Logitech reveals new range of webcams

Logitech Australia has announced that it is introducing five new webcams to its range, all of which will be compatible with the company’s new video calling software, Vid.

To take advantage of the new software, Logitech is releasing five new web cams to suit all types of users.

“Now that Vid is changing the way people stay in touch, it’s the perfect time to pick up a new Logitech webcam and make video calling a regular part of your life,” said Gina Clark, general manager and vice president of Logitech’s Internet Communications business unit.

“Logitech is a pioneer in the development of webcams, and our latest products make it easy to see your friends and family around the world.”

The range consists of the C200 (RRP $59.95), C250 (RRP $79.95), C300 (RRP $89.95), C500 (RRP $99.95) and C600 (RRP $129.95).

The C600 is the premium model in the range and feature HD-quality video and 8-megapixel snapshots (software enhanced), and a 2-megapixel sensor and glass lens.

Logitech boasts that the new camera will capture HD video at 720p, for TV quality resolution on your PC.

It also features RightLight 2 technology to adjust the light in poor conditions.

All models will be supported by Vid, Logitech’s free video calling software and will automatically install when setting up your new webcam.

But Logitech isn’t forcing you to use its own software; it also allows external instant messaging applications like Skype, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo messenger and AIM.

The new webcams are expected to be available in August.
