Interoperability was a major focus for Lifesize at this year’s ISE. Presented under the tagline ‘Collaboration Without Complication’, the company highlighted a number of integrations with industry solutions.
Seamless Skype for Business interoperability was one example. Lifesize offers simplified cross-platform audio, video and web conferencing, and extends the Skype for Business environment to the conference room by making it easy to pair with award-winning Lifesize HD camera and phone systems, the company says.
In another recent advance, Lifesize chat integrations allow users to start meetings straight from HipChat or Slack and continue conversations over HD-quality video. Once enabled, the user can type ‘/lifesize’ to display a link that can be shared to join a virtual meeting. Guests can attend for free, so those without Lifesize accounts can also enter the conversation.
In September 2017, Lifesize reported a 110% increase in its customer base over the previous 12 months. The company has credited this growth to a “commitment to drive relentless innovation”, which it says is exemplified by the newly rearchitected Lifesize app. This new version of the company’s cloud-based collaboration platform delivers “exceptional, high-definition audio, web and video conferencing”, Lifesize claims.
