FaceVision FV TouchCam N1 unboxing video

FV_TouchCam_N1_side If you’ve ever used a webcam for talking to friends over MSN or Skype the chances are you’ve been limited to QVGA or maybe VGA quality video. Webcams tend to yield noisy, grainy results. However FaceVision are looking to change all this with their FV TouchCam N1 HD webcam which, I believe, is the first HD webcam to make it to market.

Capable of 720p at up to 22fps the N1 compresses and sends the video with H.264 compression. At the moment the N1 is only compatible with Windows PC’s running Skype 4.2 (with a special driver provided) but I hope that Mac version will be made available soon.

The Gadget Show are going to feature the N1 later in the week here in the UK but you saw it here first! The FV TouchCam N1 HD is currently exclusive to so head over there if you want to pick one up!

The unboxing video follows:
