The TV Cam Webcam from Logitech is a USB webcam that is designed for use with the Logitech Revue media player. The camera connects to one of the USB ports on the Revue. It is perfect for online video chat and video calling. The built-in mic is designed to pick up audio from anywhere within your living room. Its Carl Zeiss lens features a wide-angle field of view with a 5x digital zoom, making it possible to include several people in frame, or just one.
Designed for Logitech Revue
Get yourself the only webcam for Google TV. By connecting your TV Cam to Logitech Revue, you get-in your living room-HD video calls to friends and family, whether they're on a computer or another Google TV system. As long as they have a webcam, a high-speed Internet connection and a free Logitech Vid HD account, you'll be able to see them, talk to them and say "hello" on your HDTV with Logitech Revue.
HD Video Calls on Your HDTV
Enjoy HD video calling right in your living room. If the people you're calling have an HD webcam, you'll get crisp, clear images in widescreen HD 720p resolution, allowing you to see and hear them as if they were in the room with you. And since you're in your living room and not huddled in front of a computer, video calls are like a real visit from your friends and family.
Logitech Vid HD
The TV Cam uses Logitech Vid HD to connect to the people you want to talk to. Logitech Vid HD is simple to use and, best of all, free for friends and family with a webcam and high-speed Internet access, no matter whether they have a Mac, PC, or Google TV.
Audio Designed for Your Living Room
The TV Cam comes with two digital, directional microphones to help reduce noise and echoes. And when you use Logitech Vid HD, you'll send lifelike stereo audio. So when you're on the left side of the room, your loved ones will see and hear you through their stereo speakers as if you're on the left side of their room.
Wide-Angle Lens and 5x Digital Zoom
Because of the camera's standard wide-angle lens, the people you video call will see more of the room you're in, allowing you and your family to sit comfortably on the living-room couch. Want to get closer? TV Cam has a 5x digital zoom, giving you the option of zooming in on your room for a more personal conversation.
With on-screen notification, you'll always know when someone is calling and who it is. And if you missed a call, you can tell just by looking for the envelope icon on-screen and on the camera.
