To close the gap between these items, Logitech launches new video conferencing solution. The £449 ConferenceCam Connect, is showcased as a versatile all-in-one alternative with a cutting edge outline for little and medium-sized conference rooms.
There’s a clear pattern towards somewhat slim cylinders in tech: first Amazon’s Echo and now Logitech has put the shape to use as a convenient Full HD video conferencing device.
The Logitech ConferenceCam Connect resembles an extravagant sippy-container for travelers to pour their espresso in, but it’s really a 1080p cam with ZEISS optics and inbuilt wireless, equipped for transforming a cell phone or tablet into an ad-hoc display, and connecting wandering employees to their organization’s video conferences.
Since most telephones or tablets nowadays have integrated cameras, Logitech had to bring in something more when it comes to features. For example, alongside the ZEISS optics, there’s self-adjust and a lens with a 90-degree perspective. That can be attuned, as well: the webcam has automatic tilt control – physically moving the lens’ angle. There’s additionally a 4x Full HD zoom, which implies users can get a close up without affecting resolution as would typically be the case.
As far as the sound is concerned, there’s a full-double speakerphone which can block echo and noise by means of omni-directional receivers. This enables 360-degree sound catch inside a 12 foot distance across.
WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, and a HDMI port for attaching an outer display are all ensuring good connectivity. Additionally, users can remotely link an Android or iOS telephone or tablet, and afterward use it as the preview screen and for screen-sharing presentations, features, and online content with different conference joiners.
An external microphone can be plugged in an USB, while an inside battery works for up to three hours video chat or up to fifteen hours of speakerphone. Additionally, a remote control docks into the back of the gadget and can be used for managing functionality from over the room.
Obviously, the device is not likely to attract general mass consumers which will still go for Cisco Jabber, WebEx, and Skype support.
