Swiss-American multinational manufacturer Logitech launched the new Brio 500 webcams that are more affordable and smarter than the competition.
The $129 webcams are made to be moved around and include features like auto-framing, Show Mode for showing things on your desks, ultra-wide lens, and light correction.
The Brio 500 webcams have multiple fields of view from 65 to 90 degrees, a magnetic mounting system with which you can adjust it for your face, and auto light correction via the RightLight 4.
The cylindrical-shaped Brio 500 has a new and improved 4-megapixel sensor that delivers improved image quality; it can go live at 720 at 60fps or 1080p at 30 fps.
A much-talked-about feature is ‘Show Mode,’ designed to let others see your desk by simply tipping the camera towards it. Another functionality is its latest privacy shutter which operates via a dial on the right side of the webcam.
The Brio 500 webcams include a pair of beamforming, noise-canceling microphones and “Right Sight” auto-framing that keeps you centered in the view, just like Apple’s ‘Center Stage.’
The webcam comes with a mount and a plastic clamp with a magnetic attachment that matches another magnet at the bottom of the webcam.
Logitech also unveiled the new Zone Vibe 100 and 125 headphones, available for $100 onward. The Brio 500 is now available in Off-White, Black, and Rose colors and starts at $129.
