Creative Live Cam Voice review

 

The Creative Live Cam Voice is a well-rounded camera for IM and Internet-based voiceconferencing. We like its audio options and clear, vivid images and its plethora of image adjustability, physical flexibility, and ample software, but we weren't...

Stable stand; ample physical flexibility; impressive software bundle; three audio options; advanced image adjust options.

Noise is visible in still and moving images; fast movement in video looks blurry; must switch the driver to use video effects; occasionally fails to capture photos; features launch in separate windows instead of one main interface.

With beefed-up audio features, the Creative Live Cam Voice is one of the best overall cameras for IM and Internet-based voiceconferencing.

Creative Live! Cam Voice

 

Perfect for Skype users, the Live! Cam Voice shows off Creative's audio pedigree.

Adaptive-array microphones • Wide-angle lens • Headset included

Lengthy installation process • Poor low-light performance

Creative Live! Cam Voice

 

Creative's Live! Cam Voice is its top-of-the-range webcam with a 1.3 megapixel sensor and a nifty noise cancelling mic.

However, I found that the WebCam Centre software quite buggy even with the latest updates and it was consistently unable to detect the camera, even though it was fine in Skype.

Creative Live! Cam Voice

 

Creative's latest webcam promises to cut out background sound so all that is transmitted is your voice rather than all that stuff in the background. But can the webcam with two microphones and a handsfree kit thrown in for good measure deliver?...

Skype certified, wide angle, headset included in the box, two mics to cutout background noise

Noise on images

Good sound, poor picture makes this a webcam that is perhaps more expensive than it should be. However it's not all bad news, we do like the wide angle lens and if you are looking to fit lots of you in the picture to talk to grandparents on the other...

Creative Live! Cam Voice review

 

Ditch the headset and say hello to Live! Cam Voice

Array microphone ; 1.3-megapixel video/5-megaixel photo image ; Software bundle

Ball joint base, too light to sit on its own

The superior sound quality captured by the array microphone is worth the extra price

Creative Live Cam Voice

 

Despite its lauded audio options and Adaptive Array Microphone technology – which removes background noise for maximum clarity in conversation – we can't help thinking that, besides a cheaper price tag, the Creative Live doesn't represent much of a...

As webcams go, this is a good stab. With its excellent audio capabilities, the Cam Voice should be viewed as a microphone with a camera rather than a camera with a mic. It's far from perfect, but the technology is gradually getting there. And did we...

Creative's exclamation mark naming returns in a webcam that really doesn't deserve it.

Review: Creative Live! Cam Voice

 

Get started in video calling and recording.

Good quality, well rounded package, plenty of decent features/extras

Expensive if you're only making an upgrade, headset can be uncomfortable

Everything a beginner could need and with enough interesting extra features to make it a worthwhile upgrade to an existing webcam. The editing software isn't groundbreaking but makes up for it by being simple to use.

Creative - Live!Cam Voice

 

Creative has always been justly applauded for its research and development into audio equipment for the PC, from the basic SoundBlaster to the highly gamer-friendly X-Fi F8tal1ty, and thus it comes as no surprise that the ...

A very practical addition to the Webcam family which will enable more stress-free communication by cutting down on extraneous noise, boosting light levels and increasing the quality of still images.
