Former client SightSpeed was acquired about 18 months ago by Logitech. Logitech has since also acquired Lifesize and between the two, plus their webcams, have assembled a small arsenal in the video communications space. Plus in both Scott Lomond (ex COO at SightSpeed) and in Matt Collier from Lifesize they have two very professional leaders inside the company now guiding their video communications efforts.
I missed this post on the Logitech blog but the rumors about Skype and multiparty video made me want to check out what was happening with SightSpeed. The reports about Skype now being about to offer more than one to one video will accomplish one thing. It will drive the use of video as a communications tool to new heights. Already 42 percent of all Skype calls are video. Well, SightSpeed has been in the multiparty video space for as long as I can remember, and their SightSpeed for Business program has offered a low priced option that, like ooVoo, really works but SightSpeed was there first.
