Earlier this week at ISE, Google announced its Hangouts Meet hardware kit for large meeting rooms, and as you may have noticed, Logitech PTZ Pro 2 powers the video capture for the meeting room solution. The Hangouts Meet hardware kit brings the reliable, easy-to-join video meeting experience of Hangouts Meet to the conference room. Its curated set of components work together end-to-end to make engaging HD meetings affordable—and headache-free.
Fixed-lens cameras — like laptop cameras and webcams — are optimized for subjects up to two feet away. PTZ Pro 2 is different: with a 10X zoom lens and motorized pan and tilt control, it’s perfect for medium and large conference rooms with 6 or more seats. Zoom in on active speakers. Pan to the whiteboard to share drawings and notes with remote participants. You can even define presets on the handheld remote control to easily switch between your favorite views. With the Google Hangouts Meet hardware kit and PTZ Pro 2, you get a high-end video conferencing experience for shared spaces within a friendly and familiar user experience. This video highlights the story behind developing the Logitech PTZ Pro 2.
The new Google Hangouts Meet Hardware Kit for large rooms is expected to be available this quarter in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Finland, France, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, New Zealand, Australia, and Japan. The kit will be available for purchase in the U.S. here.
