Videocall Unveils New Features For High Definition Personal Telepresence Service MyPresence

Automated, reservationless high definition gateway service allows MyPresence users to conference on demand with traditional IP telepresence and videoconferencing systems.

CAMBERLEY, SURREY, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 15, 2009) - Videocall, a leading service provider and systems integrator of video collaboration services today announced a significant feature upgrade for its MyPresence personal telepresence service. MyPresence is designed to overcome the challenges facing modern organisations in today's economic climate by extending the corporate video network and empowering employees to use effective face-to-face communication to get the job done wherever they are.

The major new addition to the MyPresence service includes an automated, reservationless gateway enabling on demand conferencing between traditional IP based telepresence and videoconferencing systems and MyPresence users. MyPresence users are able to place a call through to a traditional system in HD quality with one click. This new feature seamlessly integrates MyPresence into the vast base existing telepresence and videoconferencing systems allowing organisations to conference with colleagues, customers, partners and suppliers. This increased reach in turn significantly increases MyPresence return on investment for customers.

With MyPresence able to seamlessly join meetings held using traditional telepresence and videoconferencing systems, remote individuals can join their colleagues, partners, suppliers and customers from wherever they are. Lost productivity associated with being out of the office is a thing of the past."
