Crisp, clear video calling is fast, free and easy.
Video calls have always offered the promise of connection to your distant friends and family. But for many of us, getting the hardware and 3rd party software to work has been a challenge. Isn’t it about time for an all-in-one webcam and software solution designed to make video calling easy for everyone? Wait no more. Your Logitech webcam comes with new Logitech Vid, the easiest video-calling application ever. Vid one-click-to-call software works seamlessly, right out of the box, with any new or existing Logitech webcam. So you can just relax and enjoy sharp, clear video conversations without hassles. And it’s also free for anyone you call, no matter what webcam they use.
Easy set up
Vid keeps things simple from the start. It’s set up when your webcam is. So you’re ready to call right away. In fact, you can set up Vid in half the steps it takes with major instant-messaging services. When you make a call, Vid connects you to friends using their email addresses. No screen names, extra accounts to create, or third-party software to download. And Vid works whether you’re using a PC or a Mac computer, a stand-alone webcam or a built-in one. Other free software offers video calling as another hard-to-find feature in a long list of features. Vid presents a simple, intuitive interface where every element is designed to help you make a video call the moment your webcam is ready. Each of your contacts is represented by a thumbnail picture. Simply click the picture of the person you want to contact and Vid starts your video call. Click. Chat. Simple as that.
It’s free and that simple.
Vid software is free with your new or existing Logitech webcam. It’s also free for everyone you invite to connect with you, regardless of what webcam they have. Want to add a friend to your call list? Simply choose “Add a friend” to send them an email invitation and software link. Once they sign up, you’re both set for free one-click calling—no strings attached.
Crystal-clear video chats
All of this simplicity is powered by the Logitech SightSpeed network, a groundbreaking framework designed specifically for video calling. It’s also how Logitech Vid can deliver crisp, clear video and audio without compromises or complications. See how real video calling can be with the Logitech Webcam C500 and Vid.
Logitech webcams—a better video calling experience by design
From the moment you make your first video call, you’ll see why Logitech is the top choice of webcam users worldwide. Logitech designs every webcam from the ground up to give you dramatically clearer video and sound than other webcams at the same price. It’s not just about features like lens quality, sensor resolution and software. It’s how the sum of the parts adds up to a better video calling experience for you.
Enjoy a premium video calling experience on Logitech Vid or Skype. With either free service, you can stream your video calls at up to 30 frames per second for an even smoother, more detailed picture than standard video.
RightLight Technology puts you in the perfect light
Making a late-night video call from a dimly lit room? The webcam’s integrated RightLight technology automatically corrects for poor lighting, so the person you’re calling sees you perfectly. No shadows covering your face. No need to adjust the lights. The webcam does all the work, so you can just relax and enjoy the conversation.
RightSound Technology and built-in microphone for clear chats
Trying to carry on a video conversation while your dog is barking outside the door? Chat away. The integrated microphone with RightSound Technology automatically cancels distracting background noises and “voice, voice, voice” echoes. So, your every word is clearly heard. And if you want your video call to be more private, just add a headset.
Logitech Video Effects make video calls entertaining
Add a fun, artistic twist to your video calls with hundreds of special effects. Transform your appearance with animated avatar characters that mimic your facial expressions. Add face accessories like quirky hats and glasses. Or use fun filters to turn your image retro, neon or creepy as a ghost.
Versatile universal clip attaches easily to any notebook or desktop monitor
Do you want a webcam you can use at home and on the road? You got it. The adjustable clip mounts easily and securely to home monitors and mobile notebooks alike. Whether your computer has a flat screen, widescreen or anything in between, this webcam fits it. Works with all instant messaging programs for hassle-free calling.
All you need for video calling is the webcam, a high-speed Internet connection and software with video calling capability. We recommend Logitech Vid video calling software for fast, easy and free face-to-face connections. You can also download other IM programs online. Unlike some brands, Logitech webcams work with all instant messaging programs—yours and whomever you call, so getting connected is hassle-free.
