Austin, Texas, November 21, 2014

Lifesize, a division of Logitech (NASDAQ: LOGI) (SIX: LOGN), announced today that it has been named one of the industry’s leading tech innovators by CRN. The Tech Innovator Awards recognize the companies and products that have used innovation to advance technology, increase productivity, and reduce cost and complexity in ways that provide value to the channel. These awards guide solution providers toward today's biggest technology breakthroughs so they can incorporate them into advanced solutions for their customers. Lifesize Cloud took top honors in the Networking – Voice/Data/UC category. 

Each year, CRN honors the high-tech companies that have delivered outstanding innovation in hardware and software solutions over the past 12 months. CRN Test Center editors reviewed hundreds of products across 18 hardware and software categories to determine the winners and those worthy of honorable mention. 

Lifesize is the only company to deliver video conferencing that’s as easy, as lifelike, and as remarkable as meeting in person. Founded in 2003 and acquired by Logitech in 2009, Lifesize continues to reinvent the video conferencing industry – which is evident with the innovative Lifesize Cloud solution. Lifesize Cloud allows you to connect with whomever, whenever, wherever – whether it’s on a computer, tablet, or smartphone – Lifesize Cloud gives you the best connected experience.

“We’re honored that Lifesize Cloud was recognized with this prestigious award from the CRN Test Center,” said Craig Malloy, founder and CEO of Lifesize. “This accolade is a testament to Lifesize’s relentless focus on innovation and pushing the boundaries of what collaborative solutions are capable of accomplishing."

“Solution providers are facing tough challenges as the IT industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN.  “Being able to quickly and reliably identify the best new solutions in key technology categories is of great importance to them as they look for innovative ways to earn a competitive advantage. The winners and runners-up in the CRN Tech Innovator Awards represent the best and brightest products and solutions in today’s market, and are some of the most important for solution providers to keep an eye on in the coming year.”
