Overall Satisfaction with Lifesize Video Conferencing

We use Lifesize to connect remote users to the main office and to connect satellite offices to the main office or to one another. We are a state-wide organization so this greatly cuts down on travel time. We have also used it to bring in content experts that are out of state that we wouldn't be able to bring in otherwise.
  • Lifesize connects remote users
  • Lifesize saves travel time
  • I wish the feature for picture-in-picture (so we can see our room as well as the rooms that we are connected to) wasn't buried in the menu system. It would be nice to set it up to show it ahead of time too, so we're not fussing with settings when someone first joins in.
  • Reduced travel costs, but It's very expensive to buy the equipment and even more expensive to maintain. I'm not sure what we're getting out of the expensive yearly fee.
  • Increases flexibility
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.
  • Zoom
Zoom doesn't connect a meeting room full of people to others, it only connects individual users.
Lifesize is great when we have a group of people in our office and others want to join remotely, and it is great for joining more than one location together that also has a Lifesize camera. It isn't as great if everyone is joining from their own computer. Then you should use a web-based program like Zoom.
