Xbox Live Vision

The Live Vision is a webcam designed for the Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Live.


The camera can be used for video chat, personalized gamer pictures, in-game video chat, and still pictures. The camera features 640 × 480 video at 30 fps and is capable of taking still images at 1.3 megapixels. It allows for video chat and picture messages using an Xbox Live Gold Subscription with video effects along with in-game compatibility. Certain games allow a digital zoom of 2x or 4x while video chatting.

It also features three camera effects, in which the currently captured video image is overlaid on the dashboard background. The three effects are 'watery', 'edgy', and 'dotty'. The camera uses a standard USB 2.0 connection and is also Windows (XP and newer) and Mac OS X (v10.4.9 and newer) compatible.

The Xbox Live Vision Camera was announced at E3 2006 and released in North America on September 19 2006, following a 1-month pre-launch period in which Toys "R" Us stores in New York Citymarker and Los Angelesmarker sold them to build up hype. It was released in Europe and Asia on October 6 2006, and November 2 2006 in Japan.

PC compatibility

Retail packaging.
The Vision Camera is compatible with Windows XP Service Pack 2 using USB 2.0 connection. It requires a microphone (Optional) for audio when used on a PC. Drivers are not included with the Vision Camera, but must be downloaded by Windows when prompted. One problem with using the Vision cam on the PC is that it will not allow you to record videos with it only take pictures, unless you download additional supported software.

Mac OS X 10.4.9 added support for the USB "video class" group of peripherals, including Vision Camera. They work in iChat, Photo Booth and other applications that use Quicktime for video display, such as Skype. Connection over USB2 is also mandatory.

The Vision Camera is also compatible with the Sony's PlayStation 3 (requires firmware 1.54).
