“We’ve obsessively worked toward solving the problems of providing high-quality audio and video collaboration in both meeting rooms and remote desktops, but there remains a gap in integrating non-digital content like whiteboards, or Post-its™ into virtual meetings,” said Scott Wharton, general manager and vice president, Logitech Video Collaboration.
The Logitech Scribe costs you $1,119 which includes all the setup equipment like mounting, power supply, and “category cables for deployment at scale”.
