Microsoft reveals LifeCam Studio, featuring sharp high-definition (HD) video with a true 1080p sensor. Microsoft LifeCam is the perfect for video calling using Windows Live Messenger, which offers HD video calling in a 16:9 widescreen display with amazing video details. It features 360-degree view range, auto focus and Microsoft’s TrueColor and ClearFrame technologies, which keep the colors bright and the video smooth.

Microsoft LifeCam with a 1080p sensor, delivers superior sharpness and image quality in video calls. The 1080p sensor is more than twice as large as the 720p HD sensors on the market and lets more light in so people experience great video in virtually any lighting condition.

LifeCam Studio includes these important features:

  • A 360-degree view range, which means that users can easily point the camera at themselves or around the room and no need to pick up an entire laptop and turn it around.
  • An elongated hood modeled after a high-end camera to help protect the lens from stray light to avoid washed-out colors.
  • TrueColor Technology automatically delivers bright and colorful video in virtually any lighting condition and helps keep the most important part of the video call – the face – properly exposed.
  • ClearFrame Technology helps keep video smooth and detailed even in low light.

LifeCam Studio is available at Best Buy stores for the price of $99. For more info go to Microsoft Hardware.
