You see, video conferencing is no longer constrained inside the boardroom. It is now everywhere, and your hardware is needed to be as alert as your team.
What is the Logitech Meetup?
The Logitech Meetup is a smooth sound bar camera that is designed especially for the huddle room and loaded with groundbreaking technology for enhanced video in small settings. The device is considered the alternative to Connect for huddle rooms and meeting rooms, providing a much conventional form factor, a higher specification and a higher price.

There is no doubt that the 4K video conferencing is on its way and the company strives to be one of the very first in the queue of one’s business. It presented its 4K Brio webcam, and now it’sLogitech Meetup brings the Ultra High Definition to huddle rooms and small conference settings.
At 400 millimeters wide, the enormous sound bar can be positioned on a wall along with the supplied bracket, under a monitor or TV on top of it via the optional mounting bracket. Bordered on every side of the speaker grilles, the Logitech Meetup camera takes center stage along with its 4k Ultra High Definition sensors and a massive 120 degrees field of view.
The lens lies in a motorized carrier for remote tilt and pans operations, and it features a 5X digital zoom. In case you didn’t know yet, the kit offers a robust metal RF remote control handset along with controls for, mute, volume levels, zoom, tilt, and pan, ending or making voice calls and even activating Bluetooth.
At the rear of the device is a port for the external power supply. You will also find a Type C USB 3 port for connection to a Mac or PC running your VC app. The kit is also composed of five meters USB 2 Cable that supports High Definition 1080p video streaming exclusively.

The handy camera settings utility of the device will allow you to see the camera feed to help to position, select widescreen or standard modes, and chant color balance, brightness, and contrast.
The Logitech Meetup can also be controlled remotely along with the ConferenceCam Soft Remote app of Logitech’sboth for iOS and Android. If there is an available iPad, you can scan the network, and you will find the Windows host PC along with the camera connected, linked to it and opened up a soft replica of the RC handset.

Skype meetings are simple to set up, and WebEx had no concerns either. However, as with every current VC Services, they support 1080p video streaming only. Even so, video quality was clear and sharp with excellent color balance and control. What’s more, the zoom function can be controlled remotely as well.
The Logitech Meetup speaker did well and can cover any room. Direct comparisons along with portable ConferenceCam Connection of Logitech showed that the Logitech Meetup could offer higher volume levels.
