Lifesize, the high definition video communications company, today announced that it is a supporter and sponsor of the Austin Technology Council Center of Innovation being held during the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT 2006). As a way to expose WCIT global business leaders to local technology, Lifesize's high definition video communications product, Lifesize Room™, will be on display at the Austin Hilton Downtown from 10am- 5pm on May 3, 2006.

Lifesize Room is the first high definition video communications product of its kind and provides better quality at any bandwidth. For a comparable price range to that of traditional, low resolution videoconferencing systems, Lifesize Room offers nearly ten times the video quality improvement and twice the audio coverage over other solutions, resulting in a greatly enhanced user experience.

WCIT 2006 will welcome approximately 2,000 thought leaders and decision makers from industry, government and academia around the world. Coming from 80 countries, these delegates will participate in the WCIT to ensure the positive impact of information technology proliferation on the global community. The Center of Innovation provides a unique opportunity for Austin technology companies to connect face-to-face with the WCIT delegates to present their businesses and products to an international market.
