LogiTech MeetUp: A Video Collaboration Tool For Small Groups

Published:

As remote teams and co-working spaces gain popularity, the need for video collaboration platforms has increased. LogiTech has introduced MeetUp, an all-in-one conference camera designed for small meetings, providing a larger, clearer way to conduct video meetings away from tiny laptop screens.

Made For Small Spaces

Known for its high-quality video conferencing tools for larger spaces, LogiTech has introduced MeetUp, a smaller video camera with a 120° field of view, making it ideal for huddle rooms or small conference areas seating up to eight people. The compact design and lack of long cables, along with a velcro strip for a neat appearance, make it perfect for smaller spaces.

Plug-in and Present

Setting up this conference camera is easy. Simply take it out of the box, plug it into a USB port, and sign into your conferencing software, which includes compatibility with various applications such as Skype for Business, Microsoft Cortana®, Cisco Jabber™, BlueJeans, Broadsoft, LifeSize Cloud, Vidyo, and Zoom.

Best Features

Key features include the ability to capture everyone in the meeting without distortion, a wide field-of-view without unnatural-looking faces, maintenance of whiteboard writing legibility, a pan/tilt/5x zoom lens that improves presenter focus, and a 4K high-def sensor for exceptional clarity. The camera integrates with popular video conferencing applications, and includes Bluetooth® wireless technology, an RF remote control, Kensington security slot, and table and wall mount options.

Tech Specs

MeetUp’s black, rounded case fits any office decor and boasts technical specifications that highlight its advantages over other conference video cameras. The 4.1-by-15.75-by-3.35-inch (HWD) all-in-one video conference camera weighs just under two and a half pounds.

Another standout feature is the integrated audio with a custom-tuned speaker and three beamforming mics designed to work specifically with the acoustics of a small space, along with acoustic echo cancellation, voice activity detector, and microphone background noise suppression.

System Requirements

To use MeetUp, you will need Windows®7, Windows 8.1, or Windows, or macOS® 10.10 or higher for Mac users. Chrome OS™ Version 29.0.1547.70 and higher, along with a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 port for 4K video, are also required.

In the Box

A MeetUp conference camera comes with a wall mount and hardware, remote control, 16-foot USB cable, power supply, user information, and a two-year limited hardware warranty.


Important Extras

The Expansion Mic for MeetUp is recommended to extend the audio range from eight feet to 14 feet. A TV mount helps to configure it for different rooms. Additionally, the free mobile app, available on Google Play and iTunes, turns your mobile device (smartphone or tablet) into a remote control for operating the camera controls, adjusting volume, and muting/unmuting.

Overall Impressions

Due to its plug-and-play, compact, all-in-one design, this conference camera is portable and ideal for impromptu meetings. With crisp sound and sharp resolution, the LogiTech MeetUp is a great investment for startups and established businesses, despite being priced at between $899 and $949. You can purchase it on Amazon, New Egg, and other online retailers for a wide range of pricing options, depending on sales and promotions.
