Webcams have typically been known for their blurry badly lit pictures. At X10 we decided that wasn't good enough when we thought of communicating with loved ones. Thats why our camera comes with a professional grade image sensor.

The most common type of image sensor is a charge-coupled device (CCD). A CCD helps turn what the X10 Camera sees into a digital image by taking the original light and breaking it down into a series of pixels. Like any camera, it uses a series of lenses that focus light in order to create an image of a scene, recording the light electronically and then converting it into digital data which then forms the image.

CCD sensors consistently produce high-quality, low-noise images. The technology involved has proven itself to be stable and reliable, and remains the standard in the field of digital video recording.
