Logitech Purchases Mirial

Logitech International announced the acquisition of Mirial, a leading provider of video conferencing software for PCs, Macs, Smart Phones, and tablets. Based in Milan, Italy, Mirial supports a wide range of Internetwork Operating Systems (iOS) and Android devices, including the iPhone 4, 3GS and iPad 2, and myTouch 4G—to name a few. Mirial will become part of Logitch’s LifeSize division, giving the company a strong leadership position while extending open, video conferencing solutions to users at the same time.

Logitch president and chief executive officer Gerald P. Quidlen said, “This acquisition is a significant step forward in our ongoing efforts to make video communication as ubiquitous as voice-only calls are today.”

The acquisition of Mirial also gives LifeSize the ability to offer a much wider range of video conferencing products and solutions, including conference room endpoints and infrastructure for desktops, tablets, and mobile video devices and software.

In today’s economy, companies and enterprises expect their video conferencing software to work on multiple platforms, giving their employees the ability to attend video conferences from remote locations.

With shipments of tablets expected to increase to more than 49 million in 2015, support for video conferencing on these devices is in high demand for business and enterprises seeking remote conferencing capabilities on multiple devices.

Mirial products are expected to become immediately available through LifeSize, and will soon be integrated into LifeSize products and services at the same time. These new products will give customers the ability to enhance their video calling capabilities significantly.
