LifeSize offers better integration with Microsoft UC

Lifesize, a major provider of HD video conferencing systems, has announced that LifeSize Team 220 is now qualified within the Microsoft Office Communication Server platform, and that Microsoft users will be able to utilize their products with a much greater level of flexibility. The company also expects products like Room 220, Express 220 and Passport to achieve qualification in the near future.

The Lifesize solution qualification provides support for:

  • Encryption and authentication services to ensure that all communications are as secure as possible.
  • Greater ease in placing calls to third-party systems that exist within the Microsoft OCS 2007 R2 environment.
  • The ability for a single Office Communications Server account to make and receive calls between different devices.
  • Seamless calling to outside parties through Firewall/NAT Traversal (this will be achieved via Microsoft Edge Services).
  • An updated Microsoft Office Communicator view in which LifeSize systems are added to the contact lists. Microsoft Office Communicator will also be added to the LifeSize systems contact list.
  • Automatic configuration of any LifeSize system that is registered to Microsoft Office Communications Server.

The company has also stated that intend to seek qualification with Microsoft Lync at a later point in 2011. If they are successful, their customers will be able to upgrade from Microsoft Office Communications Server to Lync on a time scale of their choosing.
