Web chats gain video and audio synchronisation

Microsoft portal MSN has joined with Logitech to launch a video and audio communications system within the forthcoming MSN Messenger 7.0 instant messaging service.

The new service, unveiled at the CeBIT trade show in Germany, takes advantage of the basic webcam facility in MSN Messenger.

The latest development, designed for use over a broadband connection, will deliver a higher-quality, more advanced service that will enable synchronised audio and video conversations with a click of the mouse, said the two companies.

Current users of the webcam facility are experiencing poorer synchronisation between audio and video during web chats.

The enhanced service, with new tools, will be available later this spring, when MSN Messenger 7.0 is launched, said Microsoft.
