Logitech has introduced Logitech Swytch, an enhancement to Logitech room solutions, including Microsoft Teams Rooms and Zoom Rooms, enabling users to join meetings for other video conferencing systems from your laptop. 

Using a single USB connection, users can switch control of the camera, audio devices and display in meeting rooms to a laptop. 

“Most room solutions are great and have made strides in becoming easier to use, but it’s often difficult to join meetings with any video service you want,” says Scott Wharton, vice president and general manager of Logitech Video Collaboration.

“For video to become ubiquitous, joining video calls with different platforms needs to become as easy as making a telephone call. With Swytch, we’re taking it a step beyond ‘making every room a meeting room’ and enabling a native experience in conference rooms that anyone can use and enjoy.”

Swytch, a compact, one-cable laptop link, enables users to use a laptop to run meetings with any video conferencing platform, webinar or streaming software. With Swytch, joining video services is seamless, especially if users are transitioning to modern platforms like Zoom or Teams from legacy services. 

Users should plug-in the Swytch USB connector to a laptop to quickly get high quality, native support of almost any external video meeting service, regardless of what the room standard is. 

Logitech Swytch will be available for purchase globally starting later this month and pricing starts at £899 and varies by country.
