New camera processes H.264 video on board
Accessory manufacturer Logitech today announced the Logitech Webcam C930e, a business-oriented teleconferencing web camera that includes an extra-wide 90-degree field of view, support for the H.264 SVC and UVC 1.5 video encoding standards, and high-definition digital pan, tilt, and zoom. Carl Zeiss-certified glass lenses are engineered to avoid the fish eye distortion common to wide-angle images.
Support for H.264 SVC and UVC 1.5 video encoding frees up PC resources and bandwidth by processing video within the camera and automatically adjusting performance for maximum video-quality when bandwidth fluctuates. The Logitech C930e offers additional features including autofocus, an external privacy shutter and Logitech RightLight 2 technology, which automatically adjusts the image to improve visual quality in low-light at multiple distances.
The cross-platform Logitech Webcam C930e is compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS X 10.7 and greater. It is expected to be available worldwide in May for a suggested price of $110.
