Orange Micro is first to market with the iBOT, a FireWire-based desktop video camera.
iBOT harnesses the speed and power of FireWire unmatched by the slower USB-based web cams. In fact, the inexpensive iBOT uses the same IEEE 1394 technology built into pricey DV camcorders costing over 7 times as much. Orange Micro's iBOT is the desktop video camera for the rest of us, providing crisp, clear video at a price you can afford.
