The new Unity Series---the LifeSize Unity 50 and LifeSize Unity 500---are all in one units that are HD.
LifeSize's pitch is that the Unity systems can just be plugged into any room without worrying about microphone placement, furniture and room makeovers.
The move from LifeSize comes as both Polycom and Cisco have reported turmoil in the telepresence market.
Cisco CEO John Chambers said:
Our telepresence business for example historically had tremendous success in the public sector and enterprise markets. As we saw continued pressure in public sector and enterprise spending we also saw the impact on our telepresence results.
If the telepresence market is becoming more cost conscious, LifeSize's all-in-one play could work. The LifeSize Unity 50 starts at $3,999 and the Unity 5000 starts at $19,999.
