Logitech Rally Bar Huddle and Sight AI camera brings equitable meeting experiences to small rooms and makes hybrid work meetings more equitable for remote participants.
This week, South Africa got a taste of the future of equitable meetings with the launch of the Logitech Rally Bar Huddle and Sight AI camera. As the newest additions to Logitech’s family of conference cameras, the Logitech Rally Bar Huddle and Sight AI are designed to deliver equitable video conferencing meetings with ease.
As companies redesign their office spaces to create more collaborative spaces for their hybrid workforce, huddle rooms have become more popular. According to research firm Futuresource, 68% of companies plan to invest in AV technology for small meeting rooms and huddle spaces.
“Huddle rooms are popping up faster than companies can video-enable them,” said Charis Nicholas, Head of High Touch and End User Video Collaboration in Southern Africa. “We designed the Rally Bar Huddle from the ground up to have the optimal AI functionality for modern equitable meetings while coming in at a price point that is affordable for any and every single huddle room out there."
Designed with built-in AI video intelligence, 4K image quality, and AI-based noise suppression, the Rally Bar Huddle is the gold standard for organisations looking to enable equitable meetings. Adhering to the highest sustainability standards, the plastic parts in Rally Bar Huddle include a minimum of 42% certified post-consumer recycled plastic. It is also quick to set up, simple to manage, and comfortably integrates with Tap IP through CollabOS.
The Rally Bar Huddle is specifically designed for rooms of up to six people to ensure every participant is seen and heard in 4K clarity. Using built-in AI video intelligence, meeting hosts can welcome remote participants to the conversation without compromising engagement. The newly improved ported audio system gives Rally Bar Huddle twice the audio quality of the Logitech MeetUp. It is partnered by an advanced sound pickup via six beamforming mics and AI-based noise suppression that creates a natural meeting experience for remote employees.
A Sight to behold:
Logitech Sight is an AI-powered tabletop camera that works with the Rally Bar or Rally Bar Mini to intelligently capture the best perspective of meeting participants and track their conversations as they move around the conference room. Currently, more than 43% of remote employees report not feeling included. The Logitech Sight helps solve this by giving remote workers an “at the table” experience when meeting with in-office colleagues.
Logitech Sight AI camera makes hybrid work meetings more equitable for remote participants. By extending audio and video into larger rooms, using the Rally Bar or Rally Bar Mini camera at the front of the room, Sight AI gives participants access to a range of alternate perspectives.
“We’re no longer all at home in equal-sized video boxes like we were during the height of the pandemic. In a hybrid work world, a mix of in-office and remote workers increases the challenge of delivering equitable experiences to everyone, “said Charis Nicholas.
With dual 4K cameras and seven beamforming microphones, Sight captures conversations and nonverbals as they naturally happen. This, in turn, enhances employee participation and engagement by helping remote attendees feel as if they’re in the room. Coming later after launch, Sight will enable RightSight with Smart Switching, adaptive intelligence that selects the best view between the tabletop camera and front-of-room camera, intuitively switching between views of in-person interactions and tracking conversations naturally.
By integrating with leading video conferencing platforms like Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Google Meet, Sight makes it easy to use hybrid-friendly meeting layout features like Zoom Smart Gallery and Microsoft Teams dynamic view. Compatibility with popular platforms also assures IT teams that their smart room technology will continue to meet the evolving needs of their hybrid workforce.
