Avocor and Logitech introduce ALZ video conferencing solution

Collaboration display company Avocor has joined forces with Logitech to deliver the easy-to-use Zoom Rooms for Touch solution.

The Avocor ALZ systems, comprised of three sizes available in two performance options, promise “completely frictionless communication” to connect teams all over the world.

In response to customer demand for a simple-to-use, yet incredibly powerful Zoom Rooms for Touch solution that allows users to share and co-annotate across desktops, mobile and Zoom Rooms, the Avocor ALZ systems combine Logitech MeetUp with an Avocor display and Zoom-ready Avocor Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) Windows-10 Intel i7.

And unlike embedded audio and cameras that come inside some displays, the ALZ offers front-facing audio, through MeetUp, to enable clear speech. Logitech MeetUp features a 4K camera with an extra-wide FOV (Field of View) and motorised pan/tilt lens to provide 160 degrees of total room coverage without the fisheye distortion that plagues typical wide-angle cameras.

Wherever people sit or stand, RightSight auto-framing automatically moves the lens and zooms up to 5x to frame everyone in the room. 

The Avocor ALZ line includes two performance options, including: 65-, 75- and 86-inch value-priced IR options, as well as 65-, 75- and 86-inch InGlass premium options. Both the IR and InGlass options feature 4K resolution, superior inking and pixel-precise touch that most closely resembles writing on paper.

The screen is also anti-glare, so it can be added to virtually any room or space without concern of lighting impact and resistant to fingerprints. With natural, seamless whiteboarding that provides precision down to the pixel, Avocor’s displays are 4K at 60Hz, which means not only crystal-clear images but also low-to-no lag. For additional writing options, every ALZ is paired with a hard-tip stylus, which allows for smooth drawing, writing and easy idea-sharing between teams.

“Avocor shares Zoom and Logitech’s philosophy to make powerful collaboration frictionless. Logitech is also a legend in video conferencing, so we jumped at the chance to create a new approach to Zoom Rooms for Touch solutions with them. We have created six cost-effective and complete Zoom Rooms for Touch systems that help companies of every size and scale work and collaborate more efficiently, with zero compromise,” said Avocor CEO Scott Hix.

The Avocor ALZ includes a custom mount that secures Logitech MeetUp directly to the top of the display with just three screws. Because of the proprietary power/data cable between MeetUp and the OPS, the entire system runs off one wall outlet – no power strips required.

“Zoom Rooms represent a key part of Logitech’s go-to-market strategy in the video space. Teaming up with Avocor extends our capabilities into Zoom Rooms for Touch solutions with the integration of MeetUp product into the Avocor ALZ family,” said Scott Wharton, vice president and general manager, Logitech Video Collaboration. “Our combined solution provides customers a superior experience for video meetings and touch collaboration.”
