Lifesize Connect Plus+ Enables Multivendor Hybrid Video Meetings

Lifesize, the original inventors of high-definition videoconferencing and creator of the world’s first cloud-based omnichannel contact center, launched Lifesize Connect Plus+, a new DSS feature for its 4K Lifesize Cloud Room hardware. The new interoperability feature builds on the success of Lifesize Connect to provide seamless multivendor meetings connectivity while protecting existing Lifesize hardware investments.

In today’s hybrid work environment where 62 percent of organizations use three or more videoconferencing applications to collaborate, every meeting room must support multivendor video meetings. Lifesize Connect Plus+ makes it easy to work together across geographic and vendor boundaries, so people can focus on the meeting’s topic and content – without worrying about the technology. Lifesize Connect Plus+ enables Icon 300/500/700 series conferencing hardware to directly join a Microsoft Teams or Zoom meeting without requiring the user to bring their laptop or tablet to the meeting room. The result is yet another advantage for Lifesize Cloud Meeting Rooms to leverage the power of hybrid meetings in 4K.

Other key benefits include:

  • Support for Linux desktop apps from leading video meeting solution providers in addition to the Lifesize 4K meeting experience
  • No additional computing devices (laptop, tablet, etc.) required; simply add a keyboard and mouse to a Lifesize 4K Icon device
  • Device Software Subscription upgrade for existing Lifesize customers, enhancing multivendor connectivity while protecting existing investments
