Vantage Introduces vImmersive i03

First Australian Immersive Conferencing Solution Creates New Ways of Meeting

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - August 20, 2009) - Vantage Systems, leading Australian provider of virtual 'Meeting Solutions' today unveiled vImmersive i03, a complete immersive conferencing solution for small group and one-on-one telepresence meetings.

Optimised for up to three participants, vImmersive i03 integrates Polycom's latest HDX solution (video at 1080p with up to 60fps) with a large plasma screen. Embracing the telepresence principle, the system is set up at optimal height to deliver life-size images and enable true eye-to-eye contact. vImmersive i03 users feel as if they are in the same room, despite being continents apart. Also the advanced, wireless computer connectivity of the system enables them to share and work on documents, images and multimedia files simultaneously, improving operational efficiencies and productivity.

With over 60 vImmersive i03 systems on order, Mark Buckley, CEO of Vantage Systems, is confident that vImmersive i03 will create new ways of meeting.

"As leading provider of audio, video and web conferencing solutions, we are constantly rethinking business communication and what it takes for organisations to be more agile, integrated, and flexible to respond to change and business pressures," said Mark Buckley. "Our research has shown that an average of two people per location participate in a video conference. With vImmersive i03, we have created an immersive conferencing solution that facilitates exactly that."

Based on established, standard-compliant audio and video technology, vImmersive i03 interoperates with all major telepresence studios (six participants / three screens) and HD video conferencing systems. When used with the vMeeting.NET business-to-business exchange it offers intercompany and multipoint capabilities that help organisations to not only scale virtual meetings across their network, but extend the meeting experience as three or more video conferencing systems can participate in a conference.

"In today's economic climate video is becoming the most effective way to communicate and share information. vImmersive i03, placed onto an existing or managed network, combined with an enhanced communication environment and supported by an end-to-end Managed Service, creates a new way of meeting, not only bridging the distance virtually, but collaborating with customers, partners and colleagues," said Mark Buckley.

Availability & Pricing

vImmersive i03 is now available for order through Vantage partners in Asia-Pacific, Europe and America. The suggested price is US$32,000.
