Logitech collaborates with Microsoft's Skype to create the Logitech SmartDock which is designed to make AV business meetings easier. The new Logitech SmartDock works with Skype for Business along with other Logitech devices such as the Logitech Conference Cameras to provide an easy-to-use console for video conference calls. The Logitech SmartDock is ideal for any meeting space from tiny rooms to huge conference rooms.

The Logitech SmartDock has HDMI input and output, three USB 3.1 ports and a gigabit Ethernet port to cover all connectivity options available today. The Logitech SmartDock also has a power-saving feature wherein a sensor detects if the meeting space is occupied or empty. When empty, the SmartDock automatically shuts off display output connected to it. The Logitech SmartDock can share content with resolutions of up to 1080p at 60 fps.
