Logitech today announced the Logitech Webcam C930e, which features an extra-wide 90-degree field of view, supports the H.264 SVC and UVC 1.5 video encoding standards and high-definition digital pan-tilt-zoom.
The full 1080p Logitech C930e promises to deliver enterprise-grade video collaboration, featuring Carl Zeiss-certified glass engineered to avoid the "fish eye" distortion that often detracts from wide-angle images.
Optimized for Microsoft Lync, compatible with Cisco, Skype and most unified communications and videoconferencing applications, the camera also provides a digital pan-tilt-zoom feature that maintains a high-definition image at up to 4X magnification, according to Logitech.
Support for H.264 SVC and UVC 1.5 video encoding frees up PC bandwidth by processing video within the camera and automatically adjusting performance for maximum video-quality when bandwidth fluctuates. The Logitech C930e offers additional features including autofocus, an external privacy shutter and Logitech RightLight 2 technology, which intelligently adjusts the image to improve visual quality in low-light at multiple distances.
The Logitech Webcam C930e is expected to be available worldwide in May 2013 for a suggested price of $109.99.
