Logitech's new ConferenceCam Connect is a portable all-in-one videoconference solution with for small and medium sized rooms.
It works with any computing device with a USB connection (PC, MAC, or Chromebook), with virtually any videoconferencing software (Microsoft Lync™ and Skype, Cisco Jabber and WebEx, Citrix GoToMeeting, Blue Jeans, Google Hangouts, Lifesize, Vidyo, Zoom, etc.), and it can be easily moved from room to room.
The ConferenceCam Connect has also mobile connectivity for screen-mirror projection through Miracast technology. Windows and Android users can connect wirelessly to the ConferenceCam Connect to screen-mirror presentations, spreadsheets, videos or Internet content from a mobile device to a TV screen through an HDMI connection.
The ConferenceCam Connect offers 1080p resolution and the ability to see objects and everyone in the room via a 90-degree field of view with digital pan and tilt, mechanical tilt control, 4x digital Full HD zoom, and ZEISS optics with autofocus. The speakerphone supports both mobile and USB audio calling with features such as Bluetooth wireless technology, near field communication and a USB port. With 360-degree sound, users can hear and be heard within a 12-foot diameter range while full duplex sound, acoustic echo and noise-cancelling technology delivers realism.
The ConferenceCam Connect runs on AC power or battery. On a full charge, users can run a videoconference for up to 3 hours or use the speakerphone for up to 15 hours, and its LED indicator shows the battery charge status during use.
