Microsoft Introduces Webcams With Windows Live Integration
Microsoft is introducing the Microsoft LifeCams, a new line of webcams aimed at dramatically simplifying the video communications experience.

The new series starts with two models, the LifeCam VX-6000 and LifeCam VX-3000, both optmised for Windows Live Messenger.

One of the new features that streamline the webcam experience, is the Windows Live Call Button. Located on the top of each LifeCam, the Windows Live Call Button makes it easier to place a video call.

Also built into the Windows Live Messenger window for easy access during video calling, the LifeCam Dashboard provides simple access to controls such as pan, tilt and zoom.

Integration with Windows Live Spaces is also included and allows users to post high definition pictures directly to their Windows Live Space blog with one click from within the LifeCam window.

The new Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 is a top-of-the-line wired webcam providing high quality still photography with 5 megapixels interpolated. It also provides high definition video with 1.3 megapixels and 3x digital zoom. A 71-degree wide-angle lens provides enough room for up to three people to join in the conversation.

The Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 offers high definition still photography with 1.3 megapixels interpolated and VGA-sized video (640x480 pixels).

Both LifeCams feature a built-in acoustic noise-canceling microphone and a universal attachment base is included for easy and secure attachment to a monitor.

These new Microsoft LifeCams will be widely available in August 2006 (New Zealand). Microsoft will introduce additional LifeCam products in September 2006.
