LifeSize Evangelist Sheds Light On New Icon Series And Smart Video

Lifesize - Video Conferencing

More details are starting to emerge about the revolutionary new Icon easy-to-use video solution from LifeSize.

A guiding concept for the system’s designers is, according to LifeSize video evangelist, Simon Dudley, “smart video”. Underlying that adjective, he says, in just the same way we’ve embraced smartphones into everyday life because of their great simplicity and ease of use, is the need for video to be just as intuitive.

The video conferencing industry has been too slow to get that need, he believes, with equipment still too hard to launch or use intuitively. “The problem is, it’s not ‘smart video’,” he warns. “Sadly, you have to be the smart one, not the video system.”

To be fully embraced by businesses and individuals, he says, the industry needs to reform the way it develops its solutions – like including address books to save having to input long strings of digits to find the right IP address for a call, or a calendar function to tell colleagues when the video room is booked. It is features like this that are in LifeSize’s new Icon approach.
