  • Glare or Low-light automatic adjustments? Check!
  • Automatic Login to the computer with Microsoft Hello and other software? Check!
  • Compatibility with video conferencing applications other than Skype, such as Cisco-certified applications or BlueJeans, BroadSoft, Vidyo and Zoom? Check!
  • Ultra High-Definition (4K) video conferencing? Check!

Update (27th March 2017 2200hrs) We asked Logitech more details about the 4K capabilities. Check out the quotes below.

We asked if a consumer is to plug in the Brio to a USB 2.0, can they still record at 4K resolution? What differences can be expected, plugging into a USB 3 vs USB 2 ports?

Logitech’s reply;

For 4K video, you’ll require

  • A PC running Windows 8 or higher
    • For Windows 7 users, BRIO will only work as a USB 2.0 device and is limited to 1080p.
  • 4K Display
    • Please take a look at the display specifications on how to achieve a resolution of 3840×2160 (UHD) at 60Hz.
      • For most TVs you can do this with HDMI (sometimes only 1 port on the TV will support 4K)
        • You may see less lag when using “Game Mode” usually under picture settings.
        • You may have to adjust the color temperature of the TV in case the colors are too “cool” (blue tint) or “warm” (red tint)
      • For many desktop monitors, this can only be achieved with the DisplayPort connection, and may also require a driver to be installed on the PC.
      • Please ensure any cables/adapters you use are 4K capable.
