May 15, 2012, Taipei, Taiwan - Genius is pleased to announce the world's first 120° ultra wide angle 1080p HD webcam, WideCam F100. Able to capture the whole boardroom or entire family within a single frame, this Genius high definition webcam is ideal for both business professionals as well as home users.
During conference calls or long talks with grandma, the 120° wide angle view makes uncomfortable crowding around the webcam a thing of the past. The high-quality manual focus lens ensures well-defined video of the entire room. Letting everyone captured in the WideCam F100's wide view to talk freely, the built-in sensitive microphone reduces distortion and allows everyone to be clearly heard.
For home users, sending videos and pictures to your favorite social network is easy with the WideCam F100. Recorded HD 1080p video and 12MP mega-pixel photos can be directly sent to YouTube, Flickr, and Twitter using the included webcam software, Arcsoft Webcam Companion 4. With the software, not only is recording video and snapshots made easy, but tweaking them to perfection is also simplified with the smart editing tools.
The WideCam F100 can be conveniently clipped onto any size monitor or screen thanks to its universal clip, and with the USB extension cable the distance between the WideCam F100 and the computer can be up to 10 feet. The base rotates a full 360 degrees allowing for complete control and versatility whether at home or at the office.
Genius' WideCam F100 is already available in the US and Canada for the suggested retail price of $59.99.
