Wainhouse Research analysts recently conducted a review of the newly released Logitech GROUP video conferencing system, and their verdict is in. According to analysts Ira Weinstein and Saar Litman, “Logitech GROUP is an enterprise conferencing no-brainer.”
Logitech GROUP is an affordable video solution that costs less than $US 1,000 per system and allows any meeting space to be a fully flexible, multi-use video collaboration space. But don’t take our word for it. Below are five reasons pulled from the Wainhouse report that highlight why your organization should invest in Logitech GROUP:
It’s easy to use. GROUP is a true plug-and-play room system, taking less than five minutes for its one-time setup. Wainhouse analysts said it took more time to unbox the handful of components than it took to connect the solution, with no configuration required.
It offers a BYOD meeting experience with better audio and video. GROUP allows participants to connect their personal device including tablets, laptops, etc. to the system. GROUP includes a 1080p, PTZ camera with a 90-degree field of view and an audio base with four microphones offering 360-degree coverage.
It works with virtually any standard video conferencing application. Whether your organization uses Microsoft Skype for Business / Lync, Cisco Jabber, Blue Jeans Network, Zoom, or any other application, Logitech GROUP will enhance your audio and video experience. Wainhouse successfully tested six different platforms across multiple devices and found the system easily connected to every call.
It’s suitable for small and mid-sized conference rooms. Optional extension mics to accommodate groups up to 20 people. With a 90-degree field of view, a Bluetooth speakerphone that comes standard with the system, and the ability to add up to two extension mics, Logitech GROUP works well in small and mid-sized conference rooms. According to Wainhouse, “what it does it does quite well in a neat and tidy form factor.”
It’s highly affordable. Wainhouse declares that GROUP really shines in terms of the “bang for the buck” when you consider its sub-$1k base price, which is far below that of legacy conference room systems. The report mentions that the price “low enough for use in thousands of meeting rooms,” making GROUP a great video solution for organizations large and small.
As Weinstein points out in his video overview, “With this level of performance and a sub one thousand dollar price tag, our view is that Logitech GROUP is an enterprise no-brainer.”
