Ensure you have QoS enabled for the VC demands. While the system can be used with minimal requirements, this would not be my recommendation, based on my experience. Keep the firmware up to date in order to avoid issues with compatibility.
The older systems will not work with Teams, so be aware you may well need to upgrade to a system from the last few years.

The integration of our Icon 400, paired with a medium sized LG display was simple and straight forward. With our previous conferencing systems, it took an entire day just to set up the system, or it needed to have an integrator involved. In a day, I had the hardware mounted and the Lifesize Icon 400 installed, tested and running!

Implementation is really simple! The quick start guides give you everything that you need to be up and running in no time at all. There are even extensive training materials and articles on the website to help the user with job-specific questions. If you have an internet connection and a TV to connect to or a mobile device, you're all set!

It was a while ago. I don't really remember. I think it all went fine, except that our internet at the time was poor. Now it's a lot better. This box is making me put in a 50 word minimum answer and I don't really have anything else to add; sorry.

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.

Need easier browsing on the website's support page. I can't find international numbers from support, and instead need to log into the account in order to see them.

Need to have better webpage meetings for guests logging into meetings, or the ones who don't want to download the app.

Very easy to deploy even when we aren't able to be onsite ourselves and only helping the customer remotely. The one thing that would be appreciated in future releases is the possibility to manage all different customers and their video systems from one portal and login instead of having to create a login for each and every customer.

The implementation was pretty easy and fast, You can do it with your internal team and it should not be any problem. Integration with other software is also pretty easy. But, if for some reason you have any issues with implementation or integration you can contact Lifesize Video Conferencing support team 24/7.

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.

The setup of the software itself was not all that bad. There were some permissions problems, but that is mainly due to our security. Setting up cameras took a very long time and delayed the use of the product. It took about 30 minutes per conference room. But once everything is up and ready, it is pretty reliable.

There are many options and services available. After being heavily invested in the LifeSize ecosystem since before the cloud service was available, I can say that we have generally been quite satisfied with both the hardware systems we've implemented in our conference rooms, as well as with the LSC app and service. I'll also say that LifeSize support has always been incredibly responsive, helpful, and open to feedback.

No. I do not have any concerns regarding the setting up and implementation of the software as once set up, it easy to use in communication. Maybe in the future, I may have some insights and concerns to share but for now, as an organization, we are happy with the services and benefits acquired from the app.
