Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 Sharp Video WebCam
The Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 brings a unique new design to webcams with a bendable attachment base that molds to virtually any monitor, including flat screens and notebooks, or sits directly on the desk. To complement the inventive design, this webcam provides consumers with the option to choose their favorite color from the following: Cool Blue, Lucky Green and Fire Red.

Optimized for use with Windows Live Messenger, the LifeCam VX-5000 features MSN Photo Swap, which allows users to share and swap photos live during a video call. The VX-5000 also features quality audio and video performance with VGA optics, high-definition (HD) still photographs at 1.3 megapixels (MP), and a built-in unidirectional microphone for crystal-clear audio.

Background and Research: Webcam Wonder
Our research has found that customers are using their webcams in more places and on multiple computers, so Microsoft Hardware created a webcam that is perfect for use with both notebook and desktop computers. The unique attachment base allows it to mold to virtually any screen, or sit directly on the desk.

MSN Photo Swap is a special feature that lets consumers share digital photos in mid-video conversation and see real-time reactions as both callers view the pictures. Digital camera owners have on average more than 1,200 photos stored on their computer,1 and Photo Swap helps bring those pictures to life. Using Windows Live Messenger, consumers can easily share pictures from summer vacations or holiday gatherings.
