Creative Live Cam Voice

Audio quality often suffers with web cameras due to their open nature: they can pick up any nearby sounds regardless of their immediate relevance to the conversation. Creative's recently released Live! Cam Voice is the first to solve this problem by incorporating two microphones, according to the company. Using an intelligent sampling system, the new Creative device compares audio from two microphone arrays to reduce background noise that might interfere with voice chat. The camera itself has an ultra-wide-angle lens with a 1.3-megapixel sensor and automatic exposure correction; unique features include interpolation to 5 megapixels and automatic tracking to follow head movements. A Live! Cam Voice requires Windows 2000 or XP and is currently shipping for $100.
