A webcam is a camera, often low-resolution, that is linked to your computer. It can be built in, or added as an attachment. Realtime images from the camera can then be transmitted to other users via a broadband connection.

Webcams are often used for video instant messaging, and for security purposes (a webcam can be left running in an empty property and the pictures transmitted to the work pc of the home owner, for example).
