Lifesize Express Recognized for Outstanding Innovation
Lifesize Communications, the global leader in high definition video communications, announced that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC®) Unified Communications magazine (www.uc-mag.com) has named Lifesize® Express™ as a recipient of its First Annual 2007 Product of the Year Award.
“We are honored that Unified Communications has chosen to recognize Lifesize Express with this award, and are pleased to see high definition video communications recognized as an essential component of the unified communications landscape,” said Craig Malloy, CEO and founder, Lifesize Communications. “Lifesize Express delivers natural face-to-face experience that connects people far more effectively than email, instant messaging or phone calls, which leads to improved communications, faster decision cycles and better business performance. By making telepresence accessible for everyone, Lifesize Express can improve the effectiveness of any unified communications deployment.”
Launched on October 23, 2007, Lifesize Express delivers a high definition, point-to-point video communications experience at a significantly lower price than most standard definition video conferencing systems. About the size of a wireless router, Lifesize Express offers telepresence quality HD video for less than $6,000.
“Unified Communications magazine bestows Product of the Year awards on companies that have demonstrated excellence in technological advancement and application refinements, said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Group Editor-in-Chief of Unified Communications. “Lifesize has demonstrated to the editors of Unified Communications that Lifesize Express has gone the extra mile to help improve both the customer experience and the ROI for the companies that use them.”
