Logitech has picked up SightSpeed, a maker of cross-platform video chat and calling software. This acquisition makes perfect sense since Logitech themselves are knee deep in video cameras as well as a whole host of other peripherals for computers. Below is more information on SightSpeed for your perusal.
SightSpeed’s video communications solution is based on session initiation protocol (SIP) and offers 30 frame-per-second video and an integrated instant messaging service. SightSpeed supports 640 x 480 video windows at any speeds above 1.5 Mbps, multiparty conference calls and in-call file sharing. A free version is available and pricing for the SightSpeed Plus for consumers is $9.95 per month or $99.95 per year. Pricing for the more full-featured Business edition starts at $19.95 per user per month or $189.95 per year.
This acquisition is said to close next month once Logitech hands over $30 million in cold, hard cash to SightSpeed.
