What is Webcam Central?

Software company Creative Technology has created a webcam program for Dell computers, called the Webcam Central, and infused it with a lot of modern utilities and amenities one can expect from other downloadable third-party webcam applications. It is, however, mostly for utility only and not as customizable and as full-featured as, for example, Cyberlink’s YouCam, but the thing about the Webcam Central is that while it is a webcam-enhancement application for Dell, it also contains the software driver for the webcam to work correctly. The Webcam Central application comes preloaded in specific Dell notebooks and may not work in other Dell computers, much less on other machines designed by other manufacturers.

The Dell Webcam Central has two modes: the Snap Photos mode, and the Record Video mode. The Snap Photos mode is self-explanatory, as it can act like a digital camera and take a still image, with such options as resolution, file size, output file format (like .jpg), and hardware-specific ones like Burst Rate and Self-Timer. The other mode, Record Video, allows the webcam to capture videos, with such options as video size and video resolution, Self-Timer, and several microphone settings for audio capture as well.
