TelePresence (TP) is truly an experience that should be seen in order to be fully appreciated. The Cisco technology is an absolutely amazing collaboration tool and I can only describe the experience of TP as the closest thing to being there – in the same room having a face-to-face conversation with someone. We at Cisco use the technology every single day of our working lives and it is allowing us to collaborate in ways we could not have imagined, in addition to achieving massive savings in time and travel expense.
TP is appearing everywhere and is being used by governments, healthcare, education and businesses of all types. But seeing is believing. You can do that by checking out the Lang and O’Leary Exchange television program – a no-holds-barred discussion on business – seen regularly on the CBC. TP is being used to keep the lively discussion between Amanda Lang and Kevin O’Leary even when Kevin is in his office in Montreal. Check out the video I recorded on the use of TelePresence by the Lang and O’Leary Exchange.
