Lifesize Opens Beta Testing for Redesigned Conferencing App Jun 20, 2017 The Conferencing Zone | Frank Griffin Collaborative solutions are embedded deep into the processes of organizations. Although the technologies have been around for some time in different forms, it is only now that the full capabilities are being leveraged to improve workforce productivity. Mobile broadband, smartphones and cloud computing are three of the biggest drivers responsible for the growth. And video conferencing uses all three in allowing users to initiate and participate in conferences to collaborate with their colleagues, partners, vendors and customers. The newly redesigned cloud-based conferencing application by Lifesize is opening a phased beta program to test the platform for audio and video quality performance to further improve the collaborative process in today's workplace.
