LifeSize UVC Named ‘AV Innovation Of The Year’
Prestigious industry publication AV News has picked a set of winners for its 2013 Awards that it says have made the audio-visual industry a better place in the last 12 months.
And high on the list of its winners is LifeSize, which scooped the Innovation of the Year prize for its distinctive UVC Platform, beating off stiff competition.
Judges noted the product’s ability to integrate the capabilities of multiple single-purpose infrastructure products to make them available from one interface with one login account.
They also agreed with the positioning of its designers: that the system, introduced in 2012, is the AV industry’s first fully integrated virtualised software platform for HD video collaboration – freeing buyers from the need to invest heavily in single purpose, fixed hardware configurations. That means that where previously IT teams would have had to deploy expensive and difficult to implement hardware, they now have a much more cost-effective option.
The award also seems to validate the vision behind the whole UVC approach: to fundamentally change the way businesses deploy video infrastructure by consolidating multiple applications on a single, virtualised interface.
