Logitech expands videoconferencing services
Logitech is set to acquire LifeSize, a videoconferencing vendor, for a $405-million cash deal, reports Computing.co.uk.
"We expect this acquisition to enable Logitech to extend our leadership in video communication beyond the desktop," says Logitech president and chief executive Gerald Quindlen. "Together we can make life-like, HD-quality video communication as mainstream and seamless as a telephone, for meeting participants in the boardroom, at their office desk, in a remote-location meeting room, telecommuting from home or on the go with a laptop."
Logitech says it plans to keep the company intact and operating as a separate entity. Logitech hopes the purchase will expand all of its videoconferencing offerings.
