In total Creative released three new webcams that deliver “a far superior video and audio experience than any integrated web camera can deliver” for Mac and PC users.
Topping the range is their Creative Live! Cam Connect HD 1080. As its moniker suggests, it records video in Full HD 1080p resolution, will snap still shots in 18MPs and includes superior noise cancelling technologies. Just like Creative’s SoundBlaster Axx, this webcam suppresses noise outside of an established zone, allowing the user to hold a conversation free from whatever interference fills the background.
“With the Creative Live! Cam Connect HD 1080 we are introducing the first web camera with our CrystalVoice technology, surpassing the capabilities of integrated cameras and web cameras alike with precision voice accuracy and ultimate clarity,” said Low Long Chye, Director of Product Marketing for Creative.
“We’re excited to implement technologies from our award-winning audio solutions into a web camera to provide a superior communications experience.”

The following Cam Connect HD is a Skype certified video camera that captures 720p HD recordings at 30 frames per second. The 8MP camera has built in H.264 hardware video processing for fluid video that doesn’t tax your PC’s resources.
“The power of built-in hardware encoding ensures that the quality of video communications far surpasses what any integrated web camera can offer,” said Ryan Richards, Creative’s Product Marketing Manager.
Patented technology has been used to silence the liquid crystal auto focus lens so that it is not picked up by the camera’s sensitive microphone.
