Sega Internet Digital Video Camera Dreameye
Sega Enterprises in June will introduce the world's first digital, color video camera for the Sega Dreamcast. Dubbed "Dreameye," the digital, color video camera uses a 1/3-inch, 310,000-pixel, CMOS image sensor. The lens is fixed focus (50cm to infinity) with an F2.0 aperture and a 48-degree wide angle. Powered by two AAA alkaline batteries when disconnected from the Dreamcast, Dreameye has built-in flash memory that can store 31 still JPEG images of 640x480 resolution. Pictures taken by the camera can be edited and sent by e-mail (video mail, photo mail) through the Dreamcast's Internet capability. Dreameye also works as a video phone (TV phone) via the Internet or regular telephone lines, connecting people who have the same system. Sega plans to open a special Web site for Dreameye users to expand the video communication service.
