RightSound technology. Sound right. Naturally.
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.
Neither option sound appealing? With Logitech RightSound™ technology, you can avoid both. Acoustic echo cancelation software means the whole family can gather around and have a more natural conversation—without passing around a headset.
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:
Your friend says something to you. His voice is captured by his microphone and sent to your speakers. But then your microphone picks up his voice from the speakers and sends it back to him as an echo—which can really ruin a conversation.
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.
