Today at Citrix Synergy Berlin, Logitech announced a collaboration with Avistar, Citrix and HP to bring high-definition (HD) video communications to virtual desktops for the first time. At the event, Logitech will preview its new Logitech® B990 HD Webcam, which will feature built-in H.264 technology for onboard encoding. Compatible with the Avistar C3 Integrator™ desktop videoconferencing application, the Logitech B990 HD Webcam helps remove the burden of video processing from thin clients and enable HD 720p video conferencing in session-based and VDI desktops. The Logitech B990 HD Webcam virtual desktop communications capabilities will be demonstrated by Avistar and HP at Citrix Synergy, Oct. 6 through Oct. 8, in Avistar booth No. 516 and HP booth No. 202.
Enterprises are increasingly moving from traditional desktop environments to virtual desktops that run inside a server in the data center, thus enabling full desktop productivity with the security and efficiency of centralized management.
