LifeSize Offers Flexibility for Video Infrastructure with UVC Platform Updates
Nov 13, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
LifeSize, a division of Logitech, announced improvements to the LifeSize UVC Platform.
LifeSize announced support for Microsoft Hyper-V across the entire platform, enhanced video capabilities in multiple applications, and an all-new video management application, LifeSize UVC Manager.
According to a release, only the LifeSize UVC Platform lets customers choose how they deploy video infrastructure (in their virtualized environment or on LifeSize hardware), as well as which applications they want to activate, which features they want to access, and add capacity as the company's needs grow.
Over 90 percent of virtual environments exist on Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware. With the added support of Microsoft Hyper-V, LifeSize has extended the benefits of choice and flexibility inherent in the UVC Platform to even more customers.
"The delivery of various video infrastructure applications using a single platform greatly simplifies the deployment of the back-end technology needed to drive an enterprise video conferencing environment," said Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research. "The LifeSize UVC Platform offers a compelling combination of ease of purchase, ease and flexibility of deployment, and the ability to scale the solution as required to meet real-time requirements. Organizations seeking advanced video capabilities without the complexity of isolated video infrastructure elements should carefully consider the UVC Platform."
"UVC is the answer to so many IT challenges," said Michael Helmbrecht, vice president and general manager of video solutions for LifeSize. "We've spoken to hundreds of IT leaders who tell us the same thing. They are not looking for a one-size-fits-all solution, they are looking for ways to use their existing resources to grow as they need to grow. Our approach is not only simpler, more flexible and less time-consuming for IT, it ultimately results in a better quality of experience for users and that is always our end goal."
