Skype at 640 by 480 pixels

… Video chats using Skype, eBay’s popular Internet telephone service, are about to become sharper and more lifelike, at least for those who have high-end new computers and webcams.
Logitech International has released driver software for three webcams that allows them to connect Skype chatters at a resolution of 640 by 480 pixels, the same resolution as a DVD. … [1]

The supported cameras are;

You’ll also need;

How do I make high quality video calls?

  1. The Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 is one of the better webcams I have had the opportunity to use over the years. Its stylish design fits easily on top of my LCD screen, while its functionality and features continue to impress.

    I found a free tool that will allow you to get the lowest and best possible price for the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 or any other webcam. I suggest you download this free tool called the Genie by going to and save money on your purchase.
