Logitech Unveils Full-HD Webcam for 1080p Video Calling

I thought Logitech already had a 1080P webcam? I have it sitting right here on top of my monitor. Yeah it’s the C910 that I reviewed last January actually. I wonder what the difference between them is? I guess I need an upgrade now huh? The new C920 will be priced $99.99 and for sale in January.

-Logitech today unveiled the Logitech® HD Pro Webcam C920, making it easier than ever to capture full-HD 1080p video that’s faster and smoother and performs well on more computers. The device offers breathtaking quality, allowing friends and loved ones to see and hear the real you.

“People are increasingly relying on video calling to maintain far flung connections”

“People are increasingly relying on video calling to maintain far flung connections,” said Todd Walker, brand manager at Logitech. “Whether chatting with friends, family or co-workers, they want to be seen at their best through a sharp, high-quality image. The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 can provide just that as the first webcam to offer 1080p video calling, thanks to our collaboration with Skype.”

The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 captures full-HD 1080p video for connecting with friends using Skype™ or in HD 720p for Windows Live™ Messenger. Thanks to H.264 advanced compression technology, you can upload full-HD 1080p video clips or 15MP photos quickly and with one click to Facebook, Twitter™ or YouTube™ (account required). To enjoy 1080p HD video calling you’ll need to download the latest version of Skype, Skype 5.7 Beta for Windows.

Logitech Fluid Crystal™ Technology is what sets a Logitech webcam apart. In addition to smoother video motion without annoying choppiness, you get sharper pictures, richer colors and clearer sound – so your loved ones will literally see and hear more of you – even if you don’t have the newest computer on the market. The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 also features Carl Zeiss optics and a premium 20-step autofocus, Logitech’s smoothest, most responsive autofocus yet. And because being heard is just as important as being seen, two mics positioned on either side of the webcam capture natural stereo audio.

The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 will also be offered to business customers, delivering an enhanced experience for videoconferencing and unified communications. To learn more, visit www.logitech.com/business.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in January 2012 for a suggested retail price of $99.99. For more information please visit www.logitech.com or our blog.
