Logitech releases 4K webcam with IR facial recognition, Windows Hello support

 

Logitech has released its new Logitech BRIO 4K Pro Webcam with support for Windows Hello and other secure infrared-based facial recognition applications.

According to a report by Tom’s Hardware, the 4K webcam’s infrared detection and compatibility with Windows Hello protects users against unauthorized logins and access to secure information. In addition, the device’s 13-megapixel sensor enables users to stream a 4K image.

The webcam is equipped with a second infrared LED and sensor, enabling users to combine it with the primary sensor and configured software to make the device Windows Hello certified so it can be used with the Microsoft security feature to login via facial recognition.

Windows Hello, a key biometric authentication feature of Windows 10, enables people to use their face, iris or fingerprint biometrics to unlock and gain access to Windows 10 devices.

“Microsoft is pleased that Logitech has chosen to bring enterprise-grade security with Windows Hello facial recognition to the BRIO webcam,” said Matt Perry, partner group program manager at Microsoft. “By qualifying BRIO with Windows Hello, Logitech is providing its consumer and enterprise customers with a Windows 10 login experience that is secure, password-free and seamless.”

Priced at US$199 (€239), the 4K Pro Webcam is now available from Logitech and will be coming to e- and retailers over the coming weeks.

Previously reported, Microsoft reported that there are as many as 100 Windows devices and accessories across all platforms starting from laptops, all-in-ones, 2-in-1s, tablets, phones to peripheral devices available to use with Windows Hello.
