Logitech Provides Easy Integration with Teleconferencing Apps
The Rally system comes with a remote control for manual camera adjustments. But in my testing, it always captured the best shot alone. It even knows to point down when not in use, so it won’t accidentally capture something it shouldn't.
The Rally easily integrates into teleconferencing programs such as Google Hangouts Meet, Microsoft Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams and Zoom.
The Logitech Rally videoconferencing system holds its own with dedicated in-room meeting systems. Yet it won’t break the bank, and performs many of its functions automatically — no director or film degree needed.
Logitech RightSense Software Powers Intelligent Videoconferencing
One of the biggest reasons the Logitech Rally videoconferencing system is so impressive is the RightSense software that powers its automatic operation. Here’s how it works.
I ran tests of the system in several locations. Most of those places were not optimized as meeting rooms. They were either too dark or had too much sunlight, or were cursed with a lot of background noise. And yet, the meetings held using the Rally system always looked like professional — and professionally filmed — gatherings.
The secret to filming the perfect meeting is Logitech’s RightSense technology, which automatically performs directorial and post-production functions, such as panning and zooming the camera, or reducing the amount of background noise while focusing on the speaker’s voice. As a bonus, the system is completely automatic, so meetings and videos look great and require almost no work to get there.
Logitech RightSense technology comprises three main components: RightSound, RightSight and RightLight.
The RightSight camera control is the heart of the system. It automatically frames meeting participants, adjusting as needed when new people begin to speak by panning and zooming to frame them perfectly.
RightSound does for audio what RightSight does for video. It optimizes voices by suppressing background noise, and it can autolevel voices so nobody is talked over in a roundtable discussion.
Last but not least, the RightLight component balances light and optimizes color to prioritize facial features. It captures skin tones accurately, even in dimly lit or backlit spaces. We filmed meetings in a variety of conditions, with people of different complexions. Nobody was washed out or lost in the shadows. In fact, everyone looked amazing when presenting in front of the Rally videoconferencing system.
We achieved great results in our test meetings every time, with little or no effort. Even a dedicated meeting room system can’t always do that. But it’s easy with the Logitech Rally, where perfect meetings are a plug-and-play away.
