Product focus: Logitech Room Solutions for Google Meet

Mark Childerhouse, sales director at Pioneer Group, espouses the usability benefits of this range of Google Meet solutions

What environments do you typically install Logitech Room Solutions for Google Meet?
This is the perfect meeting or huddle room product for businesses using the Google 365 platform. It’s the most advanced of the Google Meet solutions for the meeting space so far and its available in small, medium and large configurations. Using different infrastructure options the Logitech Room Solutions for Google Meet come pre-configured with a Google-approved Chromebox, a Logitech conferencecam, a Chromebox mount with cable retention, and the Logitech Tap touch controller.

Why do you specify this product over competitor offerings?
This is a product from Logitech with direct collaboration from Google. It’s been created by two of the world’s foremost technology companies who are continuously developing the future of videoconferencing. If you use Google Meet, then this will be a seamless experience for your meeting, which is as intuitive as on your device, as it is on your desktop. 

What are the most impressive elements of its feature set?
The star component of the suite is the Rally Camera. It features a 4K sensor and PTZ, plus USB connectivity to ensure it’s compatible with every leading videoconferencing software platform with no additional software required. It also uses the Logitech RightSight camera control, which automatically moves and adjusts the lens to frame participants regardless of the room size, as well as the Logitech RightLight technology to optimise light balance.

The camera can be used on its own as an independent USB camera or integrated with a range of Rally accessories such as microphone pods, wall speakers, mounting kits, and a clever cable management solution. Bundled together to make the perfect out-of-the-box solutions for small, medium and large meeting rooms, the Room Solution can connect to your call at a single touch.

What elements of the feature set make your job easier?
Systems arrive ready for installation, so our teams can quickly configure bundles and do multiple rooms on site in a day. The fact that the previous Logitech and Google products are similar in their controls will also help users to quickly familiarise themselves. The products are also designed for the Google Meet ecosystem, which easily integrate into the existing IT backbone. 

If an updated version of this product was to be released, what upgrades would you like to see?
These products are perfectly crafted for how people choose to collaborate now. As most meetings are between two people with remote participants, its set-up is easy and quick to use preventing wasted time at the start of the meeting. The area which will develop rapidly will be the software elements of the product, which will reflect the development of the consumer market in audio and picture quality.
