In the past 12 months, Logitech has continued to deliver innovations in categories such as mice, keyboards, webcams and PC speakers. The Darkfield Laser Tracking mouse and 360-degree sound PC speakers are two examples.
As part of the company’s video strategy, Logitech acquired high-definition video-conferencing technology provider LifeSize Communications for US$405 million.
It also expects to deliver high-definition video communication to people anytime, anywhere, whether they are in a conference room, in their office, at home or on the go.
Developing products for open ecosystems is also in the pipeline for Logitech.
