The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 can provide just that as the first webcam to offer 1080p video calling, thanks to our collaboration with Skype,” said Todd Walker, brand manager at Logitech.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in January 2012 for $99.99.
