Audio and Video Recommendations

There are several options in regards to headsets and webcams that can be purchased for your Connect meetings, such as Logitech and Plantronics. Quality of audio and cost are directly related when purchasing headsets or microphones. We recommend that you purchase something in the $30 to $50 range. The FCPE recommends Logitech webcams for use with Connect Meeting. Many webcams have built-in microphones. Please check manufacturer specifications.
