    Chanty is very good for networking messaging and low level collaboration between peers and colleagues. It's not great for video or voice calls or whiteboarding or file sharing.
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Lifesize Video Conferencing

    I think there's much better options out there. In a small setting, they might be suitable but I don't believe they scale very well in any medium-large size businesses.We wanted to take advantage of things like a Microsoft Exchange calendar, a "Join Now" button and integrating with Teams. These are all things that our company made a sizeable investment on and in order to take things to the next level, we had to move on from Lifesize Video Conferencing.

    Pros

    Chanty

    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Lifesize Video Conferencing

    • The touchpad makes it extremely easy to join or start conference calls with a single pushbutton.
    • The Lifesize solution is affordable and has been extremely reliable for our video conference calls.
    • Camera quality is great and provides clear video for our organization.
    • The pan/tilt/zoom features are very helpful to focus in on specific people or items during a training or demonstration.

    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Lifesize Video Conferencing

    • The network was unstable during some calls regardless of the size. The screen would shake throughout the call.
    • There were challenges logging into a meetings to the point where we would have to log off our pc and log back in.
    • Sporadic Audio issues would take place regardless of where we would us the app, on-campus or off campus

    Other than the HIPAA compliance, we have no compelling reason to retain LifeSize when we can already pay for similar services included with our UCaaS service. Our UCaaS vendor, Fuze, includes video conferencing with the VoIP services via single, integrated client software package. Additional limitations include minimal implementation assistance, training service, training materials and assistance driving internal adoption. Issues with slow speed for desktop sharing and audio quality make the technical aspects of Lifesize inferior to competitors.

    Overall experience with Lifesize Video Conferencing has been great. While it serves it's basic purpose of allowing smooth video/audio meetings of people located at different places with option of screen sharing/chatting/ recording, what add to it's pros are it's accessibility from various platforms, flexibility to switch to a listen only mode in case of network issues and ease of operation.

    Since we are an educational institution we not only have scheduled classes which must be available, but we have staff members in a variety of areas ranging from recruiting and admissions to advancement and the President's office who need to connect with students, alumni and other interest groups, often at odd hours. I have not, since using Lifesize had anyone complain of not being able to connect

    Lifesize is an amazing platform for VC. However, it is a costly solution for any scaling startup. However, implementation and user acceptability was fairly easy and worth the additional spend. Quality has always been on point and support has always taken care of us. Our account manager also ensured a seamless transition process for Google Hangouts. Will go with this solution again at any other organization.

    I have been sent quite a few emails about functionality and support on a pretty regular basis, which is great. I have not had any need to contact support as the platform is pretty simple to use, it was easy to download and install and I have not encountered any bugs or other issues so far.

    Lifesize's support team will help us immediately after locking the complaint. They are very supportive & cooperative. Lifesize is the only Video Conferencing brand that replaces the faulty unit with a brand new unit. this is the most important feature & factor which have to consider while buying the Video Conferencing Solution. Lifesize is trustworthy.

    Sensus was really helpful in the initial setup and training of our technical Support Team. Sensus gave us training on site so that it would be our own equipment that was set up. Then the in house tech team took over to train other users who would be using the system. When needed the Sensus and Lifesize tech support were really helpful in trouble shooting or guiding us through any difficulty.

    I gave this rating because Lifesize's website offers multiple quality videos that shows you exactly how the software works. The videos are divided into different categories which makes searching for a video fairly simple! If for some reason you have a question not answered in one of the how-tos you can always contact support. Excellent product, excellent service!

    Great for companies that need to accomplish multiple things at once while at different places. From our experience, broadcasting news is most favorable considering the level of excellence you get with the product plus the affordability. It can be used both privately amongst employees, or shared publicly through covering events

    Alternatives Considered

    Chanty

    In terms of file sharing and speed of collaboration, I find that Slack is quicker and integration into Google Drive is very handy when it comes to working on documents, I have not seen Chanty do this. As for video Google Hangouts is as simple as it gets; again, I have not seen anything from Chanty in this area. I have also looked at and use https://guild.co/ which is much easier messaging and collaboration wise. The app and notification for Chanty is pretty good but it's loading time is slower compared to Slack and WhatsApp.

    Lifesize Video Conferencing

    When compared to Zoom, one of the massive benefits that Lifesize brings is total peace of mind with security. Call encryption is part of the core in Lifesize and not an optional feature as in Zoom. I don't know about you, but every conversation can contain private and confidential information, so protecting me, my team, and my customers is totally covered with Lifesize!When compared with other providers, the quality of the video and lip sync on Lifesize is simply flawless. With the ability to deliver a call at 4k ultra high definition at 60 frames per second, the platform is simply awesome! Zoom is only 720p and the data share is only 5 frames per second. Zoom is simply substandard when compared to Lifesize.We often speak with clients who are using Teams or Skype for Business, but when you compare the video and audio quality with that achieved by Lifesize, they simply do not match up. If you want excellent quality video and ultra-sharp audio, then Lifesize is the only way to go!

    Lifesize Video Conferencing would not change anything in the contract as it is complete and has provided me with an excellent quality service from start to finish, providing me with excellent real-time meeting features and solutions. It works very well for me with connection quality and fluid communication, the video, audio and image are HD and there are no interruptions or obstacles in the meeting. I have no dissatisfaction.

    With LifeSize Cloud, it's very easy to simply add another Icon to your system and join it to your cloud. You can easily and instantly create meetings and add users both in your organization and out without any difficulty. The cooperation between the Icons and cloud users running on their laptops makes it easy to scale this out to your entire company, including joint venture without difficulty.

    I give it this rating because Lifesize Video Conferencing has great connection speed and coverage quality in its service. It is a tool that offers excellence in video conferencing with high-level quality in audio, image and screen sharing, I love that it encourages spontaneous collaboration, increases workflow and the opportunity to communicate from anywhere and on any device with flexible features.

    Lifesize Video Conferencing

    • Training users on how to use the software is quick and easy.
    • Calling abroad saves a good chunk of money for both the end user and company.
    • Does save on travel as remote users are able to have a similar experience as the people attending the meetings and no need to travel to the other locations for meetings.
