In case executives targeted by this
new HD video and voice communication solution have any doubts about the quality of the all-in-one system, let me tell you that the company that LG has paired when developing it, LifeSize, is actually a division of Logitech. And they have integrated their renown LifeSize HD video conferencing technology in the LG Executive system in order to perfect it.
"Our guiding principle with LG Executive, powered by LifeSize, was to develop an attractive solution that makes communicating with other video users simple,” said Jeff Dowell, VP of Digital Signage, LG Electronics. “The integration of LG HD display technology with LifeSize’s innovative HD video communications technology results in a natural extension of the high-quality, immersive experience of LifeSize room-based and telepresence systems.”
The LG 24-inch HD display equipping LifeSize's gear also supports wideband audio and is capable of delivering point-to-point HD video calls at 720p, 30fps HD resolution
, thanks to the powerful HD-capable camera that it comes with. Microphone and speakers are also integrated so that the LG Executive Video Conferencing system is ready to be used from moment one after installation (which only takes only minutes, they say). It is also compatible with mainstream Unified Communications technologies from all the popular vendors out there, such as Cisco
, Alcatel-Lucent or Microsoft.
“As more people recognize the value of video communications to improve collaboration and productivity, audio conference calls are becoming a thing of the past,” said Craig Malloy, CEO of LifeSize Communications. “LG’s Executive Video Conferencing System is more than a solution that streamlines the HD video communications experience – it is one leap closer to our vision of a world where HD video communication is as mainstream and seamless as a telephone call.”
The price for a business tool such like this one is of $2,999 USD and global shippings will start in Q3 of 2010.
