A company press note adds that LifeSize Desktop works with off-the-shelf webcams and is performance-optimized for today’s PC’s, allowing knowledge workers to stay connected to colleagues, customers, or partners from virtually anywhere in the world, whether in the office, at home, or while travelling.

It added that remote users can easily connect and receive high quality video at any bandwidth, over the corporate VPN or through LifeSize Transit, for secure NAT/Firewall traversal.

"Customers have asked for a powerful and easy-to-use desktop video communications system that allows them to extend the investment in their LifeSize Conference, Room, Team or Express systems," said Craig Malloy, CEO and founder, LifeSize Communications.

"With LifeSize Desktop, we’re giving customers the ability to connect everyone within their organization to the rich communications and collaboration experience of a LifeSize enterprise deployment, including mobile users who are often most at risk for becoming disconnected from their co-workers."

Unlike competing solutions, LifeSize Desktop is a standalone software client. The intuitive, easy-to-use interface provides a common LifeSize user experience from the desktop to the conference room. Simple to deploy and easy to use, the application is standards-based and interoperable with other SIP-based desktop or room-based video communications systems.
