Logitech has come out with the first ever 4K webcam with HDR support called Brio, which is seemingly targeted for the mainstream and enterprise markets, as its previous webcams were.

The company has gleaned from its 20-year hardware experience and expertise and created its best webcam yet. It launches Feb. 7 for $199, which might come off as starkly alpine price point for those used to relatively cheap but decent webcams — but hold on. The high price comes with nifty and much-needed features.

Record 4K Webcam Feeds With Logitech's Brio

Firstly, Logitech has outfitted Brio with 4K recording that supports HDR, and secondly, the device comes packed with the company's RightLight features meant to greatly enhance recording in low-light situations.

Those who have trouble holding video conferences in dim environments will surely appreciate the addition of HDR, as it's meant to provide a better image quality and do away with typical lighting issues tied to webcam feeds.

Logitech Brio Features

The Brio pretty much looks like a regular webcam, replete with a glass and metal shell design. The device itself also features facial recognition via infrared technology on top of everything else. This means users can take advantage of Microsoft's windows Hello feature in Windows 10 to unlock a computer by using their face. The Brio also supports 5x digital zoom capacity, 60 fps Full HD recording, and 30 fps Ultra HD recording.

There is, however, a catch. To stream Ultra HD video, the device will need to be connected to a USB 3.0 port, which supports the bandwidth needed for processing the given resolution in real time. Additionally, customers need either a desktop or a laptop that's based on Intel's seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors.

The webcam also has the ability to alter the field view to three available viewing angles, making for some truly diverse and dynamic recording styles.

According to Logitech, the creation of Brio was propelled by the company's intent to introduce the "Tesla of webcams," which means, presumably, that the Brio perches atop the ranks of all webcams currently out in the market, and the device's full breadth of features certainly bolster that bold description.

"Logitech BRIO takes webcams to an entirely new level. It's truly an unparalleled webcam experience, whether you're using it for business video collaboration, streaming a live event, or recording professional-quality video in 4K," said Scott Wharton, Logitech Video Collaboration's general manager and VP.

With YouTube now able to support 4K streaming and HDR, the Brio is poised to become one of the first webcams to utilize what is expected to be a standard streaming resolution in the near future, possibly even nearer than we think.

The Brio has already managed to garner its share of accolades, being named an Innovation Award Honoree at the 2017 CES Innovation Awards.
