Just as early as the VideoPhone was breathing its last breath, the webcam was making headlines. Of course, those early headlines were usually (and rightfully) associated with the pornography industry, since there weren't too many people willing to look at choppy video for any other reason. But once again, technology (dial-up Internet) was crippling the idea. It would have to wait until the turn of the century before people would finally give webcams, grandson of the PicturePhone, its day.
Perhaps the time has finally come; or perhaps it has already returned and we are in the middle of the third act. Either way, the World Wide Web introduced the most recent vision of the video communications: the aptly named webcam. Logitech, one of the industries pioneering forces, has constantly offered consumers reliable peripheral solutions. In this review, Benchmark Reviews will evaluate the progression of technology into a product which hopes to establish itself as the pinnacle of PicturePhone evolution: Logitech's QuickCam Ultra Vision Special Edition Webcam.
