LifeSize is a critically acclaimed cloud based video conferencing suite that allows users to easily setup conferences regardless of where they are physically located in the world.
LifeSize has announced that it has updated its platform to add support for 15 languages. LifeSize will now support the following languages:
- Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)
- Simplified Chinese (China)
- Brazilian Portuguese
LifeSize founder and CEO Craig Malloy says, “Nearly one third of our LifeSize Cloud customers are outside the United States, and we know that a global service needs to speak to its users in their native language.”
Malloy goes on to say, “That’s why we’re pleased to announce that in addition to English, LifeSize Cloud is now available in 14 more languages.”
CloudWedge has reported on the emergence of LifeSize as a cloud based video collaboration suite. In January, CloudWedge reported the new release of LifeSize’s Icon 400 hardware, which significantly streamlines the process of setting up a video conference. When users begin using the LifeSize Icon 400, they simply need to:
- Provide a power source
- Connect a video source (such as an HDMI TV)
- Connect a network connection
- Login to your Lifesize Cloud account
- And begin conferencing.
LifeSize makes it easy for organizations of any size to utilize the cloud for crystal clear video conferencing capabilities. LifeSize uses IBM’s SoftLayer infrastructure in order to deliver its low latency video conferencing solution.
By utilizing SoftLayer, LifeSize has extended its reach into over 80 countries. Since LifeSize has such an international following, releasing the product with additional language support is somewhat of a no brainer. A LifeSize subscription costs $25 per month.
LifeSize’s founder Craig Malloy was also featured as CloudWedge’s Geek of the Week back in January. Read all about him and his vision for LifeSize by clicking here.
