Conferencing Zone Week in Review: Lifesize, Owl Labs, Revolabs & More
Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in the Conferencing Zone this week.
The week started off with the news that India has implemented a new “Tele-Law” that’s meant to give villagers in the rural areas of the country access to legal aid. According to The Hindu, villagers will be able to access the video conferencing service through newly established “Common Service Centers,” which are single-window centers that provide online services in rural areas where Internet connectivity is poor. Even better, the initiative will empower women by educating them in legal matters so that they can assist with issue when needed. Everything you need to know is HERE.
Next up, Lifesize announced this week that it has opened beta testing for its newly redesigned conferencing app. According to the company, the app now has a more intuitive user interface with functionalities to improve the overall video conferencing experience.
