Most standalone webcams are still trying to capture video at 3-megapixels, but Samsung's gone and pasted a 5-megapixel webcam on the 24-inch Scopia VC240 monitor. Now we can finally see topless Jesus in all his HD glory!
The Scopia webcam captures 720p video at 30fps with a bitrate of 2 megabits. It also supports V2oIP conferencing technology and uses h.264 compression. Obviously, this thing will never win any design awards, but considering this is an enterprise-oriented product and is far more powerful than any comparable product, I'm not sure Samsung cares.
As for actual monitor specs, the Scopia VC240 has 1920x1080p full HD resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, and a 170 degree viewing angle. It will also be available in the fall. Oh, did I mention it costs $US2000. Well it does. [Only Gizmos]
