The Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass is a low-cost webcam. This is based on the Hercules Classic Silver, now with a glass lens for better focus and light gathering and 4 LEDs that provide variable lighting. This is similar to the Hercules Deluxe Webcam as well, but comes with a headset in addition to the integrated microphone and creates video at a slightly lower resolution. The clamp can attach the camera to a flat panel monitor or laptop, or it can act as a stand on a desk or CRT screen. The included software can perform 3x digital zoom, and can use this zooming to do automatic face-tracking within its field of view. Video output can be as high as 800x600 resolution in interpolation mode.
