Hybrid working: Everyone has an equal seat at the table

Hybrid working, with video participants distributed in the office or in different locations – whether at home, in a café or elsewhere – has created a challenge for businesses to maintain equitable meetings where everyone enjoys the opportunity to collaborate, communicate and contribute.

Logitech Sight: A tabletop camera with intelligent multi-participant framing.

With many employees now all used to working from home where everyone is in equal-sized video boxes, when it comes to hybrid meetings some remote participants may be nervous about having their face beamed on to
a large screen in a room. They might even struggle to participate because they cannot see individual facial expressions of those from the conference room.

These are just a few of the reasons why Logitech designed Sight – an AI-powered tabletop camera for meeting rooms which displays a multiparticipant view to remote attendees as if they are seated opposite colleagues – and Rally Bar Huddle – an all-in-one video bar for huddle and small rooms.

Both are part of Logitech’s line-up of New Logic of Work innovations, where technology solutions are designed for people in all spaces and look to level the playing field for all workers, regardless of where they choose to collaborate from.

Capture-all camera
Sight works alongside front-of-room conference cameras such as Logitech’s Rally Bar and Rally Bar Mini. It’s 4K cameras and seven beamforming microphones help provide alternative perspectives, capturing conversations and nonverbals as they happen naturally. Enabled by Logitech’s RightSight with Smart Switching (coming via software update in 2024), it selects the best view to capture in-person interactions and track conversations.

Solutions to meet new office layouts
Rally Bar Huddle was designed in direct response to the rising trend of businesses creating huddle rooms to increase hybrid collaboration. Perfect for rooms up to six people, it ensures everyone is seen and heard clearly. Built-in AI video intelligence and 4K image and AI-based noise suppression mean remote employees can enjoy a natural meeting experience as if they are in the room.

Get up and running fast
Sight can easily be installed in any type of meeting room, with included mounts and integrated cables – key for IT teams who need to quickly equip collaboration spaces in a flexible, scalable way.

Rally Bar Huddle can be deployed three ways – with a dedicated Windows or ChromeOS computer; in BYOD mode; or supported video conferencing applications on the device in appliance mode without an external computer. Like Sight, it works with leading video conferencing platforms, including Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Google Meet.
