Cisco Delivers on Commitment to Advance Telepresence Interoperability Across Its Portfolio and with Third-Party Systems
Posted on Tuesday, June 8, 2010
LAS VEGAS and SAN JOSE, Calif., June 8, 2010 – At the InfoComm conference in Las Vegas today, Cisco announced it is fulfilling commitments to deliver immersive, multiscreen interoperability between Cisco and Tandberg TelePresence systems, and with other third-party systems, by integrating the Telepresence Interoperability Protocol (TIP) on Cisco's newly acquired Tandberg TelePresence Server. This interoperability solution, which will be commercially available in late July, helps enable multi-screen, high-definition video collaboration between all major telepresence vendors. The announcement comes just weeks after the close of Cisco's Tandberg acquisition.

Cisco also introduced a host of other offerings in an effort to deliver the most comprehensive set of collaboration choices for customers. The new Movi for Mac client and other Movi enhancements deliver business-quality mobile video collaboration to Mac and PC users, and bridge standards-based video collaboration offerings for mixed Mac-PC environments, such as education and health care institutions. Movi is also the first Cisco TelePresenceTM product to integrate ClearPath, a new set of technologies that improve resolution for video users on suboptimal networks by minimizing the effects of packet loss. For smaller and midsize customers, the Cisco TelePresence Commercial Express solution combines three infrastructure components – Cisco TelePresence Manager, Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch and Cisco TelePresence Recording Server – onto one server to enable easier deployment, simpler licensing and a faster realization of productivity benefits. These enhancements extend the reach of Cisco TelePresence to provide access for everyone, everywhere, and to power the new way of working.
