In just minutes, the stylish, sophisticated Live! Cam Voice is set up and ready for video instant messaging. Creative Directional Live! Audio technology integrates dual adaptive array microphones to capture the user's voice while eliminating background and environmental noise coming from outside the webcam's field of view. This enables users to speak naturally while video instant messaging in public places.
The Live! Cam Voice delivers true hardware 1.3 megapixel resolution for photo and video capture - over four times the quality of standard web cameras. Users can snap still photos up to 5.0 megapixels - the highest resolution of any web camera available. To further enhance video and image quality, the Live! Cam Voice incorporates Live! View technology to maximize the number of frames that are displayed per second, enabling exceptional low-light performance and delivering rich, saturated color.
"Noisy coffee shops, airports and offices are no longer an unacceptable environment for video instant messaging - the Live! Cam Voice blocks out all the distracting conversations and noise around you so you can clearly communicate wherever you are" said Dr. Jeff Stoen, general manager for cameras at Creative. "The Live! Cam Voice features innovative dual array microphones, so even when you're in public, you can have private conversations that sound as clear as a phone call."
