Microsoft LifeCam Studio HD Webcam

650841.jpg

Microsoft Corp. today announced the LifeCam Studio HD Webcam, featuring sharp high-definition (HD) video with a true 1080p sensor. The LifeCam Studio is the perfect complement to Windows Live Messenger 2011, which will offer HD video calling in a 16:9 widescreen format so everyone can easily be seen in the video call with amazing detail. When people can't attend an important life moment in person, LifeCam Studio delivers the closest thing to being there.

LifeCam Studio
As Microsoft's first webcam with a 1080p sensor, LifeCam Studio delivers superior sharpness and image quality in video calls. The native 1080p sensor is more than twice as large as the 720p HD sensors on the market and lets more light in so people experience great video in virtually any lighting condition. Whether the sun is streaming in the window or the user is lit only by the light from the computer monitor, LifeCam Studio brings friends and family closer than ever before.

Better Together With Windows Live Messenger 2011
The launch of Microsoft's latest HD LifeCam comes at an exciting time for webcam users with the recent announcement that Windows Live Messenger 2011 will support HD video calling this fall.

More Than Just Good Looks
In addition to a high-quality video picture, LifeCam Studio features a stunning industrial design. But it's not just about great design; every piece of this webcam serves a purpose. The new webcam is Microsoft's first to feature a tripod thread, perfect for recording long video captures from different angles — not only in front of the monitor. LifeCam Studio also includes these features:

  • A 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.

First-Class Technology
LifeCam Studio features premium optics, with improved Auto Focus to keep objects in focus no matter how far the distance from the LifeCam, and a high-precision glass element lens for superior clarity. It also includes two technologies to ensure video remains true to life in almost any environment:

  • TrueColor Technology automatically delivers bright and colorful video in virtually any lighting condition and helps keep the most important part of the video call — the face — properly exposed.
  • ClearFrame Technology helps keep video smooth and detailed even in low light.

Pricing and Availability
Microsoft LifeCam Studio will be available exclusively at Best Buy stores later this month for the estimated retail price of $99.95 and is available on BestBuy.com starting today. Microsoft backs this product with a worldwide three-year limited hardware warranty.
