Today, LifeSize has reaffirmed its commitment to relentless innovation in mobility by announcing that LifeSize® ClearSea™ supports iOS 5 and will soon feature support for the new iPhone 4S.
Solidifying its role as a pioneer in the video conferencing industry, LifeSize is the only vendor in the enterprise VC market to offer natively interoperable video calling from the conference room, to the PC and Mac, as well as the broadest range of smartphones and tablets.
Our communication landscape is changing and mobile devices are becoming more prevalent than ever. Frost and Sullivan predicts that there will be 1 billion smartphones and 300 million tablets in use by 2015. LifeSize has adapted to that industry evolution and continues to innovate its products to help align video with the way people work. In today’s announcement, we are continuing to make good on our promise to bring crystal-clear HD video conferencing to “anywhere, anyone and on any device”. Truly.
“For years the market has struggled to deliver interoperable video conferencing solutions to mobile devices – the experience has been far from the simplicity of a voice call,” said Craig Malloy, chief executive officer of LifeSize and Logitech senior vice president. “At LifeSize, driving relentless innovation is in our DNA. We know enterprise users, ourselves included, want the ease of making a video call anywhere at any time on any device. With today’s iPhone 4S announcement, we’re making that possible and changing the video calling landscape – all while maintaining enterprise-class quality.”
Along with iPhone 4S and iOS 5, LifeSize ClearSea is also available for a wealth of other mobile devices including Apple, Dell, Google, HTC, Motorola and Samsung. Certified LifeSize ClearSea supported devices (all available in the app stores today) include:
