Logitech Announces Intelligent Automation for Video Collaboration

June 6, 2018

LAS VEGAS & NEWARK, Calif. & LAUSANNE, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 6, 2018--INFOCOMM 2018 —Today, Logitech (SIX: LOGN)(NASDAQ: LOGI) announced an intelligent software suite for its video collaboration portfolio, Logitech RightSense™ technologies. Together these technologies automate light, color, sound, and camera control to deliver a more natural and engaging video conferencing experience for more effective collaboration. These new technologies are integrated into Logitech’s most advanced video collaboration devices, including Logitech® Rally, enabling more natural meetings with most software-based video conferencing services.

Logitech RightSense consists of three automation technologies:

Logitech RightSight™ camera control leverages computer vision to automatically frame meeting participants in the room so that users don’t need to manually adjust the camera angle. Logitech RightLight™ optimizes light balance and color to prioritize the appearance of faces and render natural-looking skin tones, even in dim or backlit conditions. Logitech RightSound™ improves vocal clarity by suppressing background noise and echo, auto-leveling voices, and focusing on active speakers so that everyone in the meeting can hear and be heard.

“It’s great to see Logitech applying more intelligence to video meetings. Adding automation to functions like camera control, light and color balance, and acoustic tuning is a natural next step for video meetings,” said Roopam Jain, Industry Director for Conferencing and Collaboration, Frost & Sullivan. “Just as support for HD resolution has become table stakes for conference room cameras, I anticipate that more intelligent and automated meetings will quickly become a standard feature for room and desktop solutions.”

“Our goal is to eliminate the need to fiddle with remote controls, adjust lighting in the room, and move the mics and speakers around,” said Scott Wharton, vice president and general manager of the Logitech Video Collaboration. “Now, with Logitech RightSense technologies, you get a better automated user experience, with unprecedented audio and video performance. You can walk in and hold your meeting without thinking twice about the experience for the people on the far end.”

Pricing and Availability

Logitech RightLight and Logitech RightSound technologies are already included in a number of Logitech conferencecams and webcams. Logitech RightSight will be available later this year through a software download - see logitech.com/rightsight for information about availability and OS support.
