Lifesize Connections - In the Cloud!
Lifesize Connections is the first cloud-based videoconferencing solution. Lifesize Connections is a cloud-based service that gives organizations the opportunity to take advantage of multipoint, high-definition videoconferencing using a mix of desktop and hardware-based endpoints.
The benefits of a cloud-based platform are accessibility and ease of deployment. It used to take days, or even weeks to extend high-definition video collaboration across the organization, but now it takes just minutes. Cloud-based provisioning gives you the power to instantly connect remote employees to conference rooms to guarantee no one will miss an important meeting again.
