June 23, 2010
Research firm Frost & Sullivan has stated that they have rated LifeSize Communications as the top HD video communications service provider serving the healthcare market and has presented the '2010 Global Visual Collaboration Price Performance Value Leadership' award to LifeSize.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas like customer care, technological innovation and product development.
Global healthcare market is fast evolving and by deploying visual communications technologies healthcare providers can enhance the accessibility to medical care as well as keep the rising financial costs of healthcare delivery in control.
The HD video communications solutions offered by LifeSize can provide 720P HD video conversations even at speeds as low as 768 Kbps, a great advantage to medical facilities that possess poorly developed network infrastructures to access the advantages of high quality video communication solutions.
LifeSize has claimed that organizations are more and more embracing personal and room-based HD video conferencing solutions in addition to larger telepresence systems, because the true value of video conferencing is realized when video is broadly accessible and the company believes that HD Video should be available to anyone, anywhere. That is the reason their focus is on delivering HD video systems that blend high-quality experience, superior flexibility, and lowest total cost of ownership.
Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Iwona Petruczynik has commented that the rising interest and importance of video communications systems within the healthcare industry is leading to increased competition among equipment vendors to secure a stake in the telemedicine market. LifeSize's innovative feature set, simple operation and high quality HD performance results in one of the most appealing solutions for healthcare professionals. At the same time, LifeSize's undeniable price effectiveness allows visual communication systems to be more widely implemented, which can greatly expand the reach of telemedicine, enable remote-based medical education, and indirectly reduce hospital costs.
LifeSize has stated that their help desk, Global Deployment Program, and professional services help bring down or avoid excessive installation costs, promote improved productivity and facilitate the customer's immediate return on investment.
In related news, Frost and Sullivan predicted second life to fixed-line telecommunications and said that the iPad has opened up the global tablet market.
