NASA’s Distance Learning Lifts Off With LifeSize
HD video communications leader LifeSize is helping America’s NASA collaborate.
In what way? The group, which leads all of the US’ space and advanced aerospace activities, says it’s only really been able to support extended forms of education and training since adopting the company’s high definition video collaboration platform.
This is especially true in the US Federal body’s California-based Jet Propulsion Lab. In that facility, managed in turn by the California Institute of Technology, no less than 5,000 NASA staff spread out over a huge campus of over 100 buildings are connecting using the company’s low-cost but high-quality technology.
But that’s not all: these Lab staff are now in turn remotely connected by video to other NASA colleagues, contractors and business partners right across the planet, as the body wanted technology that could enable more frequent face-to-face communication without the need for time-wasting travel (that’s the kind of ‘distance’ a space agency could do without!).
The result, say its managers, is just what a leading-edge technology and engineering group wants – increased collaboration, easier sharing of ideas and boosted employee participation.
LifeSize is the video conferencing arm of IT giant Logitech.
