Logitech unleashes C920 HD webcam, allows you to video chat in 1080p, still doesn’t improve friend’s webcam

Logitech has unveiled their brand new C920 HD webcam, and one which is make your future Video calls very pleasant (for the other person at least because they get to see you), because the new model One-up’s it from the previous 720p model by allowing you to make Skype conferences in full 1080p goodness. If Windows Live Messenger is more your style, then unfortunately it can only do a max of 720p on that (which is still better than non-HD). Of course, the hitch here is that you’ll need the latest version of Skype (come on, it’s not that hard to update you lazy people!).

Furthermore, the C920 HD can also take 15 megapixel shots (obviously the quality is yet to be seen and reviewed, but the number sounds great!), and the addition of H.264 compression technology means that you can record Full HD videos and upload them much quicker, thanks to the compression (without losing any quality we hope). The Webcam itself is designed with Logitech’s Fluid Crystal Technology, and uses Carl Zeiss Optics, and a 20-step autofocus feature that will no doubt please those of you who want an external Webcam with 2012’s technology.

This dual microphone, stereo recording C920 will cost you a cool $100 (not a bad price if we say so ourselves) and it should be out at the end of this month in The United States, and soon thereafter internationally.
