Overall Satisfaction with Lifesize Video Conferencing

Lifesize is a great took for our organization and it is our primary VTC service. We use the service not just for video but for phone conferences as well. Also, it is used during a company-wide meeting for non-local employees which allows them to view the presentations on the screen and they can follow along and see the presenter(s) as well.
  • When you send out a meeting invite to an external contact, they are not required to sign up, it just wants your name and maybe your email address.
  • The app on iPhone and Android work great and works seamlessly.
  • Easy to train employees on how to utilize the service .
  • The best feature to is that it allows any user to share their screen during a meeting.
  • International users have experienced spotty/jittery sound and video.
  • Connecting to meetings that are on different conferencing services is very clunky and not end user friendly.
  • Being able to remote control the camera from a mobile device would be nice. If a change is needed during a meeting, the menu is pretty large and draws plenty of attention and distracts the audience.
  • 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.
Splitting the audio-video channels and keeping the HDMI connector for easier connections with sound systems would be great. Other than that, the install is very simple but you need to figure out the correct positioning of the camera.
I think that Lifesize keeps improving and works well on a Chrome web browser, mobile device, or PC. Easy to learn and good functionality.
I recently had to work on a data security refresher for the entire company, which all employees had to show up to see the presentation. I made three separate meetings and sent out the Lifesize invites and recorded all three meetings. I then selected the best-recorded session and shared it with the people that did not attend. The video file size is a decent size and is automatically formatted to .mp4.
