Logitech just introduced the Logic Dock, a $399 speaker dock for the PC that will make remote work a lot more efficient.
They might have missed an opportunity to call this one a Logi Deck, but the specs make a lot of sense in the context of a hybrid workforce.
First of all, the dock is a giant speaker designed for meetings, with controls that let you quickly mute or disable video on the most popular services like Teams or Zoom, and a built-in speakerphone using 6 beamforming microphones with noise cancellation.
Then, it lets you connect up to two monitors, a laptop and five USB devices, while charging that laptop.
“When the pandemic hit, we spent an incredible amount of time with our end users to understand their needs and pain points in a work-from-home world. The result was Logi Dock,” said one Logitech rep.
The Logi Dock might be a bit pricey compared to most consumer gadgets but, for office acquisitions, its spec sheet looks like a winner.
It also integrates with calendars via Logitech’s Logi Tune software, lighting up when a meeting is about to start.
It’s fitted with two USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 ports, two USB-A 3.0 ports on the back, one on the side, USB-C upstream, a HDMI port, a Bluetooth pairing button and a Kensigton lock slot.
It will ship this December.
