Pandemic has transformed the world of work dramatically, shifting towards a more hybrid model. This shift has given rise to a new challenge – ensuring equal participation and inclusivity for both remote and in-office employees in meetings. To address this, launched the Sight AI Camera, aiming to solve the disparity between hybrid teams.

Before the Sight AI Camera, options for video conferencing from Logitech were plenty including the Rally Bar and Rally Bar Mini. While these devices served their purpose for video meetings, the experience for remote employees was somewhat lacking, often leading to a sense of exclusion. Around 43% of remote employees reported not feeling included in hybrid meetings, signifying a pressing issue in the hybrid work landscape, according to the Work Trend Index Annual Report.

The Sight AI Camera has been specifically designed to tackle this issue. It works in conjunction with the Rally Bar or Rally Bar Mini to capture the best perspective of meeting participants and track conversations as they move around the conference room. The goal is to provide remote workers with an “at the table” experience, thereby enhancing their participation and engagement in meetings
