Logitech CEO on Google TV: "Watching TV will never be the same"

Logitech boss chimes in on its involvement

| HT & Movies News | Posted: May 20, 2010 6:31 pm

Logitech is one of the key partners in the Google TV platform that is due out in the form of HDTVs and devices this fall.

 

Logitech's role in the platform is to provide a Google TV companion box as well as accessories to enrich the whole experience of this new and improved web TV from your couch. As Junien Labrousse, Executive VP Products of Logitech recently explained in a video just uploaded to YouTube (below), Logitech will not only provide a companion box that leverages the famous and popular Harmony Remote technology, but included in the package will be a controller that is said to be optimized for the Google TV experience that combines a compact keyboard, remote control and touch pad.

 

 

In an effort to pull even more of your hard earned dollars, Logitech will also offer more products such as a HD camera which will allow you to talk with your friends from the comfort of your couch, said Labrousse. Also expect apps to hit soon that allow the ability to turn your smartphone into a Google TV controller. They are going all out here, that's for sure.

 

 

Further on, the big boss of Logitech, Jerry Quindlen provides an overview of what Logitech is doing. Quindlen says he is proud to be part of this new great open platform that adds the power of the web to the regular television viewing experience.

 

Google TV is due to hit shop shelves in a range of products this fall and we can't wait to get our hands on some of these goods for testing.
