What an exciting day! The newly independent Lifesize made its official debut in the press, and we've already seen some major publicity as a result. I will continue to post updates in the Community News Room as more and more stories roll in – Keep your eyes open and help us to spread the word by sharing the great news via social media!


We received a number of "original" stories from top-tier US and UK press thanks to pre-briefings in the last three days with Lifesize CEO and Founder cmalloy:

"’We've been waiting 20 years for the video collaboration market to become mainstream,’ said Craig Malloy founder and CEO of Lifesize. ‘Consumers have gotten used to simple communication on iPhones and texting apps and when they walk into the office in the morning they want to have that same level of engagement with customers and suppliers.’"


NetworkWorld, Keith Shaw

“If any market is built for the cloud, it’s videoconferencing. With the spinoff, Lifesize now gets to focus its energies on providing service for business customers without having to answer to a mainly consumer-based hardware company. More importantly, it gets to compete in the cloud-services market, which is expected to grow immensely.”


The VAR Guy, Michael Cusanelli

“’This is an exciting step for Lifesize and is the result of the tremendous work we have done to create a unique offering in the video conferencing and collaboration space,’ said Malloy. ‘Standing as an independent company will allow us to invest more meaningfully in our product roadmap and be more responsive to the market and our customers, which puts Lifesize on a path for impressive growth and success.’”

“In [Malloy’s] words, GoToMeeting was popular due to its ease of use, low cost and its ability to give more functionality than a plain phone call. He continued to say, Lifesize gives customers a dramatically better experience. He cites a twelve-year heritage of making conference room devices, connected cameras, corporate directories, meeting rooms, monitoring, management and service as some of the benefits of the Lifesize solution over others – including newer players in the market.”
