Valens joins the Logitech Collaboration Program by providing USB & power extension solutions that streamline Logitech conferencecam installations

HOD HASHARON, ISRAEL, April 13, 2022 – Valens Semiconductor (NYSE: VLN), a premier provider of high-speed connectivity solutions for the audio-video and automotive markets, today announced that it has collaborated with Logitech to develop a solution tailored to Logitech’s USB peripheral suite of products, that solves the challenge of extending USB cameras and power over a single category cable. This collaboration solves for installation challenges in the education segment as a result of the new hybrid setting (HyFlex) that accommodates sessions for both in-classroom and remote participants, as well as enhances corporate meeting and huddle rooms.

“Logitech is continuously raising the bar, providing the highest quality experience for its customers and we are looking forward to  deepening our business partnership and continuing to innovate together,” said Gabi Shriki, SVP and Head of Audio-Video at Valens. “Valens’ advanced, cost-effective solution is at the forefront of the education market’s rapid transformation from in-person to hybrid. We thrive on working with leading companies of the video conferencing and USB peripherals markets like Logitech.”

Valens’ HDBaseT connectivity technology provides Logitech customers and installers a simple, cost-effective way to extend Logitech cameras with the freedom to place USB devices anywhere in the room over a single, standard category cable. Valens’ semiconductor provides:

  • Professional-grade extension of USB and Power up to 100m/328’
  • High quality, zero latency multimedia distribution
  • Plug & play single-cable solution, no driver installation required

“There is a growing number of devices being deployed in classroom and conference room setups – including multiple displays, cameras, microphones, and speakers,” said Sudeep Trivedi, Head of Alliances and Go-To-Market at Logitech. “This makes convergence of high-quality multimedia critical for a streamlined, cost-effective installation, and it is exactly what Valens’ HDBaseT technology delivers. Feedback from customers has been fantastic, and with our partnership with Valens, they can expect even greater things to come.”

This offering is ideal for both new and retrofit projects, providing flexibility for USB peripheral placement and eliminating the need for a dedicated A/C outlet.
