Since the beginning of this year, Logitech has been focusing on video meetings with the new Rally series. This is followed by a budget-friendly touch screen for easy interaction in these rooms. Now they want to make the central management of all these rooms clearer and simpler with Logitech Sync.
According to Logitech, barely three to five percent of all meeting rooms today have access to video. Cheaper technology and strong competition with Poly and Cisco make video an important growth market. Logitech is therefore launching Sync to improve the management of meeting rooms in the future.
With Sync, Logitech aims primarily at large companies that have ten, one hundred, one thousand or more meeting rooms that need to be monitored remotely. With Sync you can easily see the status of each meeting room and what went wrong. Think of a microphone that is not properly connected or hardware that needs to be replaced.
APIs and partners
Logitech Sync naturally supports all Logitech solutions but offers APIs for integration with others. The manufacturer has announced that Barco, Domotz, Nectar and Utelogy already have an integration with Sync. The larger this ecosystem, the better and more complete your meeting rooms can manage.
In addition to troubleshooting, Sync can also configure new meeting rooms and easily collect tickets if employees experience errors. Sync is an application that runs in a browser on IoT Services from AWS.
Thanks to this technology, Logitech will also deliver analytics under the name Insights in the future. This function will not be available until 2020. It allows IT admins to measure how meeting rooms are used and where optimizations are needed.
Today a private beta is available for those who want to get started with Logitech Sync. Fill in your details here and test the software within your company if you employ Logitech hardware and want to manage it better or easier.our launch article.
