At last--a webcam design truly suited to laptop PCs. The Hercules Dualpix HD for notebooks and laptops is the first 720p high-definition webcam for PC, with a wide-angle, autofocus lens that delivers exceptional image quality, even in low-light conditions. The multi-position functionality features automatic live image rotation during chat sessions.
Automatic Live Image Rotation During Chatting
Have any of your contacts ever mentioned that you weren't "looking them in the eye" during your chat sessions on MSN or Skype? Since your webcam is located above your laptop's screen (or maybe even set on your desk), you can't always look at the camera lens and watch your contact's face on the screen at the same time. Thanks to the Hercules Dualpix HD720p webcam and its automatic face detection, you'll never have this problem again. The innovative design of the Hercules Dualpix HD720p for Notebooks webcam is entirely designed for use with a laptop PC. It features a harmonious and trendy design with a simple, robust and stable attachment system.
Position and fasten the webcam, and you're done--no need to move laptop's screen. Choose the position best suited to your use, such as the right-hand side of your laptop's screen. The webcam rotates on its axis, to always look you straight in the eye, and automatically detects its position and rotates the image accordingly to better capture your gaze. Once you've finished chatting, simply rotate your webcam and it won't be in the way of your applications' field of vision.
The Dualpix HD captures images as close as possible to the laptop's screen
High Quality Autofocus Lens
The Dualpix HD720p features a 1-megapixel CMOS sensor (1280x800 pixels) for perfect image quality, even in low-light conditions. A photo resolution 5 megapixels (interpolated mode) and a video resolution of HD720p (1280x720) with up to 30 FPS yields great images and perfectly fluid 16:9 HD videos. The Dualpix's lens captures images as close as possible to the laptop's screen, allowing you to really "look your contact in the eye" during chat sessions, which standard webcams can't do.
USB 2.0 Interface
A USB 2.0 Video Class (UVC) interface results in high-speed transfers and ultra-simple driverless installation in Windows XP SP2, Vista and Windows 7.
Hercules Webcam Software Included
A software pack is included with the Dualpix HD to meet all your needs. Hercules Webcam Station Evolution provides photo/video capture, with file conversion to iPod, PSP, blogs, and YouTube. Hercules Xtra Controller Pro is also included, which lets you share a portion of your screen or a slideshow of pictures during video chats.
