Looking for ideal Christmas gift? The worldwide leader in digital entertainment products, Creative has launched its new slim and compact digital HD camcorder that tiny enough to fit easily in a pocket – Creative Vado HD Pocket Video Cam, which captures video in 720p high-definition quality, claiming as the only pocket video camera to feature high quality HDMI connectivity and included HDMI cable that provides 1080i output to HDTV.

“We designed the Vado HD so you can easily shoot all of life’s spontaneous and fun moments, and then come home and watch your videos on an HDTV – all with true high-definition quality,” said Steve Erickson, VP and GM for audio and video at Creative. “You can upload the videos to your PC, or what’s really cool is to watch them on your HDTV in full HD quality. Some cameras such as the Flip Mino HD record HD video but don’t let you output it in high definition to your HDTV. Even the New York Times laments, ‘the Mino HD is a hi-def camcorder that can’t play your movies in high def on a high-def TV.’ The Vado HD delivers 1080i high-definition video to an HDTV, plus it offers the convenience of an HDMI connection.”
