Microsoft is providing an exciting and easy new way to share photos and memories with two new webcams — a desktop unit, the LifeCam VX-7000, and a notebook unit, the LifeCam NX-3000 — and their connection to Photo Swap, a feature that allows consumers to share digital photos with friends and family and see their reactions in real time. The LifeCams’ sleek new design blends into the PC monitor, allowing consumers to concentrate on the important things in life: connecting and sharing with friends and family.
Sharing Is a Snap With Windows Live Messenger
The Microsoft® LifeCam line continues to work closely with Windows Live™ Messenger, the world’s largest instant messaging network,1 to make video calls2 easy and now more meaningful than ever with quick access to Photo Swap, which lets users share digital photos live during a video conversation. One click of the Photo Swap icon opens a window next to the video call so users can pick available photos on their PC and flip through them with their friend. Photo Swap is easy to use and works like a virtual photo album, allowing consumers to see and hear the reactions of their friends and family in real time as they view the pictures together.
The Photo Swap feature is now available in the entire line of LifeCams and complements the existing LifeCam features for Windows Live users that include the following:
