Brio 300: Logitech introduces new webcams

Logitech has introduced two new webcams that together form the Brio 300 series. The two webcams only differ from each other in their field of application: The Brio 300 model is aimed at private users, while the Brio 305 webcam is intended for businesses. The latter webcam can be configured centrally, but beyond that it does not differ from the Brio 300.

Full HD resolution and noise reduction

The two new webcams are plug-and-play devices that are intended to be as easy to use as possible. They are primarily aimed at people who work from home. Logitech’s marketing of the webcams refers to a survey that found that there are often problems with picture and sound quality in the home office. With location flexibility still being enabled in many businesses post-pandemic, Logitech has made it its goal to address the aforementioned issues.

Scott Wharton, manager of Logitech B2B, was suitably euphoric about the two new devices, saying, “We surveyed more than 3,000 remote workers and found that without webcams, they mostly struggled with poor lighting conditions, awkward camera angles and poor sound quality from their laptop speakers. The Brio-300 series webcams are perfect for those who want to take the simple, but crucial step of significantly improving their video conferencing experience with an external webcam.”

Both models offer full HD resolution of 1,080 pixels. Image quality is also said to be improved by high dynamic contrast and automatic light correction. Logitech thus promises a good picture overall even in poor lighting conditions in the room. The quality of the sound is also supposed to increase thanks to the Brio 300 and Brio 305. Both cameras have noise-canceling microphones. Background noise is thus effectively eliminated. Compared to the integrated microphone of a laptop, the sound quality should increase significantly.

The range of webcams has increased significantly in the course of the pandemic and the associated spread of working in the home office. There are now also some very high-resolution models on the market. For example, the Sync V3 from Creative achieves a 2K resolution. However, the offered Full HD resolution of the Brio 300 and 305 should be quite sufficient for video conferencing.

Privacy after video conferencing

The two new Brio-300 series webcams are primarily intended for use in video conferencing. Logitech has therefore sought certification for Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and Zoom. However, the company also attaches great importance to the privacy of the users. Therefore, the Brio 300 and Brio 305 are equipped with a flap that can simply be pushed in front of the lens when the camera is not needed at the moment.

Nevertheless, central access to the camera’s configuration is possible, at least in the case of the Brio 305, which is intended for the corporate context. This ensures that companies can provide the devices with software updates centrally. Remote diagnostics in the event of camera malfunctions are also possible in this way. The corresponding tool is called Logitech Sync.

Sustainability as a corporate goal

The cameras, which are offered in graphite, off-white and rosé color variants, are particularly sustainable, according to Logitech. For example, the company relies in part on recycled plastic for them. The graphite variant has a share of 62 percent, while the other two versions have 48 percent. The paper packaging is made of wood sourced from FSC-certified forests.

Brio 300 and 305: pricing and availability

Both cameras are available now both online and in brick-and-mortar stores. The called price in both cases is 79.99 euros.
