Logitech just announced a USB-based conference camera called the Logitech MeetUp. Designed specifically for small conference rooms and huddle rooms, MeetUp’s 120-degree field of view makes every seat at the table clearly visible during a meeting. With acoustics custom-tuned for huddle rooms and a compact all-in-one design, MeetUp is USB and connected to any USB-conferencing hub or computer.
Logitech MeetUp is designed to work with virtually any video conferencing software application and cloud service, including Skype for Business, Cisco collaboration applications and all Logitech Collaboration Program partners such as BlueJeans, BroadSoft, Vidyo and Zoom.
MeetUp captures a very-wide 120-degree field of view with the option to pan an additional 25 degrees to the left and right. A new low-distortion lens, UltraHD 4K optics, and three camera presets make it a perfect option for a quick, high-quality camera in a small meeting room or Huddle space. MeetUp has integrated audio optimized for huddle room spaces in that three sound-isolating mics and a voice-optimized speaker help ensure everyone is heard as clearly as they are seen. MeetUp is Microsoft Cortana certified for voice commands with any Windows 10 system. For larger rooms, where meeting participants are more than eight feet from the microphone, customers may also purchase the Logitech Expansion Mic for MeetUp.
Logitech also introduced its ConferenceCam Soft Remote, an app that easily turns a smartphone or tablet into a remote control for Logitech MeetUp. ConferenceCam Soft Remote features all the controls available on the Logitech remote. It is compatible with both Android and iOS devices and will be available in July for free from the Google Play or Apple App stores.
Gary Kayye got the detailed scoop on the MeetUp camera this week via a rAVe RADIO pre-InfoComm Videocast, which you can watch here. Logitech will demo this in its booth (#2681) next week.
Logitech MeetUp will be available in July 2017 and will list for $899 in the U.S, €1,099 in Europe and £999 in the U.K. Here are all the detailed specs.
