Best Performance Architecture
Not all solutions are created equal
LifeSize built an HD video architecture from the ground up focused
on high quality, mainstream visual communication as easy as a phone
call. LifeSize understood that customers have different needs and
different environments and wanted to ensure that customers have the
best experience regardless of what their environment can provide.
Not all encoders are created equal and just delivering an H.264
compliant stream is not enough. From broadcast quality sensors, to
custom developed ASICS, to crystal clear wideband audio, LifeSize
has true optimal performance that is simply unmatched. Superior
quality means happy users, which leads to greater usage,
accelerating the return on investment of HD video.
LifeSize was the first to deliver HD video at 768kbps and only
- Full 720p, 30/60 frames per second without
performance tradeoffs in resolution or motion.
- Dual 720p30 at 768Kbps per channel to share
people and content in full motion.
- The absolute best quality video and
resolution than any other system based on their capability.
- Security without performance compromises, use
128-bit encryption and maintain HD quality.
- 16x9 aspect ratio even when bit rates are
- Adaptive Motion Control with Forward Error
Adaptive Motion Control (AMC)
Real time visual motion protection
Why is motion important? Because people see in motion. Degradation
of visual motion and clarity becomes distracting, and clearly does
not provide an immersive feeling of “being there”.
Just as your brain adjusts to changes in your environment to protect
visual motion and clarity, LifeSize Adaptive Motion Control (AMC),
with Forward Error Correction (FEC), acts as the “brain” of your
video architecture. LifeSize AMC allows your system to adapt to
changing network conditions, auto-negotiating in real time to ensure
motion handling (at 30 or 60 frames per second, your choice). AMC
applies industry standard techniques such as bitrate downspeeding,
packet marking, and FEC to overcome network congestion and deliver
an unparalleled experience in HD video communications.
In most environments, bandwidth availability is dynamic and
sometimes unpredictable. With over 200 native resolutions supported,
no other vendor system can come close to matching the adaptive
performance available from LifeSize. The result is seamless
collaboration with no compromises. With other vendor systems, there
are dramatic drop offs in quality of experience at lower bandwidths
– it's not linear. If your eyes can adjust instantaneously, so
should your video solution.
Only LifeSize provides:
- More than 200 resolutions along the bandwidth
continuum, enabling the best quality at any bit rate.
- At most bandwidths, LifeSize delivers 2-4x
the performance of the competition.
- 720p, 30 frames per second at just 768Kbps of
bandwidth. DVD quality at less than 512Kbps.
Best Embedded Multipoint Bridging
Extending quality to multiple participants without tradeoffs
Many people are needed to make informed decisions. LifeSize has
built the highest performance
multipoint bridge architecture available in an embedded bridge
So you get the LifeSize performance advantage and the power of AMC
while you add participants in real-time. Innovation and
collaboration can’t always be “scheduled”.
Only LifeSize provides:
- Embedded, on-demand HD multipoint for up to 6
sites in all HD modes – 720p30, 720p60 or 1080p30 full size,
full frame-rate, with HD content sharing included in the base
- Transcoding - assurance that low performance
systems won’t reduce the experience for everyone in a multipoint
- Virtual multiway with custom video layouts
enabling all users to see the conference from their point of
view: 2x2, active talker in full screen, and manual switching
- On demand multipoint conferencing on the
world’s best embedded HD video bridge. Maintain that
telepresence experience while adding participants in real time.
