Logitech has worked with Microsoft during the development of many of these personal peripherals, which are expected to be certified through the premium Certified for Windows Vista Logo program prior to the consumer launch of Windows Vista
This week at the DigitalLife tradeshow, Logitech is for the first time publicly demonstrating its portfolio of new premium PC peripherals that can optimize one's experience with the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.
Logitech is one of Microsoft's premier hardware peripherals partner for marketing Windows Vista-based communications solutions. Logitech's premium webcams, headsets and microphones deliver crystal-clear communications in the next-generation PC environment. Also a featured hardware peripherals partner for marketing Windows Vista productivity solutions, Logitech offers mice and keyboards that provide one-touch access to Windows Vista efficiency features such as Windows Vista Flip 3D.
The new Logitech ChillStream(TM) controller for PC is the first of many Logitech products slated to be a Certified for Windows Vista - premium product. The gamepad, featuring an innovative built-in fan-based cooling system, requires no software driver on a PC running Windows Vista - it delivers a plug-and-play gaming experience.
"Our aim is to offer our customers easy access to the Windows Vista experience whether it's through devices that are plug and play, or by providing mice and keyboards with one-touch access to Windows Vista navigation features, or with communications products that make it easy for people to use Windows Vista to connect with friends and family," said Denis Pavillard, vice-president of product marketing for Logitech desktops and keyboards. "This fall, we've delivered an array of products that take advantage of Windows Vista and its breakthrough user experience - and we're excited to show them publicly for the first time at DigitalLife."
"Many of Logitech's new products expertly complement Windows Vista and its core value proposition, which is to offer a breakthrough user experience and enable people to feel confident in their ability to view, find, and organize information, and to control their computing experience," said Dave Wascha, director of partner marketing for Windows Vista at Microsoft Corp. "Logitech has been a leader in enhancing the digital experience for many years, and we're excited about how its new products will help our customers get the most out of Windows Vista."
The company will also showcase: QuickCam Ultra Vision webcam, Logitech Premium Notebook Headset, Logitech EasyCall Desktop, Logitech diNovo Edge keyboard, Logitech MX Revolution cordless laser mouse, Logitech VX Revolution cordless laser mouse for notebooks and Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 3200 Laser mouse-and-keyboard combination.
