LifeSize® UVC Video Center™
LifeSize UVC Video Center is the world’s
most powerful one-button HD streaming,
recording and auto-publishing solution.
With the simple push of a button, users
can record and share executive updates,
business presentations, sales meetings and training sessions
as well as share data, charts and images.*
Live and on-demand videos are automatically optimized for every
viewer—desktop, laptop, tablet or phone—thus ensuring a quality
viewing experience with minimal delays or buffering.
Frustration-Free Streaming and Recording
LifeSize UVC Video Center makes life easier for IT administrators,
who can allow authors to auto-publish video content. It supports
an unrivaled number of concurrent recordings, on-demand video
streams and simultaneous live streams, up to 720p30 HD video.
Thanks to features such as multicasting and federation, users
can not only broadcast and record videos at the press of one
button but can also reach even broader audiences in more places
without stressing the organization’s network or budget.
Collaboration Made Simple
Integration with Active Directory simplifies user and group
management, and a built-in reporting feature gives insight into
user viewing patterns. Users can also add chapters and closed
captions to their videos or embed them in websites and social
media tools. In addition, LifeSize UVC Video Center offers API
support for integration with third-party applications and a plug-in
for Blackboard Learn™, the leading learning management system
in higher education.
