People working from home faced issues ranging from poor internet connectivity and unflattering camera angles to poor lighting and sound quality issues. Companies have turned their attention to this untapped market after realizing the massive increase in people switching to a work-from-home format.
Logitech is one such company, known for producing a wide range of computer accessories, from keyboards and mice to speakers and headphones. The company recently announced the launch of a new product line aimed at professionals who primarily work from home. The new items include the Logitech Brio 500 webcam and a line of headphones sold under the Zone Vibe brand.
Logitech Brio 500 webcam series
While Logitech markets the Brio 500 webcam series as a new product line, the company already sells a webcam called the Logitech Brio. However, the first webcam model in the series, the Logitech Brio 505, differs significantly from the older Brio model while adding several new features.
For example, the Brio 505 includes a feature called Show Mode, which allows users to easily display sketches and objects on their desk. The Brio 505’s mounting system has also been updated, with a sensor that allows users to tilt the camera to their preferred angle. The camera can also flip the image to ensure that the output image is correctly oriented.
Furthermore, the Brio 505 features Logitech’s proprietary RightSight technology, which automatically frames the user even when they move. It also includes the RightLight 4 technology, which claims to improve video quality in low-light situations. Furthermore, the Brio 500 webcams are compatible with Logitech’s Sync Integration feature, which allows system administrators to remotely update firmware and troubleshoot issues. The webcam is also optimized for use with apps such as Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and Zoom.
The Brio 505 webcam is available in three colors: graphite, off-white, and rose. It will be available for purchase later this month for a suggested retail price of $129.
Logitech Zone Vibe headphones
The second Logitech product aimed at the work-from-home crowd is a line of headphones marketed as Zone Vibe. There are currently three models in the lineup: the Zone Vibe 100, Zone Vibe 125, and a wireless model called the Logitech Zone Vibe Wireless. All Zone Vibe headphones are designed to be worn for extended periods of time without causing fatigue. The Logitech Zone Vibe headphones are also very light, weighing less than 6.5 ounces.
Logitech’s Zone Vibe series headphones all have a knitted fabric layer that is soft to the touch. Memory foam is used in the earpads to increase comfort while wearing them. All Zone Vibe products, including the Brio 505 webcam, can be remotely managed for troubleshooting and software updates.
The ZoneVibe headphones, like the Brio 505 webcam, are available in three colors: graphite, off-white, and rose. In terms of pricing, the Logitech Zone Vibe 100 has a suggested retail price of $99.99, while the Logitech Zone Vibe 125 costs $129.99. Logitech has decided to sell the wireless variant — the Logitech Zone Vibe Wireless — for the same price as the Zone Vibe 125 — $129.99.
