Teliris Unveils 6G Telepresence - the First-Ever Simple, Affordable, Available-Anywhere Solution



    Groundbreaking Sixth Generation Platform Delivers Telepresence Over
General Purpose Networks, Radically Simplifying Acquisition, Deployment and
Operating Costs

    Total of 130 6G Telepresence Rooms Ordered in First 30 Days of General
Availability

    ORLANDO, Fla., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- InfoComm -- Teliris
(www.teliris.com), the leading global provider of agile telepresence and
collaboration, today announced it has redefined the industry with the
unveiling of 6G telepresence, an affordable platform that extends an
uncompromised experience to locations anywhere in the world by reducing
bandwidth and related costs.

    The breakthrough platform, which is a standards-based client-server
software solution, takes telepresence from the heavy, hardware-reliant, high
bandwidth systems typical of other vendors to a light-weight, agile solution
that delivers immersive telepresence through general purpose networks, while
maintaining the natural meeting experience for which Teliris has always been
known.

    "Our new platform removes the barriers that have traditionally restrained
telepresence from widespread adoption," said Marc Trachtenberg, Teliris CEO
and co-founder. "This is the only telepresence platform that allows customers
to move away from monolithic, narrowly-deployable systems requiring costly
high-QoS network connections and cumbersome, latency-saddled multipoint
control units. For the first time, telepresence is as simple and accessible as
email or instant messaging at a fraction of traditional costs."

    "Teliris' 6G platform, with its integrated rate adaption technology,
addresses one of the common challenges associated with telepresence
deployments - the need for expensive, high performance bandwidth," said Ira
Weinstein, Wainhouse Research senior analyst and partner. "The ability to host
immersive telepresence sessions over inexpensive, best effort networks enables
enterprises to deploy in more locations while simultaneously decreasing the
total cost of ownership."

    Central to the Teliris 6G platform is its rate adaption technology that
significantly enhances network efficiency by dynamically managing frame rate,
resolution, image quality and bandwidth. The experience at each endpoint is
independently adjusted as network conditions vary. The platform also allows
for easy deployment without the need for significant rebuilds or complex
network planning. Seamless upgrades are available for all existing Teliris
solutions.

    Teliris also announced today the first available dedicated telepresence
appliance for the desktop. Teliris NanoPersonal Telepresence(TM), which is
priced at under $8,000, features a 22-inch display, is fully compatible with
the entire Teliris Telepresence portfolio and offers a choice of continuous
presence or voice switching modes for multipoint meetings.

    As the longtime telepresence leader in both innovation and deployments,
Teliris is the only option allowing the telepresence experience to be
delivered over general purpose networks. Teliris has the broadest suite of
telepresence products ranging from sub-$8,000 desktop solutions to boardroom
systems. All Teliris solutions offer comprehensive interoperability options
that allow for connection to any system, anywhere and an end-to-end managed
service with a 99+ percent reliability guarantee.
