Improvements in high-definition display and audio technology, video switching and compression, quality of service across the Internet, bandwidth affordability, human interface design, and collaboration management software have all contributed to the evolution of advanced video conferencing into "immersive telepresence." This fast-growing industry is now delivering on its old promise to provide a natural-seeming, face-to-face experience that can in many cases eliminate the business need for air travel.

But the business case for telepresence is not limited to saving money on plane tickets, meals, and hotels. Telepresence is all about productivity. Virtual conference room and theater systems can sharpen the focus of busy executives, contribute to faster and smarter management decisions, streamline operations, shorten the product development cycle, and improve the effectiveness of training. Because the latest platforms support almost any endpoint, including the new generation of netbooks, tablets, and smart phones, companies can leverage their investment in telepresence by extending its reach throughout the organization.

Still, significant challenges persist for realizing the full benefits of telepresence. Major issues include interoperability, emerging communication protocols, maintaining or upgrading legacy systems, and designing network infrastructure that can deliver the required high levels of throughput, security, consistency, and availability. Progent can provide the expertise of a senior consultant with years of experience installing, maintaining, and enhancing telepresence systems from top-tier vendors including Cisco/TANDBERG, Polycom, LifeSize, and Radvision and can work with your in-house IT team, your ISP, and your telepresence platform supplier to help your company maximize the business value of your telepresence ecosystem.

Cisco's top-of-the-line telepresence platforms are the Cisco TelePresence System 3010 and 3210 product families, three-screen systems which can work with Cisco's lower-cost modular and single-screen systems.

Cisco's TelePresence Management Suite (TMS) enables centralized control of Cisco's telepresence conferencing and media services infrastructure and endpoints. To simplify scheduling, Cisco offers the TelePresence Management Suite Extension for Microsoft Exchange (TMSXE), which integrates with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and 2010 to provide scheduling capabilities through Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Web Access (OWA).

Progent can provide the online or onsite support of an expert in TANDBERG telepresence technology who has earned TANDBERG TCTE, TCTS, TCTA, and CTSS certifications and can help you manage and support your TANDBERG T3 system or other legacy products from TANDBERG.

Polycom Telepresence Solutions
Polycom Telepresence ConsultantsPolycom has provided video conferencing solutions for more than a decade, beginning with the popular ViewStation product family. After acquiring Destiny Conferencing, Polycom introduced the RealPresence Experience (RPX) system, an immersive telepresence environment including high-definition video displays. Polycom's RealPresence family has expanded to support a full line of video conferencing and telepresence products that includes solutions for immersive theaters, conference rooms, branch offices and home offices, and mobile devices.

Polycom RPX systems use the advanced H.264 High Profile transcoding protocol for video compression and offer connectivity to Cisco TelePresence Systems by supporting Cisco's proprietary Telepresence Interoperability Protocol (TIP).

Polycom's RealPresence platforms feature voice and video Integration with Microsoft Lync Server 2010 and Microsoft Lync 2010 client, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010/2013, and Microsoft Outlook 2010/2013.

LifeSize Telepresence ConsultantsLifeSize, a division of Logitech, addresses the mid-size enterprise market by offering modular telepresence systems sometimes referred to as "telepresence lite."

LifeSize 220 systems can handle two customer-supplied HD displays and two HD cameras and features streaming and recording of point-to-point and multipoint calls.
