LifeSize, the high definition video communications company, and Radvision, a leading provider of video network infrastructure and developer tools for unified visual communications over IP, 3G, and emerging next-generation networks, have announced a collaboration effort to strengthen interoperability between their respective product lines. Through this joint initiative, LifeSize and Radvision will deliver distributed organizations with a dramatic improvement in productivity through high definition multi-participant conferencing and advanced gateway support.
The industry partnership will ensure seamless integration between LifeSize’s flagship product, LifeSize Room – a high definition video communications product that delivers crystal clear video and high fidelity audio – and Radvision’s recently released SCOPIA v.5 Multipoint Control Unit (MCU), which will provide multi-participant high definition (HD) video and high fidelity audio in an upcoming software upgrade. Together, LifeSize and Radvision are demonstrating the significance of bringing high definition video – a market pioneered by LifeSize – to multi-participant conferencing and the impact it is having on the industry’s shift towards this next generation technology.
“High definition video communications is offering customers a much richer conferencing experience than traditional standard definition offerings. Revolutionary products like LifeSize RoomTM have already changed our industry’s landscape,” said Boaz Raviv, Radvision’s CEO. “Coupled with Radvision’s market leading MCUs and gateways, customers will have access to a complete high definition solution from endpoints to infrastructure and gateways to bridge to other networks and devices. We are excited to partner with the leader in high definition video and provide a communications platform that fully supports the LifeSize product line.”
“We are pleased to partner with a market leader like Radvision for shaping the future of high definition video communications,” said Craig Malloy, CEO of LifeSize. “LifeSize customers have shown great interest in high definition multipoint conferencing so we look forward to collaborating with Radvision on products and initiatives that benefit our mutual clients while expanding our respective industry leadership positions.”
