Creative launches Live! Cam Voice webcam

Lights, Camera, Action

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Creative has launched a new webcam, and ominously the Creative Live! Cam Voice, which is the 13th model in its extensive range and the ninth to use that blasted exclamation mark after the word ‘Live’.

It claims to be the first webcam on the market to offer built-in dual microphones and a true 1.3 Megapixel lens with intelligent auto exposure and white balance for clearer images. We suspect that Creative means a 1.3MP sensor, and not lens, but the resolution of 1,280x960 is an impressive figure for a webcam. With interpolation the numbers climb to 5 Megapixels and 2,560x1,920.

Creative says that its newly patented Adaptive Array Microphone technology filterers out annoying background noise, such as music or general office sounds, and its Smart Face Tracking technology allows the user to move around whilst talking.

The lens has an 85 degree field of view with a 4x digital zoom, the interface is USB 2.0 and the retail price is £79.99 ®
