    • 1. Mohamed Chouat Greg Cronheim Ryan Carwile
    • 2.
      • Cut down on travel by making remote meetings possible
      • Lifelike enough to work without taking away from meeting
      • Must work without significant delay over large geographies
      • Must be easy to use once implemented
        • Easy to schedule and start meetings
      • Affordable and worthwhile
        • Large cost offset by travel savings
    • 3.
      • “ Cisco has developed an innovative solution that creates an "in-person" meeting experience over the converged network. Cisco TelePresence delivers real-time, face-to-face interactions between people and places in their work and personal lives using advanced visual, audio, and collaboration technologies. These technologies transmit life-size, high-definition images and spatial discrete audio. Now it's easier than ever to discern facial expressions for those crucial business discussions and negotiations across the ‘virtual table’.”
        • - technology overview
    • 4. Video 1 Video 2 ( link ) ( link )
    • 5.
      • Three 65” plasma screens
      • Each screen at 720p or 1080p
      • High definition cameras
      • Zero noticeable delay over fiber optic network (worldwide)
      • Life-size images
      • Active screen-switching during multi-point meetings
    • 6.
      • High quality audio microphones placed strategically in room
      • Speakers play sound from where they come from
      • Anti-echo microphone technology
      • Sensitive microphones pick up all audible noise
    • 7.
      • Multimedia screen below TelePresence screens
      • Allows users on both ends to project from laptop onto screen
      • Multimedia presentations (slide shows, videos, etc.) made possible and simple
      • Strategic placement does not detract from meeting

    • 8.
      • Communications engineering allows speed-of-light data travel over fiber optic network
      • Bandwidth requirements (2-3mbps per screen) made possible by fiber optic cables
      • Control systems engineering allows quality of service, data routing/switching, and meeting scheduling/handling
      • Digital systems engineering helps design screens and digital signal processing
    • 9.
      • Work design engineers during design and production stage
      • Manufacturing engineering at lowest cost that companies can afford
      • Ergonomics and facility design engineering comes into play when designing all rooms to look and ‘feel’ the same
      • Quality control engineering with constant feedback, support, and further development
    • 10.
      • Combines knowledge between electrical and computer science engineering
      • Cisco’s routing and switching products support fiber optic network
      • Huge bandwidth requirements met by Cisco solutions
      • Secure networks allow uninterrupted, secure data transfer
      • Software allows automated meeting-scheduling
      • Works with IP Telephony to allow meeting scheduling/call-dialing via IP Phones
    • 11.
      • Environmental engineering helping with solution to cut down on carbon footprint with travel
        • Driving and flying are two largest sources of CO2 emissions
        • One flight California to New York (~5k miles) emits approx. a ton and a half of CO2 per person *
      • Ability to hold meetings remotely can greatly reduce the negative impacts of flight emissions
    • 12.
      • Convergence of voice, data, and video onto the same network is bringing about new technologies that completely change collaboration
      • Globalization increases the need for communication among colleagues and partners worldwide
        • Could mean more than two locations
        • Made possible by Cisco TelePresence multi-point capability
    • 13.
      • Corporate Level: Remote executive meetings
      • Human Resources: job interviews
      • Customer Service: troubleshooting of technically complex products and access to remote experts
      • Sales: presentations and demonstrations of products and services
      • Design: collaboration between teams with expert involvement as needed
      • Consulting: interaction between outside vendors and clients
      • Staff Meetings: regularly scheduled updates of projects between personnel at remote sites
    • 14.
      • In-home use
      • Hospital TelePresence
      • Holographic TelePresence
      • School applications
