The workplace is changing. More and more people now work from home, perhaps visiting the office to “hot desk” a couple of times a week. Mobile working is on the increase too, with staff keeping in touch via their laptop computers or, more often, their iPads or other tablet devices. Mobile communication is always improving to keep up with the changing pace of the workplace – and video conferencing is no exception. Where once you could only access video conferencing from the meeting room, you can now video conference on an iPad (or iPhone, Android phone or tablet, your desktop or laptop), wherever you are. Here’s how.
LifeSize is one of the world’s leading innovators in video conferencing technology and their aim is to create interoperable video conferencing solutions that let anyone use the service, anywhere. LifeSize® ClearSea™ is an enterprise-class client/server solution for desktop and mobile video collaboration that lets users connect from their desktops (Mac or PC) or mobile devices (iOS and Android) to any standards-based video collaboration system or infrastructure solution in seconds.
The beauty of using LifeSize ClearSea to use your iPad for video conferencing is that there is no additional equipment needed – the iPad’s camera, microphone and screen is sufficient to allow you to join the conversation. And there’s no compromise on the available features either, because ClearSea includes everything you’d expect from a professional video conferencing system, including user groups, multiparty calls, text chat, real-time data sharing, a centralised contact list and the ability to switch the camera view, no matter which device you are using.
Perhaps the biggest benefit, though, is that ClearSea gives you a contact number that will ring on all your connected devices so whether you’re in the office or out and about you’ll get the invitation and can be connected to the meeting room instantly.
There are two ways you can begin using LifeSize ClearSea:
- If you already use a dedicated video conferencing system you can purchase the LifeSize ClearSea software as a VMware server;
- Alternatively, we can offer ClearSea as a managed solution for a low monthly fee.
