The device is fairly easy to install. Philips says to simply install the provided software, plug the PC camera into a USB slot and wait. As soon as the computer recognises the device, it will be ready for use.


The iCatch PC camera comes with a swivel mounting clamp that allows users to clip the webcam to the top of a PC monitor. The camera features a manual focus ring in front of the lens that can be twisted to improve the camera's focus. The webcam is compatible with messaging services such as Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger and Microsoft NetMeeting.


In addition to taking still images, the iCatch PC camera is capable of video conferencing and recording with audio, provided you have a microphone. The included software also allows you to take snapshots of your computer display.
