LifeSize users are about to get an upgrade. The company, which is a division of Logitech, recently announced enhancements to its bridging portfolio, to deliver multiparty support to the LifeSize UVC Multipoint and the LifeSize Bridge.

Having flexible and reliable bridging should make those video calls nice and easy, whether it involves dozens of participants or on-demand mobile video calling. The upgrade will especially please mobile workers.

LifeSize UVC Multipoint has staked a claim as the industry’s first fully virtualized, standards-based multiparty video calling solution for on-demand meetings. Promising an administrative interface and one dial plan, LifeSize UVC Multipoint also features expanded port availability and reliability through fail-over. Another nice bonus: It doesn’t require any additional hardware; everything is available via a license key.

If you’re looking for something that will grow with your operation, the LifeSize Bridge is also available in lower entry-level capacities, including 8 and 12 ports—with a 4-port upgrade option.

“With the explosive growth of video communication on smartphones, tablets and notebooks, customers need a flexible and scalable bridging solution that is optimized for these devices,” said Robert Arnold, program manager for unified communications and collaboration at Frost and Sullivan. “Solutions like LifeSize UVC Multipoint are essential to address that market demand at the apex of this industry transformation.”

Both LifeSize UVC Multipoint and LifeSize Bridge are available now. LifeSize UVC Multipoint features a starting price of $1,499 (MSRP), with LifeSize Bridge starting at $34,999.
