Samsung and Logitech Announce Strategic Partnership

As people around the world increasingly demand convenient and efficient collaboration technology, the time has come for major industry players to combine their expertise and create solutions that allow users to get the best experience, no matter where they are.

The video conferencing market is set to reach a revenue of $50 billion (USD) by 2026, from having only reached $14 billion in 2019. This dramatic acceleration in the market is due to the current global climate, which has shifted the way businesses behave and operate. As such, video conferencing has quickly become an important platform for communicating and ensuring business continuity. In fact, global weekly downloads of business apps surged from 33.7 million in early October 2019 to 80 million in mid-April 2020. Video conferencing app downloads have also increased from five million a week to 50 million in the same period.
As a leader in visual display, Samsung understands the demands of the new video landscape. To provide businesses and employees with the tools they need to work effectively from any location, it has partnered with Logitech, a market leader in video and personal collaboration solutions. This partnership brings together the industry's most comprehensive display lineup including digital signages and desktop monitors, with Logitech's wide variety of video conferencing solutions for both meeting rooms and personal desks.

Samsung's displays can turn any space - in-office or at home - into a productive workstation. Samsung monitors are available in a wide range of sizes, resolutions and screen types, from ultra-wide curve to traditional flat screens, to offer users the perfect fit. When paired with Logitech's USB-compatible conference cams such as MeetUp and Rally, and webcams such as Brio, C930e and C925e, any location can be transformed into an integrated workspace, saving users' valuable time while still providing powerful functionality.

"Globally, there is a growing need for enhanced collaboration solutions that can enable businesses to maintain continuity in the current landscape," said Paul Kim, Vice President of Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. "We believe our partnership with Logitech, bringing together its dynamic video conferencing portfolio with Samsung's unmatched visual display technology, can play a major role in shaping the future of work and we're excited for what is to come."

So no different than Toshiba, Hitachi, Sony, IBM o f*ck than most who want to stay in business. So nothing new here.

What display chip do you think you would find in a old none SONY VCR\DVD player, guess what it probably be a SONY chip.

but if you don't ever need it ... no worries? right?
personal experience, the items i never needed to RMA a single thing, outlived their warranty 100% of the time and are still in working condition at my home or the home of the person i sold them, are from Logitech.
i even have a perfect working condition ISA interface card and and the Scanman 256 that did go with

not a fan of Samsung ... but that's only for their phone division (and headphone .... what happened with AKG is a bit sad ... )

Are Samsung's products now going to fail on schedule, every 1,5 years too?

What happened?

Samsung is one of those companies I've always liked, but have never really bought any of their products. AKG, on the other hand, is a favored choice for headphones.

Ahh, this must be the same "partnership" which many other companies have grown to regret. Especially when Samsung starts releasing products with the same or similar design, but the same old junk electronics inside.

i hate Samsung phone just for the same reason i hate Apple phone .... overpriced and nothing to justify beyond brand loyalty, AKG ... well it's not really AKG anymore Samsung made sure of that just after acquiring them .... just like Beats are not Beats anymore, for screen, SSD, RAM anything but their phone or headphone (even if they brand them AKG) "nope nope never"

now i could look at the UE brand that got acquired by Logitech, the same way, yet ... since acquisition their price didn't change (i.e.: no overpricing for no reason) nor did i see any news about the original brand getting their staff dropped

yeah .... the G700s is a stain ... but one stain, i never bought one but every single other device i got from them did what i mentioned above (what was the other one? )

either i am extremely lucky with Logi or i had the worst of luck with the other brands .... mainly with Razer, that one was a fail fest .... for anything bought after 2005 from them

Thanks for the elaboration, GreiverBlade. Sad when a special brand dies. That's still fresh on my mind re Roccat. Not sure how special they actually were since I'm still rocking a decade+ Logitech (an MX500 flavor), but Turtle Beach's acquisition surely isn't going to help anything.
