Fairfax, VA, United States, 2006/07/21 - Individual webcams may not quite rival teleportation in the futuristic world of Star Trek but they can bring your online-chatting experience to a whole new level.
In the world of Star Trek, the simple act of conversing with another being from a distant galaxy seldom involved a simple audio feed. Instead, Captain Kirk or Spock would be seen interacting with an alien creature that was somehow in full view, prominently displayed on the large screen monitor of the Star Ship Enterprise.
Today such technology is not only available for large business teleconferencing use; it is now economically feasible for even the most frugal of individuals who want to enhance their home computer experiences. You need not be an alien or have to talk to one to make use of such a camera, not when the installation of a personal webcam with a home computer is now as simple as the connection of a cable to a standard USB 2.0 interface.
The new Vije 1.3 Mega Pixel Deluxe Webcam from Mvix(USA) offers some of the latest in web-casting, remote home monitoring and video conferencing technology. The Vije’s smooth, jitter-free video results in fluid motion reproduction and a viewing sharpness that can take the online chatting experience to a very high level.
The only thing that is "big" about the Vije Webcam is the 1.3 Mega Pixel resolution. For the techies out there, this puts the Vije at 1280 x 1024 pixels, easily the highest on the current market.
An accompanying CD helps the user capture, manage and archive snapshots and video clips with ease. The webcam is perfectly compatible with Yahoo Messenger, AIM, MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger, Skype and many other instant messenger services on the market. With a basic clip stand, the personal webcam may be mounted on any LCD monitor, laptop, notebook, or any other available flat surface nearby.
Not only does the Vije Deluxe Webcam come with a trendy design that includes a half-mirror front panel, the amazingly sharp picture provides the viewer with twice the resolution of other webcams. With the built in microphone and accompanying headset, the user may enjoy clear, echo-free audio and normal conversations.
The retail package contains all the necessary accessories to start using the webcam straight out of the box. At $69 retail, the Vije is well within the budget of anyone looking to upgrade their online experience.
With a new webcam, users still may not utter that famous Star Trek phrase, “Beam me up Scotty.” But once a user’s Vije camera is up and running, he will definitely be tempted to offer a 2006 equivalent, as in “Beam me in Bro’.”
