This is actually sort of two products in one, the FVexpress Combo is both the 720P HD webcam and an express card or mini-PCIE card. The camera is obviously HD at 720p and offering 30FPS, it has a built-in H264 encoder with a 28mm wide angle lens with a 75 degree field of view. It also has auto focus, and auto brightness control. It has an MSRP of $149.95 and is available now many places. I remember when webcams were little cheap things that were more of a novelty item, now though they seem to be truly advancing and getting more expensive at the same time.
The FVexpress Combo includes a compact faceVsion FV TouchCam(TM) L1 HD video camera with a wide-angle 28mm up to 75 degree field-of-view lens and advanced auto-focus/auto-brightness control and is the recipient of the 2010 iF Design Award. The kit also includes an FVexpress card which slides into a laptop’s Express34 or mini PCIe card slot and provides on-board hardware H.264 encoding of the HD video stream before being transmitted over the Internet. The included QuLives communication manager software application works seamlessly with Google Talk to manage HD video chatting sessions including importing of Google Talk contacts, recording chat sessions, and more.
