Organizations that use collaboration solutions from Polycom Inc or Lifesize along with Microsoft's Lync unified communications suite will soon have a new way to meld them together for video conferencing. Polycom and Lifesize said Tuesday they are creating dedicated room-based systems for the soon-to-launch Lync 2013 that will be delivered in the second half of the year. No pricing was announced. Both are showing off early versions of their systems this week at the Microsoft Lync 2013 conference in San Diego. Microsoft has established a room systems program to encourage manufacturers to leverage the capabilities of the latest version of Lync.
