Logitech released it last webcam in 2012. When was the last time you bought a webcam? Today it’s introducing the new C922 Pro Stream Webcam, which records in HD 1080p or 720p at 60fps video. It even comes with a tripod! Maybe you are like me and are wondering, why would someone want a webcam in 2016? This is a good question. Logitech thinks it’s because you like Twitch. Its most recent webcam, the C920, shot in HD, too, so what really makes the C922 unique is its background replacement feature. It recognizes shapes to separate players from their background, so gamers can then overlay video of themselves streaming with other broadcasting apps, like XSplit.

Every webcam purchase comes with a three-month XSplit Premium license, which includes access to the tools and features of XSplit Broadcaster and XSplit Gamecaster. Webcams! Still applicable to 2016!
