I currently have a Lifesize Video Conference using IP only. I am keen to have external parties with ISDN or IP video conference to call in to my system. Anyone has a good recommendation for video conference bridging services that allows for different platform to communicate?

I have seen Persony work in this type of situation. There are many variables though so there is never a guarantee. They have an API and offer excellent support though so I would recommend starting there.

Persony seems to be a more web conferencing similar to webex?

I'm looking for a bridging service that will allow my fixed room video conference to connect in and external party also to dial into the same bridge, which then connects our sites.
I found BT Conferencing http://www.btconferencing.co.uk/  but am looking at more options.

Yes Persony is a web conferencing service, but it includes video conferencing.

I believe it fits all the requirements you are looking for, but it is a different type of service than something like what BT offers.

Since you have a lifesize endpoint, why not get LifeSize Networker. This will allow your EP to connect to the ISDN world.If you need many parties get a PRI line .

Hi debugger144, we don't connect externally very often, so pay per use makes better sense. usually is only between our own sites - getting lifesize networker is not good ROI.

JRSCGI, yes - that's exactly the service we are looking to compare to BT conferencing. Would appreciate if you can give me more options.

We also looked at:
http://www.eyenetwork.com
http://www.vsgi.com
and British Telecom's offering (BTConferencing)

and the latest announcements from Cisco / WebEx are impressive, including a change in their pricing models.
