faceVsion TouchCam N1 HD Video Streaming Webcam

faceVsion TouchCam N1 HD Video Streaming Webcam

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.

Voyage Of The Dawn Trailer

Voyage Of The Dawn Trailer
Official promo sails in

Voyage Of The Dawn Trailer

With Disney having ditched its association with Walden Media’s Narnia franchise after disappointing box office returns for Prince Caspian, it’s been left to Fox to pick up the slack and hang the rigging for the third outing, The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader. And while the trailer was originally planned to arrive in conjunction with Toy Story 3, the marketing department proved to be leakier than the painting used in the film, with grabs cropping up all over the web. Now the full official teaser trailer has arrived.

The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader draws the younger two Pevensie children, Edmund (Skander Keynes) and Lucy (Georgie Henley) back to Narnia, dragging along unwilling and annoying cousin Eustace (Son of Rambow’s Will Poulter).

There, they find King Caspian (Ben Barnes), rodent warrior Reepicheep (with Bill Nighy taking over voice duties) and more requiring their help with yet another epic mission, this time to the Lonely Isles and beyond. Can they survive encounters with dragons, merfolk and lost warriors and make it to the edge of the world? Probably, but that would be spoiling things.

Michael Apted took the helm for this one, and from the looks of the trailer, the budget has been trimmed, though the Australian locations helped with the wow factor. Take a look at the footage below and decide for yourself whether this latest entry can keep the Narnia series afloat.

Exclusive: War Horse Cast Announced

Exclusive: War Horse Cast Announced
Best of British in Spielberg's next film


Exclusive: War Horse Cast Announced

Steven Spielberg has rounded up a clutch of quality British acting talent to head up the cast of War Horse, his first film to reach the screens since 2008’s Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. Emily Watson, Peter Mullan, David Thewlis and Benedict Cumberbatch have all signed on the dotted line, but taking the lead (or the reins) is young actor Jeremy Irvine, who has earned his stripes with both the National Youth Theatre and the RSC.

War Horse traces the friendship between Joey, a farm horse sold into the British army and sent off to serve on the battlefields of France during World War 1, and Albert (Irvine), his young owner. Watson and Mullan play Albert’s parents. Cumberbatch, so good as the quiz captain in Starter For 10 and the oily confectionery magnate in Atonement, will play military man Major Stewart.

Rounding out the internationally diverse cast are Niels Arestrup (A Prophet, The Diving Bell And The Butterfly) as the grandfather of a young French girl (Celine Buckens) who takes Joey in, plus Nicolas Bro, David Kross, Leonard Carow, Rainer Bock, Robert Emms and Patrick Kennedy. Also in talks to join the cast are Tom Hiddleston, who is on villain duties as Loki in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, and Stephen Graham, This Is England’s powerhouse last seen on the big screen in Michael Mann’s Public Enemies.

Adapted by Lee Hall (best known for Billy Elliot) and Richard Curtis from Michael Morpurgo’s novel and Nick Stafford’s stage adaptation, the story has the scope for the kind of epic action and intimate, heartrending drama that is Spielberg’s forte. On paper, this touches base with Spielberg’s underrated Empire Of The Sun, a rite of passage in the theatre of (a very different) war, and that is a mouth-watering prospect.

Produced by Spielberg and long-time producing partner Kathleen Kennedy, War Horse starts shooting in the UK in August, the first time the director has shot here since Saving Private Ryan. This gives Spielberg exactly a year to get the movie ready for its August 10, 2011 US release. No word yet on a UK date.
