Logitech Works with Intel to Create ConferenceCam Kits

Posted by at 11:08 am on March 7, 2016

Not too long ago, Logitech announced the Logitech Group, its latest ConferenceCam solution. It seems that Logitech’s goal with the Group and other ConferenceCams is to make video conferencing cheaper and more easily accessible, and its next step is by offering a complete ConferenceCam kit.

Traditionally, video conferencing may be as simple as facing a laptop toward the conference participants or as elaborate as setting up a solution from Cisco or Polycom. Unfortunately, high-end solutions can easily cost thousands of dollars, whereas the low end of the spectrum doesn’t offer the robust features a dedicated solution would. Logitech seeks to offer more price-conscious video conferencing solutions that offer high-quality video and audio without being tied down by proprietary software.

Logitech’s Group ConferenceCam Kit

Logitech’s ConferenceCam Kits are a collaborative initiative between Logitech and Intel to provide video conferencing-ready systems. Most ConferenceCam setups involve users building their own system by connecting a ConferenceCam to a dedicated computer with conferencing software installed. But setting up such a solution oneself isn’t necessarily a straightforward task. Logitech’s ConferenceCam kits include an Intel NUC preloaded with conferencing software, eliminating the hassle of installing the right software yourself. Additionally, the ConferenceCam kits are intended to work with virtually all video conferencing software, so IT departments may tailor the kits to their companies’ needs.

The kits have a couple of configurations: One kit includes the Logitech Connect, and the other kit includes the Logitech Group. The included Intel NUC is a 5I5MYHE, which contains a Broadwell-based Core i5-5300U processor, 8 GB of DDR3 memory, an Intel AC-7265 wireless card and a 128 GB SSD. Illuminari Quicklaunch SE is installed on the NUC, providing users a simple-to-use GUI. Both kits also include Logitech’s K400 Plus wireless keyboard and Windows 10 Pro.

Logitech’s ConferenceCam kits will be available in April starting at $1,500. Logitech will be showing its ConferenceKam kits during Enterprise Connect this week.
