“We’re bringing the best combination of hardware, software and services together to deliver superior online communications experiences,” said Michael Cowan, product marketing manager for Microsoft Hardware. “These new products will enable our customers to easily take advantage of today’s VoIP technology for greater social interaction.” The Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000 offers the highest-resolution video (2.0 megapixels) and still photography (7.6 megapixels interpolated) on the market.

This notebook webcam is uniquely designed for mobility and durability. The LifeCam’s lens is fully collapsible and retracts inside the body of the webcam when not in use. The built-in unidirectional microphone offers unprecedented audio performance, rivaling even CD audio quality. For added convenience, the versatile attachment base allows for easy and secure placement on most laptop screens.
