SINGAPORE - June 16, 2003 - Creative Technology Ltd. (NASDAQ: CREAF), the worldwide leader in digital entertainment solutions for PC users, today announced the PC-CAM 880, the breakthrough camera that combines features of high-end digital still cameras with the versatility of a PC camera, priced at only US$149.99.
At this phenomenal price, the PC-CAM 880 is able to deliver images of up to 3 megapixels (2048x1536), which can be easily previewed with the camera's full color LCD display. With removable memory and TV output, the Creative PC-CAM 880 makes it easy to transfer and share images with family and friends. In addition to these great digital camera features found on much higher priced competitive products, the PC-CAM 880 also serves as a web camera when attached to the PC, for video instant messaging and video email.
"With the PC-CAM 880, webcam users who want to jump into digital photography or digital camera users who want to add video to instant messaging on the PC can do so with one camera at an incredible low price," said Clarence Lim, brand manager at Creative Labs Asia. "You don't even need to connect to the PC to share images and video with family and friends either; just view the built-in LCD or connect to the TV output cable to display on a TV or record to a VCR."
The PC-CAM 880 can be used right out of the box with 16MB of built in memory, capturing up to 17 high-quality images at 2048x1536, 29 images at 1600x1200, 112 images at 800x600 resolution or up to 76 seconds of video while detached from the PC. With its SD/MMC card memory expansion slot, the PC-CAM 880 enables users to take an unlimited number of images by adding additional memory cards.
True to its PC-CAM heritage, the PC-CAM 880 doubles as a desktop PC web camera. The included swivel base allows for hands free video conferencing over the Internet. Enhancing, editing and sharing photos and videos is a snap with the included ArcSoft® PhotoImpression®, ArcSoft VideoImpression® and ArcSoft Multimedia Email software.
