IT solution provider and manufacturer Logitech showcased its new artificial intelligence-powered tabletop camera – Logitech Sight – at UC EXPO 2022, which was held this week.
The camera integrates with Logitech’s front-of-room camera Rally Bar or Rally Bar Mini to intelligently capture the best perspective of meeting participants and track conversations as they move around the room. According to Logitech, it helps to solve the disparity between hybrid and in-office teams by giving remote workers better and more useful experiences.
“We’re no longer all at home in equal-sized video boxes like we were during the height of the pandemic,” said Scott Wharton, general manager of Logitech Video Collaboration. “In a hybrid work world, a mix of in-office and remote workers increases the challenge of delivering equitable experiences to everyone.
“Logitech Sight, when used with Rally Bar or Rally Bar Mini, uses AI to tackle this problem with a model that is less Silicon Valley and more Hollywood – the art of using multiple camera angles and intelligent direction to bring remote participants off the sidelines and into the room. Our customers have told us that this is one of the biggest hybrid work problems to solve to make ‘return to the office’ work better for teams. We believe, based on years of research and early customer feedback, that we’ve cracked the code on this must-win critical problem for organisations of all sizes.”
With dual 4K cameras and seven beamforming microphones, Sight is able to better capture conversations and non-verbal interactions as they naturally happen, enhancing employee participation and engagement.
Logitech Sight also integrates with leading video conferencing platforms such as Microsoft Teams, enabling businesses to meet the evolving needs of their hybrid workforces.
