|To conference with more than one remote location||Set up a virtual room for an audio call that can include video—a “meet-me” model.||“Meet-me” or direct-dial video calls not integrated with the cloud.||A “meet-me” virtual video conference room.||Dial multiple people into an unreliable, low-resolution meeting.||Instant or scheduled video meetings over the cloud on any device.|
|To dial people directly||Sorry. You need to dial a phone number, enter your access code, etc.||Dialing is complex with confusing number strings. IT has to build and push centralized directories.||Hope you’re not in a hurry. You have to plan ahead, schedule your meeting and wait for everyone to join.||Direct dial works, but the experience is still questionable.||Direct dial all you want.|
|To access the conference room||Not available.||You better have a good IT department to manage all the infrastructure and to train and support your people since cloud is not an option.||Only if you integrated your own video endpoint and often at an inflated monthly fee for each one.||If you position a laptop just right at the end of the conference table.||Yes, using the industry’s best video endpoint.|
|Ease of use||Yes, but very limited functionality.||Not at all. Have IT support ready.||Same as web conferencing.||Yes, so long as you don’t need to add or drop people from a live call.||Absolutely. Lifesize is designed around ease of use.|
|Cost-effective||Yes, but are the limitations worth the price?||No way. The sticker price is just the beginning of how much it costs.||Yes, but for fewer features and less integration.||Yes, it’s free, but you get what you pay for.||Yes. Pricing starts at just $25 per user per month.|
|Business class video and security||No. The best option when you’ve accepted this is the best there is.||Yes, but at a huge cost.||Yes, but dependent on your video endpoints.||No. Free doesn’t mean business class.||100%.|
