Logitech Brio 4K Pro Review
Price – $199
The Logitech Brio 4K Pro is designed for a Beautiful 4K images capture with HDR, Great sound, Detachable cable for USB 3.0 or Type-C; 90-degree viewing angle; Windows The Logitech Brio 4K Pro Webcam takes clear, high-res photos and videos, but it isn’t built as well as Logitech’s prior webcams. It has a cable that measures 4.9 feet long and has a USB Type-A connector to link to your PC or laptop and a USB Type-C connection to attach to the camera. The Brio’s arm is made of a flimsy rubber material. Removing the arm also lets you leave the camera sitting flat on a shelf. But the most noticeable result of the change is just how easy it is to knock this thing over.
SOFTWARE AND INFRARED
The camera can support varying frame rates depending on which resolution it’s capturing (though that control is based on the software you’re using). The Brio uses the Logitech Camera Settings app to adjust image brightness, contrast, white balance and color intensity, as well as lets you pan and zoom. Additionally, it can switch the Brio’s 90-degree field of view to a more limited 78 or 65 degrees, for when you don’t want to show so much of your office in the background. There are preset backgrounds, Chromakey (green screen) for game streaming and the option to add any custom background you want. It can record 4K video at 30 frames per second, 1080p at 30 or 60 fps, and 720p at 30, 60 or 90 fps. In the Windows Camera app, a video recorded at 90 fps in 720p was far smoother than 4K video, even if it wasn’t as detailed. The Brio uses an infrared camera to support facial recognition to log in via Windows Hello, which works great no matter the lighting situation in your room. I used the Brio to successfully unlock a computer in both bright light and complete darkness.
