A better way to video call
Webcams let you see and talk to your friends and family—wherever they are. But with most webcams, you need to wear a headset or you’ll get a distracting echo.
The echo explanation
You’re on a video call with your friend. You’re both using webcams with integrated microphones and typical computer speakers. Here’s where the trouble happens:
The RightSound™ fix
You use a webcam with RightSound technology. The software identifies the sound wave featuring your friend’s voice as it comes through the speakers. When your microphone picks it up, the software filters out the repeated wave so it doesn’t get sent back to your friend. And that means they don’t hear an echo.
Other webcams eliminate echo by muting your microphone when the person on the other end is speaking. It’s kind of like talking on a walkie-talkie—not a very natural way to have a chat. RightSound technology doesn’t mute your mic so you can both talk whenever you want. It makes your video calls just like talking to someone in the same room.

What makes a Logitech® webcam better?
Lighting up your video calls—in every situation
You probably make a video call in good lighting most of the time. When you do with a Logitech webcam—thanks to Fluid Crystal—your video will look smooth and sharp, rich and clear.
Not your average webcam
The quality of your video call depends in part on the quality of your webcam. Even if the lighting, the connection and the computers involved are ideal (and no one moves around much), any old webcam can make video calling a frustrating experience. And most of the time people use their webcams in less-than-perfect situations. Other webcams (for example, the one built into your laptop) try to adjust for poor lighting—but can produce choppy video, muted color and fuzzy images.
Real difference for the real world
Joy. Laughter. Tears. There’s nothing like seeing your loved ones face-to-face. To be there—with the people you really care about, the people you work with, the people that you need to look in the eye, even though they may be on the other side of the world.
