Telepresence technology - fad or reality?

Telepresence technology - fad or reality? | business | Scoop.it

In a rapidly changing world, companies must embrace technology and respond to globalisation.This could not be more true in the way businesses communicate.

 

Telepresence conferencing is a new way of conducting global meetings without having to be in the physical location itself.  It is one of the many benefits brought through technological change. Giant tv screens project life size images of the people conducting the meeting, with state of the art sound technology it make the people feel as though they are in the very same room.. The location does not matter, it could be Dubai, Doha or London. All that is needed is a good internet connection and two willing parties.

 

It is not likely that video conferencing will eliminate the need for real travel. Nothing is better than being in a location in person, shaking a client's hand and experiencing the feel of a local culture.

 

For most of the time, it does not make sense to purchase this equipment as a company. It can cost as much as $300,000 to implement. It is often better to rent office space or go to a local business center.
