The FINANCIAL — On July 20 Logitech announced the Logitech Collaboration Program (LCP) which aims to deliver an enhanced, integrated collaboration experience to customers. Charter members of the program 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, customized 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, according to Logitech.
Customers who purchase Logitech collaboration products, along with a product or service from an LCP member, will receive a solution that is optimized for groups to collaborate anytime, and anywhere. 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 continues its strong relationships and product integration efforts with Cisco, Google and Microsoft.
