Logitech Introduces New Notebook Web Cams

Logitech, seeing perhaps a need for new notebook Web cams for an expanding notebook PC market, announced today two new Web cams for its portfolio of notebook peripherals. The Logitech QuickCam Deluxe for Notebooks ($60) and the Logitech QuickCam for Notebooks ($40) are both expected next month.

Logitech stated their two new QuickCam models are both designed to work easily with popular video messaging applications such as Skype, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger and AIM. Features in common on these two Web cams include better noise supression technology, crisper picture quality in dim lighting, support for Windows Vista and included software which lets someone outline any visible object in the image and place one of many fun borders around it.

The QuickCam Deluxe, being the higher end model, combines a glass lens with a 1.3 megapixel sensor, which Logitech feels provides better image clarity and color sharpness.

“As notebook computers quickly become the form factor of choice for consumers, Logitech continues to deliver high-quality, affordable notebook webcams that help people make reliable video calls,” said Gina Clark, vice president of product marketing for Logitech’s Internet Communications business unit, in a statement. “Our two new notebook webcams offer people great image quality at a reasonable price – and make video communication easier.
