Meet Logitech BRIO, The World’s First HDR and UHD Webcam

I can’t remember the last time I had to turn on an external webcam. These day, most all-in-one PCs already had a built-in webcam which begs the question: is there still a place of external webcams? Perhaps, no, but that’s until Logitech BRIO comes along. How so? Because it records and streams in freaking 4K. And if that’s not enough, it even has support for Logitech RighLight 3 with HDR and that, btw, is also the industry first for a webcam. But how long before in-built all-in-one PC catches up, is anyone’s guess. Then again, if you are a pro YouTuber, or making multi-dollar deals, you wouldn’t want to live stream or video conference with in-built webcam. You probably would want to be pro with your gear too, and this is where BRIO comes in. Continue reading Meet Logitech BRIO, The World’s First HDR and UHD Webcam
