Logitech today announced Logitech Sync, a cloud-based platform for managing your business's products from the company. Aside from managing the devices, you'll also be able to monitor them, and the system will give you insights based on how they've been used.
For example, if you have a room that can hold dozens of people and that room is frequently hosting meetings with five or six people, Sync can suggest that you section off the space into smaller parts. It can also provide insights on managing your settings, seeing issues in real-time that might affect your meeting.
“Over the past five years, we’ve disrupted the market by building cost-effective,easy-to-use conferencecams that allow companies to deploy video devices in every meeting room,” said Scott Wharton, vice president and general manager of Logitech Video Collaboration. “And now, we’re applying that expertise to radically reduce the complexity and costs associated with video conference device management. As we look ahead, Sync will also have the added benefit of workplace analytics and insights. Simply put, Sync makes our devices as easy to manage as they are to use and deploy.”
IT admins will be able to easily manage all of the Logitech conference room cameras, updating the firmware for all of them with just a few clicks. You can also check device status and information from anywhere.
Coming in Q4 with a private beta this month, Logitech Sync supports the Rally and Meetup conference room cameras, and will support things like firmware updates and remote monitoring. Support for more devices is coming in 2020, along with settings management and room utilization insights. It will use a freemium model, charging extra for insights and advanced support.
