Europe’s Business Leaders Elect Lifesize HD as the Solution for Video Collaboration

Lifesize®, a division of Logitech (Nasdaq: LOGI) (SIX: LOGN), has been voted European CEO magazine’s Telepresence Provider of the Year 2010 by CEOs from across Europe. Lifesize, the pioneering HD video conferencing solutions provider, proved to be the preferred choice for organizations looking to extend the highest quality collaboration capabilities to anyone, anywhere.

The nominees included some of the industry’s major video conferencing and telepresence players, but Lifesize’s HD solutions — such as the LGExecutive, powered by Lifesize® and Lifesize® Bridge™ — helped secure the sought-after award. The February/March issue of European CEO featured coverage of the Lifesize victory and LGExecutive was distributed at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, at the end of January.

The accolade follows Telepresence and Videoconferencing Insight Newsletter naming Lifesize as High Definition Videoconferencing Company of the Year 2010.

Andreas Wienold, vice president of sales, EMEA, Lifesize, said, “In a period of financial uncertainty, telepresence and video conferencing facilities are now seen as a viable method of cutting travel costs without sacrificing quality communications. Naming Lifesize as telepresence provider of the year proves how much the business community values HD collaboration tools that enable genuine human interaction over any distance. Lifesize is proud to be awarded European CEO’s highly regarded prize and we remain committed to relentless innovation to make video collaboration better, easier to use and more affordable.”

Robert Moore, features editor at European CEO, said, “With CEOs more acutely aware of their bottom line than ever before, Lifesize moves from strength to strength in making the selection of which provider to choose a far easier one. It is because of this that CEOs across Europe voted Lifesize the overall Telepresence Provider of the Year.”
