FREMONT, CALIF. — Logitech
unveiled a new line of high-definition
webcams that utilize the previously
announced Logitech Vid HD software
to make free two-way HD video
calls.

The flagship Logitech HD Pro
C910 offers 720p video calling, Full-
HD 1080p video recording, 10-megapixel
still photo captures, Logitech
Fluid Crystal technology for smoother
motion and truer colors, and oneclick
HD uploading to Facebook and
YouTube. It boasts two microphones,
one on either side of the webcam lens,
for stereo sound, and a thin 25mmdeep
form factor.

Other new webcam models include
the portable 8-megapixel HD webcam
C510 with fold-and-go design
and 360-degree rotation capability,
and the step-down 5-megapixel HD
webcam C310 and 3-megapixel HD
webcam C270.

“HD video calling is
a critical step toward
our vision of a world
in which video communication
is as mainstream
and seamless as
a telephone call — for
anyone, anywhere,” said
Eric Kintz, VP/GM of
Logitech’s video business. “With Logitech
HD webcams and Vid HD, you
have everything you need to share, to
connect, to see the people that matter
to you in breathtaking detail that
far surpasses the quality of embedded
webcams.”
Logitech Vid HD software is
available via free download at www.logitech.com/vid, and works with
any brand HD-ready webcam. It includes
Magix photo- and video-editing
software.
All four Logitech HD webcams are
Skype-certified, optimized for Windows
Live Messenger, and will work with major
video-calling
clients including
Yahoo! Messenger and Gmail
Voice and Video Chat.

The Logitech HD Pro C910 is expected
to be available in the U.S.in
August for a suggested retail of
$99.99. The C510 ($59.99), C310
($49.99) and C270 ($39.99) are expected
to ship in June.
