Logitech Announces New Video Conference Solution for Mid to Large Conference Rooms
Recently, Logitech launched Logitech GROUP, a crystal-clear audio and high-quality HD video conferencing solution for groups of 14, or up to 20 participants with the optional expansion microphones.
Logitech GROUP works with the same room system configuration for whichever unified communications, web conferencing, or video conferencing application already in use in an organization. The solution is easy and fast to deploy, allowing any meeting space to be a flexible multi-use video collaboration space.
“Until now, people looking to collaborate over video were faced with a choice between installing high priced purpose-built systems or crowding around a laptop that’s placed at the end of a table. This resulted in a poor experience with coworkers packed together like sardines or falling out of the frame. Logitech GROUP provides the best of both worlds, an affordable solution optimized for large rooms with a wide field of view and crystal clear audio quality. Plus, it works with virtually any UC or video collaboration software and is so easy to use that you don’t need IT support to help get your meeting started,” said K.P. Sim, Logitech Country Manager for Malaysia, Brunei, and the Philippines.
Logitech GROUP is the successor to Logitech’s popular ConferenceCam CC3000e. It has a full-duplex speakerphone in a metal case, and four omni-directional microphones that are shielded from the speaker. Conference participants can converse within a 20-foot diameter around the base, or extend the range to 28-feet with optional expansion microphones. It can also be used with a Bluetooth-enabled mobile device for audio calls.
The 1080p video quality brings Full HD video to conference calls, while the camera’s wide 90-degree field of view and smooth pan and tilt controls makes it easy to see everyone in the room. Onboard H.264 with scalable video coding frees up bandwidth, and the 10x lossless HD zoom allows participants to zero in on close-ups of objects.
