LifeSize Video Center Develops Mobile HD Video Streaming

Feb 21, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- LifeSize, a division of Logitech, announced HD video content streaming on mobile devices using LifeSize Video Center.

Now organizations can benefit from greater communication reach and flexibility by using HD video streaming, recording and auto-publishing to make video content available to teams working remotely on mobile devices, such as iPads and iPhones.

According to LifeSize, features of the company's Video Center include: - Mobile Streaming: Users can access live and on-demand HD video content not only on a PC, but on a variety of devices, including an iPod, iPhone or iPad connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular network. Videos are accessed through the native Web browser, which requires no additional software installation.

- Automatic Adaptive Streaming: LifeSize Video Center now features automatic adaptive streaming so that a single HD recording from a LifeSize 220 Series endpoint can be streamed at up to four different bitrates, which means users will always experience optimal video quality especially when working from home, on mobile devices, or in locations with slow bandwidth.

- Network Storage: Organizations looking to leverage existing storage can now serve on-demand videos from NAS and store a virtually unlimited amount of footage without additional fees, giving IT administrators infinite scalability to meet enterprise needs. Administrators can also control the backup of videos in case of an emergency.

- API: Using LifeSize Video Center's API enables easier automation and integration of LifeSize Video Center into third-party systems and tools, such as the company intranet and Learning Management Systems (LMS), so that resellers and organizations can \customize the video streaming solution for their environment.

The use cases for on-demand and live video streaming cross nearly every industry. Regardless of company size, LifeSize has seen customers deploy LifeSize Video Center to enable their employees to access HD mobile video content to collaborate with remote workers and perform their roles more effectively.

LifeSize Video Center Version 1.2 software will be available for download in March 2011.
