Microsoft has upped the ante when it comes to webcams, where their LifeCam Studio webcam is the first from the company to deliver sharp high-definition (HD) video with a true 1080p sensor in order to complement Windows Live Messenger 2011, where the latter will offer HD video calling in a 16:9 widescreen format. Hmmm, time to make sure you go for regular facial treatments, otherwise your other half in the long distance relationship would notice your warts and all across a few thousand miles. LifeCam Studio does not only deliver the goods on paper, it also comes in a stunning industrial design as well as boasting a tripod thread which makes it ideal for recording long video captures from different angles. Features include a 360-degree view range and an elongated hood that resembles a high-end camera in order to offer lens protection from stray light, resulting in no more washed-out colors. Expect the LifeCam Studio to retail for $99.95 from later this month onwards, where it will be accompanied by a worldwide three-year limited hardware warranty. Looks like the home video recording scene is going to get all the more interesting, what with crazy frat parties and all. [Press Release]
