Integrates with all Lifesize video endpoints for seamless single button recording and streaming.

Perfect for recording video calls or in standalone mode, the video is instantly available on the Video Centre portal to be shared publically or kept private to a group of particular users. Also popular for compliance where calls must be recorded and kept for a period of time.

Lifesize UVC Video Centre can be used to webcast to hundreds or thousands of viewers using their desktops, laptops or mobile devices. Suited to large town hall meetings with web chat or embedded as a fully public webcast, UVC Video Centre performs 24/7.
