by Colin Buechler, CEO, LifeSize
First of all, I’d like to personally thank Craig for his years of support and for providing the vision that has taken LifeSize to the levels of success we’re experiencing today.
Since our inception, LifeSize has consistently been the leader and innovator in this market. Think about how much we’ve accomplished in the past nine years. We were the first to HD; the first sub-$1000 HD video endpoint, and we’re reinventing infrastructure in this industry. This past year saw us excel in new industry firsts – in the cloud with LifeSize Connections, expanded infrastructure solutions and support for the broadest range of mobile devices with our acquisition of Mirial. The list goes on and on.
Today, LifeSize is entering the next era of growth and opportunity. You may think that video has come a long way since LifeSize began in 2003 and you would be right. But we are still in the early stages of the video wave. Just think about how many conference rooms in the world are still not video enabled. Think about how many businesses aren’t realizing the potential of visual communication. We intend to change that.
Both Craig and I are excited about this next chapter of the LifeSize story. At LifeSize, we have so much to be proud of and I am certain that even better things are yet to come. Our core competency to innovate and lead the industry will never change. From the boardroom to the home office, from the mobile device to the cloud, LifeSize will continue to create the future of the visual communications industry by inventing it.
I look forward to sharing our ideas and innovations with you here on the blog in 2012.
