We’re excited to take a major step today toward delivering on our promise to bring HD video to anyone – consumers and businesses – on any screen, by unveiling the first complete HD video-calling experience on the PC with our new family of HD webcams and Logitech Vid HD.
Watch this video from Tim Leehane, director of product marketing for webcams, as he shares all the cool features of our new HD webcams – including HD 1080p video capturing, one-click HD upload to Facebook and YouTube, and more:
As we’ve previously announced, Logitech Vid HD will be pre-installed on the Logitech companion box for Google TV (coming this fall), enabling TV-to-TV and TV-to-PC video calling. And we will also bring Vid to the smartphone by the end of the year.
We believe video calling can be as mainstream and easy as a phone call but to date there have been two major barriers for massive consumer adoption – quality and ubiquity! With our announcement today of HD video calling on the PC and with our plans for the TV, smartphone, and the meeting room, we truly believe we can deliver on the vision of HD video communications for anyone, anywhere!
