War, periodic power outages, economic and resource crises – all this changed the working conditions of Ukrainian business. Many teams found themselves in different cities or even countries, forced to work on blackout schedules and schedule meetings in literally any conditions.
Video communication remains extremely important for collaboration. Thanks to it, people can see and hear each other regardless of where they are.
The Logitech team talks about the modern solutions it has developed in the partner material. Among them is a universal video panel with modes and functions that create a picture like a movie and leave no one behind, a touch control panel for programs, a platform for controlling devices, a special camera for marker boards, etc.
Among the devices for video communication that Logitech produces are not only the usual web cameras, but also complex solutions designed for conducting video conferences.
A vivid example is the third-generation video conferencing system. They differ from the equipment of the previous generation in their complete autonomy. Thanks to the built-in operating system and popular applications for video communication, such as MS Teams, Zoom, Google Meet and others, the system can be used without connecting to a laptop or PC. Additional systems and accessories, such as Swytch, Tap Scheduler, Scribe and others, allow you to fully equip meeting rooms of any configuration.
