Logitech takes the hassle out of building video conference rooms

0

TA03347KUCHING: Logitech has introduced the new Logitech ConferenceCam Kit with Intel NUC video conferencing system.

Configured and validated by Logitech and Intel for performance, simplicity and compatibility, the ConferenceCam Kit includes a Logitech ConferenceCam, Intel NUC and Intel Unite application.

The ConferenceCam Kit is compatible with virtually all PC-based cloud services, and does not require users to bring their own computer to start a video call.

This enterprise-quality bundle also mitigates the complexity and cost for businesses to scale up from a laptop-based experience, or scale beyond a boardroom telepresence system to a flexible and affordable solution for any meeting room.

“We have found that a significant number of Logitech ConferenceCams are attached to dedicated computers in meeting rooms, but purchasing, configuring and deploying a dedicated video conference system in meeting spaces can be expensive, and it’s hard for our customers to know what is compatible,” said Scott Wharton, general manager of the Logitech video collaboration group, in a press statement.

“Logitech and Intel have taken the guesswork out of the equation. We researched, developed and tested the Logitech ConferenceCam Kit so it’s easy to set up, easy to use and delivers the most affordable enterprise-quality video conferencing experience available today.

“We are delighted to be working with Logitech to help solve the challenges that businesses face when they install video conferencing systems in meeting spaces,” said Tom Garrison, vice president and general manager of the Intel Business Client Division.

“Fully integrating the Intel NUC and Intel Unite application into the Logitech ConferenceCam Kit provides customers with an end-to-end system that is flexible, powerful and reliable, yet simple to deploy, manage and use in any meeting space.”

The Logitech ConferenceCam Kit works natively with virtually any video conferencing software or service and provides everything needed to deploy video in a meeting room equipped with a display and an Internet connection.

It is not a single-purpose solution locked into an infrastructure investment or service provider choice. Instead, with ConferenceCam Kit, you extend the flexibility and low switching costs associated with cloud services all the way into the conference room.

The ConferenceCam Kit is optimised for use with Logitech Collaboration Programme members such as BlueJeans and Zoom, ensuring a superior meeting experience when using these video applications.

Each ConferenceCam Kit includes a market-leading Logitech ConferenceCam for best-in-class video conferencing with HD 1080p video and professional audio, enabling everyone in the meeting room to clearly see expressions, nonverbal cues and movements.
