Last week Logitech and Carl Zeiss announced exclusive collaboration to improve webcam image quality. Leading webcam manufacturer and leading optics maker brings new level of excellence to video communications.
The two new cameras in the QuickCan-Pro series will be equipped with a Carl Zeiss Tessar lense.
The QuickCam Pro 9000 and QuickCam Pro for Notebooks will also be equipped with an autofocus system that will be able to refocus in less than 3 seconds. The minimum macro distance is around 10cm.
The cameras can also be used for 30 second videos with a resolution of up to 960 x 720 pixsels. A 2 megapixel sensor will through interpolation capture pictures with approximately 8 megapixel resolution.
Light conditions are automatically adjusted which means the cameras will provide high quality pictures even when the user sits in front of a window with strong backlight.
Background noise and echo is reduced through a brand new noise filter.
QuickCam Pro 9000 is equipped with a socket to ensure placement on any screen, while the notebook version limits the screen depth to 20 mm. Also included are a travel bag and a table stand.
Both cameras are expected to hit the market in the beginning of this month. The price for the stationary camera is estimated to be around 110 â‚¬ while the mobile camera adds another 10-15 â‚¬ to the price tag.
