Video collaboration and meeting room specialist Lifesize has unveiled a new solution, which removes the “clutter and complexity” of presenting in a meeting, with content managed and streamed over the internet.
Lifesize Share, which costs £399, is a smart device Pictured) that can either connects to your presentation port of your video conferencing system or, if compatible, directly into your display.
Content is displayed over the internet from any laptop, tablet or smartphone. This includes the ability to present content, queue files and change presenters.
In practice, a presenter would visit the customized URL via their web browser and select the room. Lifesize Share then automatically detects the computer with ultrasonic sound waves, allowing the individual to present an entire screen, a specific application or file, or stream video and audio on the meeting room’s monitor.
Additionally, Lifesize Share doubles as a separate, secure wireless access point for easy guest content sharing, eliminating unnecessary exposure to business networks.
This, explains LifeSize CEO Craig Malloy, puts an end to meeting room cables and allows teams to present content without the hassle of finding and connecting the right dongle.
“Lifesize Share makes it remarkably simple to present in meetings without losing precious minutes passing cords and trying to make connections work,”said Craig Malloy, CEO of Lifesize. “We’ve seen incredible excitement from customers and partners and a wave of demand.”
