Chorus Call Australia, has deployed LifeSize ClearSea and LifeSize UVC Multipoint to enable its users to collaborate in high-definition video on PCs, Macs and mobile devices. The service allows Chorus Call clients to remain connected beyond the boardroom by using laptops, Android phone, tablets and devices to participate in video conferencing calls.
LifeSize ClearSea allows mobile users to seamlessly and securely connect to any standards-based video collaboration system or infrastructure within seconds, while LifeSize UVC Multipoint brings scalability to the solution, enabling the connection of multiple parties. In addition to high definition video and audio, LifeSize ClearSea offers collaboration tools such as real-time data sharing, text chat, far-end camera control, easy switching of camera views and a centralised contact list.
Chorus Call is the first Australian organisation to offer LifeSize ClearSea as a video conferencing service to clients. It has deployed the solution across a number of data centres throughout the country to ensure consistently fast response times for all users, no matter where they are located.
With mobile device use on the rise, tools like LifeSize ClearSea are incredibly valuable for businesses of all sizes. Since being previewed to Chorus Call clients in November 2012, more than 70 organisations have already signed up for the mobile and desktop service. The majority of these organisations are using LifeSize ClearSea as a complement to their existing room or desktop-based video conferencing arrangements, enabling executives who are away from the office to continue to check in to meetings and discuss issues with staff.
“Work patterns are changing and the need for workplace flexibility is only going to increase,” said Morley Foster, chief executive officer of Chorus Call Australia. “A lot of customers are looking for a mobile capability that doesn’t require investing capital in building their own solution. They also want security and the ability to add participants without any degradation of service. LifeSize ClearSea allows us to meet this need by providing a scalable, high-definition video communication service that crosses all major platforms, offers excellent resolution and is easy to use.”
“Technology has become so pervasive that people expect it to work any time, any place,” added Simon Claringbold, general manager and vice president of LifeSize, Asia Pacific. “They aren’t interested in the details and they don’t like making allowances for services that can’t cater for their particular device or circumstances. Chorus Call recognises this and makes video communications a simple process for organisations to keep everyone connected.”
