Welcome to my Blog

To say I was coerced into writing a corporate blog would not be completely accurate. You see, I actually volunteered to do this after reading Seth Godin’s book, Tribes. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Right now I’m sitting at gate D40, DFW airport. The 6 pm flight moved to 7 pm, then 7:10 pm and now they are saying that 7:30 pm is the new estimate for a decision. Not departure, but decision. Not promising. Something about the front gear strut and autopilot.

I love to fly. In fact, I fly for recreation. I got my private pilot’s license when I was 17, built my own airplane when I was 37, and things with wings still obsess me at almost 49. But commercial aviation has truly taken the fun out it.

Luckily for me, LifeSize makes great high definition video communications products that we use ourselves everyday. I don’t actually travel on a plane that much. Certainly not as much as a typical CTO does. I do travel around the world everyday using LifeSize technology. Often multiple locations in a day and I can still be home so my wife and I can catch my sons baseball games.

I’ll use this blog to talk about a lot of different topics. Technology, trends, products, features, people, and occasionally a topic that is unrelated to anything LifeSize . My intention is that this will be an interactive adventure and we have a lot of ideas to make that happen.

Almost forgot, my name is Casey King, I am the Chief Technology Officer at LifeSize Communications. Welcome to my blog.

*The flight actually left at 9:00pm. I checked into the hotel at 1:30 am.

    Congratulations. You’re off to a good start. Don’t forget Twitter, too!

    How was this recorded — from the HDMI. We have been experimenting with this so we can record customer testimonials via the VC system.

      There are 2 methods to capture box records.
      -To record without calling the system, it will record from the HDMI feed and audio from the directional microphone.
      -To record an incoming call or outgoing call, then it will take the video from HDMI and audio from the audio line out.

      We plan to write up a usage and creation document for this capture box in the near future – so more details to come.
