LifeSize Introduces Unity Series, New All-in-One HD Video Conferencing Solution

LifeSize announced its Unity Series, including LifeSize® Unity 50™ and LifeSize® Unity 500™. These sleek, all-in-one HD video conferencing solutions are designed specifically for simple setup and ease of use, enabling companies of all sizes to reap the benefits of HD telepresence without the hefty price tag or the need for a room makeover.

By creating a series of products optimized to provide a telepresence-class experience, yet simple to deploy and use, we are making HD video conferencing easier than ever to bring to every home office, executive office or conference room. For companies who need to conserve their IT resources or have traditionally thought video conferencing was too complex or expensive to deploy, the wait is over.”

Engineered with simplicity in mind, the LifeSize Unity 50 is ideal for companies who want to deploy the telepresence experience quickly, requiring only two cables for quick plug-and-play setup.
