Logitech’s Most Advanced Webcam…Yet.

Logitech’s Most Advanced Webcam…Yet.

For more than 20 years Logitech has been creating web cameras, and each new camera that’s released in the market is designed to meet the needs of diverse customers. From consumer webcams to business conference cameras, with each camera Logitech builds, they strive to give users the experience of sitting in the same room, regardless of distance.

Logitech BRIO is the world’s first ultra high-definition webcam featuring Logitech RightLight™ 3 with HDR. BRIO takes webcams to a whole new level – not just for video conferencing, but for anyone who takes their video seriously – whether it’s for streaming, vlogging or video conferencing. More than that, Logitech’s goal was to create a webcam that would have someone say “Oohh! I want to have one!”

Besides it’s slick glass and metal body design, what separates BRIO from all the other webcams in the market are its support for Logitech RightLight™ 3 with HDR and its support for 4K UHD video capture – both industry firsts for a webcam. As applications for high quality video proliferate, from video conferencing, to streaming to recording, Logitech is there to provide the highest quality video experience available. And their timing couldn’t be better. More and more applications are supporting both 4K and HDR. For example in November, YouTube announced support for 4K live streaming, and at CES, they announced support for HDR as well.

Why do RightLight™ 3 with HDR and 4K matter? First, let’s take a look at RightLight™ 3 with HDR. Anyone who’s ever been on a video call or recorded a video knows that lighting matters. Too much light or too little light make for a very poor video experience. Logitech pioneered RightLight in 2006 to deliver a better video experience in low light conditions. Now in its third generation, RightLight™ 3 extends the range in lighting conditions from a dimly lit room on a dark and stormy day to a sunny, very well lit room. HDR (high dynamic range) imaging, has been used in photography for a number of years but is new to video, which is a technological feature considering the number of frames being captured per second with video. HDR balances lighting in the scene for improved image quality in scenarios where both low-light and overexposure of lighting occur. With Logitech BRIO, you can kiss badlighting issues goodbye.

4K resolution is enabling new applications for streamed and recorded video. While standard high-def has been used in the video industry for a number of years, 4K takes remote QA,
telemedicine, and many more applications to a new level. 4K allows you to see more than twice the resolution of traditional video. Companies like YouTube and Netflix have supported 4K for
some time, but it’s only recently that 4K monitors are becoming mainstream.

In addition to support for 4K resolution, BRIO’s high end optics, 4K sensor and high-speed processor allow the camera to also deliver 5x zoom in 1080p, plus a range of frame rates including 1080p at 60fps. And BRIO features support for infrared-based facial recognition, making it ideal for speedy and reliable system login with applications like Windows Hello.

Today Logitech continues to make cameras and will continue to release innovative products to market.
