Lifesize Cloud Takes Video Conferencing To The Next Level
Lifesize has taken major strides to reinvent the video conferencing experience by launching Lifesize Cloud.
The cloud product will provide a combination of software, hardware and services to bring video collaboration effortlessly to any connected devices. This means that whether on a smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop, customers will be able to access video conferencing technology in a fast and cost-effective manner.
Lifesize Cloud is delivered as software-as-a-service, which eradicates the need for timely onsite implementation. Instead, this new offering from Lifesize – a division of Logitech – provides natural communication instantly or scheduled. Moreover, it is purpose-built for any end user, meaning that organisations of all sizes will be able to implement an affordable, simple and scalable video conferencing solution with little to no need for IT involvement.
Craig Malloy, founder and CEO of Lifesize, said: “The demand for video communication in business is skyrocketing, driven primarily by free, consumer-focused applications.
“As a result, users now expect to have the same simple experience in the office, connected across laptops and mobile devices. Lifesize delivers a way to completely, cost effectively and efficiently enable every person in your company with the highest quality video collaboration. We are able to do this because we have spent the last 11 years building an innovative product portfolio with all of the pieces necessary for this vision to come to life.”
Lifesize Cloud offers unlimited guest capability to connect with individuals both inside and outside of your organisation while Lifesize Icon, the room video system, works right out of the box; users need only connect to the network and log in with their credentials.
The ease of set-up, lower costs and higher quality of the product compared to its competitors is already receiving positive feedback from customers; Robb Szymik, IT and AV global system administrator at Plexus, asserted that Lifesize Cloud provides a “superior solution compared to other tools I have used in the past”.
With more companies supporting remote working or having a dispersed workforce in increasingly global markets and supply chains, the need to communicate effortlessly is greater than ever. Video conferencing is an integral part of maintaining strong communication lines and Roopam Jain, industry director of enterprise communications and collaboration for Frost & Sullivan, states that the company has “nailed this user need with the introduction of Lifesize Cloud, a bold departure from the complex and costly ways of implementing video”.
