LifeSize Intros LifeSize Passport

LifeSize Communications has introduced LifeSize Passport, an HD video conferencing system that provides the telepresence experience to anyone, anywhere. One-third the size, one-third the weight and one-third the price of any other system in its class, Passport delivers telepresence in the palm of your hand. LifeSize Passport is also the world's first HD video communications system to enable Skype audio calls to the more than 480 million registered Skype users.

LifeSize Passport is the only HD video communications system that delivers on the promise of making high quality, life-like video communications a mainstream business tool. No longer is HD video bound by conference room and board room systems at the high end, or web cam quality at the low end. With LifeSize Passport, users can communicate in telepresence-quality HD video and audio at a price that enables even small businesses to take advantage of video communications, as well as allows enterprises to cost-effectively implement video throughout their organisation. At less than 1lb in weight, Passport can be easily deployed anywhere.

As the first HD video system to enable Skype audio calls, LifeSize Passport opens the Skype audio experience to the more than 480 million registered users of the popular video and audio internet communications software. From the LifeSize interface, Passport users can easily connect directly with any Skype user worldwide, as well as with other LifeSize and standards-compliant enterprise video systems. LifeSize Passport is software upgradeable, easily supporting new product features and protecting user investment.
