Telepresence Interoperability is Here!

Session Abstract

View the results of this demonstration [pdf]

At the Spring meeting, a challenge was issued to all major Telepresence vendors to come together at this Fall meeting, and demonstrate full interoperability among all of them. This challenge has been accepted and we plan to have demonstrations among LifeSize, Polycom and Tandberg Telepresence systems located across the country and Europe. Live demonstrations will occur during the breaks and lunch on Tuesday, and then a panel discussion will be held on Wednesday to discuss the results and plan next steps. In addition, an introductory overview of Telepresence will be given, explaining what it is, how it fits in with other forms of video conferencing, and who are the major vendors in the field.
