LifeSize uses high definition video conferencing to connect military families
Of all the uses for high definition video conferencing, the one that touches my heart is its use to connect military families around the world.
Those who choose to serve in their nations military make sacrifices in terms of family that most of us can only imagine. Some military personnel are spending 6, 9, even 12 months or more away from the ones they love. Having to miss birthdays, sporting events, school events and even sometimes the birth of a child can be taxing on the spirit.
So the advent of high definition video conferencing gives these brave men and women the opportunity to connect with their families in a very immersive manner. They get to see and hear each other in high definition via the LifeSize video conferencing system. Some call this Telepresence because of its high definition and immersive qualities. It’s almost like being there face to face.
Recently Lifesize provided an opportunity for members of the US military deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan to see their children rehearse and perform in a the play “The Wizard of Oz” at Camp One World in Austin, Texas via LifeSize video conferencing equipment.

Children and parents got to share a moment in their lives that would have been otherwise lost to the necessities of military life. I cannot think of a better use of video conferencing.
