Logitech has unveiled the Logitech QuickCam Fusion. The webcam will have a true 1.3 megapixel sensor and a built-in microphone for Internet video messaging. QuickCam is the first Logitech webcam to use Video Effects software. This will allow people to adapt 3D animated characters as their virtual avatars and then let the webcam convert real movements into those of the 3D persona.
"The introduction of the QuickCam Fusion webcam is truly a milestone for consumer video communications," commented Gina Clark, director of product marketing for the Logitech Video Business Unit. "We’re breaking new ground with our webcam technologies-audio and video, hardware and software-making the experience of video calling over the Internet more natural and more personal than ever before."
