Creative Announces New Live! Cam Socialize HD 1080 Web Camera

New Line of HD Web Cameras Now Available with 1080p Full HD Resolution, Auto Focus Lens and Ultra Precise Noise Cancelling Microphones

Milpitas, CA Nov. 15, 2010 – Creative today announced the new Live! Cam Socialize HD 1080 HD web camera. Sporting a full HD sensor with 1080p resolution, auto focus wide-angle glass lens and built-in dual adaptive array microphones with beam-forming and noise cancellation technologies, the Live! Cam Socialize HD 1080 is a formidable tool for video chatting and more.

“We are constantly pushing for newer and better features for our web cameras. With the Live! Cam Socialize HD 1080, we are offering a wide variety of newly enhanced visual, audio and software features from full HD resolution, an auto focus capability, beam-forming and noise cancellation technologies and also a business card scanning feature,” said Steve Erickson, VP and GM for Audio-Video Group at Creative. “Our aim is to offer users an unparalleled experience when using our Live! Cam Socialize HD 1080.” 

The Live! Cam Socialize HD 1080 has built-in dual adaptive array microphones which form an adjustable beam angle that ranges from 20°to 180° and enable the optimal performance of a headset-free, far-field voice input by centering microphone sensitivity on the user’s voice and reducing noise outside that signal.  It dramatically reduces ambient noise caused when a speaker’s voice reverberates from walls or ceilings.

It also lets users upload recorded videos to more social media links including YouTube, Photobucket, KinKast, Tudou.com, Youku.com and Facebook. The new Live! Scan software further enhances the already robust Live! Cam Socialize HD 1080 with business card scanning ability. By placing a business card in the cradle bundled with the Live! Cam Socialize HD 1080, the web camera captures the information on the business card into a file – an extremely handy way of storing business cards electronically.
