The use of social media, especially for digital conferences, has increased during this pandemic. We can see this from the many people who use it for work and personal utilization, such as online seminars or online meetings and video calls with relatives.
One of the hardware we need for online seminars and meetings is a conference cam. The Logitech ConferenceCam BCC950 is an all-in-one video conferencing solution that combines a webcam and a high-quality speakerphone with an omnidirectional microphone. This full-duplex omni-directional speakerphone delivers sound evenly in all directions, in one compact USB device. This reliable Logitech product is able to transform small or medium-sized meeting rooms into dedicated spaces to collaborate across different teams to create greater efficiency and productivity for professionals.
BCC950 Quirky Design
The BCC950 was designed to enhance virtual face-to-face conversations by enabling eye-level conversations. Resembling the antenna on Po from Teletubbies, the camera has an option to be mounted on top of a functional stem/antenna that allows you to control the camera. Otherwise, it can also mounted directly on the base.
The built of BCC950 was made to be compact and lightweight, making it easy to carry from one meeting place to another. Taking it along from home to office is easy and simple even for setting up.
To simply set up, just connect the speaker to the power cable, and the other cable to the projecting device (laptop). Watch video for visual guide.
The camera of BCC950 conference cam can rotate 180 degrees pan and tilt (left-right & up-down) through the remote control. Apart from controlling the camera, the control panel and remote control can also be used to answer calls, end calls, adjust volume, or to mute the microphone.
Notable Features of Logitech ConferenceCam BCC950
The camera features Carl Zeiss lens technology, enabling fast autofocus and sharp 4K resolution. The resulting quality is exceptional for both photos and videos. The camera in the BCC950 can adapt very well to different lighting conditions. When in low light, it can adjust the lens to enhance the brightness of the video feed. In terms of video quality, it is capable of producing full HD 1080p videos at 30fps with H.264 UVC video technology.
With a 78-degree camera viewpoint and an additional camera pole, the BCC950 is able to expand meeting size up to 4 people in a room. The rotating camera makes the BCC950 very useful to highlight a presentation on a whiteboard or even a person in a small size room. When we require a specific focus or a closer view, this camera has the feature to zoom in and out spontaneously. Although the results are not exquisitely detailed, the zoom-in feature tested to have worked sufficiently to project the material or subject of its focus.
In terms of audio quality, the BCC950 is equipped with noise-cancelling and acoustic echo cancellation technology. So, when we are in a meeting, disturbing background sound can be reduced significantly. When we don’t use the BCC950 camera for video conferencing, we can use the speakers to listen to music. The resulting sound does not disappoint and is enough to spoil the ears of music lovers.
The Logitech ConferenceCam BCC950 works on both Macs and PCs. Furthermore, it is compatible with various video conferencing applications, including Skype for Business, Zoom, BlueJeans, Broadsoft, Cisco Jabber, Fuze, LifeSize Cloud, and Vidyo.
