LifeSize Communications has unveiled its expanded HD video conferencing product line. The company’s main product, LifeSize Room, is joined by three new products – LifeSize Express, LifeSize Team MP and LifeSize Conference. 

The LifeSize portfolio consists exclusively of HD video products. The range extends from simple point-to-point video conferencing systems to customer-specific systems with multiple screens and several HD cameras. 

“We facilitate highly reliable and true-to-life video conferences at an affordable price with our purely HD video-focussed product portfolio,” says Craig Malloy, CEO and founder of LifeSize Communications. “We are convinced that video conferencing systems will permanently change the way that people communicate, and we are proud to be able to introduce a revolutionary technology which allows people all over the world to achieve more, travel less and yet still be present at all times.” 

The new LifeSize Express product is a high resolution point-to-point video conferencing system. LifeSize Express, which is roughly the size of a WLAN router, offers HD quality telepresence but is priced in the lower segment. 

The HD video conferencing systems LifeSize Team MP and LifeSize Room are part of the middle price category, and unlike LifeSize Express can also establish multipoint connections. As with all HD video products from LifeSize, they provide 30 images per second with a screen resolution of 1280x720 pixels compressed to one megabit per second (Mbps) and maximum picture quality at low bandwidths. The LifeSize products support all standards and can be used with almost any video conferencing system built within the last seven years. 

The new HD video conferencing product portfolio is rounded off by LifeSize Conference. This product provides companies, systems integrators and AV consultants with an HD video infrastructure suitable for individually configuring a telepresence environment with multiple screens, up to three HD cameras and remote control. 

“With telepresence, the most important issue is to obtain an authentic reproduction of the conference parties. LifeSize Conference gives the impression that everyone is in the same room,” says Casey King, technical director at LifeSize.
