LifeSize announces software-based MCU

AUTHOR: Inavate

Lifesize has introduced enhancements to its bridging portfolio to provide flexible, virtualised multiparty support with LifeSize UVC Multipoint and LifeSize Bridge.

LifeSize says that one of the driving forces behind this new offering is the evolution of the modern workplace—with more remote workers, fewer physical office spaces and more flexible hours. With this new landscape comes a new challenge: how to effectively collaborate and boost productivity in an increasingly mobile world. Whether the device of choice is a laptop, tablet, smartphone or new software application, companies no longer have to scramble to provide needed infrastructure and support.

LifeSize UVC Multipoint is claimed to be the industry’s first fully virtualised, standards-based multiparty video calling solution for on-demand meetings.
