To bring together multiple sites, users or devices, you need a meeting place. UVC Multipoint delivers this in the form of a multiparty high definition meeting room bridge (commonly referred to as an MCU or Multi Party Control Unit) that can deliver up to 50 ports of HD video bridged together.

You can integrate Lifesize Icon units to this multiparty capability via UVC ClearSea and it interoperates with all major manufactures such as Cisco, Polycom, Starleaf and Vidyo.
