We’re excited to announce two new Logitech Video Collaboration offerings. The first adds intelligent automation to video meetings, and the second is a new video conferencing portfolio that that raises the bar for USB-connected conference cams.
Most meeting rooms weren’t designed for video conferencing. Overhead lighting, walls of windows, and lots of hard surfaces make problems like shadows, glare, echo all but inevitable. And with most cameras installed on the narrow wall of the room, remote participants typically see a lot more of the table than they do of their colleagues.
Sure, we can ask facilities managers to change window treatments and add acoustic panels. We can even hope that someone in the room will find the remote and manually adjust the camera. But wouldn’t it be better if the camera, mics, and speakers adapted to the room instead?
Today, we announced Logitech RightSense™, a suite of technologies in Logitech devices that make better meetings easy and automatic.
- Logitech RightSight™ camera control finds people within the camera’s field of view, automatically framing meeting participants in the room so that users don’t need to manually adjust the camera angle, addressing the common situation mentioned in the beginning of this post. Because of this, participants can feel more natural in meetings, better able to comfortably interact and make eye contact.
- Logitech RightLight™ optimizes light balance and color to prioritize the appearance of faces over objects and surfaces, rendering natural-looking skin tones, even in dim or backlit conditions.
- Logitech RightSound™ improves vocal clarity by suppressing background noise and echo, auto-leveling voices, and focusing on active speakers so that everyone in the meeting can hear and be heard.
Logitech RightLight and Logitech RightSound technologies are currently included free of charge in a number of Logitech ConferenceCams and webcams. Logitech RightSight will be available later this year through a software download.
We also introduced Logitech® Rally, a premium, modular system for everyday conference rooms, boardrooms, and large meeting spaces. Logitech Rally delivers studio-quality video, exceptional audio clarity and an automated video conferencing experience that can be tailored to your meeting space, no matter the size. Logitech Rally features Ultra-HD 4K video, modular audio components, expansive PTZ capabilities, and the most advanced implementation of Logitech RightSense™ technologies. Logitech Rally truly sets a new standard for USB-connected video cameras.
