 LifeSize has recently released version 4.7 of its videoconferencing system software. This newest version lets users share data like spreadsheets and presentations during video conferences through LifeSize's Passport and LGE executive systems. LifeSize Passport and LGE executive systems also let users stream and record live HD video using the LifeSize Video Center.

LifeSize has also issued LifeSize Transit Client, which allows businesses to direct HD video voice calls reliably both inside and outside of company infrastructures via a complete network address translation and firewall transverse solution. This Transit Client is the only solution currently sold as either a hardware appliance or a virtual machine option. LifeSize Desktop has also been updated to include data sharing and 720 pixel HD transmit capability.

A new LifeSize Virtial Link application lets customers can share data on either a PC or a Mac. The new edition of LifeSize Control, version 5.0, is designed to fit with any business environment, offering IT administrators new support for LifeSize Desktop, LifeSize Video Center, and Google calendar and scheduling integration. Control 5.0 also allows users to customize administrator settings and directories.
