Technology

Webcam
Digital camera which connects to a computer via a USB port. Its main use is for video conversation over the Internet with other people connected to the Internet and also equipped with a webcam.
HD 720p
HD720p signifies a High-Definition (HD) image format, otherwise known as "HD Ready" in TV parlance. "720" represents an image resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels, while the abbreviation "p" is used to designate progressive scanning of the image (i.e. no interlacing).
"HD720p" provides high-quality images with high refresh rates (in this case, up to 30 frames per second), resulting in a truly amazing level of realism never seen in a webcam… up until now!

Fps (Frames per second)
Unit of measurement of the number of frames displayed per second in a video sequence. The higher this value, the more fluid the video will appear.
MegaPixel (MP)
Unit of measurement of the number of pixels displayed in a still image or one taken from a video sequence. 1 MP = 1 million pixels.
Integrated microphone
Microphone directly integrated into the webcam. Therefore no other microphone is required to converse over the Internet.
Instant Messaging
Software allowing for chatting over the Internet.
Digital zoom
Zoom carried out via software thanks to a mathematical algorithm allowing for the "enlargement" of pixels.
CMOS sensor
Electronic component allowing for the measurement of light intensity at a large number of points to generate a digital image of the scene. Moreover, CMOS technology carries out this task with low energy consumption.
Autofocus
Automatic adjustment of a webcam’s focus allowing a face or object to always remain clear according to its distance from the webcam.
Chat
Real-time text conversation over the Internet.
