Logitech RightSight 2 Makes Hybrid Meetings More Equitable for Remote Participants
AI-powered software for Rally Bar and Rally Bar
Mini uses a unique dual-camera system to create more inclusive
Today, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ:LOGI) is creating more
equitable experiences for hybrid workers with RightSight 2 software
that now simultaneously presents both a close-up view of the
individual speaker and a view of the entire meeting room during
video calls. With RightSight 2 auto-framing technology, far-end
participants can follow the active speaker while also getting
situational context from the group, such as one person gesturing to
another or writing on a whiteboard.

As the workforce adapts to a long-term hybrid environment,
Logitech continues to advance its software intelligence to deliver
the immersive, inclusive experiences that remote participants would
have if they were physically in the room. RightSight 2 is
Logitech’s latest innovation in an ongoing goal to make meetings
more equitable now and in the future.
“Remote participants can often feel like second-class citizens
when they’re on video calls with in-office colleagues. They miss
important in-room interactions or may struggle to keep up with the
meeting flow,” said Scott Wharton, general manager and vice
president, Logitech Video Collaboration. “RightSight 2 is the
equalizer for remote participants so they can collaborate with
their conference room counterparts on equal footing regardless of
RightSight 2 combines audio and video intelligence to detect
people’s placement in the room and the location of their voices.
Speaker View is a new mode that uses the two-camera system in Rally
Bar and Rally Bar Mini to render a picture-in-picture view* of the
active speaker and the whole group. The active speaker is framed
using the main camera that pans and zooms smoothly as the speaker
changes, while the wide-angle AI Viewfinder frames the room,
ensuring remote participants can see and hear all meeting exchanges
clearly. IT admins have the flexibility to toggle between Speaker
View and Group View (RightSight’s original implementation of
auto-framing) to best suit their teams.
RightSight 2’s Speaker View is compatible with all of Logitech’s
major cloud video conferencing partners, giving IT teams assurance
that their Logitech video collaboration ecosystem will adapt to the
evolving needs of their hybrid workplace. The feature will work as
picture-in-picture mode with Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android and
Windows, and seamlessly integrates into Zoom Rooms multi-stream
technology—which shows each of the speaker and room streams in
separate, individual tiles.
