Logitech PH partners with Versatech Int’l for new pro-audio models for 2020

To expand innovative video conferencing solutions to local markets, Logitech Philippines announced that the business technology expert Versatech International will be its official distributor of two newly released pro-audio models for 2020.

“As video collaboration continues to grow, our goal is to provide solutions that are simple to use so you can perform your best no matter where you take your meetings and calls,” said Philippe Depallens, general manager of Personal Collaboration at Logitech. “We’ve tackled small, medium, and large meeting rooms with high-quality room solutions.”

Logitech has launched its new product designs called the Swytch, a one-cable link that enables laptop to connect to a room’s audiovisual (AV) equipment and run any video meeting or webinar, and the Zone Wired Headset, a universal serial bus (USB) headset for busy workspaces with premium audio drivers and advanced noise-canceling mic technology.

Swytch works in rooms with a dedicated computer — including Microsoft Teams Rooms and Zoom Rooms — and in BYOM (bring your own meeting) rooms equipped with only a conference camera and display. It has a content-sharing up to 4K resolution and a broadcast-quality video conferencing meeting.

While Zone Wired headset works with common calling applications across almost all platforms and operating systems. It is a noise-canceling dual-mic technology that accurately suppresses distracting sounds like keyboard clicks and nearby voices as close as 60 centimeters away.

“With Swytch, we’re taking it a step beyond ‘making every room a meeting room’ and enabling a native experience in conference rooms that anyone can use and enjoy,” said Scott Wharton, Vice President and General Manager of Logitech Video Collaboration.

The brand partnership aims to power up the market’s growing demand for professional business conferencing solutions and to streamline its delivery services for personal workspace and industries such as corporate, government, education, entertainment, broadcast, hospitality, and BPO sectors.

“Logitech is at the forefront of solutions that address the need for remote working environments by developing systems that enable businesses to seamlessly connect with their customers through (the) cloud, social, and IoT technologies,” Versatech International EVP Stephen Yu said.
