Logitech announced the latest products for video conference

According to its press release, Logitech announced that its new products can make our experience in video conference better.

Logitech is raising the bar on the video conferencing industry with a next generation portfolio of appliance and PC-based solutions. They will work with today’s leading video conferencing services such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom. The new Logitech Rally Bar is purpose-built for mid-sized rooms, and Logitech Rally Bar Mini is for small rooms. Thus, they can transform meetings with cinema-quality video and crisp, clear audio in an all-in-one design.

Rounding out large meeting rooms, the new Logitech RoomMate is a computing appliance that allows customers to run video conferencing services on Logitech conference cams like Rally Plus without a PC or Mac. Now, you can dramatically simplify setup, management, and use of video conferencing equipment for radically better meetings in today’s hybrid and rapidly evolving work environments.

Video conference becomes more essential

“We’ve always methodically focused on what customers want, and that’s products with premium quality at a reasonable price,” said Scott Wharton, general manager and vice president, Logitech Video Collaboration. “From ease of use and manageability, to bringing scale to businesses, we want to make products bigger and better, while reducing complexity. Our goal is to put video in every meeting space in the world. In order to do that, we need to make it easy, simple and cost-effective, which is what we believe we’ve achieved with this new portfolio of products.”

As video conferencing continues to become an integral part of every business, Logitech’s latest portfolio sets a new precedent for truly flexible room solutions. You can run supported video conferencing applications natively on Rally Bar and Rally Bar Mini, like Microsoft Teams and Zoom, or connect them via USB to virtually any room PC or Mac. You can even BYOD (bring your own device), which allows you to plug in your laptop and run your chosen video service. Logitech’s new portfolio will also support other popular video conferencing services such as GoTo, Pexip and RingCentral.

2021 is still the year to evolve our ways of working

Before the pandemic, many companies tried to improve the ways of working. For example, Microsoft Japan tested a 3 days weekend experiment to increase employees’ productivity and to empower their life more. Another example is that several companies set their satellite offices around the cities. Thus, workers are able to work there instead of going to their offices.

Most of advanced countries face the similar problems such as aged society and climate change. Therefore, we always try to improve our ways of working, to recreate our work and life balance. What’s more, we try to redefine happiness in our entire life. Whether we want it or not, remote working is one possible solution to spend more time with our family.

After the pandemic, the trend is accelerating and more people across the globe cannot help but work at their home. This is because we must avoid contacting with other people as much as we can. As a result, remote working is one of buzzwords in 2020. In addition, a lot of people experienced it without their intention. While we experienced remote working, the legislation was also going.

Of course, there are rooms to improve and some disadvantages in relation to remote working. However, we are still facing the same problem in the beginning of 2021. Thus, it is better for us to find a hybrid solution. It will enable us to work both at our home and in the office. A room for improvement in remote working is infrastructure in our offices as well as our home. Therefore, Logitech’s new products make sense to improve this aspect. Furthermore, our decision to invest in infrastructure is critical as well.
