Propose For New Video Conferencing

This is my next proposal to my company management, a high definition video conferencing system. Currently we are using Skype and normal PC notebook to have a video conference, Skype are very useful and really help us a lot to have a video conference between our Head Office and Corporate Office but this application is actually only for end user one-to-one conference and not reliable for a corporate uses. After my research on the video conference system, I found LifeSize was very applicable for the company in order to have a presentation take place via video conferencing. Here are the detail and spec for the system.

High Definition Video Communications -
LifeSize® Room is the high definition video communications system that combines exceptional quality and user simplicity to make remote communications a productive, true-to-life experience. The fully integrated system connects to most displays in any size conference room and provides crystal clear video clarity and high fidelity audio for productive conferencing. LifeSize Room includes embedded 4-way CP (continuous presence) and 6-way VAS (voice-activated switching) HD multipoint capabilities to connect multiple participants.
LifeSize Room enables anyone with dispersed colleagues and operations to collaborate more clearly and effectively

High Definition Conference Phone
Hear and understand participants in super wide-band up to 16 kHz audio with superior room coverage over existing systems. Use LifeSize® Phone with LifeSize Room or simply as a very powerful stand-alone conference phone.

Share Multimedia
Sharing product design concepts, new packaging or multimedia clips in high definition will be just like you were literally in the same room. Show intricate details or invite comments on a new creative idea and be sure that you see and hear every response in real-time.

From the thoughtfully designed user interface with context sensitive on-screen controls to the ability to dial video calls from the integrated speakerphone, LifeSize Room redefines simplicity.

LifeSize Room is based on the latest H.264 standard and provides H.263 support for interoperability with all standards-based video communications systems.
