Lifesize Video Conferencing is a video conferencing solution that offers great features and a high level of collaboration with face-to-face screen sharing with HD video and audio quality, as well as being fast and secure with business quality. I really like this tool because it offers a robust but very easy-to-configure interface as well as excellent customer service and immediate connection from anywhere and on any device. I love that meetings are smooth and smart, audio and video don't get stuck and meetings run smoothly.

We use Lifesize Video Conferencing for all our web conferencing needs. The software is deployed in all departments and we have been using it for both internal and external web meetings. It is so easy to use and offers some of the best features. I particularly like the easy controls and the quality of audio and video.

As a Video Conferencing device, Lifesize Video Conferencing's generally work ok. They allow groups of people to converse that might have required a lot of travel. However, we started phasing out the Lifesize Video Conferencing devices for lack of extra features. They come in at a lower price point than some other competitor devices but with that, comes with a lack of features and sadly, a lack of support as well.

Lifesize Video Conferencing is being used across the organization. It is being used for conduction conference meetings of various departments pertaining to various units of the organization located across the country. We use the platform to share and discuss various business, execution related issues, review meetings etc. We also share the documents relevant to the meeting/discussion using the platform to facilitate our discussions. The amazing audio and video quality of the platform has been a facilitator for smooth and steady conductance of all our meetings. The platform has been a great enabler for business specifically in the time of the ongoing pandemic.

Lifesize improves communication no matter which location you are in. When considering the video quality I think it has an advantage over other tools. During the meetings, I don't face any serious interruptions or any crashes in the application. During the pandemic, video conference programs have more importance than old years so having a good video conference with colleagues really important. Lifesize one of the best tools to meet these expectations.

I am a happy customer of Lifesize [Video Conferencing] because it has helped me to get rid of my excessive workload that was mostly related to scheduling the meetings, planning them and to maintain their record was very difficult[.] This application has not helped me to organize my things but also, it is delivering the best quality video calling services.

Lifesize Video Conferencing is being used by our entire organization to conduct meetings among management as well as Virtual Office Visits with providers. Lifesize helped us stay connected with our patients during the pandemic allowing healthcare providers to continue to see patients during the quarantine and limited face to face visits.

Lifesize is a great video conference service. We use it across 12 different cities around Mexico and within 40 locations everyday at all hours. It makes remote communication easier, you really feel as if you where in person with the other side of the video. All the new features lately added are amazing.

We are currently using Lifesize Video Conferencing for the majority of our conference rooms. Lifesize allows us to quickly and easily schedule or join video conference calls. Previously we used Webex and swapped out for Lifesize a few years ago due to added feature set and pricing.

We have locations all across the world and our Head Priest uses it to consult and listen to individuals in the organizations via the Video conference. We have a 10 user license for the Lifesize Cloud. Initially we were using it also for relaying his Live Sermon for various locations but we found that the quality sent was not good enough. So now we use Livestream to transmit the Live sermon because a two way communication is not required. Also having Lifesize Cloud on the Head Priest's laptop enables him to be anywhere in the world and still have the capability of contacting all other locations.

When it comes to Lifesize Video Conferencing, [conference rooms] are the best. Moreover, the new series with USB mode will be extremely helpful. Inbuilt Audio Pick mic & Speakers are more than sufficient enough [and] the sleek design & ease of using the touch panel is [awesome] with different models for various room size.

We have been utilizing the Cloud and Room systems for over a year, and we can say wholeheartedly that they are now a vital communications tool within our business. With the ability to join a meeting from virtually anywhere and on any device, we can ensure we are attending a meeting or assisting a colleague on time every time. The browser-based calling is another awesome element, customers can join a call as a guest without needing to download anything on their laptop or desktop machines, and on a mobile device all they need to do is download the app and they are connected. With Lifesize, our team have remained connected throughout the current pandemic, ensuring the feeling of a team is retained and allowing the business to continue as close to normal as we can. The added ability to meet any of our clients or suppliers face to face over Lifesize has also proven to be extremely valuable, making negotiation and problem solving far easier, and certainly, far more efficient. We currently have our whole business using the platform, including our external consultants, which brings them into the fold of the business without the need to be in the office every day. Lifesize has been a true lifesaver during the COVID-19 period and we are eagerly looking forward to the new innovations that they will deliver in the coming months. Thank you Lifesize!

I have assisted others in setting up and making calls for planning and merger coordination. The flexibility to be able to have the video conferencing anywhere you have a telephone and Ethernet connection is great. It has a great quality picture and the sound is good. The ability to have multiple locations all together is irreplaceable.

Lifesize is used across the whole organization, mainly for internal meetings as the team is spread across various regions. It is our choice of the infrastructure that creates the bridge between the teams working in various regions and various functions. We also have used LifeSize to share the same presentation across 2 rooms within the same office when we didn't fit in one room.

LifeSize Video Conferencing is used for allowing lenders, branch managers, and other staff to be able to join meetings from various geographical locations. It is also used as a training tool to facilitate video conferencing without additional travel. It has minimized the traveling for meetings and allowed staff to be more productive by joining these type of events from the convenience of their own offices.

It is used across the entire organization, primarily for connecting remote conference rooms. We use it for smaller daily meetings, but particularly for large team (20-100) person meetings. A good example of this is our quarterly planning activities (these involve hundreds of people and take a full day). But we also use it for small 1-on-1 calls when needed.

We use it for video conferencing between remote offices. Generally speaking, it works perfectly fine and is optimized for conference room settings when it is connected to large flat-screen TVs. Where the functionality goes down a bit is for users connecting via desktop from remote locations. In those situations, users are not always able to use the screen sharing functionality. This makes for difficult moments in meetings when groups are sharing docs or views. Additionally, a big weakness and blind spot is that there is no easy way to record meetings for later viewing. Finally, better integration with the G-Suite would be nice.

Lifesize Video Conference systems are used throughout the North American area for all meetings, from Executive Team meetings to two-person Conference Room Calls. This use has allowed for F2F meetings without the need for travel. Last year, TGNA held 1.2 Million accumulated minutes in virtual F2F meetings across three(3) countries.

We purchased Lifesize primarily to connect with area high schools to offer dual credit courses to high school students. It has allowed us to send classes from our main college campus using a reliable, more intuitive video conferencing system than our previous systems.

Our campus faculty, business institute, and other departments are looking forward to using the system in addition to dual credit teaching.

Our organization utilizes Lifesize Video Conferencing to link our many sites. From our board of directors across 6 counties to our health services office and their need for video chat with our outside physicians, Lifesize is a service and product that we could not function without. Even the phone-only feature is everything we need it to be by allowing us access to pre-determined conference call "rooms" that we can distribute to various departments when the need for calls arise. We especially love the mobile app available for smartphones and tablet devices when we need to meet while on the road.
