Cisco TelePresence Meeting solution is a revolutionary 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. It 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.

"Cisco TelePresence is an innovative, new application that changes the entire realm of communications and collaboration," said Edison Peres, vice president and Chief Go-To-Market Officer for Worldwide Channels at Cisco. "Our TelePresence ATP partners, such as Wire One Communications will help Cisco drive the technology across the chasm by delivering the sales, technical and lifecycle services capabilities customers need to successfully deploy the entire solution."

The Cisco TelePresence Experience

The Cisco TelePresence Meeting solution combines the industry's first ultra-high definition 1080p video and high-quality, wideband spatial audio, imperceptible 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 truly experience the subtleties and nuances delivered by body language, eye contact and facial gestures that make up more than 60 per cent of communications. With Cisco TelePresence, participants focus on the meeting and not the technology.
