HD Visuals with Webcams from Overclockers UK
The webcam was invented by research students at Cambridge University in 1991. The camera, which took three images per minute, could be accessed using software that allowed the students to run the images on the internal computer network. The students continued to improve on their idea until the webcam as we know it today took shape. Within a timeframe of 10 years, the PC camera has gone from being a novel new technology to fuelling a host of web-based careers. Now the web camera is an integral part of 21st century life—from conference calls to video bloggers, it connects people across the world and facilitates exchanges that were not previously possible.
Features and Functions of Overclockers UK Webcams
Nowadays there are many HD webcam options available. While many computers have built-in webcams, these often do not produce the same quality result as external ones. Top of the range models are capable of producing incredible full HD 1080p videos and have special features like automatic low-light correction or auto-focus. Even the more affordable modern webcams for sale in the Overclockers UK range offer crisp visuals and built in microphones, so you are assured of quality no matter your budget. Logitech HD webcams feature Logitech Fluid Crystal technology, which automatically adjusts the frame rate, sharpness, colour saturation and audio. What’s more, Logitech has partnered up with Carl Zeiss, meaning they produce the best images possible thanks to the sophisticated lens with integrated auto-focus. Auto-focus, which uses voice coil motors (VCM), and is the same function found in many smartphones, analyses the image and automatically adjusts the optical system to ensure the correct focus. Other functions and features of webcams are noise reduction in the built-in microphone, universal tripod clips, and face tracking. So, although there are plenty of inbuilt laptop webcams and in your average smartphone, if you plan to use your webcam on a regular basis it is worth the small investment in one of the models offered by Overclockers UK to ensure top video quality.
Choosing the Right Webcam for You
When buying a webcam from Overclockers UK you need to consider your webcam application. The primary reason people buy home webcams is to make video calls to their friends or family, particularly if they live far away, but with the world becoming more global, webcams are an integral part of how businesses operate too. Video conferences are an everyday occurrence for many global companies, so to ensure that you maintain a professional image with a smooth video, choose a web camera from Overclockers UK. Aside from established businesses, many new professions have sprung up around online video content. Many YouTube channels, which focus on topics from makeup to IT advice, are in fact successful businesses in their own right that rely heavily on providing their viewers with high-quality, HD videos. Video games have even spawned entire platforms, like Twitch, devoted to live streaming video games and gamers. Some video games now even necessitate the use of a gaming webcam, a trend which could very well increase in future. For these professions a webcam that is able to record top tier HD visuals is absolutely essential to creating and maintaining a viewership. All webcams available for purchase from Overclockers UK provide crisp images, so it is up to you which additional features you want your web camera to have.
