DESCRIPTION

 The LifeSize Connections video collaboration platform includes LifeSize HD video infrastructure components that are hosted in the cloud and offered to customers with flexible, pay-as-you-go pricing. Extending HD video collaboration across the organization used to take days, or even weeks, and often required costly travel while straining IT resources. Now, in just minutes, cloud based video conferencing gives you the power to instantly make video collaboration available across your entire organization. Built-in firewall traversal enables secure company-to-company video calling with customers, suppliers and colleagues inside or outside your organization.

LifeSize Connections is interoperable with LifeSize HD video systems: LifeSize 220 Series (LifeSize Room 220, LifeSize Team 220, LifeSize Express 220), LGExecutive powered by LifeSize, LifeSize Passport and the cloud-optimized LifeSize Passport Connect. Now remote employees can connect from a Mac or PC to meeting rooms so no one will miss an important meeting again. LifeSize Connections’ robust collaboration features, such as guest invitations, data-sharing and multiparty HD calling, ensure that your organization’s employees can get more done in less time with their own cloud based video conferencing.
