Digital products company Logitech is expanding the ways in which you can stream and create videos with its new Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam.
Made for video professionals, bloggers and hobbyists, this new webcam gives you flexibility to do more than traditional webcams, including live streaming, shooting videos from two different angles or video chatting on your Mac computer.
Introduced today, Oct. 16, the Logitech webcam makes it easy to create professional-looking high-definition videos from your Mac, whether you’re a professor recording a lecture or a musician demonstrating how to play the guitar, says the company.
You can stream live video directly to Ustream, and use an iPad, iPhone or Mac to control and preview the video. The Logitech Broadcaster can also act as a second video camera, adding a complementary perspective to capture content beyond your Mac’s embedded webcam.
And, its wireless connectivity gives you the ability to shoot from virtually any angle you want. For richer and more dynamic video content, you can easily capture the two views and stitch them together.
“The Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam lets you stream and record like a pro,” said Mike Culver, vice president of brand development for consumer computing platforms at Logitech.
Enhancing mobility and creativity, the Logitech Broadcaster is also compatible with popular Mac video applications. You can record video with QuickTime or Photo Booth, edit and view videos with iMovie or Final Cut Pro, and video chat with FaceTime, iChat or Skype.
The Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning this month, October, for a suggested retail price of $199.99.
