My experience with Lifesize support and customer success advocates have been extremely helpful.

2018-07-11

Pros

The software is feature rich. Based off of other video conferencing solutions I have used, Lifesize seems to have more capabilities and strong customer support.

Cons

It may not be fair to Lifesize, but have had issues with third party connectivity tools for example clickshare.

Lifesize Video Conferencing - VTC

2019-12-06

The flexibility is great and we usually have pretty stable communication. I would recommend Lifesize, but I have heard our management is considering a cheaper option.

Pros

I like that each employee has their own account and we can join a conference via phone, PC or live in our conference room. We can present audio and video easily and consistently.

Cons

The main thing I do not like is we cannot save the picture in picture setting for our conference room. We have to be connected to the far end and then choose picture in picture. It costs us time and also kind of makes us look like we don;t know what we are doing. I personally have talked to Lifesize tech support and have not been able to figure out a better way.

LS ViCos are having a very good quality and featureset, but the endpoints are not easy to use.

2018-07-10

We had one huge success by hosting one session for our management board via LifeSize Cloud instead of using the system the conference host (european union) offered us, which was not multicompatible.

Pros

LS Software clients are easy to use, especially in comparision to the hardware endpoints.

Cons

It's not compatible to Google Hangouts, without 3rd party solutions.

Great Company and Video Conferencing Solution

2018-11-05

We have been doing business with Lifesize hardware and products for close to ten years. They have been responsive and willing to assist with any problems. Their sales team is flexible for individual company needs. I consider Lifesize a perfect size company for providing responsive competitive offerings, without being a red tape mess to deal with for software requests, billing, sales, etc.

Pros

Where one software has three pop ups to do the same task, Lifesize seems to complete it in one or two.

Cons

It would be nice if it had some of the screen controlling features that other meeting software has.

Decent tool when it works, good for product demos and conf calls

2018-03-14

Pros

Audio and video quality is great, there are no delays or drop offs. Ability to access it from the browser/web app is a bonus.

Cons

Even using the browser version, I've had heaps of issues with logging in, it won't accept my login or password, I'd have to reset it many times and it still wouldn't work.

Better communication

Pros

Lifesize is a great video conferencing tool. This is simple and easy to use.

Cons

Lifesize is expensive if you aren't using the free demo version. In my opinion there are more cost effective products that do the same thing.

Good video collaboration software

2019-09-06

Pros

I like the video feature, screen share - overall generally good video conference software.

Cons

I wish there were ways to save your login preferences and drop down select what rooms you want to join so you don't need to hard type each time.

A hidden gem for video conferencing!

2021-04-09

I preferred it over Skype because of the modern UI.

Pros

The user interface was modern and clean.

Cons

It's not as popular as Skype so it's not widely used or known. I wish more people used it for video conferencing because the product is well made.

Lifesize Review by Joan

2019-08-06

Overall this is a good app and program to use when dealing with multiple parties that are spread out over a large area.

Pros

One cool feature that I like is how the screen size changes based on who is speaking if there are multiple parties.

Cons

It is very easy to use and I have not had any issues with it since using it.

Excellent system that even the C-levels can use

2018-07-19

Corporate wide travel went way down which is exactly what we were looking for in a product that has clean video and voice for a reasonable price.

Pros

The integration with the library of available conference rooms and users makes it very easy to use. the app for mobile devices works every time and still has full features for muting video and /or audio as needed.

Cons

"Needs" updates a little too frequently. Would be nice if they rolled out patches less frequently unless there is a security concern.

We use it for staff meetings and tele-medicine.

2018-07-10

Pros

I like that so many aspects are controllable through remotely.

Cons

It is not compatible with other agencies who use different equipment - and thus has limited use in our field.

Lifesize Review

2020-09-29

Overall experience with Lifesize has been good, and it has helped me carry on my work smoothly as it allows me to remotely interact with my colleagues.

Pros

I have unhinged, and uninterrupted connection with other users, with whom I am able to share my screen, helping me in getting my work done remotely.

Cons

I would like to see a feature where multiple users can share screen at the same time.

Average video calling software

2019-01-18

While Lifesize isn't perfect, it meets the majority of needs for video conferencing. It also receives regular updates which notably increase performance and ease-of-use. Overall, a good system.

Pros

Interface on both desktop and mobile are fairly straight forward but you're left with a sense that you could be using the applications much more effectively.

Cons

Problem is you can't search by the ID to find the room, although that is often what is referenced by users trying to call in or if they were invited via email.

The Brilliant 4K Generation

2019-04-11

All of our contacts and meeting rooms are all in the same directory. This makes me feel even more connected with all of my colleagues from all DEKOM offices across the globe.

Pros

The architecture of the software has a nice design, and it is very user-friendly which smoothens the workflow even more.

Cons

Lifesize users cannot join in a Skype for Business meeting, unfortunately. But a Skype for Business user can join a Lifesize meeting.

Overall, Lifesize provides a robust, high-quality enterprise video conferencing experience.

2018-07-16

Pros

Lifesize does a great job integrating video from just about every platform imaginable, including Windows, Android, iOS and MacOS, dedicated hardware, and browser-based access. Lifesize also provides a better video conferencing experience than some of its competitors by having a people-first approach by better utilizing and maximizing available screen real estate, regardless of what kind of device you are calling in from.

Cons

The Windows client taxes even well-power laptops, especially when the user is presenting content, leading to poor performance of the app from time to time.

Good software for videoconferencing

2020-07-28

I like Lifesize for its practical access, but I believe that the platform could offer more resources.

Pros

This is a good platform for video conferencing. I like it because it doesn't crash, the fluidity of the audio and video is good.

Cons

As a user participating in the broadcasts, I believe that we could have more resources on the screen, for example, to fix the administrator's video.
