On the heels of Wednesday’s release of the new Movie Maker software, Microsoft today is launching a new high-def Web cam device that can be used with the editing suite.
The $80 “LifeCam Cinema” captures 720p video in a widescreen format. It also has an autofocus capability that works on subjects as close as 4 inches from the device and captures wide-angle images, up to 74 degrees.
Also announced today is a new headset, the LifeChat LX-1000 with a noise-canceling microphone. Both will be available in September.
