Logitech introduced two new product lines, Brio 500 webcams and Zone Vibe headphones, to meet the changing needs of hybrid workers.
A recent study found that when using a built-in laptop camera, more than 89% of work-from-home adults experience unflattering camera angles, poor lighting conditions, and field-of-view limitations. Brio 500 webcams and Zone Vibe headphones address the issues that users face when working from home while also modernizing work and play experiences. Both help IT managers equip their organizations’ remote and hybrid workforces in an environmentally sustainable manner.
“Many remote and hybrid workers are still underequipped and grappling with pre-pandemic era solutions,” said Scott Wharton, general manager of Logitech Video Collaboration. “Our innovative new genre of Brio webcams and Zone Vibe headphones answer the call of modern workers who need business-grade quality, style, and affordability for work and play. Transformational features like Brio’s Show Mode open up new sharing opportunities for teachers, designers, and architects to easily present physical objects, notes, and sketches remotely over video.”
Brio 500 Webcams
Brio 500 series (Brio 500 and Brio 505) is a new class of webcams that solve the most common video conferencing challenges. It was designed for those who want enterprise-grade audio and video quality, personalization, and more engaging experiences on video calls. The Brio 500 series includes the Show Mode feature, which allows you to easily share sketches or other physical objects on your desk. Brio automatically flips the image to render the correct orientation into video calls, thanks to an innovative mounting system and built-in sensor that allows users to tilt the camera down to focus on objects.
Individuals can customize their workstation to suit their personality and taste thanks to the stylish design and fashionable colors-graphite, off-white, and rose. RightSight technology (enabled via Logi Tune) automatically frames the user, even when they move around, and built-in innovations like RightLight 4 automatically correct poor lighting.
Zone Vibe Headphones
Logitech’s new Zone Vibe wireless headphones are the market’s first to combine business-grade performance with comfort, style, and affordability. They are also available in graphite, off-white, and rose colors, and are designed to be comfortable for all-day collaboration with colleagues and family connections. These 6.5-ounce over-the-ear headphones are made of soft-to-the-touch knitted fabric and memory foam.
Brio series is plug-and-play, compatible with most video conferencing platforms, and certified for Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and Zoom, making it ideal for IT teams outfitting employee workstations and home offices. Logitech Sync integration with Brio 505 enables IT administrators to update firmware and troubleshoot issues, allowing hybrid teams to collaborate without interruption.
Zone Vibe Wireless provides the opportunity to provide employees with enterprise-grade audio that is simple to use and stylish for a variety of users, so they no longer have to sacrifice “looking good” for “sounding good.” Furthermore, because of the compatibility with video conferencing platforms and the ability to push updates via Logi Tune and Logitech Sync, IT has fewer headaches and help desk tickets to manage.
Logitech’s new webcams and headphones help workers thrive in today’s hybrid era—professional enough for the office, yet ideal for working from home—while also making it easier for IT teams to help users perform at their best while also doing the right thing for the environment.
The carbon footprint of the Brio 500 series and Zone Vibe headphones has been reduced to zero as a result of Logitech’s investment in carbon-offsetting and removal projects. Brio 500’s plastic parts are made of certified post-consumer recycled plastic: 68% for graphite and black, and 54% for off-white and rose. Zone Vibe contains at least 25%** recycled plastic.
Both product lines are packaged in paper sourced from FSC®-certified forests and other carefully selected sources.
