As the world leader in webcams, we know it’s important to meet your expectations. And while we’ve introduced a number of award-winning webcams over the past few years, we’ve been a little quieter on the software side when it comes to everyday recording and streaming. We heard your feedback, and we’re working on it! Today, we’re happy to announce that our newest webcam app has entered public beta for customers using Logitech C920, C922 and BRIO 4K Pro Webcam.
What is a public beta?
Our intent with the public beta is to allow our customers to try out pre-release software and provide feedback that will help us understand how they like the software as well as identify opportunities to improve upon that experience. As with any public beta software that has not yet been commercially released, it may contain bugs and will likely not function as well as commercially released software.
Why are you releasing Logitech Capture?
When we introduced Logitech Webcam Software (LWS) years ago, it met the needs of most people using webcams for video calls and streaming. But the world has changed, and both technology and consumer needs have evolved. LWS was developed long before video streaming became a way of life. So while it offered some very basic features, it didn’t address the needs of today’s modern content creators.
The good news is that we’re here to change things up. We’re in the process of developing Logitech Capture, which aims to simplify video production by incorporating professional controls in an easy-to-use app. With Capture, you’ll be able to customize videos and create great content all within the app. Capture is designed to offer:
- The ability to record from multiple sources
- The ability to create vertical video in 9:16 format
- The ability to livestream to apps like YouTube using Capture as a virtual camera
- The ability to add professional studio-style controls to your recording
- The ability to customize your camera settings
With Logitech Capture, we’re addressing the need for new camera control software but we’re also taking things a step further. Logitech Capture is supported by Windows 7 and above, and a public beta is now available on Logitech.com through a free software download.
