Creative Labs heeft een nieuwe portable webcam uitgedokterd die ook als stand-alone digitale camera kan fungeren (dat bedoelen ze waarschijnlijk met 'portable', mijn parallelle Webcam II is namelijk ook al heel erg portable...). Hier de press release, bruut gejat van GA-Source:
Creative Technology today introduced the first portable PC camera - the Video Blaster WebCam Go. A key component of Creative's Personal Digital Entertainment (PDE) Internet Solutions, the WebCam Go is an easy-to-use Internet video camera that lets PC and Internet enthusiasts capture digital images on-the-go when detached from the PC. In addition, WebCam Go offers all of the benefits of a traditional PC-based Internet camera including the ability to send video e-mail, set up a spy cam, create and design personal Web sites, and the ability to video conference live via the Internet.
With its built-in 4MB of memory, light compact design and detachable camera with viewfinder, WebCam Go has an accessible street price of $149.99, and is available in time for the holiday season. The WebCam Go offers all of the advantages of a traditional PC camera and can also function as a portable digital camera when unplugged from the PC. WebCam Go delivers features that include crisp resolution, a plug-and-play USB connection, and software applications that are simple and easy to use.
The WebCam Go stores images in Web-ready JPEG format at 640x480 resolution to allow easy uploading to the Internet. On the PC, the integrated control panel allows consumers to easily preview images before using Windows' drag-and-drop feature to store them in an album, place them in an application or delete them.
The WebCam Go is available now through Creative's network of distributors and resellers worldwide at a suggested retail price of US $149.99. More information about the WebCam Go can be found at: www.creative.com/video/WebCam-Go.
