Microsoft LifeCam VX-7000

In addition to its notebook webcam, the Microsoft LifeCam NX-3000, Microsoft also today introduced a device intended to be attached to monitors and flat screens (although it will fit on notebooks or sit directly on your desk), the Microsoft LifeCam VX-7000.

The predominantly silver Microsoft LifeCam VX-7000 looks pretty sophisticated, and we think it will blend in sympathetically with most screens.

The Microsoft LifeCam VX-7000 features a high-definition 2Mp video sensor and 7.6Mp photo sensor. Microsoft says the glass element lens enhances video quality and the webcam automatically adjusts in low light conditions.

Featuring support for Windows Live Messenger, the Microsoft LifeCam VX-7000 enables you to share photos whilst you're conducting a conversation using the Photo Swap element of the instant-messaging service. You can also take use of the LifeCam Dashboard controls built into the Live Messenger conversation window and start video calls in a single touch using the built-in Windows Live Call Button.

On the audio side the Microsoft LifeCam VX-7000 webcam, much the same as Microsoft’s new notebook cam, includes a built-in unidirectional microphone with acoustic noise cancellation.

The Microsoft LifeCam VX-7000 is expected to ship today and retail at £79.
