Austin, Texas, novembre 7, 2012

Lifesize, a division of Logitech (NASDAQ: LOGI) (SIX: LOGN), today announced integration of its one-button streaming, recording and auto-publishing video solution Lifesize® UVC Video Center™ with the Blackboard Learn™ platform, a leading learning management system. Blackboard Learn serves thousands of higher education, K-12, professional, corporate and government organizations.

“We are pleased to work with Blackboard to help extend HD video conferencing technology to students of all ages,” said Michael Helmbrecht, vice president and general manager of video solutions for Lifesize. “The possibilities are truly endless through this integration: guest lecture series, video tutoring, live Q&A sessions, distance learning and more. Our goal is to provide enriching educational experiences to students and we believe our integration with Blackboard Learn better enables us to do so.”
