Logitech Video Conference Webcam Mark Peters : April 4th 2012 - 19:00 CET
Logitech Audio and Video Conference Webcam : Logitech introduced a new product category for unified communications; the all-in-one audio and video ConferenceCam. The Logitech BCC950 Conference Webcam is the first communications tool to combine a full HD webcam with a high-quality, omni-directional full-duplex speakerphone in one USB device, enabling small groups to collaborate in conference rooms, closed offices or shared work spaces. The Logitech Video Conference Webcam features a full HD webcam with motorized pan, tilt and zoom for easily bringing everyone into the picture - either from a control pad on the web camera or with a convenient remote control. The control pad or the remote can also used to answer calls, end calls, adjust the volume and mute the microphone.

Optimized for Microsoft Lync and Skype Certified, the Logitech BCC950 ConferenceCam works with most unified communications and video platforms. With a wide 78-degree field of view and 180-degree video pan, support for 1080p, 30fps HD through plug-and-play UVC H.264 video technology, and a speakerphone that allows everyone in a meeting to hear and be heard clearly from up to eight feet away, the Logitech Video Conference Webcam helps remove the pain point of groups clustering around a computer to be seen and understood during UC calls. Weighing only 20 ounces, the Logitech Conference Webcam can be carried easily around an office, allowing for spontaneous meetings anywhere users can place a computer.
Logitech BCC950 ConferenceCam test
“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 24 Hour Flex, an employee benefits solutions provider in Aurora, Colo. “We’ve been testing the Logitech BCC950 Conference Cam 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 web camera that doesn’t compromise on call quality.”

The new Logitech BCC950 Conference Camera is ideal for meetings of one to four or more people, whether in conference rooms or individual offices. A high-quality webcam sensor and Logitech RightLight 2 technology improve visual quality in low light and backlit situations, while a razor-sharp Carl Zeiss lens and the camera’s autofocus feature allow sharing of detailed documents and other visuals up close, without losing image quality.
