Logitech Releases Keyboard and Camera Combo for Jabber Messenger
All those enterprises that use Jabber can better communicate via voice and video
Logitech may have gotten burned for betting on videconferencing, but while it has mostly stopped making specialized software for such things, it isn't about to stop tailoring normal peripherals for the job.Indeed, the Swiss peripheral maker has revealed the Logitech UC Solution for Cisco 725-Cl, which consists of a keyboard, mouse and the Logitech C920-C webcam.
The keyboard uses the buttons and LED display of Cisco's VoIP phones (voicemail button, video mute, microphone mute, call hold, answer, volume control). It also even matches the color.
It is curious that Logitech included a mouse in the $270 / 270 Euro package (the camera sells separately for $110 / 110 Euro), but not speakers or headphones.
Still, for those that feel they might want to buy the bundle even though it is arguably incomplete, the video above shows a demo of the special keys.
