Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam
Highly versatile, Wi-Fi webcam for Mac®, iPad®, and iPhone®
Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam makes it easy to share your passions and interests with the world. Whether it’s streaming a live performance of your band, recording a cooking demo for a blog or showing off a home improvement project over a video call, the Broadcaster lets you present yourself like a pro.
Simple, one-touch broadcasting on Ustream®
Instantly broadcast live to a global audience on Ustream, a popular and free service for video streaming on the web. Simply connect the Broadcaster to your Wi-Fi network and start broadcasting directly from the camera to your audience with the press of a button*. For more control, you can also use the Broadcaster app on your Mac, iPad or iPhone to manage the broadcast, post announcements on Facebook® and Twitter™, and interact with viewers in real time.
Freedom to record like a pro
Record video over Wi-Fi directly to your Mac, iPad or iPhone. No cords, no restrictions. For a richer, more professional video, you can also pair the Broadcaster with your Mac’s built-in camera using the Broadcaster app and record two different views simultaneously. Then use iMovie® or Final Cut Pro® to edit and stitch together the two recordings for a polished video that’s ready for sharing.
Add a different POV to video calls
Broadcaster enhances Skype™ video calls by adding a second point of view you can share with the person on the other end. Press a button to instantly toggle between the built-in camera view and the view from the Broadcaster**. And since the camera is cordless and compact, you can move around and point it at precisely what you wish to show for more dynamic video calls.
Stream and record in HD 720p
Go beyond built-in camera quality with HD 720p video that is sharper and more vibrant. Plus, Logitech Fluid Crystal™ Technology delivers a smoother video experience without choppiness. Need to focus on a hard-to-see detail? Simply switch on the illumination lamp for greater clarity.
Carry case doubles as a stand
Take the Broadcaster everywhere thanks to a hard plastic carrying case that doubles as a stand. A magnetic base on the lid makes mounting your camera effortless and lets you easily adjust it for the perfect angle. For more versatility, the lid also attaches to your favorite tripod.
