Lifesize® Raises Industry Bar Again - New High Definition Video Communications Product Enhances Project Team Collaboration

Lifesize® Team™ Makes True-to-Life, Cost-Effective Videoconferencing Possible for Distributed Teams and Work Groups in Any Organization

Austin, Texas, August 14, 2006

Lifesize®, the high definition video communications company, today announced that Lifesize® Team™ is now available worldwide through its network of channel partners in more than 20 countries.  Lifesize Team is a high definition video communications system specifically designed for distributed project teams and work groups that often interact in small conferencing environments.

Based on the same innovative technology as Lifesize® Room™ − a high definition video communications system for conference and board rooms – Lifesize Team delivers exceptional video and audio quality so geographically distributed participants can maximize their collaboration efforts.  Lifesize Team ensures that even subtle, non-verbal cues – raised eyebrows, folded arms and facial twitches that are essential for enabling true understanding – can be easily interpreted from afar so better group dynamics and decision making will take place.

“Today’s dispersed teams require regular, face to face meetings to achieve their increasingly challenging, global business goals.  For them, the ability to collaborate effectively and make critical decisions rapidly is paramount for success,” said Melanie Turek, principal analyst at Frost & Sullivan.  “High-definition video communications makes those meetings possible at a fraction of the cost of travel, with quality so good participants will almost think they are in the same room.”

With better quality at any bandwidth and a U.S. list price of just $7,999, Lifesize Team provides crystal clear video clarity and high fidelity audio for a productive, true-to-life experience:

  • High Definition Video – 1280 x 720 resolution at 30 frames per second
  • High Definition Audio – Super wide-band audio up to 16 kHz
  • Fully Integrated System – Includes high definition codec, and same pan/tilt/zoom high definition camera, audio conferencing speakerphone and wireless remote control as Lifesize Room
  • Standards-Based – Support for H.264, H.263 and H.239
  • Dual-Stream Support – Allows for sharing of PC and multimedia content
  • Simple to Use – Intuitive graphical interface with ability to also dial video calls and add users from integrated conference phone

“The availability of Lifesize Team furthers our mission of making high definition video communications more pervasive since small operations and project teams around the world are now able to utilize this next generation technology for conducting daily business,” said Craig Malloy, CEO of Lifesize.  “Lifesize Team is a feature-rich solution that provides the best option for interacting with others when you can’t actually be there in person.”
