Logitech's GROUP caters for bigger meeting rooms
Enhanced audio features allow Logitech's new HD video conferencing system to cater for up to 20 people.
Logitech has announced a successor to its well-received ConferenceCam CC3000e, an HD video conferencing endpoint that caters for meeting rooms with up to 10 people. The new Logitech GROUP (which drops the ConferenceCam brand name) offers enhanced audio and will handle meetings of up to 14 people in its standard configuration, or up to 20 with a pair of optional additional external microphones.
The new product fills out a video conferencing portfolio that includes the existing ConferenceCam BCC950 for up to 4 people and the cynlidrical ConferenceCam Connect for up to six people. According to Scott Wharton, general manager of Logitech's video collaboration group, the company is now the number-two vendor of conference-room systems worldwide.
There are now plenty of video-conferencing-as-a-service offerings, including Skype for Business, WebEx, Cisco Jabber and Lifesize (which recently split from Logitech to concentrate on cloud-based video collaboration services as an independent company). Logitech's relatively affordable conference-room systems are designed to connect quickly and easily to PCs and laptops via USB and tap into these services to fill the gap between the compromised webcam-and-a-laptop experience and expensive proprietary telepresence systems.
