Logitech introduced Logitech Tap, a touch control display that makes collaboration rooms easy to deploy and use.
Tap is part of pre-configured room solutions for major collaboration platform providers such as Google Hangouts Meet Hardware, Microsoft Teams Rooms (formerly Skype Room Systems), and Zoom Rooms. Like other Logitech conferencing equipment, Tap is built on open standards, enabling a broader set of integrations, for example with interactive whiteboards, room control functions, and more.
The tech challenges in meeting rooms, for example starting video calls and managing the remote control, have continued to plague workers despite advancements in conferencing technologies. With the addition of Tap, Logitech Room Solutions simplify the deployment and use of video conferencing in any meeting room. Coupled with software from collaboration service providers, it’s easier than before to deliver functions like one-touch start, calendaring, and seamless content sharing.
Tap couples the purpose-built utility of a meeting room touch control panel with the affordability of a tablet. It delivers one-touch video calling simplicity for users in an IT-friendly design. Logitech Room Solutions with Tap include all necessary components in one package: the Logitech Tap touch controller, a small form factor computer with room-optimized video conferencing software from Google, Microsoft or Zoom, and a Logitech conferencecam.
Tap is featuing a 10.1-inch touchscreen, HDMI input for content sharing, and robust cable retention. A range of table, riser and wall mounts offer placement flexibility, while in-wall rated cabling enables topologies and room layouts that please the eye as well as IT.
These solution packages are planned to be available globally in Spring 2019. The packages are expected to be priced around $3000 for small rooms, $4000 for medium rooms, and $5000 for large rooms. Standalone units are available at a suggested price of $999 in the U.S.
