Home Business IT Networking LifeSize supports iPhone 4S in video conferences

Videoconferencing systems vendor LifeSize, a subsidiary of Logitech has been quick to embrace the new iPhone 4S, announcing that its ClearSea desktop and mobile videoconferencing platform supports iOS 5 and will support the new iPhone 4S from November.

This, it says, will enable iPhone 4S (and other iPhone users) to connect to any standards-based video conferencing system.

According to LifeSize CEO, Craig Malloy, "For years the market has struggled to deliver interoperable video conferencing solutions to mobile devices - the experience has been far from the simplicity of a voice call'¦With today's iPhone 4S announcement, we're making that possible and changing the video calling landscape - all while maintaining enterprise-class quality."

LifeSize claims to be the only vendor in the enterprise video conferencing market to offer "natively interoperable video calling from the conference room to the PC and Mac as well as to iOS 5 and a broad range of smartphones and tablets," functionality that it attributes to Logitech's acquisition earlier this year of Italian video conferencing vendor Mirial.

Logitech said at the time: "Mirial supports a broad range of iOS and Android devices including the iPhone 4, 3GS and iPad 2; HTC EVO, Desire, Incredible, myTouch 4G, Sensation and ThunderBolt; Motorola Atrix and Xoom; Samsung Epic 4G, Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab as well as Google Nexus S and Dell Streak."

LifeSize ClearSea, formerly Mirial ClearSea is billed as "an enterprise-class client/server solution for desktop and mobile video collaboration [with which] users can seamlessly connect from their desktops or mobile devices to any H.323 or SIP-based video conferencing system or infrastructure solution in seconds.

The LifeSize ClearSea Server is available as a hardware appliance or virtual machine software and includes an HD desktop client for PC/Mac and Android/iOS mobile devices, NAT/firewall traversal and multi-party conferencing capability.
