LifeSize is one of four vendors in the Microsoft Lync Room Systems programme

LifeSize and Microsoft have collaborated to create a new Lync Room System, a joint effort that LifeSize says will bring the Lync unified communication experience to the meeting room.

LifeSize is one of four video collaboration vendors participating in the Microsoft Lync Room Systems programme, aimed at developing a new product category designed around Lync 2013.

The vendor has now launched its LifeSize LRS1000 for Microsoft Lync, a meeting room collaboration solution that natively runs Microsoft Lync 2013 software optimised for meeting rooms.

“LifeSize has been a proud collaborator with Microsoft since 2011, and we strive to continue to work closely with them to deliver products that seamlessly interoperate with Microsoft’s unified communication platform,” says Matt Collier, senior vice president of corporate development at LifeSize. “With this announcement of our new LifeSize LRS1000 for Microsoft Lync, we are making good on our promise to deliver the best-possible communications experience by extending Lync’s simple, user-friendly interface beyond PCs and mobile devices to meeting rooms of all sizes.”

LifeSize LRS1000 for Microsoft Lync supports voice and video calling on Lync 2013 and Lync 2010 with a touch-screen control console that showcases a user directory, calendar and presence information, an HD camera, stereo microphone and support for up to two touch-displays for digital whiteboarding.

“Microsoft’s relationship and joint product development with LifeSize is of great value in our efforts to maximise adoption of unified communications video and collaboration solutions by everyone.” says Giovanni Mezgec, general manager for Lync product marketing at Microsoft. “Customers who are seeking a room-based video and collaboration system that runs Lync 2013 will be pleased with the seamless, intuitive experience that LifeSize has developed.”

The LRS1000 for Microsoft Lync will be available in the second quarter of the 2013 calendar year.
