Lifesize has today announced a breakthrough Video Conferencing and Collaboration system for the huddle room, extending the powerful video meeting experience of the Icon series & Lifesize Cloud to the small meeting room.
The new Lifesize Icon 450 with Phone HD, paired with the Lifesize Cloud Video Communication platform aims to transform the huddle space with a highly improved camera system and access to the huge range of features and functionality, that creates a simple, powerful meeting experience for rooms aimed at 2-4 people.
Huddle rooms are fast becoming the workplace of choice in today’s office environments, but these small spaces have often been difficult to properly equip for effective Video Conferencing. Lifesize have greatly improved the camera design to specifically address the issues of the huddle room, with the Icon 450 smart-framing sensor to intelligently adjust the camera and automatically capture everyone inside the frame.
Utilising a wide-angle lens and smart-framing, alongside Lifesize’s cloud-based conferencing application, the solution provides effortless collaboration that’s simple for everyone to use, whilst ensuring IT administrators can easily access and utilise all the features necessary for effective support.
For most businesses, the conference room is still the central point of meetings and team collaboration, so the ability to effectively connect users to the conference room is critical. The Lifesize Icon 450 combines our rich history in conferencing devices with our powerful cloud-based service to provide a seamless video communication experience for users in today’s most popular conferencing location – the huddle room”
– Craig Malloy, CEO of Lifesize
