Hi Everyone ! It’s Nick, back with a few important updates…
Previously I had talked about 720p video calling on Logitech Vid HD and Windows Live Messenger – that was cool but many of you use Skype, and are anxiously waiting to join the HD party – well wait no longer!
Today we are happy to announce our newest Logitech HD webcams enable video calls in 720p HD on Skype from PC to PC, as long as you’re using the latest version of Skype for Windows (version 5.0 beta or later). So if you’re a Skype user, you can experience HD on the new Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910, or the Logitech HD Webcams C510, C310 or C270. Sorry, your embedded webcam won’t cut it.
HD Video calling is just one of the many ways your embedded webcam falls short. We’ve talked about image quality, autofocus, field of view, yada yada yada. Well, talk is cheap so check out this video and see for yourself after the break.
One final note: We are always listening to our users on how to make things better – The latest version of Logitech Webcam Software includes a new video compression setting, which enables your high-def video to be even more crisp and sharp. Depending on if you want to edit your movies for home playback, or share on YouTube with the world – you can pick the best compression setting and file size for you. Check your Logitech Webcam Software for updates if you haven’t received the notification yet, or visit our support pages.
So if you haven’t made the switch to HD yet, what are you waiting for? Check out a new Logitech HD webcam and see the difference for yourself.
