Warmth, Realism and Ease of Use Drive Telepresence Uptake

Telepresence Options Publisher Howard Lichtman took part in a roundtable discussion Nov. 27, 2010, on the future of telepresence with Enterprise Communications Europe, featuring top executives from Cisco, LifeSize, MUSION, Polycom and Teliris.

Practicing what it preaches, Enterprise Communications Europe used telepresence to bring the panel together with the event hosted in Polycom’s City of London facility and participants joining from Washington DC, New York and Austin, Texas. The participants were keen to emphasize how telepresence provides a far warmer, realistic and easy to use environment than traditional conferencing such as audio and video.
