LifeSize launches cheap videoconferencing kit

October 25, 2007 | Chris Payatagool

Lifesize LogoTexas-based videoconferencing company LifeSize launched on Tuesday three high-definition products which are significantly cheaper than rival products, such as Cisco's TelePresence.

LifeSize offers high-definition (HD) videoconferencing from 3,500 GBP per site, and so is significantly cheaper than Cisco TelePresence, which costs around 150,000 GBP per site. Other videoconferencing products are available at a similar price to LifeSize Express, but they do not offer HD quality.

The three products are LifeSize Express (3,500 GBP per site), LifeSize Team MP (5,300 GBP per site) and the high-end LifeSize Conference (23,000 GBP per site). The company has also updated its existing LifeSize Room product (7,500 GBP per site).

The entry-level LifeSize Express includes a FireWire-connected HD camera, as well as a remote control, speakerphone and unit for connecting the system with an HD television and local area network. It can run with a wide area connection of just 1.5Mbps. The more expensive options can handle increasing numbers of simultaneous calls and support more cameras and screens, but they also require faster connections.
