Dualpix Exchange Webcam

Hercules packs the Dualpix Exchange with 2 Mega Pixels, a built in microphone, and their own Webcam Station Evolution SE software puts all the controls in your hands. Join Benchmark Reviews as we put Dualpix Exchange to the test.

With the Dualpix Exchange webcam, Hercules offers a ready-to-use solution right out of the box. This webcam complies with the new "USB 2.0 Video Class" standard, allowing users to connect and use it immediately with all available instant messaging applications. No need to install drivers or software! With maximum resolutions reaching 2 mega pixels in Photo mode and 1280 X 960 in Video mode, this webcam is the ideal companion for chat sessions.

Why ideal? The Dualpix Exchange webcam is not only convenient, but also powerful in its ability to capture all your expressions and emotions shared with friends and family. The low-light capture quality and back-lighting feature provide superb clarity even at night. The travelling zoom feature keeps the view centred on your face and with the webcam's sharp definition and natural 30-frames-per-second smoothness, it’s almost as if you and your chat buddy are in the same room. The modern design and lacquered black finish reflect the webcam’s simplicity and refinement.

I was personally very impressed with Dualpix Exchange when i first recieved it, with it's compact size and beautiful looks. The webcam has a beautiful black finish and a fairly long usb cable. I have had experience with Creative Web Cam Pro, which i have to mention did not look anything close to this webcam, and built in microphone was something i always dreamed about.
