If you’re like most webcam owners, you use your webcam to keep in touch with a few special people – maybe your children when you’re away from home or grandchilden if you are separated by miles. With the holidays just around the corner, you can use your Logitech webcam to say hello to that special person in a more creative way.
Our free Video Effects Avatars and Face Accessories offer a bunch of holiday themes that make it easy for you to have fun and be entertaining without too much heavy lifting on your part. And let’s face it – who doesn’t need help during the holidays?
I recommend a Logitech webcam that includes the full suite of Video Effects such as the QuickCam Pro 9000 or QuickCam Pro for Notebooks. During the holidays I like using avatars and face accessories to give my calls holiday flair. I also record holiday videos and e-mail them to my family – much easier than writing that annual holiday letter.
Video Masks are also lots of fun. They are a great way to engage children in long-distance story telling. One of my favorite children’s books is Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. I use the moon face mask so that my eyes and mouth animate the moon as I tell the story.
Video Effects are compatible with all popular video calling applications and are included with all Logitech webcams (although only the higher-end webcams include the full suite). New Video Effects content is added regularly to Logitech.com.
This holiday season make keeping in touch more fun with Logitech Video Effects and feel free to share some of your videos and experiences with me.
