The Logitech solution includes a full HD webcam that easily mounts to a laptop lid, conventional monitor or tripod, and furthers the notion of ubiquitous videophones that's been with us almost since the telephone itself. The C920-C Webcam can capture 1080p at 30 frames-per-second and has a 78-degree field of view to easily facilitate multiple-party calls.
For $269 list, the Logitech UC Solution for Cisco 725-C is a sturdy, well-conceived solution that's suited to trading floors, call centers, retail and other areas with limited desktop space. The way Logitech sees it, the convergence of communications presents open doors for resellers. "Phone, video, email and instant messaging were once all running as separate systems. Now that they're coming together, it's an important opportunity for resellers to offer converged solutions," the spokesperson said. The solution works with Windows desktops and laptops, and requires Cisco Jabber 9.2 or later. It runs on Cisco Unified Communications Manager systems with the accessory manager feature enabled.
