Microsoft to get HD webcam from Tandberg

Videoconferencing vendor Tandberg announced today a new development deal that will see the Oslo-based company delivering the first high-definition webcam for integration with the Microsoft unified communications platform.

The plan was revealed during the keynote at VoiceCon 2008 by Microsoft’s corporate vice-president for unified communications, Gurdeep Singh Pall.

The project will extend HD video communications access to the desktop level, according to Tandberg CEO Fredrik Halvorson.

The camera will be delivered in conjunction with the new HD video support feature in the upcoming Microsoft Office Communications Server, and will be available in the first half of 2009.
