10/13/2008 - Hercules Goes To ‘Infinity and Beyond’ with High Tech. Webcam

London, 13 October 2008 - Hercules, designer and manufacturer of entertainment hardware is taking its webcam technology to another level with the new high-end Hercules Dualpix Infinite webcam to be launched this November. It delivers infinitely superior technical specifications, boasting many ‘firsts,’ unprecedented software functionality and an elegant design with a high tech black lacquered and brushed steel finish for just £69.99:

Wide-angle vision: Hercules Dualpix Infinite is the first webcam to offer a wide-angle auto focus lens (approx. 70°) in this price category. This is ideal for situations where users wish to film groups of people comfortably whilst keeping them all in the frame.

High-fidelity vocal quality: Hercules Dualpix Infinite incorporates a high-fidelity unidirectional microphone with a noise-cancelling function (filters out echoes and annoying background noise). The design of the microphone is reminiscent of those used in recording studios to further convince of its superior performance.

High Resolution Sensor: Thanks to its high-resolution sensor, the Dualpix Infinite offers a photographic resolution of 7.6 million pixels* and a video resolution of 2 million pixels*. The image is pure, sharp and infinitely realistic to the tiniest detail. Image quality is maintained in low-light conditions. Pixelated faces, overexposed foreheads, shiny skin and other imperfections are eliminated! The webcam is ‘your friend’ - for online romance, family occasions as well as professional conferences.

New ‘Chat and show’ functions: Hercules Dualpix Infinite’s predecessor, Dualpix Chat and Show webcam, allowed users, for the first time, to simultaneously display their photographs whilst conducting a video conversation (show a photo album whilst still displaying their face on screen). Now, thanks to the new Hercules Xtra Controller software, users can show their movies or videos instantly too. They can also display an item from their Windows® desktop (e.g. an article about a website, an email...) and comment on them live or dub over the voice friends, family or even an actor while viewing a movie trailer. Additionally many special effects are included for further customisation of pictures and videos. These features add infinitely more lively than standard face to face chat sessions.

Webcam Station Evolution Software:
The new version of Webcam Station Evolution software offers three captures modes (single, continuous and timer modes), a high-performance face tracking feature, the automatic conversion of files (for email, blog, iPod®, PSPTM and even YouTubeTM) and High Speed USB 2.0 Video Class connectivity.

The Hercules Dualpix Infinite really does offer an infinitely superior videoconferencing experience!

Hercules Dualpix Infinite will be available in November 2008 for SRP £69.99.
