USB 3.0 WebCam with 1080p60 Streaming Revealed

USB-3-0-1080p-WebCamUSB 3.0 was announced a while back and what we have here is a new webcam designed to be USB 3.0 compliant. It is built by Point Grey and the specs are quite impressive as it can actually capture full HD at 1080p at an impressive 60 frames per second.

Due to the wider bandwidth available on USB 3.0, it allows raw data to be pushed through allowing it to function at the higher resolution and frame rate.

Inside the camera there is a 3 megapixel Sony CMOS sensor that is capable of capturing the 1920×1080 pixels needed to make up the resolution.

It’s a great step forwards and no doubt we will be shortly leaving the grainy webcam days behind moving in to full high definition images at 60 frames per second. Technical details of how it all connects up to a PC can be found over at TG Daily. Via: Everything USB
