Cisco LifeSize room allows you to ditch air travel

Travelling for business is so last year darling - well that's what Cisco is hoping you'll think...

The company that is famous for networking is offering business users the chance to hold that business meeting at home or in the office via its LifeSize video conferencing kit.

Featured in 24, the LifeSize system from Cisco starts at £3499 for the new LifeSize Express system, which according to the company provides a simple "telepresence experience" for small to medium size rooms to the top of the range offering of £22,999 for the LifeSize Conference system.

The flagship product is a 4-monitor, 3-camera system that gives the "mirror image" room meaning you never have to get on a plane, train or automobile again.

LifeSize Room is based on the latest H.264 standard and a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels at 30 frames per second.
