Logitech’s award-winning products for 2011 include:
Honoree in Integrated Home Systems: Logitech Keyboard Controller for Google TV
The Logitech Keyboard Controller for Google TV, which comes with the Logitech Revue™ with Google TV™, helps provide seamless control over the Google TV experience and home-entertainment devices such as your HDTV, DVR or AV system. Once Logitech Revue and Google TV are set up, you can use the Logitech Keyboard Controller to navigate and interact with the new world of content available on the biggest and best hi-def screen in the house – the TV screen.
The Logitech Keyboard Controller includes everything you need to control your Logitech Revue with Google TV and features a familiar keyboard layout so anyone can start searching without a learning curve. It includes a touch pad with scroll functionality for control in addition to back and home buttons for easy Web page navigation.
In addition to the familiar typing and mouse experience, Logitech provides buttons to control your TV, A/V receiver and DVR. These let you power on your TV, turn up the volume on your speakers or access your DVR content without needing to use an additional remote.
Honoree in Personal Electronics: Logitech TV Cam
The Logitech TV Cam for Google TV™ lets you make and receive high-definition video calls on your HDTV – no computer required. It connects easily with your Logitech Revue box using USB to deliver the crisp, clear images – thanks in part to Carl Zeiss® optics – and superior quality audio consumers have come to expect from Logitech webcams.
Designed for the living room experience, the TV Cam provides a wide-angle lens that captures a broad view of living room so your friends and family can relax, talk comfortably and enjoy a natural conversation. The TV Cam also includes two digital, directional microphones that help reduce noise and echoes in a living room environment and uses Logitech RightLight 2™ technology to adjust images in dim lighting situations so you look your best. And when you want to have a more personal experience, you can use the 5x digital zoom to get close and personal.
Together, the Logitech Revue, Logitech TV Cam and Vid HD software enable high-definition video calls of up to 720p. To make a video call, simply connect the Logitech TV Cam to your Logitech Revue box, select the pre-installed Logitech Vid HD app and then place a call to family or friends who are also using Vid. Vid is available as a free download for PC or Mac users.
Honoree in Computer Peripherals: Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750
The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard powers itself wherever there’s light, through its integrated solar panel — no power bricks or charging cables needed.
Logitech’s first solar keyboard can be powered by indoor light and stays charged for at least three months in total darkness with a full charge. Plus an integrated power-indicator light helps eliminate surprises.
The optional solar power app makes it easy to get at-a-glance information about battery levels, alerts you when you need more power, and even includes a lux meter.
And at only 1/3-inch thick, the sleek Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard looks good. With its rounded edges and thin profile, this stylish, streamlined keyboard is a joy to hold and behold.
Honoree in Computer Peripherals: Logitech HD Webcam C910
Setting a new standard in quality, the top-of-the-line Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 not only lets you record video in stunning HD 1080p and make video calls in fluid HD 720p, but it also features crystal-clear stereo audio with two mics – one on either side of the webcam lens.
And, at only 1-inch deep, the exceptionally thin C910 webcam adds a modern minimalist touch to your laptop or desktop computer setup.
Every new Logitech HD webcam features Logitech Fluid Crystal technology, enabling each video call and recording to provide crystal-clear images with smooth, fluid motion and rich, true-to-life colors. And with one-click HD-uploading to Facebook™ and YouTube®, the flagship Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 makes high-definition video calling, recording and sharing easy.
Honoree in Electronic Gaming: Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700
Optimized for MMO while still offering the precision needed for FPS, the Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 keeps you comfortable, in control and deep in your game. Its 13 precisely placed controls can be programmed to perform single actions or complex macros with a single click, but are out of the way when you don’t need them. The full-speed wireless connection (1000 reports per second) gives you gaming grade performance coupled with the freedom of wireless.
The G700 is designed with natural curves to better fit your hand — so you can keep playing comfortably for as long as you want. The quick-connect cable charges the mouse even while the mouse is still in use, and also data-over-cable capabilities for LAN-friendly connectivity.
Honoree in Electronic Gaming: Logitech Wireless Headset F540
Designed for console gamers, the Logitech Wireless Headset F540 lets you connect up to three devices – including both your PS3™ and Xbox 360® – and delivers wireless stereo audio and voice chat without cords or tangles. All the controls you need are right on the headset – including independent voice and game volume levels, microphone mute, and an input selector that lets you switch between any connected audio source without leaving the couch. For your comfort and convenience, the noise-isolating, over-the-ear design and adjustable padded headband give you an immersive experience and a comfortable fit.
The Logitech Wireless Headset F540 uses 40-mm laser-tuned drivers to deliver detailed stereo sound. And the noise-canceling microphone means you can chat and be heard clearly in your favorite PS3™ and Xbox 360® online games.
Honoree in Electronic Gaming: Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930
The Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 immerses you in 7.1 Dolby® surround sound, creating a detailed, positional soundfield that lets you hear your opponents before they see you. With gaming-grade wireless technology designed specifically for two-way, uncompressed audio streaming, you can focus on your game without being distracted by typical wireless lag or interference annoyances.
The G930 gaming headset comes fully equipped, with three programmable G-keys that put you in total command over music, voice morphing and chat clients. A memory-foam-lined headband fends off fatigue, while plush ear pads ease pressure points and seal out unwanted noise. The noise-canceling microphone keeps your voice loud and clear for coordinating with your team. And if you’re dedicated enough to drain the internal 10-hour battery in a single marathon session, the included charging base lets you easily recharge while you continue to use the headset.
