Logitech today announced that its flagship Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 is now Mac-compatible. The newest Logitech HD webcam is not only plug-and-play ready with iChat, Photo Booth and FaceTime, but with the latest Logitech software for Macs, Mac fans can now experience Full HD 1080p video recording and one-click uploading to Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, as well as seamless integration with the editing and management functions of iPhoto and iMovie. And for video calls in HD 720p, Mac users can now enjoy the fast, free and easy-to-use Logitech Vid HD for Mac.
“Today we’re excited to bring Mac fans the first webcam to deliver HD 720p video calling and Full HD 1080p video recording,” said Eric Kintz, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s video business, in the press reelase. “In addition to offering the highest level of video quality in the top-of-the-line C910 webcam and the plug-and-play ease with a variety of Mac applications, the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 is now available with software that’s designed especially for the Mac.”
In addition to Apple applications such as FaceTime, iChat and Photo Booth, the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 will work with virtually every major video-calling client, including Skype, Yahoo! Messenger and Gmail Voice and Video Chat.
If you have a Mac computer, the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 is easy to set up. There’s no need to purchase additional hardware — simply plug in the webcam and you’ll be ready to make video calls on iChat and Face Time — as well as use the C910 webcam with Photo Booth and QuickTime.
The newest Logitech webcam also works with Windows-based computers. And if you’ve already purchased the Logitech Webcam C910 webcam for your PC, and you also have a Mac, your webcam is now ready for making HD video calls on Logitech Vid HD with your Apple computer.
The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 lets you record video in 1080p and make video calls in 720p on Logitech Vid HD. It also features premium autofocus (extreme close-ups up to 7 cm) and stereo audio with two mics, one on either side of the webcam lens.
The Logitech Webcam C910 webcam makes it a snap to record, edit and upload 1080p videos to Facebook or YouTube, or post a video link to Twitter, so your video looks sharp when it goes viral. (To record and upload 1080p video, you’ll need to download the Logitech Webcam Software for Mac at www.logitech.com/c910.)
When you want to snap a photo of yourself or your family to send to loved ones, the C910 delivers 10-megapixel pics that you can e-mail with a few clicks. Plus, since it’s compatible with iPhoto, you can touch up your snapshots before you post them to Facebook.
The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 is currently available in the U.S., Europe and Asia for a suggested retail price of US$99.99.
