Logitech Intros MeetUp 2 — AI-Powered USB Conference Camera

logitech meetup 2

Logitech announced the MeetUp 2, an AI-powered USB conference camera designed for BYOD and PC-based setups in huddle and small meeting rooms. With the rise in huddle rooms comes the need for video conferencing tech that fits multiple scenarios, including those who prefer dedicated PC-based deployment or using their laptop in a BYOD setup. And because Logitech has been using AI-enhanced features in conference room devices for years to create experiences that focus on the human and deepen engagement among meeting colleagues (with no manual control needed), MeetUp 2 is now designed with those intelligent features.

Here’s a video of the MeetUp 2 we shot at InfoComm 2024: 

 

 

Logitech says that AI-driven video features of RightSight 2 create equitable experiences for remote participants by using intelligence to automatically focus and frame in-room participants – whether focusing on the active speaker, the group of participants, or each individual participant. For advanced audio clarity, RightSound 2 uses AI-based algorithms that balance voices and filter out unwanted noise, while reducing reverberation in rooms with echoes. MeetUp 2 works with popular video conferencing platforms people use every day such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Google Meet, enabling MeetUp 2 users to enjoy features like Zoom Rooms Smart Gallery, which creates individual feeds of in-room participants; and Microsoft Intelliframe, which automatically places participants in frames to make everyone equally visible.

Buyers of IT equipment are increasingly responsible for purchasing technology with a lower environmental impact. MeetUp 2 was developed using Design for Sustainability (DfS) principles, a framework that guides product teams toward lower-impact, more circular design solutions.

MeetUp 2 replaces virgin plastic parts with post-consumer recycled plastic, lowering its carbon footprint and giving a second life to end-of-use plastic from old consumer electronics. The plastic parts in MeetUp 2 contain 62% recycled plastic, the highest percentage of similar products in the market today. By choosing recycled plastic vs virgin plastic, MeetUp 2’s design saves 15.5 tCO2e saving per 10,000 units*, allowing IT tech buyers to lower their company’s Scope 3 indirect emissions.

To encourage other brands to adopt DfS, Logitech openly shares its knowledge about how to integrate Next Life recycled plastic into their manufacturing process. MeetUp 2 is also packaged in paper sourced from FSC-certified forests and other controlled sources.

MeetUp 2, designed for up to six people in a small room, offers the flexibility of deploying in USB mode with an in-room computer device or in BYOD mode connected to a laptop.

In BYOD setups, users simply connect their laptops or mobile devices to the MeetUp 2 with the optional Logitech Active USB Cable to run video meetings from their platform of choice, while IT admins can monitor room status, deploy updates, and modify settings over ethernet or WiFi through Logitech Sync. When MeetUp 2 is not in a meeting, the display in the room can be used for digital signage, allowing custom content such as company logos or space usage instructions, through Logitech Sync and AppSpace.

MeetUp 2 is $899/€999/£849 and available globally now.
