Redmond, Wash. – Microsoft
added to its LifeCam webcam line today with the addition of a 1080p model.
The LifeCam Studio
features a native 1080p sensor that is more than twice as large as the 720p HD
sensors on the market, Microsoft said. It also features a tripod thread design,
a 360-degree view range, and an elongated hood “to help protect the lens from
stray light to avoid washed-out colors.”
Other features include
improved autofocus, a glass element lens, TrueColor Technology to deliver
bright and color video, and ClearFrame Technology to keep video smooth and
detailed in low light.
The LifeCam Studio will
be available exclusively at Best Buy stores later this month for the estimated
retail of $99.95 and is available on BestBuy.com starting today.
