Logitech already has strong product integration with Cisco, Google and Microsoft
Logitech has announced the Logitech Collaboration Program (LCP), which aims to deliver “an enhanced, integrated collaboration experience to customers”.
Charter members of the new programme include Blue Jeans Network, BroadSoft, C2G, Lifesize, Vidyo and Zoom.
“The Logitech Collaboration Program will focus on an exceptional user experience by enhancing business communications with end-to-end solutions that simply work,” said Jason Moss, general manager of Logitech’s collaboration group.
“Working together with industry-leading technology companies on the integration of Logitech products will provide improved product functionality, customised user experiences, and will accelerate new innovations into the collaboration market.”
The LCP plans to enhance virtual meetings with solutions for “distraction-free” communication, group collaboration, face-to-face collaboration and mobile communications. Video integration features may include pan, tilt and zoom, far-end camera control, software presets, and H.264 video compression. Audio functions such as call/session answer, end and mute, hold and resume, and volume up and down can also be integrated into a solution.
Customers who purchase Logitech collaboration products, along with a product or service from an LCP member, will receive a solution that is “optimised for groups to collaborate anytime, and anywhere”, said Logitech.
For example, the Logitech ConferenceCam Connect, paired with videoconferencing software from an LCP member, may be enabled with far-end camera control, so users can operate the pan, tilt and zoom functions of a Logitech ConferenceCam in the other location, providing a richer collaboration experience.
In addition to the LCP, Logitech says it will continue its strong relationships and product integration efforts with Cisco, Google and Microsoft.
