Lifesize Video Conferencing

We had a game of the week that we were covering, along with other major area matchups. We were able to collaborate our games altogether and provide a stream that kept us up to date with what else was happening across our area, and how it affected our game of the week as far as standings. Our initial setup was difficult, and we had to work around other workers who are technologically impaired, per se. The support team provided to us was mostly unresponsive, but we managed in spite of it.

Pros

Lifesize Video Conferencing

  • LifeSize happened to be one of the solutions we were able to pitch in easily, as it moved from a complete H.323 system to a cloud solution thanks to the Lifesize cloud. This allowed users to do their Video Conference calls without spending additional money on dedicated lines for your Video Conference.
  • Easy setup and use of devices they really try to make it easy on users

Cons

Lifesize Video Conferencing

  • Lifesize Video Conferencing has limited number of participants which is 50. We've never needed more, but you never know.. Zoom Meetings for example allows 500 participants
  • Price is high for video conferencing software. It starts at $29 per user per month
  • It is not very popular, so many of our clients do not know this software

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.

Usability

We rolled out Lifesize with minimal instructions and high adoption. The touchpad on the Phone 2 is solid from a usability perspective. The touchpad on the Phone 2 allows us to remove remotes. The whole Icon experience is so much better than the color multi-function buttons on the room units (which were confusing to people). Thankfully the room units also work well with the Phone 2.

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.

Most of the front-line call takers are only as knowledgeable enough to tell you to reboot or reset. If your issue is more complicated than that, it will need to be escalated. On the other hand - most of our problems have been on our network side. The techs are ALWAYS super nice and try to be as helpful as possible. They do care about fixing the problem.

There was a very knowledgeable person each and every time I trained with them. I believe after 30-45 minutes of admin training, I had all that I needed. End user training is a breeze for our staff. In a matter of 15 minutes, we can train internally. It is that easy to use!

The system is very easy to set up in terms of hardware. For networking, you'll have to ensure that your system has a dedicated static IP address for maximum H323 compatibility. This will require your internet service provider to assist in securing IP addresses and configuring your system to work on its own static IP address.

Alternatives Considered

Lifesize Video Conferencing

LifeSize seems to be one the most interoperable systems available, and even more so now that you can connect with those who might be using Skype for business. Compared to Skype for business, I think the video and presentation experience is hands down better. However, Skype has a more mature and robust chat feature-set if that's important to you.

It's pretty impressive the number of people the system can support both in total and per conference. The system handles large numbers of connections pretty well, although there's little control over how participants are displayed on screen. One of its greatest strengths is adding large number of both video and audio connections simultaneously.

Return on Investment

Lifesize Video Conferencing

  • I believe we have reduced travel costs with Lifesize. It does help us connect our Florida campus with our main campus on a weekly basis.
  • Lifesize has allowed us to save costs by teaching six courses remotely with our faculty member teaching from the main campus.
  • When we merged our Florida campus into our University system, we made video conferencing a goal to connect the campuses. I believe we have met that goal.
