Logitech Web Conferencing Camera User Guide

User documentation for how to use the Logitech Rally Web Conferencing Camera with applications such as Microsoft Teams, Webex, and Google Meet to host meeting that remote participants can attend.

Getting Started

  1. Power on the display in the room using the button panel and select HDMI as the source

  2. Plug the adapter into your computer to connect to the camera, display, and a power source

    1. If your computer does not have a port to plug the adapter into, you can plug the HDMI (for the display) and USB (for the camera) cables into your computer directly. We recommend also connecting your laptop to a power adapter since web conferencing can rapidly deplete your battery.

Secondary Display Setup


It is recommended that you set up your computer to treat the monitor or project in the room as an extended display, meaning you are not mirroring the image on your device. To set up the display in the room as an extended display follow these instructions based on your operating system:

Make sure your cables are connected properly to the new monitors, then press Windows logo key  + P to select a display option.

If you need more help, here's what to do:

  1. Select Start > Settings > System > Display. Your PC should automatically detect your monitors and show your desktop. If you don't see the monitors, select Detect.
