Hercules unveils its new webcam: Hercules Dualpix HD720p Emotion

London, November 8, 2010 - Welcome to the very latest member of the Hercules HD family of webcams: the webcam that lets all users enjoy true high-definition 720p video and share it with friends and family, for conversations full of emotion.
With video chats now moving into high-definition, and users keen to share their HD videos on their favorite social networking websites (YouTubeTM, FacebookTM, amongst others), the new Hercules Dualpix HD720p Emotion couldn’t have arrived at a better time!

Equipped with a HD720p sensor, Hercules Dualpix HD720p Emotion provides a true high-definition experience, with 1280 x 720 video resolution at 30 frames per second: this resolution is perfectly optimized for the latest chat programs, allowing users to get the most out of HD720p video calling. Images are of astonishing quality and perfectly smooth, even under low-light conditions. In photo mode, the webcam lets you take shots at up to 5 megapixel resolution (interpolated mode).

To start chatting right away with friends and family in full screen mode, Hercules offers a tailor-made, unique combination: Hercules Dualpix HD720p Emotion comes bundled with Microsoft Windows Live Essentials 2011 - including the brand-new Windows Live Messenger 2011, which allows for full screen video conversations with exceptional HD quality! Thanks to its close collaboration with Microsoft, Hercules is pleased to provide this exclusive offering, which has also received the "Optimized for Windows Live" certification. All users purchasing the Dualpix HD720p Emotion can therefore be confident that their webcam is perfectly compatible with the world’s most widely-used chat software.

Hercules Dualpix HD720p Emotion features an Autofocus lens for very precise focusing, a microphone for high-quality sound in all your conversations, and comes with an included headset.
In terms of other bundled software, Hercules Webcam Station Evolution automatically converts photos and videos according to how they will be used (email, blog, iPod®, PSPTM, YouTubeTM), and Xtra Controller Pro, also from Hercules, lets users instantly show their photos and videos in the chat window, while they remain displayed onscreen themselves in an overlay window. Now you can use your images to spice up your video conversations in real time. Emotion is guaranteed!

Hercules Dualpix HD720p Emotion is compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (32-bit and 64-bit) and Windows XP SP2-SP3.

Hercules Dualpix HD720p Emotion will be available at a suggested retail price of £49.99 (VAT included), from mid November 2010.
