Logitech BRIO vs C922

Looking to find the best products to buy so you can improve your streaming quality? Then you should consider purchasing high-definition webcams as part of your streaming setup!

And if you are looking for quality HD webcams to add value to your stream’s quality, Logitech currently offers some of the best products for you.

Logitech recently released two of the best webcam products in the market in 2022, with Logitech Brio and Logitech C922.

Both products got a lot to offer to compete against other similar products available today. In this article, we will give our review of these two products and give you our recommendations on which of the two is worth your money.

 

Main Differences

Both the BRIO and the C922 are at a very high level of quality, as both are from Logitech. The biggest difference between the two cameras is probably the fact that the BRIO can record up to 4K resolution and the C922 “only” 1080p. Also, the C922 has a fixed field of view, while the BRIO has a choice of three fields of view. Otherwise, there are hardly any differences worth mentioning between Logitech’s two webcams.

Installation

One of the key differences between the Logitech Brio and C922 lies with their respective USB types.

Brio uses the new and improved USB connector type, the USB 3.1, which provides better connection speed than that of USB 2.0, which is the main connection type for C922.

C922’s cable length is also shorter by more than two feet compared to Brio, as C922 only has a 5-feet long cable while Brio boasts a long 7.22-feet cable.

Both Brio and C922 feature multiple mounting options for their users in terms of mounting. You can use the adjustable clip of both cameras to attach them to your PC monitor or laptop.

However, C922 gives you more mount options than Brio, as the former includes a 1/4″-20 tripod mount upon purchase.

Both products bring plug-and-play features to the table and can be ready to use after installation. The firmware for both devices does not come with the product, however, and must be downloaded online.

Their firmware comes with regular updates to make sure that their respective features remain bug-free.

But for those looking to use both products for casual use only, the software does not bring that much to the table and is not as much of a necessary feature to have to download and install.

 

Video Quality

In the case of the product’s video quality, both Brio and C922 boast amazing video capture capabilities. However, Brio proves to be a better option between the two, quality-wise, as the product can record with video resolution of up to 4k Ultra high-definition.

Meanwhile, C922’s video recording quality can only go up to as much as 1080p high-definition at only 30 frames per second (FPS).

In terms of minimum performance, C922’s video quality can be changed to only 720p at 60fps, while Brio can be downgraded to 720p at 30 to 90fps.

C922 is only limited to changing the mentioned video quality, while BRIO is capable of alternating between different video qualities between 720p to 4K Ultra HD.

In terms of the cameras’ field of view, C922 can cover a wide 78-degree angle, which pairs well with its 1080p video recording resolution.

However, Brio also showcases its video recording versatility in this aspect as it features three FOV options for different recording resolution presets of the product.

Brio boasts interchangeable viewing angles of 60, 78, and 90 degrees, which you can mix and match with the different recording resolutions available on the said product to see which presets suit your preferences.

Both products also offer great low-light recording performances, which gives your video crisp imagery even with minimal room lighting.

They both also feature a 20-step auto-focus feature thanks to Carl Zeiss® glass optic lenses, but minor bugs on this feature from BRIO make C922 a better option if this is what you may be looking for in your webcam.

Sound Quality

Sound-wise, both products are decent enough to capture crisp audio from a range within the room as both products have two built-in omnidirectional microphones.

Coupled with auto-noise reduction features, both C922 and Brio can record clear audios, and none of the two stand out in this aspect.

When compared to other microphone devices, it would be best to buy a separate microphone instead of settling with these cameras’ microphone extensions.

Special Features

As said earlier, both Brio and C922 are great on their own, but their software programs can be used to allow user customization.

For C922, its software features settings are entirely focused on streaming and gaming. Meanwhile, Brio’s software settings are geared more towards professional video recording, which therefore makes the product more suitable for filmmakers or video bloggers to buy.

In terms of compatible programs, Logitech Brio has the advantage of being compatible with more programs than C922.

One of the programs that Brio can support that C922 cannot is the facial recognition program called Windows Hello due to the former’s infrared sensor feature. Other programs that are said to be greatly compatible with Brio are Zoom, Fuze, Skype, and Microsoft Teams.

C922, on the other hand, has the advantage on XSplit users as the said product offers a free subscription for the platform for as long as three months.

Both cameras, however, allow for background removal even without the use of the said software, making the said function entirely optional for users if this is what they are looking for in a webcam.

Both products’ software is compatible with Windows OS 7 or later, Mac 10.10 or later, and Android 5.0 or later.

 

Price

In terms of pricing, the Logitech C922 looks to be a clearer and more practical purchasing option than Brio.

With a $100 price difference, C922 is a better choice for those who are looking to buy PC products at a budget price. And especially for a product of the caliber of Logitech C922, such a product is one of the better options among other products within its price range.

 

Conclusion – Logitech BRIO vs C922

Despite the clear price difference, if you are someone who bases their purchase decisions on quality over the price, the Logitech Brio is a much solid product with the features and recording and image quality that it brings to the table.

However, most consumers heavily rely on the budget aspect when it comes to their purchase decisions.

What Brio brings to the table is versatility in terms of professional recording, with emphasis on professionalism.

However, if you are starting on streaming, investing more in upgrading your PC setup is much more important than getting your face cam crisp and clear to your viewers.

Because of that, the Logitech C922 is the perfect starter webcam for streamers out there because of how good of a quality its video capture is for its price range.
