LifeSize® UVC Video Engine™ for Microsoft® Lync™

HD Video Calls from the Desktop to the Meeting Room with LifeSize and Microsoft Lync.

The new LifeSize UVC Video Engine for Microsoft Lync works together with LifeSize 220 Series and LifeSize Passport room-based video systems to deliver the highest quality, most flexible and most cost-effective solution for continuous-presence HD video calls with Microsoft Lync.

Microsoft Lync

LifeSize 220 Series and LifeSize Passport video systems* are fully interoperable with Microsoft Lync, including registration, presence and click-to-call functionality. UVC Video Engine adds support for RTVideo to deliver the HD-quality meeting-room experience you expect from LifeSize, now with Microsoft Lync.

Ideal for organizations deploying Lync video calling at the desktop and in meeting rooms, UVC Video Engine works seamlessly with the embedded multipoint (MCU) in Room 220 and Team 220 to deliver continuous-presence HD video calls with Lync, instead of VGA and active-talker video from the Lync AV MCU.
