Next generation webcams multifunction webcams are very sophisticated, they can do facial recognition, they are used in security systems, and for on line education.  They are used for 3D mapping, commercial pipeline observation, border patrol, package delivery, photography, and agriculture are more energy efficient, last longer and when connected to automated analytics have a significantly lower cost of operation than manned security systems.

Price sensitivity characterizes the OEM market.  Virtually every tablet and smartphone will have a webcam going forward.  WebCams are used in combination with instant messaging programs. YouTube is a premier video site.  Microsoft Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, SameTime, and Skype support video chat.  Broadband connections support streaming video.  Installation, image quality and performance are ways to measure the substance of the WebCam experience. 

Imaging depends on quality and usefulness. Picture quality is an ongoing issue for webcams.  Sample photos from each Web camera need to be tested in a variety of lighting conditions provide a good measure of quality.  The standard high-resolution setting is measured in pixels and is constantly shifting for video. 

Resolution used for video, e-mailing and posting on the Web varies.  A Web camera includes software to help present and adjust the picture.  WebCams can take high quality still pictures, with a lower quality for video.  The resolution that works well for video is lower than that for still pictures that require higher resolution.  Anything higher quality, anything matching the quality of the still pictures in the video would be a huge drain on the processor, and reduce resolution for this reason. 

The frames-per-second (fps) rate determines how quickly a webcam can capture and move video. The fewer frames per second, the choppier the picture.  Full-motion video is generally 60 frames-per-second.   Instant messaging software and servers are improving in this regard. 

WebCam video broadcasts are limited by the speed of Internet connections and instant messaging servers.  Streaming video works best with a high-bandwidth connections.  Transfer rates can be limited by instant messaging servers.  Skype and MSN Messenger is offering smooth video.  Skype’s video chat service is increasing its user base on a daily basis. 

The WebCam market at $3.4 billion in 2014 is expected to grow to $15.2 billion by 2021.  Strong growth is triggered by the increasing availability of broadband and Internet connectivity.  The Internet protocols of Ethernet dominate all networking.
