Something small: Logitech has announced a new series of great value webcams designed to enhance video sessions at an affordable cost. The new Brio 300 Series is a plug-and-play webcam that supports Full HD (1080p/30fps) resolution with a 70-degree field of view and fixed focus. The webcams also have useful features like automatic light correction, a noise-reducing microphone, and a built-in privacy shutter to ensure the lens is blocked when not in use.
The cameras are offered in your choice of white, black, or pink and include a mounting clip and a five-foot USB-C cable. The colors are said to pair well with Logitech’s various mouse and keyboard fonts to create a sleek, streamlined setup.
If your system is only equipped with USB-A, you’ll also need to pick up an adapter, so you’ll want to factor that into the cost if you don’t already have one.
Brio cameras have a funky conical shape, which Logitech says is meant to add personality to your workspace.
The new Logitech cameras are compatible with the most popular video conferencing platforms and are certified for use with Google Meet, Zoom and Microsoft Teams. the Brio 300 And 305 It caters to consumers and business users, respectively, with the latter able to be deployed across organizations and managed remotely with Logitech Sync software.
