Microsoft LifeCam does 1080p

The latest Halo release isn’t the only news Microsoft has to offer this week. The company has announced the LifeCam Studio video conferencing camera — their first 1080p webcam allowing 16:9 widescreen high-definition video calls via Windows Live Messenger 2011.

The LifeCam Studio 1080p sensor is twice as large as the 720p sensor (currently available on the $49 HD-5001) and according to Microsoft will allow more light into the image, creating detailed images in both bright sun and low lighting situations. The LifeCam also boasts improved auto focus, TrueColor technology, and ClearFrame technology.

The webcam also houses a high-fidelity microphone, USB connection, and takes still images at 2304 x 1728 resolution. The camera can be mounted on a tripod and rotated 360° for more flexible recording positions.

The LifeCam HD webcam is now available at BestBuy for $99 and comes with a worldwide three-year limited hardware warranty. Windows Live Messenger 2011 will support HD video via the LifeCam webcam this fall.
