Sony reveals “Eye” camera for PS3
Replacing the Eye Toy, the new Playstation Eye is capable of 120 frames per second at 320 x 240 or 60 frames per second at 640 x 480. On the audio side of things, the PlayStation Eye features four channels each capable of 16 bit, enhanced echo canceling and background noise suppression.
Bundled with the Playstation Eye is the new EyeCreate editing software, which allows users to save photos, video and audio clips to their PS3 hard disk drive.
David Reeves, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe adds, “PlayStation Eye is a great example of how we have moved forward so significantly with our technology. PlayStation Eye has four times the resolution, twice the framerate and double the sensitivity of its predecessor EyeToy USB Camera. With the technology that we now have at our disposal we will be able to dramatically improve the communications experience enjoyed on PS3.”
