LifeSize™ Now Shipping High Definition Video Products to Channel Partners Worldwide - Adds New Resellers in US, Europe and Asia


31 Channel Partners on 5 Continents Signed; Many Ready to Demonstrate Better Quality Video at Any Bandwidth with LifeSize Room™

AUSTIN, TX - October 31, 2005 - LifeSize, the high definition video communications company, today announced that it has added new resellers in the US, Europe and Asia, and is now shipping demonstration units of LifeSize Room - its high definition video communications product - to channel partners worldwide. LifeSize Room provides crystal clear video clarity and high fidelity audio for a productive, true-to-life experience. With better quality video at all bandwidths, users of LifeSize Room will experience high definition resolution at 1Mbps, DVD quality at 512kbps and Cable TV quality at 384kbps.

“We have had the opportunity to show LifeSize’s high definition video communications products to many companies and the responses have been overwhelmingly positive,” said Jean Francois Thau, General Manager of Genedis Group and CEO of Hypcom Technologies. “With LifeSize, organizations can benefit from improved communications that subsequently will have significant business implications.”

“The new products from LifeSize have the entire videoconferencing industry buzzing,” said Donald K. Jones, CEO of VSGi, the nationwide leader in video communications and integration. “LifeSize is intensely focused on making business communications more productive, and our customers from both coasts who have seen the LifeSize products are excited about having high definition video and audio in their boardrooms and in their offices.”

The benefits of video communications are achieved when people can see and hear each other virtually as well as if they were in the same room. To date, videoconferencing systems have been limited in quality due to processing power, bandwidth and other factors. LifeSize Room offers users nearly 10X the quality at a comparable price range to that of traditional systems.

“This is an exciting time for LifeSize as we deliver on our promise of bringing the very best video communications technology to the market,” said Craig Malloy, CEO of LifeSize. “Our channel partners have made a considerable investment to promote, sell and support LifeSize products, and we are very pleased to share in their enthusiasm and momentum as they begin demonstrating LifeSize Room worldwide.”
