HD videoconferencing solutions, with their ability to offer advanced visual communications capabilities that take collaboration to the next level, are quickly gaining significance in today's marketplace.
LifeSize Communications (News
), a provider of high-definition video communications has particularly noticed this increasing demand as worldwide sales and customer acquisitions grew in the third quarter of 2007.
Commenting on the company's accomplishments, Craig Malloy, CEO and founder, LifeSize Communications said in a statement to the press, “Our products are winning in the marketplace, and our customers are enjoying the benefits of telepresence-quality video communications. We compete and win against incumbents when customers upgrade existing video installations, and we’re driving new growth in the industry. About one-third of our customers are new to video.”
The company recognized a sales increase of more than 32 percent from a record Q2, resulting in year-over-year growth of more than 250 percent as well as strong sales growth in all regions along with the acquisition of hundreds of new customers.
Adam Taylor, executive vice president of worldwide sales and service for LifeSize said, “High definition video communication is here, and it’s here to stay. Solutions from LifeSize are easy to install, use and maintain. They have outstanding reliability, and we’ve made them affordable for every small, medium and large enterprise. Customer reaction to our product set has just been wonderful, and that, in conjunction with our phenomenal growth, is the true measure of success.”

As a result, it is possible to leverage HD videoconferencing for clear, natural, face-to-face communications across town or across the globe to help improve business communications and the way video is used in the business environment.
"We live in a global world where people need to communicate with more customers in more places, but travel can be unbearably inconvenient, time-consuming, expensive and polluting,” also said Malloy.
“People want face-to-face communications and are looking to video to change the way they work. The market is embracing LifeSize because our products deliver on the promise of video.”
