Logitech Unveils New Unified Communications Solutions
Allowing companies to make the most out of their UC investments, Logitech unveiled a variety of unified communications (UC) solutions. These products include Business HD webcams and headsets optimized for Microsoft Lync 2010.
The new UVC-compliant webcam is easy to deploy and manage—with support for command-line, silent installation, the company stated.
With the installed base of fully integrated UC solutions predicted to grow from 2.1 million users in 2009 to 50 million users by 2015, companies are adopting UC solutions at an increasingly faster pace, stated a rep[ort by Frost & Sullivan. Logitech’s new UC solutions are relevant in today’s market as companies refresh their communications infrastructure and implement UC to improve cost savings and productivity.
“Part of our effort to bring seamless HD video communications to anyone, anywhere, on any connected screen, includes supporting collaborative communications in the enterprise as well as their integration into business processes,” said Eric Kintz, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s video business, in a press release. “With this lineup of UC products optimized for Lync, we’re helping to bring the value of UC to life – enabling businesses to take full advantage of their UC investments.”
With partnerships such as Carl Zeiss that deliver an unmatched level of quality, Logitech has more than 15 years of experience developing market-leading webcams. Working with Microsoft builds on that offering with products specifically designed to improve the user UC experience by delivering improved clarity and conversation quality, the company stated. Offering 720p HD video conferencing and stereo audio for business users on their PC, the latest addition to the lineup is the Logitech B910 HD Webcam.
Recently, the company announced two new headsets featuring support for super wideband audio, the quality of sound produced is impeccable. The two new releases by Logitech – the Logitech USB Headset H530 and the Logitech Laptop Headset H555 – deliver pure, unadulterated digital sound that is really music to the ears.
