Langenfeld, Germany - Taiwan-based Genius is offering a new infra-red webcam for those who enjoy chatting away the long night hours.
The VideoCAM Trek 310 is intended to produce high-quality pictures even in a room with poor lighting conditions, according to the company's German office in Langenfeld am Rhein.
Good lighting for the subject will no longer be necessary.
The new camera will deliver pictures in VGA with 32 bit colour depth.
Stills can be produced up to a resolution 1.3 megapixels.
Up to 30 frames per second can be transmitted via a USB connection to the computer.
Switchover to infra-red is automatic when the light conditions warrant.
Genius said the camera would be available in Europe immediately at a price of 39.90 euros (48.28 dollars).© 2006 dpa - Deutsche Presse-Agentur
