A Camera That’s Actually Designed for Huddle Rooms

Uncategorized | Posted on August 14, 2018 by schap

Today,  we announced Logitech MeetUp, our premier conference cam designed specifically for small conference rooms and huddle rooms. What makes MeetUp stand out from all the other video conferencing solutions in the market today is that it was purpose-built from the ground up with small meeting rooms and huddle spaces in mind.

As businesses move to open floorplans, huddle rooms are becoming increasingly common. So much so that research firms GartnerNemertes, and Wainhouse are writing dedicated reports about these modern collaboration spaces. Clearly, there’s a market opportunity there. We’ve watched a number of our competitors go after this space with stripped-down versions of their existing room systems.

But cheaper versions of traditional video equipment don’t address the challenges of enabling video in the huddle room, where space is at a premium and people are often sitting in close proximity to the camera. In many ways, huddle rooms require performance that’s better than their larger cousins (especially to capture everyone in a room). So we decided to build a product that gives our customers an optimal audio and video experience in these smaller meeting rooms, which are often wider and shallower than traditional meeting rooms.

MeetUp captures a super-wide 120-degree field of view with the ability to pan an additional 25 degrees to the left and right. A Logitech-engineered, low-distortion lens, UltraHD 4K optics, and three camera presets deliver a premium video experience. MeetUp also has integrated audio, with three sound-isolating mics and a voice-optimized speaker to help ensure everyone is heard as clearly as they are seen. Custom-tuned for huddle room spaces, MeetUp delivers an exceptional sound experience.

MeetUp is an all-in-one device, saving precious real estate on small room tables and providing an antidote to cable clutter. And like other Logitech products, it’s simple to set up and use, and works with all of the major video conferencing providers, and is designed to work right out of the box.

You can read all about MeetUp plus our newly announced Expansion Mic for MeetUp and our ConferenceCam Soft Remote in today’s press release.
