Logitech unveils a blackboard camera that hides presenters
The new tool from Logitech, dubbed Scribe, uses enhanced AI software to make presenters transparent so people viewing the presentation can easily see the whiteboard.

She added: Logitech’s Scribe solution takes advantage of what people know how to do, which is to pick up a mark and draw on the whiteboard, and we are now able to raise the level of collaborative non-digital content for everyone to see in high definition, while being easy to use and share, thanks to its compatibility with the most popular cloud services.

Each Scribe unit comes with a set of mounting components, allowing you to mount it through the wall, and all the cables you need to set it up and operate.
The Scribe product is now available in select markets, starting at $ 1,199, and the camera is currently compatible with Microsoft Teams rooms via Windows and Zoom Rooms, with support for Zoom Appliances available after launch.
