This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of faceVsion Technology USA. All opinions are 100% mine.My husband had Skype for a while and talked about how neat it was, but I didn't really know what it was all about until he deployed. He insisted I get it; I thought it might be an annoying process or require money but lo and behold it is downloadable for free.
Skype to skype text messages, voice calls, AND video calls are free.
I convinced my brother in Nebraska to get Skype too and have been talking to him almost every day since he got it.
It is amazing that my husband can call me from so far away via his computer and I answer with my computer. Instead of a 15-minute telephone call every few weeks I can talk to him on the computer every 2 or 3 days sometimes for several hours at a time. It is almost like having him home again in the living room with me.
If you need a few more pixels in your video chats but don't automatically have the processor power to manage them all, you need a Skype HD-certified camera with an on-board hardware encoding.
The TouchCam N1 from faceVsion is the latest to ship, a $120 model that manages 720p recording and also includes dual unidirectional mics to ensure that your voice gets through loud and clear from any angle. That seems to be the only real advantage over the Freetalk Everyman HD, which recently went on sale itself -- for $70. The N1 does also offer a wider 78-degree lens compared to the Freetalk's 58, but whether that's worth the extra cheddar is something you'll have to decide.
If you love to use Skype, you are going to want to check out the video cams on faceVsion. The faceVision on line store is the place to shop for the best video cams. I talk to my family quite a bit in the Philippines and that is why I want to make sure I have an excellent video cam. I hate it when I am talking to my family and the quality of the video is poor. It is hard to see and the sounds quality can be bad as well. That is why you should think about getting a HD quality video cam via FV touchcam N1.
If you have not seen it the FV touchcam N1 is the first Internet streaming true HD webcam for Skype video calls. We think when budget cycle comes up and the coffers are filled we are going to push for a FV ExpressCombo to help make support calls be more personable and have the ability to instruct hardware installations as a demonstration and watch to make sure it is being done correctly.
