Enterprise video conferencing and collaboration solution provider Pexip has formed a partnership with Logitech to deliver secure video conferencing for meeting rooms.

Pexip will natively integrate with Logitech's new portfolio of video conferencing solutions to provide a consistent end-to-end user experience from any location.

“We are thrilled to partner with Logitech to bring the Pexip meeting room experience to market. With its new Rally Bar and Rally Bar Mini, as well as Logitech RoomMate compute appliance.

Logitech has created smart, high-quality video room hardware that enables us, for the first time ever, to bring our AI and video stack to meeting rooms of all sizes for a fully native Pexip experience. Logitech's design and engineering philosophy is a perfect complement to Pexip's, and together, we're excited to help teams collaborate smarter, whether working from the office or at home,” says Pexip co-founder and CTO Giles Chamberlin.

With One-Touch Join, users can join Pexip Meetings from a Pexip Room, the Pexip app on a mobile device or laptop, or through any web browser that supports WebRTC.

The Pexip Room experience is secure by design, so users don't have to enter a pin number or remember to lock the room.

It's also built with interoperability at the core so users can join any meeting they are invited to, even those hosted on different platforms.

Everyone keeps their familiar workflows, regardless of how they join.

Organisations can use their existing technologies with no need to rip-and-replace, while outfitting new conference and huddle rooms with flexible, interoperable Pexip Meetings.

The Pexip Room software will be available on Logitech's video bars, Rally Bar and Rally Bar Mini, as well as Logitech RoomMate which all use the Logitech Tap controller as the user input device.

Pexip Room software will be available in Q1 2021, and to start, it will include One-Touch Join for Pexip Meetings, with additional functionality coming soon.

“Our customers are demanding high-quality, open, interoperable solutions that can be deployed at scale in the hybrid workplace. We are very excited to partner with Pexip to combine the Logitech Rally Bar and next generation portfolio of products with Pexip Meetings to video enable every meeting space easily and cost-effectively," says Logitech alliances and go-to-market head Sudeep Trivedi.

Pexip CCO Tom-Erik Lia adds, “Pexip breaks down collaboration barriers so everyone can meet, and the Pexip Room experience is an extension of this philosophy. In a time when human connection matters more than ever, Pexip is helping everyone be seen, heard, and included, regardless of whether they're working from home or transitioning back to the office.
