Lifesize have today announced the Lifesize Icon 500 Video Conferencing system, a next-generation 4K Video Conferencing system, alongside the Icon 300 for huddle rooms. The Icon 500 brings immersive collaboration to mid-sized meeting rooms.
The new Icon 500 expands the portfolio of 4K capable solutions, bringing full-motion 4K content sharing and 4K video-quality to medium-sized rooms and meeting spaces, alongside support for dual displays and an integrated 5x zoom camera. Content and people are able to be displayed and presented in real-time at the highest quality possible in the market place today.
“Today, meetings are becoming shorter, more frequent and less structured, with workers joining remotely and collaboration happening when work dictates instead of during prescheduled intervals. Smaller meeting spaces and huddle rooms play a critical role in organic collaboration, but they are lacking technologically when compared to larger meeting spaces. To bring video collaboration to the entire business, organizations need cost-effective ways to provide employees with video quality that rivals the in-room meeting experience coupled with a familiar, intuitive interface that makes video conferencing second nature. That’s exactly what we are delivering with the new Icon 300 and 500.”
– Craig Malloy, Lifesize CEO.
The Icon 500 is available for pre-order via VideoCentric, with availability expected in in Summer 2019.
The Lifesize Icon 500 is one in the second wave of announcements within the Lifesize next-generation portfolio of Video Conferencing endpoints, following on from the Lifesize 700 announcement in December 2018. The Icon 500 provides:
- 4K video
- 4K content
- Support for dual displays
- Integrated 5 x zoom camera
- Control via the Lifesize Phone HD
Designed for the cloud, the Icon 500 Video Conferencing endpoints connect straight into the newly enhanced Lifesize Cloud platform to access all the features needed for professional collaboration, and are continually upgraded and backed by 24/7/365 support, providing businesses with peace of mind and seamless updates for new capabilities.
Lifesize will showcase the new Icon 500 alongside it’s new Icon 300 during Enterprise Connect 2019, this week. For more information about 4K video conferencing solutions, get in touch with VideoCentric today.
