It is only in recent years that web cams have become a mainstay of the modern porn industry.

Web cam use today

Web cams are video cameras that feed or ‘stream’ the images that they capture through to a computer on to the internet or any other computer network. The captured video stream may be saved, viewed in real time or sent on to other networks. The videos created can be sent via an email as an attachment. When they are sent to a remote location, the video stream may be saved or viewed.

Providing real time video links

In the modern world their most popular use is to provide real time video links, permitting computers to act as videophones or video conference stations, potentially from one corner of the globe to another. Other popular uses include remote security surveillance, video broadcasting, and recording social videos which can be shared between people.

Webcams have a low manufacturing cost and are very flexible in use allowing them to provide economic video telephony. In recent years they have become a source of both security and privacy issues, with some built-in webcams being remotely activated via spyware. Malicious use is therefore of some concern.

The adult web cam in today’s world

Nowadays, girls (or guys) can reveal all to consumers on the internet via an adult web cam. They are easy to setup and easy to operate and maintain. The technology that underpins today’s web cams is simple and, importantly, cost little. This means that access to adult web cam content is easy for anyone that wants to provide or consume it.

The history of web cams

A webcam was first pointed at the Trojan Room coffee pot in Cambridge Universities Computer Science Department in 1991. This early, pioneering web cam was not switched off until August 22, 2001 and the last image captured by the camera can still be viewed on the internet. This was where it all began. The oldest webcam that is still operating today is the FogCam at San Francisco State University;this has been running continuously since 1994.

The first Commercial Web cam

The first commercial webcam was the black-and-white ‘QuickCam’ which entered the marketplace in 1994. Connectix, which created QuickCam, saw its product line sold on to Logitech in 1998. QuickCam was first available in August 1994 for the Apple Mac, and simply connected via a serial port. The designer of the device, one Jon Garber,wanted to call it the “Mac-camera”, but was firmly overruled by Connectix’s marketing department.

A version of this web cam with a PC-compatible serial port, and software for Microsoft Windows, was launched onto the market in October 1995. The original QuickCam could only provide a 320×240-pixel resolution with a grayscale depth of 16 shades at 60 frames per second, or 256 shades at 15 frames per second.These early web cams were also tested on several Delta II rocket launches using a wide variety of communication protocols including CDMA, TDMA, GSM and HF.

Nowadays Web cams mean anyone can join in

Thanks to these technological developments, people from all walks of life can now experience an adult web cam. These devices are another example of technology setting people free to do what they want to do. The experience can be fully interactive if you desire it to be so or can be more voyeuristic, whatever takes your fancy!
