Logitech Launches First 4K HDR Webcam
The Brio webcam is the world's first to support 4K high dynamic range video capabilities.

(CCM) — Logitech has unveiled an ultra-high-end webcam which is the world's first to offer 4K video as well as high dynamic range (HDR) and Windows Hello support. The new device, called Brio, is equipped with "Logitech's RightLight 3" capabilities which, combined with HDR, are designed to enhance picture quality in poor lighting conditions. It also offers up to 5X digital zoom, Full HD (1920 x 1080) recording at 60 frames per second (fps), and Ultra HD 4K (4096 x 2160) recording at 30fps. Thanks to infrared capabilities and certification with Microsoft's Windows Hello facial recognition software, the Brio can also be used to sign on to a PC running Windows 10 simply by looking into the Brio's lens. The device offers multiple field-of-vision options, enabling users to pick an appropriate setting to minimize background visual clutter during video conversations, and omni-directional mics with noise cancellation to reduce background noise.

The Brio ships with a 90 degree field of view as standard, with 65 and 78 degree options available with a software download. An external shutter guarantees privacy when the camera is not in use. It also supports multiple connections types including USB 2.0 Type A and USB 3.0 Type A and C, although USB 3.0 is required when using 4K video capabilities. The Brio is available now, priced at $199.
