Sakar International, Edison, N.J. has introduced a new line of KODAK webcams featuring one-stop, plug-and-play connectivity to the most popular instant message, Voice over IP and social media services as well as built-in photo/video management capabilities.

Scheduled for fall release, the new KODAK webcam series consists of five SKUs with MSRPs of $29.99 to $99.99, including the first driver-free webcam under $30 (S100); an auto focus webcam at $59.99 (T130); and the first webcam with a high-definition true 3 megapixel sensor (P310HD). The line also includes a twin-pack of the entry-level model (W100) - one to keep and one to give - and a native 2 megapixel auto focus webcam (L200).

All SKUs are PC and Mac system compatible - an industry first that simplifies both consumer selection and retailer stocking - and provide an easy and user-friendly video calling experience.

Auto-Connect to IM & VoiP Services

With the new KODAK webcams, there is no need to scour your computer to find and launch YAHOO!, AOL, MSN Instant Messenger or SKYPE services to set up a video call or video IM session. Simply open the webcam software from the icon on your desktop, choose the "Connect" tab, hit the button for the service you want, and the pre-installed application will pop up and launch automatically. No additional software or drivers are needed.

Drag-and-Drop Images to Social Media

Instead of saving videos and pictures to your computer's "My Pictures" folder, the webcam software temporarily stores your images in its own built-in video/photo manager for easy access. Then, from the Manager screen, you can upload any video or photo to the appropriate album on your PC or to top social media sites such as KODAK Gallery, Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, YouTube and PHOTOBUCKET simply by dragging-and-dropping to the appropriate button. You can also drag-and-drop images from one service to another quickly and easily.

Sakar's new KODAK webcams are compatible with WINDOWS XP/VISTA/7 as well as MAC OSX 10.5 and above.
