Logitech Releases Next-Gen Video Conference Camera


Logitech has released a next-generation AI-powered USB conference camera called MeetUp 2. This piece of kit is the successor to the MeetUp camera and is specifically designed for the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and PC-based setups in huddles and small meeting rooms.

The increasing popularity of huddle rooms means video conferencing tech needs to fit multiple scenarios, including catering for dedicated PC-based deployment or those using their laptop in a BYOD setup. Logitech has used AI-enhanced features in conference room devices for years to create experiences that focus on the human and deepen engagement among meeting colleagues (with no manual control needed). MeetUp 2 takes this a step further.

Designed for up to six people in a small room, MeetUp 2 offers the flexibility of deploying in USB mode with an in-room computer device or in BYOD mode connected to a laptop.

In BYOD setups, users connect their laptops or mobile devices to the MeetUp 2 with the optional Logitech Active USB Cable to run video meetings from their platform of choice. Concurrently, IT admins can monitor room status, deploy updates, and modify settings over ethernet or WiFi through Logitech Sync.

When MeetUp 2 is not in a meeting, the display in the room can be used for digital signage, allowing custom content, such as company logos or space usage instructions, through Logitech Sync and AppSpace.

“Logitech MeetUp 2 brings the power of AI with RightSight 2 to create dynamic views that draw remote users into the virtual meeting, and RightSound 2 for advanced voice equalisation and noise suppression,” said Logitech’s Henry Levak. “On the backend, IT teams can remotely monitor the devices and push out software updates to continuously make MeetUp 2 smarter over time. And not insignificantly, we’ve built this next-generation conference camera with next-life plastics.”

Logitech says the AI-driven video features of RightSight 2 create equitable experiences for remote participants by using intelligence to automatically focus and frame in-room participants, whether focusing on the active speaker, the group of participants, or each individual participant.

For advanced audio clarity, RightSound 2 uses AI-based algorithms that balance voices and filter out unwanted noise while reducing reverberation in rooms with echoes. MeetUp 2 works with popular video conferencing platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Google Meet.
