WHAT IS UVC?
The LifeSize UVC Platform for Universal Video Collaboration focuses on three key qualities:
FLEXIBILITY: Organizations need added flexibility to deploy, manage and use video conferencing across networks and with more people on more devices, in offices or on the road. By giving users ultimate flexibility, our customers have more freedom to choose video conferencing systems, video infrastructure and video services that meet their needs and budgets.
SIMPLICITY: LifeSize systems are simple to buy, deploy and provision, less complicated and easy to use and manage.
PERFORMANCE: By performance, we are referring to consistent, reliable quality; crystal clear HD images; best-in-class audio; low bandwidth utilization; and seamless scalability.
LifeSize Universal Video Collaboration reflects a continual drive to create intelligent, practical solutions that people want to use. To be truly universal, video conferencing needs to be accessible to anyone, from any location. And beyond all else, it needs to bring people together to share ideas and information.
This is a big step towards making video deployments easier to justify, deploy & support. This type of infrastructure will become the industry norm in the next few years
