Logitech introduces ViewPort AV 100 for business desktop video communications
Logitech has announced the Logitech ViewPort AV 100, a product designed to bring video communications to the workplace PC. The company says this new product gives developers and solution providers a versatile, high-quality audio and video device that serves as the foundation for a desktop video communications solution. The Logitech ViewPort AV 100, which is USB based, combines a Logitech video camera, an integrated microphone with acoustic echo cancellation, and a Bluetooth wireless headset into a single console.

Logitech is marketing the ViewPort AV 100 with Polycom's PVX software video conferencing solution to enterprise customers. The ViewPort/PVX solution extends Polycom's voice and video experience to the PC, delivering TV-like video quality at 30 frames per second with H.264 video compression, and near-CD quality audio using Polycom's Siren 14 (14 kHz) sound.

Logitech is also working with RADVISION and VCON to deliver video conferencing solutions using ViewPort AV 100.

The front of the ViewPort AV 100 contains only two buttons: one to launch the conferencing application, and the other to block video and mute sound for temporary privacy during a conference call. The design also incorporates a docking cradle to house and recharge the included Bluetooth wireless headset. The Logitech ViewPort AV 100 offers the option of communicating through an embedded microphone for conferencing mode, or through the Bluetooth wireless headset for privacy and mobility.

The Logitech ViewPort AV 100 has a 51-degree field-of-view, with an automatic face tracking and zooming system that keeps the subject framed.

The Logitech ViewPort AV 100 will initially be available to solution providers, VARs and system builders. Subsequently, it will be marketed as an enterprise solution through these system integrator channels.
