User-Friendly Video Calling with Quick-Connect to SKYPE, Instant Messaging & Social Networking Services

Jan 07, 2010, 12:15 ET from Sakar International Inc.

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Video calling and image sharing just got easier as well as clearer with Sakar International's new line of KODAK Webcams, including a top-of-the-line model that features a true 3 megapixel sensor for HD-quality video. All webcams in the series feature one-stop connectivity to the most popular VoIP, IM and social media services, eliminating extra steps typically required to launch video calls and chats or upload images to social networks.

Available at major retailers next month, each of the new webcams is compatible with both PC (WINDOWS XP/VISTA/7) and MAC (OSX 10.5 and above) systems for easy consumer selection. The series includes three auto focus models:

  • KODAK T130 Webcam (MSRP $59.99), with a 1.3 MP sensor, VGA video resolution and 4 MP software-enhanced photo resolution.
  • KODAK L200 Webcam (MSRP $79.99), with a 2 MP sensor, VGA video resolution and 8 MP software-enhanced photo resolution.
  • KODAK P310 HD Webcam (MSRP $99.99), with a 3 MP sensor, HD video @ 1280x720 resolution and 10 MP software-enhanced photo resolution.

The new line also includes the KODAK S100 Webcam, the first driver-free webcam under $30, plus a twin-pack KODAK W100 Webcam containing two S100 models.

Quick-Connect to SKYPE & IM Services

Setting up a video call or video IM session with the new KODAK Webcams is faster and easier than ever. The included Software Control Center for KODAK Webcams enables users to connect to SKYPE as well as AOL, WINDOWS and YAHOO! instant messaging services with a click instead of finding and launching the desired service separately.

Quick-Upload to Social Media

The new webcams also make it easy to send videos and photos to KODAK Gallery, FACEBOOK, MySpace, Flickr, YouTube and/or PHOTOBUCKET. Each new image can either be automatically sent to your preferred service, or dragged and dropped to any supported site (or the appropriate album on your PC) from the temporary storage location on the built-in video/photo manager. No more sorting through your computer's "My Pictures" folder or opening, signing in and navigating through your chosen social media.

Full Video Calling Features

All SKUs come standard with built-in noise canceling microphone, motion detection, pan/tilt, video effects, 3x or 5x digital zoom, and a universal mounting system for desktop or laptop use. They also include an exclusive photo resolution optimizer that automatically returns settings to the maximum resolution after an IM or VoIP session, eliminating the hassle of manually adjusting the sharpness to compensate for your service's bandwidth-saving resolution downgrades.

The new KODAK Webcams are the latest products available under a license agreement between Kodak and Sakar that was announced last year. The webcams are on display at Booth #9841 in Central Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center at the 2010 International CES that opens today.
