Control Central for Every Meeting Room

by Julian Fields in Cloud, Features, Lifesize, Products
We all have our favorite meeting room in the office. For me, it’s Anchor Steam—close proximity, good lighting, plenty of table space and a whiteboard that erases really well.

by Ken Conn in Changing the Way the World Communicates, Cloud, Education, Lifesize, Partners
