  • Ideally, on the right-hand side of your laptop’s screen
Available options:
  • Vertical position: The webcam rotates on its axis, to always look you straight in the eye!
  • Horizontal position: The webcam automatically detects its position and rotates the image accordingly to better capture your gaze!
  • Perfect above your laptop’s screen
Available options:
  • Vertical position: To better capture your gaze and get rid of the feeling that you’re not looking your contacts in the eye!
  • Horizontal position: Simply rotate the webcam and it automatically detects its new position and rotates the image accordingly! Once you’ve finished chatting, simply rotate your webcam and it won’t be in the way of your applications’ field of vision.

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!

Autofocus
Automatic adjustment of a webcam's focus allowing a face or object to always remain clear according to its distance from the webcam.
Digital zoom
Zoom carried out via software thanks to a mathematical algorithm allowing for the "enlargement" of pixels.
Chat
Real-time text conversation over the Internet.
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.
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.
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.
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.
