09/13/2007 - Hercules continues its offensive on the webcams market


New York, 13 September 2007 - Hercules continues its offensive on the webcams market with the launch of two new devices: the Deluxe Optical Glass and the Classic Silver webcams. The principle behind these devices remains the same as always: to offer an optimum performance/price ratio - the very same one that first set Hercules on the market.


These two webcams, which both feature a built-in microphone, are compatible with Windows VISTA 32 & 64 bits and all videoconferencing software (Windows LiveTM Messenger, SkypeTM, Yahoo!® Messenger, AOL® instant Messenger, etc.)! With a frame rate reaching 30 frames per second and a video resolution of 800 x 600 pixels*, both webcams guarantee sharp and fluid chat sessions!

In addition, their 1.3 Megapixel resolution* allows users to take high-quality still pictures.

The Deluxe Optical Glass webcam differs from the Classic Silver webcam owing to its additional specifications: genuine glass lens, included headset with microphone and automatic face tracking feature - in addition to 3x zoom! The Deluxe Optical Glass features a shiny metal finish, on the webcam head and lens ring, whereas the Classic Silver features a brushed metal finish.


The outer designs of both webcams grace them with a very technological, yet streamlined appearance. These webcams’ unique aesthetics are based on a very flat design, and turn tem into genuine eye-catchers when they are attached to laptops, flat screens or CRT screens by means of their universal attachment clamp. Both devices also feature four convenient lighting diodes, which guarantee sharp and bright images even in low-light conditions.

The Deluxe Optical Glass and the Classic Silver offer 360° horizontal rotation and 60° vertical rotation angles. With their 1.80 metre cable, these devices are genuinely suited to all locations.

Both the Deluxe Optical Glass and the Classic Silver webcams are equipped with the Hercules Webcam Station Evolution SE software. Among other features, this software enables users to take still pictures using 3 modes: simple, continuous and timer; video captures are a simple one-click operation. Finally, a most convenient feature - all captures are automatically resized for email attachments.

The Hercules Classic Silver will be available in September 2007 at the recommended retail price of 19.90€ incl. sales tax, and the Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass will be available in October 2007 at the recommended retail price of 24.90€ incl. sales tax.
