LifeSize downsizes telepresence gear

LifeSize Express supports a single point-to-point link

LifeSize Communications is introducing a point-to-point telepresence system that costs US$6,000, significantly less than its previously smallest system.

LifeSize Express consists of a codec, camera, remote control and microphone. Customers have to add a monitor and speakers. The company's next largest system, LifeSize Team, costs US$8,000. LifeSize Express is meant for small offices or home offices, a market for which there has been no lower-priced, high-definition alternative.

Cisco says it is coming out with a home telepresence system that costs US$1,000, but not for two or three years.

LifeSize also is introducing a software version of its LifeSize Team system called Team Multipoint, which can display video of as many as four participants at once. LifeSize Team Multipoint costs US$9,000.

The company is introducing a system called LifeSize Conference that shows participants on as many as three screens and can display a shared data screen. Pricing starts at US$40,000.

LifeSize has upgraded its LifeSize Room single-screen conferencing system to display as many as four participants at once and to include as many as six participants overall. Rather than display four participants, the system can show just the participant who is talking.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
