Evergreen, CO, June 2, 2010 - Wowza Media Systems®, the media server company, announced today that LifeSize Communications, a division of Logitech, has licensed the Wowza Media Server 2 software to support the delivery of streaming video via LifeSize Video Center.

Organizations are increasingly using video communications to share knowledge and communicate critical information. The unified streaming capabilities of Wowza Media Server 2 provide an effective solution to broadly extend the high definition video experience to desktop and mobile participants.

"Wowza shares our vision to make HD video communications accessible to anyone, anywhere," said Rafi Anuar, product manager, LifeSize Communications.
