"People are increasingly relying on video calling to maintain far flung
connections," said Todd Walker, brand manager at Logitech. "Whether
chatting with friends, family or co-workers, they want to be seen at
their best through a sharp, high-quality image. The Logitech HD Pro
Webcam C920 can provide just that as the first webcam to offer 1080p
video calling, thanks to our collaboration with Skype."
The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 captures full-HD 1080p video for
connecting with friends using Skype™ or in HD 720p for Windows Live™
Messenger. Thanks to H.264 advanced compression technology, you can
upload full-HD 1080p video clips or 15MP photos quickly and with one
click to Facebook, Twitter™ or YouTube™ (account required). To enjoy
1080p HD video calling you'll need to download the latest version of
5.7 Beta for Windows.
Logitech Fluid Crystal™ Technology is what sets a Logitech webcam apart.
In addition to smoother video motion without annoying choppiness, you
get sharper pictures, richer colors and clearer sound — so your loved
ones will literally see and hear more of you — even if you don't have
the newest computer on the market. The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 also
features Carl Zeiss optics and a premium 20-step autofocus, Logitech's
smoothest, most responsive autofocus yet. And because being heard is
just as important as being seen, two mics positioned on either side of
the webcam capture natural stereo audio.
The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 will also be offered to business
customers, delivering an enhanced experience for videoconferencing and
unified communications. To learn more, visit www.logitech.com/business.
