Logitech and Carl Zeiss

Together. For better video calling.

Logitech released its first webcam in 1995 and has been a major force in the development of webcam technology since the inception of video communication over the internet.
In 2007, Carl Zeiss began an exclusive relationship with Logitech, the world's leading manufacturer of webcams, marking a significant step in the development of webcam optics.

Our latest collaboration is on Logitech TV Cam HD, where SkypeTM now comes to life on your TV.
Something amazing happens when the video calling experience moves into the living room and onto the TV. It’s like a window into your world has been opened up, and friends and family can feel like they’re right there with you, even when they’re not. The Logitech TV Cam HD now gives you the freedom to move around the room naturally while connecting with the people that matter most. Relationships are what you make of them. Make them richer, stronger, and more vibrant when you share everyday moments with the Logitech TV Cam HD.

A focus on the lens

Lens quality is the most important feature of a webcam. If your webcam's lens isn't good, your image quality won't be good either– no matter how many megapixels you've got.

A webcam lens captures the light that the sensor then transforms into the image you see. You need a high-quality lens to capture more light and produce the best images. Together with Carl Zeiss, Logitech created an advanced lens design to give you more clarity and less distortion.

An updated classic

With Logitech, the Carl Zeiss webcam lens is a new take on the Tessar lens design. While the original Tessar design was patented back in 1902, it's the most famous camera lens for a reason. It delivers sharp images in a compact, lightweight form - which also happens to make it perfect for webcams.

To bring you the best webcam images possible, Logitech and Carl Zeiss turned the classic four-element Tessar design into a five-element design. Two of the lenses in the stack are cemented together to focus the light onto the sensor with maximum detail and minimal distortion. You can see the difference in your images.
