Review: Logitech StreamCam Gives Viewers a Clear View of Virtual Meetings

Sharp images, crisp sound and easy setup make this camera great for live presentations.

When streaming live video, the right camera makes a difference. It’s second only to sufficient network bandwidth for ensuring that virtual meetings are not disrupted by choppy and frozen images.

Now that virtual meetings are common in businesses of all kinds, it’s important that organizations deploy the latest technology to keep meetings productive.

The Logitech StreamCam Plus is a powerful new camera that meets those needs and works well for collaborative meetings and remote calls.

Logitech Cameras Allow for Quick and Easy Setup

Ideal for broadcasting live content from its robust 2.1-megapixel optical sensor, the Logitech StreamCam Plus is great for webinars and videoconferencing.

The camera features an artificial intelligence capability that provides seamless face tracking, including auto-focus and exposure. When someone is giving a presentation, the speaker’s face will be clear and crisp throughout.

I tested this feature by using the StreamCam during team meetings and routine presentations with executives for three weeks, then reverting to a built-in notebook camera. My viewers let me know how much clearer and better I looked with the StreamCam.

The StreamCam’s versatile mounting options showcase presenters in the best positions and at the right angles. They’ll seem to be looking viewers in the eye, not above or below, while still being able to read the screen and any notes.

As great as these features are, the most impressive capability of the StreamCam is its quick setup. During a business trip, I needed to take an important meeting in an airport terminal, but I was three minutes late. Nonetheless, I was able to get the camera up and ready before the videoconferencing tool started the meeting.

Cameras are often unsung heroes at work and are nowadays essential to working on the go or from home. The Logitech StreamCam Plus is a testament to these principles.

Four Traits of an Effective Video Camera

A little-noticed aspect of video cameras is how many parts make up this important technology. With so many features to discuss, I’ve simplified the qualities of an effective video camera, like the Logitech StreamCam Plus, into four S’s: sound, size, sight and simplicity.

  • Sound: The StreamCam Plus offers outstanding image quality and pre-mium audio performance that drives bright and strong sound in any setting. I used the camera during a conference call at an airport without needing my headset; the sound quality was terrific.
  • Size: Measuring 3.1x5.4x5.4 inches and weighing less than 12 ounces, the Logitech StreamCam Plus is an excel-lent size — small enough to be portable, but large enough to be packed with capabilities and strong features.
  • Sight: With a resolution of 1920x1080 and an image clarity of 1080p, the StreamCam is amazing at displaying sharp and crisp images. It’s the camera’s best feature. Additionally, the StreamCam comes with advanced Logitech Capture software that lets users employ multiple cameras, text overlays and scene transitions capable of driving amazing and dynamic webinars.
  • Simplicity: The Logitech StreamCam is easy to use, connecting via a versatile and universal USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 cable that drives functionality.
