Lifesize Room® Greatly Improves Collaboration Experience for Legal Teams and Clients through Enhanced Video and Audio Quality

Lifesize, the high definition video communications company, today announced that Lifesize Room – the first high definition video communications system designed to provide nearly 10 times the quality of existing solutions – will be displayed at LegalTech New York from January 30 to February 1, 2006. Lifesize channel partner SPL Integrated Solutions, the leading nationwide design and integration company for collaborative communications solutions, will conduct Lifesize Room demonstrations in Booth 3408 during the show’s exhibit hours.

Lifesize Room redefines the video communications experience by allowing attorneys, clients and legal teams to now collaborate more clearly and effectively. With better quality video at any bandwidth, users of Lifesize Room will experience high definition resolution at 1Mbps, DVD quality at 512kbps and Cable TV quality at 384kbps.

“We work with numerous law firms around the country and they are always eager to implement new solutions that promise to improve their daily business interactions,” said Jerry Gale, vice president of marketing, SPL. “Reducing client costs and increasing attorney productivity are key components that will certainly be realized through high definition video communications, so we are very excited to be debuting Lifesize Room at LegalTech.”

As time increasingly becomes more valuable and service costs continue to escalate, businesses need to adopt solutions and practices that enable greater efficiency and results. In the legal profession, conducting depositions and testimonies can be an expensive endeavor based on extensive attorney travel requirements to conduct in-person interviews. To date, poor video and audio quality did not make videoconferencing a viable alternative. Now, through high definition video communications, the entire legal process can be facilitated and accelerated in a way that was never before possible.

“The true value of high definition video communications is realized when applications that were never able to take advantage of video technology can now alter how business is conducted,” said Munira Fareed, vice president of marketing, Lifesize. “The legal community is definitely recognizing what high definition video offers in cost savings and productivity gains so we are very pleased that SPL, given their extensive experience working with this industry, is demonstrating our recently released Lifesize Room product at LegalTech.”
