Cisco TelePresence Meeting solution is a new category of products that create live, “face-to-face” meeting experiences over an Internet Protocol (IP) network empowering users to interact and collaborate in ways they could not before.

Cisco’s new technology combines the reach, intelligence and reliability of the network with the simplicity of a telephone interface to deliver an entirely new way for people to meet and collaborate. Cisco TelePresence Meeting is the first application of Cisco TelePresence technology. It was developed by Cisco from the ground up – with 25 patents pending – to revolutionise the way organisations communicate internally and externally with employees, customers and partners.

“Based on the tests we have conducted with the new solution, we are excited about the potential that this new collaboration tool has in helping Yahoo! communicate and collaborate more frequently and effectively with our key stakeholders,” said Mercedes De Luca, vice president of Global Information Technology Infrastructure at Yahoo!.

The system is available in two versions or large and small meetings and combines the industry’s first ultra-high definition 1080p video and high-quality, wideband spatial audio, imperceptible low latency, with comprehensive environmental design.

Meeting participants feel as if they are in the same room together, even though they may be located across the globe. With the ability to see and hear others in ultra-high definition video and wideband spatial audio, users experience subtleties and nuance of conversations.

“The solution for effective face-to-face remote meetings has proven to be an elusive dream for businesses in the past,” said Marthin De Beer, vice president of Cisco’s Emerging Markets Technology Group.

“The system takes advantage of the power and intelligence of an IP network and Unified Communications to facilitate real-time, face-to-face conversations between people around the world to simply and easily increase productivity and speed decision making.”

Cisco TelePresence Meeting solution is available in two models. The Cisco TelePresence 1000 is designed for small group meetings and one-on-one conversations, as well as emerging applications like the “virtual assistant”. The Cisco TelePresence 1000 is ideal for use in executive offices, hotel lobbies, bank branches and medical offices.

The Cisco TelePresence 3000 is designed for meetings of 12 people or more around a virtual table. The product is ideal for executive round-tables and staff meetings, as well as general employee, customer and partner collaborative meetings.
