I usually use Skype for live video chat with my distant friends and realtives. But the poor quality of webcams always disturbs me. I have changed my webcams a number of times but have not been able to achieve quality video output.
Recently, a friend, himself quite disgusted by my poor video, suggested me the use of a virtually true HD quality Skype video calls via FV touchcam N1. Although at first I disregarded his advice becasue of my dissatisfaction with many a branded and non-branded webcams, I still thought of giving it a try. I went to faceVision on line store for more information.
And wow!! I was impressed by the feature of FV touchCam N1. The device has a H.264 hardware encoder, a achipset that seems as technological breakthrough to ensure true HD video quality. The faceVsion TouchCam N1 is the world’s first Skype certified webcam, which can deliver full screen 720p streaming video over internet. The webcam squeezes the video into a stream small enough to be sent over typical internet connection – now this is some good news for the users of Skype with not very good internet connection, as the video is compressed, takes less space and transmission time.
But that is not all – the N1 features a best-in-class 78 degree super wide angle with fast auto focus. Now this is something unique and what I have been always wanting so that my family could also be included in the webcam coverage and could participate in the live chat. Besides, unidirectional dual microphones ensure good sound quality. The N1 device is so handy and easily adaptable to various types of computers that now I don’t have to stick to my desktop and my study. The webcam can be easily plugged in via a hi-speed USB 2.0.
So now here is finally a true streaming HD quality webcam with a wide angle capability that is not only suitable for video chatters like me, but also for holding conferences with larger audience on one screen. This would revolutionize the online sale of the sale representatives who can call the clients and show the products in the background using the wide angle facility.
The faceVision has also lauched FV ExpressCombo a package that includes the FV Touchcam L1 and the fvExpress ExpressCard H.264 720p encoding and decoder. The L1 is a 720p HD camera with 2 Megapixel sensor with auto focus, 28mm wide angle. It is able to capture 720p HD video at 30fps.
I am convinced and would go for it instantly. And am sure after reading my review, you would be picking up the telephone to order one. By the way, FV webcam is available through shop.facevsion.com and other value added partners as well.
