“We looked at many options from lower-end to higher-end alternatives. The reason we chose Logitech equipment was due to our confidence in their quality and reliability plus the performance, ease of use and price competitiveness of their solutions.”

Jeff Ormandy
eConferencing Manager, University of Otago


The University set out to find a video conferencing solution for staff and students that’s reliable, user-friendly, and affordable. When evaluating various options, some fell short based on complex setup and/or poor audio performance to the point of being unusable, especially with larger groups.


The University chose Meetup for huddle rooms, Logitech Group for slightly larger spaces, and Group with expansion mics for their boardrooms. Key selection criteria included audio quality, plug-and-play simplicity, Mac/PC compatibility, price, and flexibility to scale the solution to the situation.


Logitech solutions are being used for all types of video conferencing, including informal sync-ups, intercampus and external meetings, distance teaching, PhD oral exams, interviews, and seminars—all with outstanding results. Users especially appreciate the ease of use and high performance quality.
