As companies like Google prepare to welcome at least part of their staff to the office, Logitech launches a whiteboard camera to help employees collaborate with their offsite colleagues. Dubbed Scribe, the company’s new gadget uses AI-enhanced software to make presenters transparent so that people watching the presentation can more easily see the whiteboard. It can also automatically detect post-it notes and change color markers.
Upon release, Scribe is working with Zoom Rooms, with support for Teams Rooms later this year. It can also serve as a plain webcam with “virtually” any video conferencing application, although using it that way would be a waste most of the time.
Scribe’s $ 1,200 price tag puts it in the top tier of other high-end whiteboard cameras like the Huddly Canvas. Each Scribe unit comes with a set of mounting components, allowing you to mount it to a wall, and all the cables you need to operate it. Scribe is available today in select markets.
