Logitech expands video/audio gear for meeting rooms

InfoWorld - Mon, 01/26/2015 - 08:02

Logitech today expanded its offerings in the videoconferencing/collaboration space with the launch of its ConferenceCam Connect device ($499.99). Combining an HD 1080p video camera with dual microphones and a speakerphone for 360-degree audio, the ConferenceCam Connect is aimed at small workgroup collaboration settings (up to six people). The device sits between the entry-level BCC950 unit ($249.99) and the upper-end ConferenceCam CC3000e ($999.99).

Logitech says the new hardware is aimed at smaller conference rooms known as “huddle rooms,” where groups of employees congregate and need to then connect to videoconferencing systems (it’s certified for Microsoft Lync but also works with other systems such as Cisco Jabber, WebEx, Skype, etc.).

North Carolina could be next in Google Fiber roll-out

InfoWorld - Mon, 01/26/2015 - 08:01

Two cities in North Carolina could be the first to benefit from a planned expansion of Google's fiber-optic Internet service.

The company is holding events in Raleigh and Durham on Wednesday and Thursday this week, apparently to announce selection of the cities as roll-out locations for the service, according to local TV station WRAL. Construction of the service could begin as early as April, the report said.

The two cities, which along with Chapel Hill make up an area known as Research Triangle, were among a preliminary list of 34 locations that Google said last February were in the running for its high-speed Internet connections. The company said it would begin working with the cities to explore deployment of the service and provide more details on its planned roll-out towards the end of 2014. However, to-date, no further announcements have been made.
