Logitech Launches $199 BRIO Webcam with 4K, HDR, Windows Hello Support

What would the Tesla of webcams look like? Exactly like thisآ—or that is what Logitech would have you believe. I imagine that the 4K recording is appealing enough alone, but their new webcam also packs in HDR and Windows Hello, for people who are too lazy for passwords. It will be interesting to see how much this guy sells, being that it is $199. Thanks for pointing this one out, cageymaru.

Logitech has paired 4K recording with HDR, and the company’s latest RightLight features to improve low-light situations. If you’re used to holding video calls in dimly lit rooms, then the addition of HDR should improve image quality and avoid some of the typical lighting issues associated with webcam feeds. While the Brio looks like a regular webcam with a glass and metal design, Logitech has also added infrared-based facial recognition. That means you can use the Windows Hello feature in Windows 10 to log into a PC with just your face, avoiding having to enter a password. Logitech is also supporting 5x zoom at 1080p and 60fps recording at the same resolution, and the ability to alter the field of view to three different angles.
