Microsoft unveils budget LifeCam VX-2000

MS LifeCam VX-2000

Microsoft wrapped up its hardware introductions today in releasing the LifeCam VX-2000. The webcam is aimed at the most basic of desktop users who just need enough for video chat and has a VGA resolution camera sensor with most extras in software. Aside from a Windows Live Call button for those using Microsoft's IM network, the camera's other central feature is its ability interpolate still images and simulate 1.3-megapixel shots.

With Live, the VX-2000 can apply visual effects to the outbound image and leave pre-recorded video messages for contacts that aren't available when the message shows. Any IM app that supports USB webcams should also work on at least a basic level. The new starter LifeCam ships in June for $30.
