Imago installs telepresence for customer demos20 August 2010
Distributor Imago Group has installed dedicated suites based on Polycom’s ATX immersive telepresence solution at locations in the UK and France. The offices in Thatcham, Berkshire, and Imago’s French subsidiary in Plaisir, west of Paris, both feature indentical ATX units and Benchmark furniture.
The installations were designed to create a comfortable, practical and elegant environment dedicated to videoconferencing.
Imago Group is now inviting reseller partners to use the new facilities for customer demonstrations.
"Unless you have been involved in a telepresence meeting, it is hard to appreciate just how true to life they can be," said Ian Vickerage, managing director of Imago. "The key to immersive telepresence is that it should feel as if all the participants are in the same room. The dimensions enable participants to speak with and see the body language of others, without any concerns about the technology that allows it to happen."
