Logitech TV Cam HD for Skype Coming to a TV Near You
Logitech recently announced their new HD (720p) camera for Skype, the Logitech TV Cam HD, available for preorder at $199.99. It’s not compatible with Sensr.net, but hey, it’s still a sweet camera! All it needs is a hi-def TV, an HDMI cable, and a reasonably fast internet connection — 1 Mbps minimum. For your $200, you’ll get a camera loaded with a Carl Zeiss optics lens, digital zoom, full PTZ, four noise canceling microphones to reduce background noise, wifi, and a built-in ringer, whether your TV is on or off. It does have an ethernet port too, if your wireless network isn’t quite up to snuff.
The Skype app comes built in with the camera, so all you have to do is login with your account; the setup process is short and simple. Logitech’s TV Cam HD is expected to ship in late August.
