Leading the Charge to HD Telepresence - Interview with LifeSize CTO Casey King

January 14, 2008 | Chris Payatagool
lifesize.gifLifeSize Communications maintains that its mission is to deliver on the promise of video: face to face communication that feels as natural as being in someone's office. Using an existing broadband network, LifeSize high definition video systems provide a full telepresence experience at a price that is affordable and accessible to everyone who needs to communicate with colleagues across town or across the globe.
I caught up with LifeSize CTO Casey King who shared with me his thoughts about high definition video conferencing, LifeSize's place in that industry, and what attendees can expect to hear during the two sessions King is participating in at the upcoming ITEXPO.

What trends are you noticing in the communications market?

Video and IP are converging faster than predicted. Video is simply moving everywhere, and video is how we will communicate in the future. High definition screens are becoming ubiquitous for TVs and computer monitors, and LifeSize is leading the transition from standard definition videoconferencing to accessible, high definition telepresence. And it is all happening over existing shared IP data networks, many of which were recently upgraded to handleVoIP .
Did 2007 finish the way your company expected?

2007 exceeded all expectations. We launched LifeSize Express and the product was an absolute hit. Customers love everything about it - the small form factor, the low price, the simple interface and the gorgeous high definition it delivers. LifeSize Express changes perceptions of what is possible with video technology. LifeSize Express quickly became our best seller and is expanding the world of telepresence to a far broader audience.
