Priced at only US$69.99, the Live! Cam Connect HD features built-in H.264 hardware video processing to ensure smooth, fast video without compromising image quality or taxing PC system resources.
“We designed the Live! Cam Connect HD to deliver outstanding video and sound quality. Using a high-performance liquid crystal auto focus lens and noise-canceling microphone, the Live!
