AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lifesize, a global innovator of video collaboration and meeting productivity solutions, today announced it has been named a Visionary in Gartner, Inc.’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Meeting Solutions1 report. Vendors in the Magic Quadrant report are evaluated based on completeness of vision and ability to execute; this is the second consecutive year Lifesize has been included.
“We consider Gartner’s recognition of Lifesize as a Visionary in the latest Magic Quadrant for Meeting Solutions to be validation of the progress we’ve made in delivering powerful workplace meeting and collaboration experiences to enterprise teams and organizations of all sizes across the globe,” said Craig Malloy, CEO of Lifesize. “Our continued dedication to leading-edge innovation of modern meeting room systems, video conferencing software and cloud-based communication services transforms the way our customers do business.”
According to the report, “Buyers of meeting solutions are increasingly interested in converged solutions that offer embedded audio, along with video and collaborative capabilities (e.g., screen sharing, virtual whiteboards). The market’s focus has shifted away from narrow categories based on delivery mechanisms toward broader, ubiquitous access. Meeting technologies have developed in the past few years to allow users to benefit from the collaborative experiences whether they are using videoconference room systems, sitting at their desks using desktop or web clients, or accessing from mobile devices. While the cloud-based meeting solutions vendors initially focused on delivered services to PC clients and mobile apps, more care has been taken in recent years to improve ease of accessibility from videoconference room systems.”
Lifesize provides video conferencing solutions that enable 4K-quality video meeting experiences, collaborative content sharing and high satisfaction for customers in more than 100 countries through a growing partner ecosystem. The company’s market-leading meeting room devices, software and services allow users and IT teams to host, join and manage video, audio and web conferencing via a single cloud-based platform.
“Lifesize’s significant gains in completeness of vision and ability to execute are reflective of the breadth and depth of our platform investments over the past several years,” said Michael Helmbrecht, chief operating officer of Lifesize. “Our aim remains to provide customers the highest-quality solution possible while delivering a user experience and capabilities designed to meet the needs of both IT and business users.”
Corporate momentum and product roadmap milestones achieved by Lifesize over the past 12 months include:
