Look the part with the new Logitech Brio 4K Pro Webcam
Logitech has a long standing history of producing exceptional hardware for businesses and consumers alike. Their most recent product addition, the Logitech Brio high-resolution 4K Pro Webcam, delivers an unparalleled webcam experience allowing you to produce 4K Ultra HD video for video conferencing and collaboration or live streaming. The Brio is the world’s first 4K webcam and is packed with a multitude of features including 5x digital zoom, high frame rates, and automatic login with facial recognition technology.
Priced at $199, the Brio 4K webcam is paired with high dynamic range (HDR) and Logitech’s RightLight technology which adjusts lighting to highlight and focus in on you no matter what lighting you are in. This is great if you need to hold video conferencing in rooms that don’t have the best lighting or need to avoid glare from the sun. The HDR also greatly improves the quality of the video significantly reducing any lag that many have dealt with from webcams. So no more frozen frames and jagged audio on your video conferences or video streams, you can produce movie quality live video like never before. The sound quality of the Brio is one of the best on the market with built in omni directional mics and built in noise cancelation.
Another great feature is the infrared facial recognition, compatible with Windows Hello, allowing you to easily login and use your webcam. The focus and zoom capabilities on this camera are exceptional. You can choose between 65°, 78°, and 90° field of view (FOV) making sure the camera is always in focus. It also has an autofocus feature with great color and resolution detail allowing you to easily eliminate and background visual clutter. As mentioned before the Brio supports 5x zoom capabilities at 1080p and 60fps all the while recording at the same resolutions and the ability to alter the field of view at three angles up to 90 degrees.
The design is sleek consisting of a simple pane of glass and can easily snap onto any screen without being obtrusive. There are multiple mounting options available with the removable clip and tripod mount. It’s plug and play USB connectivity makes it easy to setup on any device and supports multiple connection types including USB 2.0 Type A, USB 3.0 Type, A and C connections. Logitech claims the Brio is compatible with all major business applications including Skype, Cisco, and Logitech Collaboration cloud video partners. And while this is true Skype, Google Hangouts, WhatsApp and other chat applications only support a maximum 1080p video and do not have the capabilities to support two-way 4k HDR, for now at least. It also packs some pretty big bandwidth requirements on streaming 4096 x2160 at 30fps.
The Brio’s real ideal audience, aside from business video conferencing, is going to be for YouTubers and video vloggers who want to produce professional quality streaming direct to their channels. With YouTube supporting 4K streaming this video cam is the most cost effective way to get ahead of what is quickly going to become the industry standard for cameras.
