Lifesize, a division of Logitech, is a high definition video collaboration provider for SMBs as well as large enterprises. With a goal to deliver a “truly connected” experience, the company enables anyone from anywhere to connect with any device or from any conference room through its room video systems and either an on-premise or cloud infrastructure model.

“The demand for video communication in business is skyrocketing, driven primarily by free, consumer-focused applications,” says Craig Malloy, founder and chief executive officer of Lifesize. “As a result, users now expect to have the same simple experience in the office, connected across laptops and mobile devices. Lifesize delivers a way to completely, cost effectively, and efficiently enable every person in your company with the highest quality video collaboration. We are able to do this because we have spent the last 11 years building an innovative product portfolio with all of the pieces necessary for this vision to come to life.”
