Logitech and Microsoft to Transform the Conference Room with Project Rigel

20160309_102557Logitech has made great strides transforming the video collaboration space with enterprise quality tools priced for businesses of all sizes. Understanding the importance of remote collaboration for effective teamwork, Logitech proudly designs and produces audio and video hardware solutions that enhance collaboration for personal workspaces up to large-sized conference rooms.

Logitech and Microsoft have been long-time strategic partners in this space, and we have sold over 18 million A/V devices that are certified by Microsoft. Today, Microsoft announced an initiative codenamed “Project Rigel,” which will make the Skype Meeting experience pioneered on the Surface Hub easily accessible in every meeting space. Logitech is also excited to announce its plans to deliver a purpose built smart-dock for Project Rigel to seamlessly connect the system elements in a meeting room.

In addition, Logitech will certify elements of its portfolio for use with Project Rigel systems, including the Logitech ConferenceCam Connect, ConferenceCam GROUP and PTZ Pro Camera.

This relationship combines the familiarity and usability of the Skype Meeting experience with Logitech’s industry leading small- to medium- business hardware solutions. The Logitech ConferenceCam lineup complements the initiative by offering both razor sharp video and crystal clear audio at a price point so affordable, any business can transform its conference rooms into video collaboration spaces. By offering a range of brilliantly designed collaboration tools that are Certified for Skype for Business, Logitech continues to deliver products that connect people to the digital experiences they care about.
