SkyGroup Communications is pleased to announce that its reseller partners have immediate access to the Lifesize Icon 700, the latest solution from Lifesize offering customers a customisable command central for audio, web and video communications.

With unmatched 4K video and stunning 4K full-motion content sharing capabilities the new Lifesize Icon 700 enables superior video communication and content sharing in meeting rooms for a more seamless and intuitive video conferencing experience. Furthermore, the device’s audio has been engineered to greatly improve noise reduction and increase voice pickup.

“This device is being touted as the first and only end-to-end 4K video conferencing solution and potentially provides the most immersive and intuitive meeting room solution for customers looking to dramatically improve the video meeting experience,” states Tinus van Wyk, Product Specialist at SkyGroup Communications. “In a world where many vendors in this market are compromising on quality in light of cost, Lifesize has brought us a solution that brings 4K quality into the boardroom, at a price point that is both attractive and affordable.”

Audio on the Icon 700 features Opus audio and with greater noise reduction technology it is the perfect solution for human speech pick up and delivery. Additional features include intuitive touchscreen control, a powerful 20x zoom camera, seamless integration with the Lifesize cloud service, dual display support and a compact form factor with integrated pan/tilt/zoom 4K camera that will easily fit into any meeting space.

According to Lifesize, the real highlights of the solution are:

  • First-ever 4K video conferencing with full-motion content sharing in 4K
  • Native integration with easy-to-use cloud service designed for live 4K video
  • Ultra-wideband Opus audio for exceptional audio clarity optimised for human speech
  • The industry’s highest quality solution for multiparty calls and recordings

“The introduction of the Lifesize Icon 700 changes the playing field in meeting room technologies completely. It’s exactly what we would expect from the company that introduced the very first HD-capable video conferencing system – the Icon 700 sets a new bar for visual communications. With the Icon 700, use cases are unlimited, and we look forward to providing local customers access to what is a first in meeting room technologies,” ends van Wyk.

SkyGroup Communications is encouraging its resellers to come and view the device in its office or book a demo, with its demo unit now fully operational and ready to be put to the test. Here partners will be able to test, first hand, the solution’s 4K full-motion content sharing and unmatched 4K video.
