Microsoft new series of HD webcams feature TrueColor Technology, a new image processing technology that provides impressive colour and brightness in even the worst lighting conditions.

The new range, comprising of two cameras, the LifeCam HD-5000 and LifeCam HD-6000 for Notebooks, has been designed to give crystal-clear viewing, no matter where you are. TrueColor Technology automatically adjusts the picture quality to provide a more colourful video whether outside in bright sunshine or in the living room with low light in the evening. These LifeCams also feature 720p HD sensors and Auto Focus technology. In addition, TrueColor will be available with the recently launched LifeCam Cinema through a software update.

Microsoft’s new image processing technology analyses the environment, automatically adjusting the LifeCam settings to provide bright and colourful video. TrueColor Technology includes face tracking technology, developed by Microsoft Research, which can detect a person’s face and help ensure it’s not overexposed or underexposed, so the video call picture can look great even in the most challenging lighting scenarios.

Launching with Microsoft’s new TrueColor Technology, the LifeCam HD-5000 offers high quality video in most lighting scenarios and is claimed to be the only webcam on the market to offer 720p HD widescreen video. It also features a flexible attachment base that bends to fit on most surfaces, including on top of flat-screen monitors and notebook screens, or directly on the desk, so people can use it at home on the desktop or with their notebook while on the road.

The LifeCam HD-6000 includes TrueColor Technology, 720p HD widescreen video, Auto Focus and a design just for notebooks. The LifeCam HD-6000 features a 360-degree rotation view so people can point the webcam in any direction to share more with friends and family.
