Corporate use of video conferencing systems is on the rise. To widen its market niche, LifeSize enhanced its solution, with the highlight being support for HD content on mobile devices, such as the Apple iPhone and iPad.The latest release of the LifeSize Video Center solutions, which support video streaming, recording and auto-publishing functions, features a handful of improvements. With the new LifeSize system, mobile devices, especially tablets, can serve as end points for executive updates, business presentations, sales meetings, and training sessions. Employees use their Web browser to download video content to these devices via Wi-Fi or cellular network.
In addition to the mobile functionality, the LifeSize Video Center now includes an automatic adaptive video streaming feature where HD recordings are streamed at one of four speeds depending on how much bandwidth is available on a connection. Also the video conferencing system now works with Network Attached Storage systems, a capability that could make it easier for small and medium businesses to backup important video transmissions. Finally, LifeSize added an Application Programming Interface to its system, so third-parties or customers can integrate video conferencing features into applications, such as company intranets or Learning Management Systems. The video conferencing market has been maturing. LifeSize has been in a battle with Cisco and Polycom for market leadership. The latest LifeSize enhancements are designed to appeal to small and medium businesses interested in expanding their use of video conferencing technology.
