Logitech International is a Swiss company with a focus on personal computer and its accessories. After a generation of basic webcams, the tech organization intends to attract the attention of its target public with a new concept. This time, Logitech is going to implement the latest technology created by modern times in a slick piece of hardware. After a series of plain names like C920 or C930e, people are going to remember the BRIO from Logitech as the first 4K webcam in the world.
While users usually want to achieve one goal only with their webcams, that of enabling video communication, Logitech intends to introduce on the market a product with a large variety of features. The first 4k webcam is going to employ a 13-megapixel sensor that is capable of streaming 4k images. The product will also have a frontal sensor and infrared LED. This equipment will allow users to benefit from advanced security methods that are based on facial recognition. Thus, BRIO will be compatible with Windows Hello and other similar applications.
The new sophisticated 4K webcam will also take care of the light conditions during streaming. The HDR and Logitech Rightlight 3 will make BRIO the best product in terms of high-contrast and bright conditions. Thanks to a powerful sensor, the owners will be able to position their webcam at the perfect angle, be it a 65-degree, 78-degree, and 90-degree. The hardware is capable of even 720p at 90FPS for streaming. However, the 4K feature is restricted to a USB 3.0 port only.
Another innovative feature for a webcam will be the 5x zoom capability that can deliver perfect video quality even at a 1080p image. Logitech customers will be able to place their new gadget in any thinkable position. The 4k webcam will come with both a clip that can attach BRIO directly onto the monitor and a tripod thread that can ensure a well centered image without the trepidations that come when a person holds the cam.
The first 4k webcam in the world seems to be primarily targeted to professionals, vloggers, streamers, and YouTubers. Scott Wharton who is the head of Video Collaboration at Logitech is going to introduce his latest product at ISE that lasts until February 10. Those that desire such a product can already purchase BRIO for a price of $199 from Logitech only.
