08/27/2009 - Hercules Unveils New Era of Mini Webcams Featuring Ultra-Mobility and High Definition


Hercules Dualpix HD720p for Notebooks Offers High Definition Resolution with Multiple Positioning Options

London - (August, 2009) - Hercules, a specialist in IT devices including multimedia speaker sets, webcams, DJing solutions and consumer-friendly WiFi products, debuts a new era of mini webcams for notebooks, the Hercules Dualpix HD720p (patent pending), to launch early September 2009 at the great-value RRP £49.99.

Whether for business or home use, this HD-generation 720p resolution webcam delivers amazing clarity for video chat and conferencing, while the compact and versatile form factor makes it the perfect notebook accessory for anyone on-the-go or away from home. With a wide-angle auto focus lens, exceptional image quality even in low-light conditions and a built-in microphone, the Hercules Dualpix HD720p is a better way to stay in touch.

Depending on whether the Dualpix HD720p is mounted horizontally or vertically on the notebook screen, it will automatically rotate the picture angle and detect the user’s position. This innovative feature means the camera can capture images much closer to the screen and achieve a more natural ‘eye-to-eye’ conversation. The Hercules Xtra Controller Pro software suite also enables users to share photos, videos, live music tracks, during the conversation and eliminates having to send these files prior to the virtual meeting.
