LifeSize Unveils ClearSea Mobile Video Conferencing Tool
ClearSea, part of LifeSize's UVC platform, is simpler and more cost-effective than offerings from the likes of Cisco and Polycom, officials say.
LifeSize Communications officials want to make it easier for people to use their video conferencing technology at any time and on any device.
LifeSize, a division of Logitech, is rolling out its mobile and desktop video conferencing solution, called LifeSize UVC ClearSea, which can be used on almost every desktop and mobile device, from PCs and Apple Macs to tablets and smartphones. ClearSea is optimized for about 50 Apple iOS and Google Android devices--more than twice the number supported by other video conferencing solutions, according to LifeSize officials--and support for all mobile devices is standard.
The introduction of ClearSea is just the latest step by LifeSize in its efforts to expand the reach of video conferencing, according to Michael Helmbrecht, vice president of video solutions at LifeSize.
"What we've been working toward for a pretty considerable amount of time is addressing the needs of the more mobile users," Helmbrecht told eWEEK in an interview via ClearSea conducted on an Apple iPad.
