The new Logitech ConferenceCam Connect brings small and medium-sized meeting rooms for 1-6 people into the twenty-first century.
The portable, mains- or battery-powered video-conferencing unit features 1080p video with a 90-degree field of view, digital pan and tilt, 4x digital Full HD zoom and autofocus. It supports both mobile and USB calling and offers 360-degree full duplex audio with a range of 12 feet.
ConferenceCam Connect works with any computing device that has a USB connection and with virtually any videoconferencing software, including Cisco Jabber, WebEx, Citrix GoToMeeting, Blue Jeans, Google Hangouts, Lifesize, Microsoft Lync and Skype, Vidyo, Zoom etc..
Connectivity options include USB, Bluetooth and near field communication (NFC), enabling Windows and Android users to connect to the unit wirelessly. They can also ‘screen-mirror’ presentations, spreadsheets, videos or Internet content from their mobile device to a TV screen via an HDMI connection.
Bill Haskins, senior analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research, said: “Our research points to a rise in open seating environments, shrinking conference rooms, more telecommuters and the use of a growing number of collaborative applications. The Logitech ConferenceCam Connect meets these challenges head-on by providing an intriguing combination of flexibility and portability.”
The Logitech ConferenceCam Connect has a suggested price of £449.
