Logitech has announced the SmartDock, its new videoconferencing device built for Skype for Business. Built as a collaboration with Microsoft, the Logitech SmartDock is meant to provide a quick and easy way for companies to connect for meetings via video calls.

From Logitech:

With Logitech SmartDock, people can start meetings on time with one-touch join, then instantly project to the display in the room and share to remote participants via their Skype for Business clients on a smartphone or laptop. The Skype Room System also includes the ability to place or join an audio-only call.

Logitech says that the SmartDock also sports both HDMI in and out, three USB 3.1 ports and a gigabit ethernet port. The unit also packs a motion-detecting sensor that allows it to automatically activate when there's motion in the room, but turn off when the room empties.
