LifeSize introduces touch screen phone for HD video conferencing

By Telecom Lead Team: LifeSize, a division of Logitech,
has expanded the LifeSize Phone family with the launch of its first touch
screen conference phone optimized for HD video conferencing.


The phone features touch-based navigation and directory
dialing, as well as control of data sharing and cameras, all with a
streamlined, video-optimized user interface (UI).


The company said that LifeSize is simplifying video
conferencing usage and reducing the IT burden of video system management by
creating an improved user experience with advanced collaboration tools and
removing the complexity of remote-control dialing.


Our goal with the second generation LifeSize Phone was
to design a product so simple to use, anyone could walk into a conference room
and be instantly engaged in a productive meeting over video. By making the act
of video calling instinctive while also taking advantage of more advanced
collaboration features, we’re helping drive mass adoption of video calling
throughout the enterprise,” said Michael Helmbrecht, vice president and general
manager, video solutions for LifeSize.


The phone elevates the overall user experience for audio
and video conferencing by making it simple to use and easy to navigate,
ultimately driving broader adoption and accessibility.


With this launch, the company said that it solved the
complexities of video-conferencing in most video-enabled organizations by
designing a conference phone for its video conferencing systems with
exceptional audio quality that virtually anyone can use, no matter their
previous video knowledge or skill level.


 LifeSize Phone is globally available today with
the LifeSize Room 220 HD video conferencing system.


Last month, LifeSize
unveiled its LifeSize UVC Platform, an integrated and virtualized software
solution for HD video conferencing infrastructure.


The LifeSize UVC Platform integrates the capabilities of
multiple single-purpose infrastructure products and makes them instantly
available from one interface with one login account.
