An HD Web Cam With Built-in Smarts

Techstination feature for Wednesday, October 13, 2010

An HD Web cam with built in smarts. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. High definition cameras that enable video conferencing via Skype and other applications are growing in number. Logitech and Microsoft make some of the best known models for PCs and Macs and some network connected TVs from Samsung and Panasonic can use proprietary Skype cameras that work pretty well. A company called FaceVsion is out with the TouchCam N1. Marketing manager May Ton says the wide angle lens and 720p video make it great in both family and office settings...

"You can actually accommodate three to four people for a Skype video conference call."

The camera, which features a built in chip for video encoding and dual microphones, sells for about 120 dollars. You can find more info at You can find us at I'm Fred Fishkin.
