Lifesize Communication develops High Definition communication products targeted for the enterprise market. Does the quality really matter? What is the difference between legacy video systems, HD systems, and telepresence systems? A fundamental shift to newer video, audio, and communication technologies makes this possible. We'll discuss a few of these underlying technologies, HD, H.264, AAC, H.323, SIP and some of the challenges that exist in real time communications.
