LifeSize ClearSea adds immediate iOS 5 support, enables anytime, anywhere enterprise video calling on broadest range of devices
AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 4, 2011 - LifeSize, a division of Logitech (NASDAQ: LOGI) (SIX: LOGN), today announced that LifeSize® ClearSea™ (formerly Mirial ClearSea), an enterprise-class desktop and mobile video conferencing platform, now supports iOS 5 and will soon feature support for the new iPhone 4S. Users will be able to instantly connect from any iPhone, including iPhone 4S to any standards-based video conferencing system.
Since Logitech’s acquisition of Mirial in July, LifeSize has been working to extend open, interoperable video collaboration solutions to anyone, anywhere, on any device. LifeSize leads the industry in bringing enterprise-class mobile video to market and driving adoption, with video calling apps available today for a wealth of iOS and Android-based mobile devices from Apple, Dell, Google, HTC, Motorola and Samsung. As a result, LifeSize is now 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.
“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,” said Craig Malloy, chief executive officer of LifeSize and Logitech senior vice president. “At LifeSize, driving relentless innovation is in our DNA. We know enterprise users, ourselves included, want the ease of making a video call anywhere at any time on any device. With today’s iPhone 4S announcement, we’re making that possible and changing the video calling landscape – all while maintaining enterprise-class quality.”
LifeSize ClearSea is an enterprise-class client/server solution for desktop and mobile video collaboration. Because it’s open and interoperable, 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. LifeSize ClearSea Server is available as a hardware appliance or virtual machine software and includes a state-of-the-art HD desktop client for PC/Mac and Android/iOS mobile devices as well as NAT/firewall traversal and multi-party conferencing capability.
