Teliris, FuzeBox Announce Telepresence Partnership

Telepresence (News - Alert) vendor Teliris has partnered with FuzeBox, which sells visual and mobile collaboration applications, to integrate FuzeBox's online meeting tools in Teliris (News - Alert)-Telepresence environments.

Jeff Cavins, CEO of FuzeBox, said "Together, these market-leading technologies will revolutionize the way people meet over distance."

Teliris officials say this will let users collaborate remotely and more effectively. The company has certified Fuze Meeting for use with Teliris' telepresence offerings -- in fact, they’re Teliris's only collaboration partner

Fuze Meeting's collaboration suite will extend to the computer desktop, iPad, iPhone, Android (News - Alert) tablet or Android phone. The two companies will jointly develop telepresence-specific collaboration tools incorporating the Teliris Research Labs roadmap with FuzeBox's web-based tools for “a lifelike meeting environment,” using SVC-based video.

About a month ago TMC’s (News - Alert) Trupti Kamath wrote that Teliris announced that NYSE Euronext, the operator of financial markets and vendor of trading technologies, selected some Teliris products throughout the company's global operations to facilitate face-to-face visual collaboration.

“We are thrilled that we could deepen our relationship with NYSE Euronext and became their partner of choice in the telepresence arena," Neil Hobbs, Teliris CEO said. "We anticipate that this implementation will have a positive impact on collaboration and meeting effectiveness throughout the NYSE Euronext community."

Earlier this year TMC had the news that London-based Teliris recently hosted a private demonstration in London for His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh, of the latest innovations in telepresence technology.

“I was delighted when HRH expressed an interest in visiting our European Headquarters,” said Martyn Lewis, Teliris European chairman and cofFounder. “Through his focus on telepresence, HRH will help to heighten interest in this critical technology, as well as invigorate the industry overall.”

Throughout the visit, The Duke of Edinburgh viewed Teliris’ technologies which, according to Teliris officials, “deliver a step forward in reducing carbon footprint.”

Known for “his interest in conservation and the natural environment,” according to Buckingham Palace officials, HRH—His Royal Highness—saw how the technology “helps businesses cut travel costs and contributes to building a greener planet.”
