Logitech Launches AI-powered Whiteboard Camera

NDM Network

Published

on

Logitech introduced Logitech Scribe, an AI-powered whiteboard camera, in the Indian Market in order to create a more equitable meeting experience for remote participants.      Logitech Scribe, compatible with leading services like Microsoft Teams and Zoom, broadcasts whiteboard content into video meetings with incredible clarity, virtually transporting everyone into the same room.  

From meeting rooms to classrooms, Logitech Scribe comes at a crucial time when hybrid work and learning has become more pervasive. Logitech Scribe makes brainstorming, teaching, and team meetings equally accessible and productive for all participants through its simple-to-use design. Leveling the playing field for distributed teams, Scribe gives everyone — in-room or remote — a perfect view of the board. 

On the launch of Logitech Scribe, Scott Wharton, General Manager and Vice President, Logitech Video Collaboration said, “We’ve obsessively worked toward solving the problems of providing high-quality audio and video collaboration in both meeting rooms and remote desktops, but there remains a gap in integrating non-digital content like whiteboards, or Post-its™ into virtual meetings. Logitech Scribe works because it takes advantage of what people already know how to do: pick up a marker and draw on a whiteboard. Now, we’re able to elevate non-digital collaborative content for everyone to see in high fidelity, while being extremely easy to use and share, thanks to its compatibility with today’s most popular cloud services like Teams and Zoom.     

Enhanced integrations with Microsoft Teams Rooms and Zoom Rooms make the experience effortless. In-room participants can begin sharing whiteboard content into video meetings by simply pressing the wireless button included with Scribe or tapping the meeting room touch controller, like Logitech Tap. The wireless button currently works with Zoom Rooms, and support for Teams Rooms will come later this year. Scribe also works as a USB content camera with virtually any video conferencing application, providing the flexibility to use Scribe in meeting rooms, classrooms, or even home offices.

Capturing dry erase surfaces up to six by four feet, Logitech Scribe is a dedicated whiteboard camera that gives virtual meeting participants a clear, real-time view of the whiteboard. Using built-in artificial intelligence, Scribe can render the presenter transparent, so remote users can see the whiteboard with nothing in the way, and automatically enhances the color of markers so the content is easier to read. Scribe even has the ability to detect other non-digital content like Post-its, a favorite tool for collaboration sessions. Whether viewing from a laptop at home or on the meeting room display, Scribe makes sure everyone has the best seat at the table.

With a clean, wall-mounted design and thoughtful cable management, Scribe elegantly blends into any modern office or classroom. Plus, it comes with everything you need to quickly get it up and running. Together with the whiteboard content camera, Scribe includes a wireless share button, mounting components, power supply, and category cables for deployment at scale. With Scribe, Logitech is expanding what it does best: creating collaborative tools that make it easier for people to interact with the digital world in more natural and meaningful ways.

“With the almost immediate corporate change from in-office to work from home, this past year has required us to make a lot of adjustments. Logitech may have seen these same issues, but they didn’t stop working and created a great product,” said Will Cool, video conference standards and operations at PayPal. “Scribe brings the ‘in-room collaboration’ feeling to global conferencing through a sleek and modern whiteboard device. Scribe’s high-definition imaging and plug-and-play connectivity make for an effective and easy to install tool that is essential within the hybrid collaboration industry.”

Continued Ehrika Gladden, vice president of the global video collaboration commercial organization at Logitech, “Whether your mission includes creativity, design, development, or teaching we’ve gotten a glimpse of what the tech-enabled collaboration of the future can look like with Scribe.”

Pricing and Availability Logitech Scribe is now available in the Indian market with MRP starting at INR 184,995 from major channel partners. It is currently compatible with Teams Rooms on Windows and Zoom Rooms. Zoom Rooms Appliances support will be available after launch. For virtually any video conferencing service, Scribe can also operate as a standalone USB content camera when connected to a computer or laptop.

At its core, the Alpha ZV-E10 features a 24.2-megapixel (approx. effective) APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine to produce high-quality imagery with high-sensitivity, detailed texture depiction and beautiful natural bokeh. Additionally, the Alpha ZV-E10 includes the acclaimed video-specific features favored in the popular digital camera ZV-1 including “Background Defocus” that can smoothly switch between a blurred (bokeh) and sharp background, as well as the “Product Showcase Setting” mode that allows the camera to automatically shift focus from the subject’s face to an object being highlighted. 

“For the growing needs of today’s creators to have a creative edge, Sony introduces latest interchangeable-lens camera, the Alpha ZV-E10,” said Mr. Mukesh Srivastava, Head of Digital Imaging Business at Sony India. “The new Alpha ZV-E10 is an amalgamation of the versatility and excellence in image quality of a larger-sensor interchangeable lens camera that offers user-friendly features, specifically designed for still and video, making it an ideal tool for creators looking to transition to a more advanced set up.”


Design and functionality optimized for Vloggers making it a perfect Vlogging partner

The Alpha ZV-E10 features a video-first design in a lightweight form factor (approx. 12 oz. / 343g) and includes the popular side-opening Vari-angle LCD Screen that allows creators to connect external mics on top of the camera. This simplifies their setup while still allowing users to see the screen in selfie shooting mode and from high and low angles.  In addition to the screen, the Alpha ZV-E10 includes several other easy-to-use functions that are specifically designed for still and video, including a new Still/Movie/Slow and Quick motion button located on the top of the camera that allows creators to easily change between their desired shooting mode with just one touch.

Steady shot, active mode for advanced image stabilization even when shooting hand-held while walking

The new Alpha ZV-E10 camera offers electronic image stabilization with Active Mode which delivers stable video recording even while walking and shooting hand-held. Further, the Alpha ZV-E10’s advanced AF (autofocus) technology provides fast, precise AF with excellent tracking performance, as well as high quality audio for clear sound recording. 


An Interchangeable Lens Camera for expanded creative expression and versatility

The Alpha ZV-E10 allows the user to expand their creative expression by utilizing the ideal lens for each individual scene they want to shoot.

Advanced Autofocus with Real-time tracking and Eye Autofocus for shooting on the go

Sony’s industry-leading AF technology enables the user to leave the focusing duties to the camera so that they can concentrate on composing their shot. The Alpha ZV-E10 includes Fast Hybrid AF and Real-time Eye AF for video, Real-time Tracking that allows the camera to keep track of the subject’s face and eyes for fast and precise autofocusing even while shooting on-the-go and in challenging environments.

Additionally, the Alpha ZV-E10’s Touch Focus function allows the user to intuitively set the focus position in still images by simply touching the screen. With one tap, the user can instantly shift the focus position to a subject in the image periphery.  This is available in both still and video modes. 


High Quality Audio along with reliable and versatile sound options

Sony’s leading technology enables the Alpha ZV-E10 to capture crystal clear sound recording that clearly captures the speaker’s voice, thanks to its internal Directional 3-Capsule Mic and the supplied wind screen to greatly reduce wind noise. For expanded audio options, the Alpha ZV-E10 includes a Digital audio interface via Multi Interface (MI) Shoe Cap and a mic jack to connect an external mic. The inclusion of a headphone jack allows the user to connect headphones to accurately monitor sound recordings. Audio output timing can also be set for Live or Lip Sync. 

Auto exposure maintains the brightness putting the subject first

When shooting in different settings with dramatic changes in light, the user can rest assured that the Alpha ZV-E10 will automatically correct the exposure so that the subject’s face is not over or under exposed, using an original Face Priority AE (autoexposure) algorithm capable of rapid AE transitions. This allows the camera to detect the subject’s face and adjusts the exposure to ensure that the face is depicted at optimal brightness, even when selfie-shooting in scenes with extreme changes in lighting, and even if the subjects face turns away momentarily from the camera. In addition, the camera features the same advanced color science from the popular ZV-1 to optimize skin tones for any subject in both still and video modes.


Cutting-edge Video Features for flawless vlogs and videos

The new Alpha ZV-E10 camera includes advanced video features such as 4K video shooting through full pixel readout without pixel binning and Slow & Quick Motion with High-speed full HD recording at 120 fps.

A recording lamp (tally light) is also provided on the front face of the body for an at-a-glance indication of recording status. A red frame on the LCD screen also appears while recording which quickly lets the user know if the recording is active when behind the camera. A unique feature of the Alpha ZV-E10 is the zoom lever that can operate optical zoom with power zoom lenses and Clear Image zoom with prime lenses. When pairing the camera with a prime lens, the user can zoom without losing video resolution to maintain full 4K video. The user can also choose from 8 zoom speed settings for added creative flexibility. 

Impressive battery life to record for hours without any worry

The Alpha ZV-E10 features long battery performance with enough power to capture up to 125 minutes or 440 images on a full charge so the user can record for long periods without worry.  Power can be supplied through a USB Type-C® connector, allowing external batteries to power the camera for extended battery life when shooting on the go. ​To conserve the camera’s battery, the Alpha ZV-E10’s Vari-angle LCD Screen allows the user to put the camera into Power save mode by closing it and instantly shoot by opening the panel.
