This is a full HD, LED backlit multimedia monitor that retails for around $374, which certainly doesn’t make it the best deal you’ll find on just a similar monitor. But, in the UZ2315H Dell has included a built-in 2.0MP webcam and integrated speakers, all optimized for Microsoft Lync.

The Dell monitor has a 178 degree viewing angle, meets the latest regulatory and environmental standards and has a highly adjustable stand and cable management, because you are going to have a couple extra cables connecting up the camera and speakers.

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on June 7th, 2010

There may still be an integrated camera coming for the iPad, but until then, one company has your back. PhotoFast has an early prototype that is basically just a Microsoft LifeCam in the dock port, but when it releases later this year, it will be a fully custom two megapixel webcam that manages VGA video and will apparently be compatible with some IM apps.

PhotoFast is also hard at work on an iPad TV tuner and a dock that reads flash memory. Those will also be available for the iPhone/iPod when it is released.

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on May 21st, 2010

The HP forums are going crazy over the popular Envy 15, because some buyers are receiving models with screens that randomly go blank and/or webcams that only show full color under fluorescent light.

Looks like HP is on it though, offering a full refund or repair. However according to one user, two trips back to HP could not fix his laptop’s webcam. It isn’t all HP Envy units, but 20 pages of complaints on the HP Envy Forum means that something is clearly wrong.

Posted in Webcams by Conner Flynn on April 30th, 2010

Gsou of China offers this USB webcam with a low tech anti-peep feature: a robotic arm that will cover the camera lens automatically once you’re done with your video session. If you get an incoming Skype or MSN video call, both hands will be lowered. There’s also a manual override that lets you uncover the lens manually.

Chatroulette Map shows you where they live

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 11th, 2010

So you just saw a penis or some couple doing the nasty on Chatroulette and you want to know where these freaks are located. Understandable I guess. I would want to make sure they don’t live next door to me. And if they do, I might want to move.

Chatroulette connects you with a stranger directly rather than routing you both through another server, so you can see the IP address of everyone you connect to. And an IP address can tell you where that person is on a map. Pretty simple.

HP responds to ‘racist webcam’ claim

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2009

Remember that video of Desi and Wanda from the other day? The video made it look like the HP MediaSmart PC with facial recognition doesn’t work with black people. Well, HP has responded. They blame bad lighting for the PC not being able to follow Desi’s face.

The technology we use is built on standard algorithms that measure the difference in intensity of contrast between the eyes and the upper cheek and nose. We believe that the camera might have difficulty “seeing” contrast in conditions where there is insufficient foreground lighting.

ipevopovcameraWebcams are pretty much the same today. Some of them have better optics and more megapixels than the others have, but design wise they all pretty much sit on top of your monitor to capture video. IPEVO has announced a new webcam called the IPEVO P2V USB CAM.

The new camera is on an articulating arm that looks more like a desk lamp than a webcam. The camera itself is a pen-style camera with a resolution of 2-megapixels. The cam features a macro mode for shooting items as close as 2-inches away.

Microsoft introduces the LifeCam Cinema

Posted in Microsoft by Shane McGlaun on August 21st, 2009

microsoftlifecamcinemaOne of the things that are typical of many webcams that are built into monitors and notebooks is that they suck. The video quality of the cheap webcams inside netbooks for example leaves a lot to be desired. Video is grainy, resolution is poor, and any recorded clips with the camera are choppy.

Microsoft announced a new webcam called the LifeCam Cinema that promises to change all of that. The webcam has 720p resolution and an external mic. The native 720p sensor is perfect for the user who wants to record video to upload to YouTube.
