Creative Live inPerson HD Webcam Gets Skype's Seal of Approval
June 02 10:39 2011 Print This Article

Skype has become very popular as of late because of its HD video calling service. To experience the full extent of this service, members would have to install HD webcams. Logitech and Microsoft released theirs last year, but Skype refused to certify them for use with its service. Although these HD webcams would work just fine on Skype HD, the messenger service would not guarantee they will work well.

The reason behind this refusal is because Skype is only interested in certifying HD webcams that come with onboard video processing, so that Skype HD would even work in old computers. Creative has heeded this call and introduced the inPerson HD webcam with built-in H.264 encoder and CPU for flawless video conferencing. It even has an autofocus and “quad mic” system, so users can sit as far as 10 feet away and still be seen and heard clearly.

However, if you are put off by its $150 price tag, there are cheaper alternatives out there like the HD webcams made by FaceVision and Freetalk.
