Web Cameras

Web cameras are great equipment for your computer. They are basically digital cameras that transmit images to the computer. Web cameras have increased in popularity with the higher number of people using them to chat with friends and family around the world.

A Web camera functions by taking a number of frames, or still images, within a short period of time. Using computer software, these frames are then played together quickly to generate the look of streaming video. A frame rate of 30 fps is recommended for any web camera you purchase.

When selecting the right Web camera, it is necessary to think about the resolution that the Web camera offers. If the Web camera is to be used for video conferencing, choosing a camera with the highest resolution, or your image might appear blurry or grainy.
