Creative Live! Cam Voice

This is the first webcam to use Directional Live! Audio technology, which improves voice clarity and reduces background noise. The technology uses integrated dual adaptive array microphones to capture the user's voice while eliminating background and environmental noise from outside the webcam's field of view. It also filters repeated sound waves, reduces echo and prevents feedback, which is critical during multi-party video conversations. It offers resolution of 1.3 megapixels for video capture. Users can snap still photographs at up to 5.0 megapixels interpolated resolution. To further enhance video and image quality, Creative Live! Cam Voice incorporates Live! View technology to maximise the number of frames that are displayed per second and enable low-light performance.
