SINGAPORE - July 17, 2003 - Creative Technology Ltd. (NASDAQ: CREAF), the worldwide leader in digital entertainment solutions for PC users, today announced the tiny yet durable WebCam Notebook, with a sleek body form factor just slightly larger than a single AA battery and built-in adjustable notebook clip. Priced at only US$49.99, the Creative WebCam Notebook is slated for availability this month.
"The Creative WebCam Notebook is small enough to fit in a pants pocket, yet it delivers outstanding image and video quality thanks to its true VGA CMOS sensor," said Clarence Lim, brand manager for video at Creative Labs Asia. "Wherever you go, just hook up to any dialup, LAN or wireless Internet connection, clip the camera on your notebook, and plug it into a USB port to enhance business meetings or instant messaging with high-quality video."
The stylish, silver and charcoal Creative WebCam Notebook features an integrated spring-tension clip to attach quickly and securely to notebook monitors. Staying focused is simple with the adjustable focus lens and rotating body that accommodates a variety of viewing angles. The genuine VGA (640x480) sensor means bigger, bolder snapshots for sharing via e-mail or posting images to the web. For protecting the camera during travel, a soft carrying case is included.
The Creative WebCam Notebook comes with ArcSoft® PhotoImpression 4, ArcSoft Multimedia Email, and Microsoft® Netmeeting® software for videoconferencing and sending multimedia e-mail. Creative's own PC-CAM Center for managing snapshots and videos, and WebCam Monitor for motion detection security applications are also included. The Creative WebCam Notebook is also compatible with Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Messenger and virtually all other Windows applications that use a webcam.
