I bought the Logitech Brio to upgrade from my Logitech c910. Yeah it’s an older webcamera that shot video in 1080p. The Logitech Brio has the ability to shoot up to 4K. However this isn’t available yet as Logitech hasn’t released their own software to do so. So you have to use third party software to record or broadcast in 4K. I captured this video using the Logitech Webcam Software provided from the Logitech c910. It’s not 100% optimized for the Logitech Brio. So looks like I’m stuck for now with a camera that has great hardware, but software is extremely lacking. Hopefully in the coming months these technicalities will be fixed and I’ll have a camera that fully offers what I paid for.
The Logitech Broadcaster is a great webcamera for Apple fanatics. If you have an iPhone, iPad, or Mac you’ll be able to use this webcamera over WiFi.The quality of both the video and audio are surprisingly great. The video will have hiccups at times when the connection to the WiFi is poor. Logitech says that you have to be in a range of 50ft from the router for the camera to work. I’d also add in that if you’ve got walls and other items blocking the signal you’ll need to be even closer. That’s the biggest problem with this camera. Beyond that it truly works like a charm. Check out all of the videos below to see it in action.
FREMONT, Calif. – June 8, 2011 – So you can browse comfortably – right from your lap – today Logitech unveiled the Logitech Touch Lapdesk N600, featuring a large touchpad that makes it easier than ever to point, scroll and swipe your way through the Web.
“We’ve seen people using everything from pillows to pets to shield their laps from the heat their laptops generate, ” said Denis Pavillard, vice president of product marketing for laptop accessories. “Our lapdesks are much more effective and, with the addition of a multi-touch touchpad, you’ll get the added capability to more easily move through your favorite content without attaching additional peripherals.”
The Logitech Touch Lapdesk N600 features a 5-inch, retractable touchpad with multi-touch navigation. You can move the pointer with one finger, scroll using two, and swipe through pages or pictures with three.
The multi-layer, heat-shielding design of the lapdesk protects you from laptop heat so you can browse in cool comfort, and the anti-slip surface helps keep your laptop in place. To get started, you just plug the tiny Logitech Unifying receiver into the USB port and start navigating. For your convenience, Logitech’s newest lapdesk offers up to six months of battery life.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Touch Lapdesk N600 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in June, for a suggested retail price of $69.99.

This was a hidden gem demo at Comic Con 2010. I believe it was tucked away at the Intel booth.
