Logitech just unveiled a new product category for unified communications (UC) and Web conferencing – all-in-one audio and video ConferenceCam. Logitech BCC950 ConferenceCam is the first communications tool to combine full HD webcam with full-duplex speakerphone in one USB device. This engineering enables small groups to collaborate in conference rooms, closed offices, or shared work spaces.

“We have a number of remote workers who value face-to-face time with their colleagues in the office, but we haven’t had an appropriate tool for small-group video meetings,” said Jim Hayes, IT operations manager for 24HourFlex, an employee benefits solutions provider in Aurora, Colo. “We’ve been testing pre-production units of the Logitech BCC950 ConferenceCam for more than a month and it’s proved to be an ideal solution for this bottleneck. We can now quickly and easily add audio and video conferencing to any room with an affordable device that doesn’t compromise on call quality.”

Logitech BCC950 ConferenceCam features full HD webcam with motorised pan, tilt, and zoom for bringing everyone into the frame. Control pad or convenient remote can also used to answer calls, end calls, adjust volume, and mute microphone. With wide 78-degree field of view and 180-degree video pan, support for 1080p HD (30fps) through plug-and-play UVC H.264 video technology, and high-quality speakerphone, ConferenceCam ensures superb UC calls.

“The workplace is rapidly evolving toward smaller and more virtual teams, yet communication tools have not kept pace,” said Eric Kintz, vice president and general manager of Logitech for Business. “In looking at the needs of our customers, we saw a gap in solutions that bring audio and videoconferencing to small groups. The Logitech BCC950 ConferenceCam fills that gap by combining a webcam and speakerphone into a single affordable device – transforming PCs and Macs into communications platforms, so businesses can set up more locations for small-group meetings.”

Weighing only 568g, this Logitech webcam is easy to carry around an office. Whether in conference rooms or individual offices, Logitech BCC950 is ideal for meetings of one to four or more people. Featuring high-quality webcam sensor and Logitech RightLight 2 technology improve visual quality in low light situations, while Carl Zeiss lens and camera’s autofocus allow sharing of detailed documents and visual content without losing image quality.

Logitech BCC950 ConferenceCam is expected to be available in beginning in May for $249.99. Stay connected to TechPl.us for more tech reviews. Don’t forget to share your views in the comment box below.
