TELEPRESENCE OPTIONS | Telepresence and Visual Collaboration Trends 2011

TELEPRESENCE AND VISUAL COLLABORATION TRENDS 2011 By Howard S. Lichtman President – Human Productivity Lab “The only thing constant in life is change” - François de la Rochefoucauld

video connections have multiplied what you can do and who you can reach with a visual collaboration endpoint. Companies, schools, governments and people are able to connect with each other like never before.

F

or decades videoconferencing was essentially a stagnant technology. It enjoyed incremental improvements in quality and reliability, but except for small-scale experiments like Confravision (a telepresence environment circa 1970 built around 20-inch black and white television sets, broadcast cameras and ashtrays for every participant), it didn’t change much. The format of camera, codec, and one or two screens remained the standard for decades. In the past five years the change has been explosive. Multi-screen, multi-codec group systems have proliferated exponentially. From less than 50 rooms in 2005 to an estimated 11,600 in 2012. And the innovation just keeps coming: video walls, 100-inch screens, beam splitters, and transparent foils for life-size, on-stage telepresence experiences. Once limited to dedicated video appliances, video codecs now run on PCs, laptops, smartphones, and tablets as downloadable software that is starting to be tightly integrated under the unified communication umbrella with voice telephony, presence, and data collaboration. Telepresence robotics has brought mobility to remote video (and a new way to fetch scones from the coffee shop as well). Corporate and carrier video networks that once only connected the headquarters with branch offices now use telepresence and video exchanges to link partners, vendors and customers. As we move firmly into 2011, here’s a look at some of the trends shaping telepresence and visual collaboration. The Growing Utility of Visual Collaboration The biggest and most important trend in telepresence and visual collaboration is the growing utility of video. Instantaneous, high-quality

Effective Visual Collaboration

Let’s take a look at some of the specifics that are driving universal connectivity: Interoperability of telepresence and videoconferencing systems The following factors are driving the growing interoperability of video systems. • Merger and Acquisition: Cisco’s acquisition of TANDBERG had a multi-faceted impact on interoperability: • It brought together two of the largest players in visual collaboration who developed a shared interest in connecting their existing systems and legacy customers. • The merger prompted the European Union to mandate opening interoperability under the Telepresence Interoperability Protocol. The EU even appointed a trustee to ensure compliance. • It freed up former partner RADVISION to scramble for new business trading on one of its strongest features: The compatibility with Cisco developed during their partnership. • Standards Bodies – The founding of the Unified Communications Interoperability Forum brought together some of the industry’s largest players to focus on interoperability while the IMTC continues its important work of testing and certifying endpoints. • Customers – I have yet to meet one yet who doesn’t want interoperability and isn’t ticked when he or she doesn’t get it. • Software based codecs – Interoperability in the future will be the instantaneous download of the codec and data collaboration software of your choice.

Effective Visual Collaboration - A Teliris mockup of a future version of their existing InterACT table computing platform where documents and video can accessed from the network, shared from participant to participant globally by “pushing” them across the table, while network intelligence provides automatic translation based on the language of the destination location.

We use the phrase “Effective Visual Collaboration” to denote a more sophisticated and natural way of working with data between remote locations. We believe this will be the next major evolution of telepresence group system environments as the incremental cost of the improved capabilities can be absorbed into the spend on the gear. We believe the ROI will come from a number of areas: •

Capturing and immediately digitizing the creative process through the integration of tools like interactive whiteboards, table computing and digital flipcharts. Brainstorming, hand-generated graphics and annotation can be more seamlessly integrated into collaborative sessions where it is immediately digitized into a digital workflow. • Being able to more share information between remote locations visually improves comprehension for participants, especially visual learners. A number of effective visual collaboration tools have already come into the telepresence market mostly as optional add-ons. More and more of these tools will become standard and seamlessly integrated into the environments and workflow.


Telepresence and Visual Collaboration Trends 2011 | TELEPRESENCE OPTIONS multiple platforms ranging from Windows Media to the iPad. The company has also developed Show and Share, best described as “Secure YouTube for the Enterprise with the ability to store and embed video content yet password protect to meet regulatory requirements as well. The application lets users can search a piece of video content for a specific soundbite by keyword and immediately view the section where it was discussed among other capabilities. The Teliris InterACT flipchart provides the digital functionality of a traditional flipchart with the ability to post and annotate on virtual pages “stuck” to the wall in every connected location.

Interconnectivity of Networks To keep the participant immersed, telepresence needs flawless video. This requires private QoS networks that guarantee latency, packet loss and jitter. For a long time networks functioned like private islands of IP, with different QoS mechanisms and IP address plans. Over the last few years these islands have become archipelagos. By launching telepresence and video exchanges that connect different enterprise and carrier networks, a dozen different carriers and managed service providers have allowed video to flow freely between partners, vendors, and customers. These exchanges pop up at such major telecom hubs and meet-me facilities as Telx and IP-V Gateways at 60 Hudson in New York and Glowpoint plugged into the Equinix Ethernet Exchange. Even more exciting, these telepresence and videoconferencing exchanges are beginning to connect to each other, exponentially increasing the number of potential connections. Some of the exchanges include Teliris and Iformata; AT&T and BT; Telmex and AT&T; Glowpoint and Tata; Tata and BT; Tata and Telefonica and BCS and Iformata to name but a few. Video Network Intelligence Video Network Intelligence is a term I am using to refer to the ability of a network to understand/transcode/transcribe/classify/metatag/ catalog/secure/manage/distribute and otherwise make video content from any source more findable, accessible and usable in enterprise and educational environments. Sources may include telepresence and visual collaboration environments, flip cameras, traditional videography, broadcast/narrowcast capture and more. Cisco has been at the forefront of this idea with products that can take a live video stream, digitize it, transcribe the audio to text on the fly, add the appropriate lower thirds with a predefined logo and/or titles, meta-tag the video with key concepts mentioned in the audio, and then transcode the video for streaming delivery to

Cisco Pulse, another offering, scans content on a network to determine who the experts are in a particular topic and enable instant collaboration. The application can automatically notify an employee about new content matching his or her job or interests. B2C Telepresence — Retail and Call Center Applications The leading wave of Business-to-Consumer Telepresence and Video is hitting the shore and arriving in two flavors.

TelePresence Tech’s 3D HD Kiosk

Retail: In-store retail telepresence kiosks and sit-down consultations with subject matter experts. The problem here is that making specialized knowledge available in dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of retail locations, bank branches, insurance offices, or doctor’s offices comes with a price and the subject matter expert’s specialized knowledge may only be used a couple of times a day. One solution that is developing is concentrating subject matter experts in video call centers where they can support multiple retail locations yet still provide a personalized

experience through a video kiosk or sit down consultative experience. AT&T has recently trialed high definition video kiosks in its retail locations and Bank of America has trialed using video to make financial advisors available in its branch locations are two high profile examples. We believe the technology to evolve in a variety of ways: • Better Front Ends – Companies like DVE and TelePresence Tech offer beamsplitter display technology where remote agents seam to float in mid-air can double as an augmented reality display to showcase • Better Back Ends – Companies like Vyopta are developing back-end systems for retail video workflow. The systems provide the video equivalent of a PBX hunt group where calls can be routed to a pool of available agents with the ability to transfer to other subject matter experts and integrate with CRM software. The software can also leverage the capabilities of the display to play video content for a prospect or digital signage. • Shared Infrastructure – It doesn’t make sense for 15 different manufactures to each have their own video kiosk in every Best Buy, but for each of them to share the costs of a video kiosk program probably does. We expect a shared model with 1-2 kiosks capable of reaching multiple vendors to win out. Home Telepresence: As more and more consumers adopt high-quality video-calling capabilities through televisions, PCs, laptops, and tablets, expect more and more businesses to address the market. You’ll initially see video call centers deployed to reach more affluent households for high-ticket items where perceived trust is a factor and the high cost of the product or service justifies the expense of setting up a call center. The early adopters will likely include insurance, real estate, private client wealth management, personal electronics and high-end retail. Trends: Pro-sumer Gear, Home/Office Studios, Home Theatre Integration Drivers: Integration of cameras/codecs into TVs/Set top boxes, video culture, novelty marketing and brand differentiation


TELEPRESENCE OPTIONS | Telepresence and Visual Collaboration Trends 2011 Community of Interest Networks (CoINs) Telepresence CoINs which join disparate organizations under common interests are forming. One example is ConnectFN (From the NetRoadshow team) which has launched a telepresence financial Community of Interest Network in Q2 that will connect companies with institutional investors, mutual funds and leading investment banks to improve the Investor Relations process. Right now it has been estimated that the average public company CFO spends 25%+ of their time on deal and/or non-deal roadshows and other IR activities. Reduce their personal burden in addition to all the other benefits that telepresence offers and we think more will buy... Expect to see more and more telepresence applications like this that will drive adoption. Next Generation Codecs enable video over the Internet – The Rise of SVC For the past 10 years H.264/MPEG 4 AVC has been the dominant standard in the telepresence and videoconferencing universe. That dominance has been slipping over the past three years as a previously unknown company called Layered Media emerged from stealth mode. Led by RADVISION veteran Ofer Shapiro, the company changed its name to Vidyo and brought a hitherto unknown annex called Scaled Video Coding (SVC) to the party. SVC splits a highdefinition video stream into multiple streams that perform better over best-effort networks like the Internet. When the video stream runs into congestion, the codec can drop one or more “layers,” which might scale back resolution or frame rate but will otherwise maintain fluid video and, in the process, the ongoing sense of immersion. SVC uses 10 to 15 percent more bandwidth than H.264 AVC, but its stability and quality over best effort networks (like the Internet itself) more than compensates for the increased overhead. In fact, the cost savings are substantial because you can now run quality intra-company video over lower priority network connections. You can even use best-effort Internet connections (especially if all your intra-company sites are on the same network provider) and acceptable inter-company video (Some restrictions apply!) The Coming Proliferation of Video Network Operations Centers (VNOC) A Video Network Operations Center is a dedicated team that monitors and manages telepresence and videoconferencing calls for a given company or many companies as an outsourced managed service provider. A VNOC handles all aspects of reliable video operations for a company: first line support for end-users having trouble, room reservations, equipment, network, exchange troubleshooting, and security procedures for opening up inter-company connections with partners.

Iformata is also the provider of choice for global enterprise firms, equipment manufacturers, and toptier carriers for cloud based managed service offerings. With a customer base touching every continent, Iformata’s wide range of managed service options give customers an unparalleled range of service models to support their ever changing video management needs. With U.S. based offices in Ohio and Virginia and international offices in Mumbai and Bangalore, India along with Stavanger, Norway, Iformata is the industry’s longest-serving provider of managed services and video network operations. Through international peering relationships with major providers and other VNOC suppliers, Iformata’s Telepresence Exchange® is a leading video communications network connecting global Fortune 500 firms within a highly managed architecture. Iformata’s VNOC Symphony® platform consists of customer facing tools, VNOC facing tools, and backoffice systems. Collectively these systems work together as a multitenant platform providing immediate and automated services for desktop, group, and immersive telepresence systems. Complex call flow logic may be modified at any time and applied to individual systems or groups of systems based on administrator changes to a rules engine. The VNOC Symphony platform removes human involvement in video meeting choreography and call management. With more than 450 patent claims across multiple patents, the product portfolio and platform performs every aspect of managing an enterprises fleet of video systems, including call setup, intelligent framing, automated monitoring, event correlation, and call tear down – even for disparate immersive telepresence systems. Today people use many diverse tools to manage their schedules: Outlook, Lotus, PDAs, etc. These tools provide a simple window into the Symphony platform, making it immediate and easy to use today’s familiar technology to launch impromptu or scheduled audio and video meetings, including Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, Apple’s iPhone and iPod, web interfaces, Google’s Android, Apple’s iPad, IVR interfaces and others. For example, consider the user that schedules a meeting using Microsoft Outlook; based on the start time, VNOC Symphony selects the optimal video bridge, dials each endpoint, adds an audio dial-in if applicable, framing each endpoint. Next, another user

may attend the same conference, and if permissions allow, remove a city and add two more – while each site reframes seamlessly. With no VNOC operators involved, all of these requests are driven by users employing their tool of choice, allowing back-office systems to manage the complex operations needed to seamlessly reflect changing user requirements. The VNOC Symphony platform is the world’s leading enterprise management system for video and telepresence deployments. VNOC Symphony — Corporate Video Logisitics Simplified. Iformata’s Video Network Operations Center, or VNOC — provides organizations with a wide range of managed service support models.

The result is a VNOC in a Box® – a VNOC Symphony solution. Service providers and enterprises can now utilize the VNOC Symphony Enterprise SP solution to automate the management of telepresence and video endpoints. The processes and technologies necessary to manage a video infrastructure, can be costly and cumbersome, causing you to focus on areas outside of your core competency. As the longest-standing telepresence managed services provider, we've had ample time to learn what works, how it works, and what works best. At Iformata, telepresence and video conferencing is not only what we do, but all we do. Iformata — redefining VNOC services.

Key Executives MIKE PASCOE

With a goal of improving the way we work without changing how we work and of extending the power of high definition (HD) video conferencing and visual collaboration beyond the board room and executive suite, Magor developed the HDWorkPlace family of Magor TeleCollaboration solutions.

President and CEO

DAN RUSHELEAU EVP Product Development

CHRIS CHARLEBOIS CFO

RICK MISKIMAN VP Sales and Business Development

Designed to dramatically improve the effectiveness of video-based meetings, Magor’s HDWorkPlace solutions seamlessly integrate advanced collaboration capabilities into a 1080p video conferencing experience that can be securely delivered over best effort IP network connections like the Internet, without overburdening the network or increasing IT costs.

KEN DAVISON VP Marketing

Key Customers • Mitel OEMs the Magor TeleCollaboration HDWorkPlace family Select Retailers include: • Scalar Decisions (Canada) • DRV Group (UK) • Saudi Delta Company (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia)

Visual Collaboration: Recognizing that some of the most important assets an enterprise has are the files, applications and toolkits that reside on each individual’s desktop, Magor uniquely and elegantly brings these assets into each TeleCollaboration session. Unlike legacy video conferencing systems that treat collaboration as an add on, Magor TeleCollaboration systems supply the entire collaborative experience – delivering immersive voice, high definition video and comprehensive desktop sharing in a single, easy to use system. With instant drag-and-drop sharing of computer desktops (any mix of PC, Mac, Linux, UNIX or Solaris systems) through an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), Magor’s visual collaboration capabilities allow permitted participants to see, control and edit shared files and documents in real time. So, instead of “talk now, do later”, users conduct working visual collaboration sessions that allow them to make decisions, get work done and produce results more quickly. Peer-to-Peer Communications Architecture: Instead of an MCU-centric design, where all endpoint media streams are mixed and rebroadcast and each participant’s visual experience is dictated by the MCU, Magor’s flexible peer-to-peer communication architecture allows each Magor endpoint to operate independently of the others. This means that users can tailor their visual experience to their own needs

– choosing exactly what they see and how they see it, moving and resizing their own video and collaboration windows in real time and panning and zooming images to suit their own needs and preferences. Also, new participants to a Magor TeleCollaboration session can be added spontaneously and participants can drop out, with no effect on the experience of the other participants. The peer-to-peer approach also delivers the low latency required by HD video communications sessions. Advanced Scalable Video (SVC++): Recognizing that legacy video conferencing and telepresence systems don’t adequately address the impact that high definition video can have on networks, Magor applied its IP networking heritage and video encoding expertise to break existing video conferencing paradigms. The result is a truly immersive high definition visual collaboration system that acts like a good network citizen and doesn’t require complex, dedicated engineered networks. Magor introduces flexible video compression processes that can adapt in real-time to varying network conditions and end-user behavior. By extending basic scalability principles with innovative video segmentation and network adaptation processes that optimize the key areas of the picture and the required network resources, Magor TeleCollaboration protects the network from the potential negative impacts of video and overcomes the challenges of delivering 1080p video over best effort network connections such as the Internet. Magor’s approach to traffic conditioning, including the use of hierarchical weighted scheduling and aggregate traffic shaping at each endpoint assures a smoother bandwidth consumption profile, making Magor TeleCollaboration on IP networks a more predictable application. Interoperability: Magor has validated interoperability with legacy video conferencing and telepresence systems from all the major players in the market.

Scheduling: The service offers a range of options for session scheduling including an automated portal and a telephone reservation service. Reporting: Routine reports on utilization, billing and service faults are readily available for customers and sales team review. Remote monitoring: Verizon Business is particularly skilled at remotely monitoring the private IP network and can also monitor the operational status of relevant CPE. They offer an integrated NOC capability where networkbased trouble tickets initiated by the VNOC are forwarded to the private IP NOC for resolution. Security: By design, all endpoints are supported on the Verizon Business private IP network uniquely assigned to the supported customer. Verizon Business then provides standardized physical and IP-layer practices, including firewall services for privacy and traffic isolation and SBCs for SIP and H.323-specific firewall traversal. Exchange: Verizon Business offers an intercompany service capability. Interoperability: Although initially available only for Cisco TelePresence customers, Verizon Business plans to aggressively expand to address the service management needs of customers using Polycom, TANDBERG or other standards-based vendors.

Vidyo Products: At the heart of the Vidyo implementation is the VidyoRouter™ which manages up to 100 concurrent HD multi-point VidyoLine™ connections in real time. The VidyoRouter™ doesn’t transcode video streams like traditional MCUs from competitive solutions but, instead, intelligently routes video streams to individual endpoints based upon its current bandwidth, processing power, and requested resolution dynamically throughout the call. This revolutionary approach to multi-point video conferencing enables Vidyo to deliver dynamic rate and resolution matching as well as error localization so that endpoints with a range of capabilities and varying quality network connections can be connected in the same conference with each performing up to its maximum capability. Additionally, since all of the encode and decode functions are performed at the endpoints, individuals can control their video layout independently of all other users in the conference. Since routing is a substantially less processing intensive than transcoding, the VidyoRouter™ also eliminates the delay in the video stream that has traditionally hindered natural collaborative experiences in MCU-based solutions.

The VidyoGateway™ provides interoperability with H.323 and SIP based endpoints and MCUs. The VidyoGateway™ is implemented as an edge device of the Vidyo network so that the SVC enabled endpoints continue to benefit from the VidyoRouter™ architecture while the H.323 and SIP participants receive the transcoded video that they need.

VidyoPortal™ is a web-based application that provides access, authentication and administration to users and administrators alike. Accessible via URL, the portal allows administrators to configure and enable user privileges and set policies across the organization. Users visit the portal to login to their account and initiate or join a conference in progress. VidyoRoom™ is a portfolio of three codecs: The HD-50/100 can encode and decode up to 720P at 30 frames per second. It supports dual monitors to display conference participants on one monitor and shared applications on the other, with a maximum bandwidth rated at 2 Mbps. The HD-220 encodes and decodes either 1080p at 30 frames per second or 720p at 60 frames per second. Dual monitors and a maximum bandwidth of 6 Mbps are supported. VidyoDesktop™ is the Macintosh and Windows) client that is downloaded and installed automatically the first time a user logins into the VidyoPortal™, either as a registered user or as a guest.

Company Mission: Deliver innovative WAN services that improve the quality and frequency of customer collaboration, decision-making and operations. Network Overview: Virtela takes a unique approach to enterprise WAN services. Within a network of Regional Policy Centers, Virtela is able to seamlessly integrate and aggregate hundreds of the world’s access and backbone infrastructures around the world. The company’s Global Service Fabric brings the network of RPC resources to deliver optimal performance, resiliency and reach through interconnectivity to more than 5,000 access POPs covering 190+ countries. Yet that global reach is focused and enabled to address the needs of each enterprise customer whether MPLS-oriented, as part of a private VPN using frame relay, ATM or private lines services or through an IP VPN provided directly over a network of high-speed secure Internet connections. The company also recently launched its Enterprise Cloud Services (ESC) architecture that enables delivery of next generation services from 50 local cloud centers around the world, positioning it well for swiftly activating future cloud-based collaboration services. Services Overview: Many Virtela customers choose to implement their telepresence implementation as a realtime service within a converged enterprise MPLS or IP VPN WAN, where the Virtela infrastructure leverages one or more unified access circuits for both real-time telepresence and or voice and near-real-time computing traffic. Other customers choose a separation of traffic, a dedicated-to-key applications network design so as to assure security, performance and quality on each of two or more networks. To address these disparate enterprise needs, Virtela provides two powerful video networking-optimized solutions for customers.

Services Detail: The Managed HD Conference Room and the Desktop Video Services each enable converged or dedicated MPLS-class connectivity and security from virtually any location across the globe - on private networks or via VPNs over the Internet. The company’s global network infrastructure supports delay-sensitive applications like Video Conferencing and VoIP by prioritizing traffic through the Class of Service level. Plus, VirtelaVideo is integrated with Virtela VPN solutions, assuring enterprises that their telepresence media traffic is protected within an MPLS or IP VPN infrastructure. Going even further, Virtela’s network is optimized to deliver packets in sequence, removing the processing burden from the customers’ routers. It also provides global SLAs so customers never have to worry about the quality or delivery of your video service. Customers can engineer their networks for broadcast or HD quality with each service securely and fully managed by Virtela network engineering, security and operations professionals. Virtela also offers its Secure Video Extranet service that enables inter-company telepresence and videoconferencing. Customers can leverage a mix of connections, depending on their business goals and networking strategy (see Virtela Solutions Snapshot).

CLINTON GATEWOOD VP Business Development

Company Mission:

Critical Advantages:

Become a market leader by offering the highest quality and most affordable telepresence products and services.

High Quality Experience - All Vu TelePresence™ systems incorporate industry standard H.264 video compression technologies with forward error correction and matrix-based color space conversion to reduce external noise, image pixilation and other presentation defects and otherwise assure a very high quality visual experience at 720p and 30 frames per second. The company also prides itself on delivering excellent audio quality through the supplied microphones and speakers.

Simple and Reliable UI for Control and System Operation – With the power of an instant messaging directory metaphor – available users and units are shown in a list window; users simply click to activate a session – and with a wireless keyboard and mouse instead of an unreliable and awkward infrared controller wand, users are assured of always-on reliable and intuitive control of their telepresence sessions.

Advanced Applications – Every unit ships with built in support for advanced features that are typically priced as extras including multiparty conferencing, screen sharing – which also works as a web conferencing service, session recording and archival storage of telepresence recordings.

Efficient Bandwidth Utilization – leverage a proprietary technology for rate balancing, matrix based color space conversion and advanced forward error correction the Vu TelePresence systems are able to deliver surprisingly excellent quality at 768 kbps or less.

Special Financing Options – Vu TelePresence offers two financing solutions that customers will find compelling. Firstly, customers can choose to purchase the systems they need for their deployment at prices that are often 50% of the equivalent price from leading brands and resellers. Secondly, customers can choose to conserve cash through a lease arrangement of the implementation where monthly payments are typically less than $100/system/month. This leasing feature alone brings the portfolio into the budget range of many field sales executives who might prefer to use a unit in their home office and a unit in the customers’ office to increase the telepresence frequency of routine communications with their customers.

Vu Tele Presence Pro: Vu TelePresence™ Pro is a solution designed for telepresence conferences between as many as 5 locations. The system incorporates software drivers to enable 1 or 2 screens, includes a PTZ camera, microphone, speakers and a codec server. Customers supply their own large-format flat screen TV. The Pro is ideal for home offices, individual practices, conference rooms, remote workers, and the executive suite. Vu Tele Presence Premiere: Vu TelePresence™ Premiere is designed for a larger collaboration group through its interface with a greater number of presentation monitors. A maximum of 3 monitors are supported. This unit comes with a TV mounted optical zoom camera, HD TVs, speakers, microphone and enables up to 5 party conferencing. The Premiere is ideal for boardrooms, meeting rooms, and classroom environments.

VNOC Symphony Platform

The VNOC Symphony® platform provides the first ubiquitous toolset in the industry to offer fully automated VNOC® services to organizations regardless of their size. The VNOC Symphony platform consists of customer facing tools, VNOC facing tools, and back-office systems. Built on a web-oriented architecture, VNOC Symphony’s framework easily interacts with current and emerging interface technologies for pervasive and mobile real-time access of any meeting resource.

Customer Facing

VNOC Symphony provides users the option of scheduling meetings or requesting an immediate conference with no notice. This process is supported from many interfaces, including Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, an intuitive web interface, an animated Microsoft Silverlight interface, Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android, Apple’s iPad, and others to come. Using these interfaces, users can select rooms for their conference. For example, launching a ten city conference would require a traditional VNOC 15 to 30 minutes of setup time. Using VNOC Symphony, the user selects the cities from a list of available rooms, and watches the conference sites appear and frame automatically by the VNOC Symphony service regardless of the endpoint manufacturer. A full featured scheduling toolbox allows users to see photographs of each meeting room, add participants to each site, choose MCU framing, view time zones of each location, and modify in-progress meetings, among other features. An express scheduler widget lets users quickly create a reservation with as few keystrokes as possible, listing the last ten meetings and ten sites as possible quick start selections. A meet-now widget enables users to request immediate video services for sites selected, whether by web interface or mobile application.

VNOC Facing

At the heart of the platform is VNOC Conductor SM, a runbook engine which polices meeting setup, maintenance, and teardown in an enterprise environment according to an organization’s process rules. Numerous parameters are configurable via VNOC Symphony’s VNOC Composer SM , which is a drag and drop graphical interface for rapid dynamic workflow generation. VNOC Composer ensures departmental or global directives are followed,

including setup times, startup messaging, teardown messaging, in-progress meeting modification messaging, custom messaging, remedial functions, escalation processes, email notifications, chargebacks, conflict management, and many other processes that regulate a complex enterprise deployment. The Digital Airline® widget plots live conferences on a geo-spatial interactive map, showing all connected meetings graphically. VNOC Producer SM executes against requests from VNOC Symphony, governing conference transactions according to a flexible process environment, managing both infrastructure and endpoints, providing automated meeting connections for accurate, repeatable, and immediate conference choreography. The logic in VNOC Producer is a well implemented process instructed by VNOC Conductor, the communication hub and process implementation logic that VNOC Symphony encapsulates. Based on these network engines, VNOC Producer understands how to filter and manage both routine and highly unique situations. VNOC Producer, as part of the VNOC Symphony platform, provides the first ubiquitous toolset in the industry to offer fully automated VNOC services to organizations, regardless of their size.

VISUAL COLLABORATION SYSTEM

www.BrightCom.com BrightCom Call BrightCom for details: 877-483-9737

Overview BrightCom designs and manufactures fully integrated, telepresence and video conferencing solutions.

Key Features •

Processor based infrastructure combining video, audio and data conferencing

Connects a wider variety of participants: BrightCom endpoints, SIP enabled endpoints and web cameras on remote laptops and desktops

Interactive web conferencing and data sharing feature

Displays up to 16 video broadcasts with unlimited meeting participants

Automatic multi-screen management for video and data according the user preference

Real-time adjustable bandwidth

One touch software updates

Telepresence and Video Conferencing Infrastructure: Every BrightCom implementation of telepresence, room video conferencing, modular or desktop systems benefits from the system-wide management and coordination service provided by an enterprise class conferencing infrastructure called the Visual Collaboration System (VCS). The VCS can interconnect BrightCom’s Lumina Telepresence, ClearView Video Conferencing solutions, SIP enabled telepresence and video conferencing solutions, and web cameras on remote desktops or laptops. The VCS integrates several functions of a video conferencing infrastructure into a single network appliance. The VCS capabilities include system management services, meeting scheduling, firewall NAT traversal, security, network operations services and web conferencing services including data sharing and collaborative markup of data. Integrated Conferencing for Smarter Communication: The VCS has enhanced media and document support enabling businesses to easily share and edit a wider range of data. Microsoft® Office files, PowerPoint® presentations, Adobe Acrobat® PDF files, high resolution images and video clips can be shared and edited. Unlike other vendors who broadcast data as video, the VCS presents data in its native format or files allowing users to interact with their data on a higher level and utilize lower amounts of bandwidth. Meeting participants can leverage the VCS to remote control other participant’s desktops, cooperatively markup data and pass control of the meeting to any participant. Other features including interactive white boards, audience polling and instant messaging add to the teamwork and productivity vital for successful businesses.

See their faces and understand their ideas: Alongside multiple data broadcasts, the VCS can display up to 16 high definition and/or standard definition video broadcasts with an unlimited number of meeting participants broadcasting from desktop web cams, conference rooms or telepresence suites around the world. Each telepresence or video conferencing endpoint will automatically adjust the video and data broadcasts to fit the meeting’s contents and participant’s video.

The Future of Conferencing: “The telepresence and video conferencing industry is lacking the next steps towards a higher level of collaboration. Data in video conferencing today is mostly locked up in H.239 data streaming. The VCS gives businesses a more interactive conferencing experience allowing both data and live video to be equally important to get the job done. Future versions of the VCS will be able to increase the everyday applications of telepresence, such as augmented reality and live video editing, for a more robust experience that merges data with live video like never before.” Bob McCandless, CEO of BrightCom


MAGOR’S VISUAL COLLABORATION

www.Magorcorp.com Magor Communications

Overview A significant differentiator for Magor TeleCollaboration is the company’s approach to visual collaboration, which can dramatically improve the effectiveness of video-based meetings.

Key Features • Allows participants to easily access, share and manipulate the files, applications and

Magor Communications’ innovative visual collaboration capabilities allow participants to easily access, share and manipulate the files, applications and other information assets that users keep on their personal computers. These assets are often critical to the success of a visual collaboration experience. Magor’s implementation allows users to easily and seamlessly access and share these important assets during a visual collaboration experience, immediately enabling documents and files to be worked on in a collaborative manner, with no need for any specialized training. With instant drag-and-drop sharing of computer desktops (any mix of PC, Mac, Linux, UNIX or Solaris systems) through an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), Magor’s advanced collaboration capabilities allow permitted participants to see, control and edit shared files and documents in real time. So, instead of “talk now, do later”, users conduct working visual collaboration sessions that allow them to make decisions, get work done and produce results more quickly than other systems.

document-editing control to other Magor TeleCollaboration participants or to remote participants. Collaboration sessions are secure since the files being shared never actually leave the owner’s desktop – the owner maintains the file. This approach helps eliminate the possibility of multiple, perhaps incomplete or incorrect versions of a document floating around a network and reduces the risk of documents or files inadvertently being released or shared

outside the group.

other information assets that users keep on their personal computers. • Enables documents and files to be worked on in a collaborative manner, with no need for any specialized training • Instant drag-and-drop sharing of computer desktops (any mix of PC, Mac, Linux, UNIX or Solaris systems) through an intuitive GUI • Permitted participants can see, control and edit shared files and documents in real time. • Impressive presentation resolution – 1080p

Unlike the clunky requirements for legacy H.239 services where users have to bring their laptops to a meeting and plug them in for a low resolution presentation to remote telepresence locations, Magor users simply drag an icon of their computer desktop into the workplace area. This instantly brings their desktop into the visual collaboration session – no fiddling with plugs or connections or enduring low resolution presentations.

at 30 frames per second • Collaboration sessions are secure since the files being shared never actually leave the owner’s desktop – the owner maintains the file.

Each participant has individual control over how they view that shared collaboration material. They can scale the document window, larger or smaller, move it to the left or right of the presenter’s image to fit their information needs and viewing preferences – there is no MCU limiting or controlling what each participant can see. Most importantly, users can pass

Magor’s visual collaboration capabilities enable convenient, natural and spontaneous shared collaboration in 1080p. No monitor real estate needs to be dedicated to document presentations, and users don’t need a separate login ID or monthly service to share a document. They also don’t need to bring their PCs and power cables to the meeting. More collaboration. More productivity. Period.


HAIVISION FURNACETM

Virtela.net/managedvideo Virtela Private

Overview Virtela Secure Video Extranet enables businesses to privately connect to video endpoints outside of their corporate perimeter to support telepresence and other videoconferencing applications with partners worldwide.

Key Features •

Optimizes video calls between partners regardless of underlying carrier

Agnostic of telepresence or HD video endpoint in use

Set up and management of security policies between partners

Network access points worldwide for high performance regardless of location

Among carriers with telepresence-specific services, Virtela offers a high degree of differentiation through its approach to broadband redundancy and its unique access service methodology. The company’s goal is to work with as many carriers and access technologies as customer demand requires. Supported services can be native Ethernet, legacy private line, frame relay, ATM, an MPLS Network-toNetwork Interface (NNI), interconnection with a telepresence exchange service or IP VPN over the Internet. With the supervision of the company’s Regional Policy Centers, carrier services are constantly monitored and the customers’ connectivity and performance levels maintained at the highest levels. Enabling a range of connectivity options is an advantage for the largest enterprise networks where the scale of operation is based on a business footprint that touches a huge geography, exceeding the coverage of any one access carrier. This same connectivity also provides access to the Enterprise Services cloud which is a unique delivery platform for providing virtualized network based services.

The Secure Video Extranet service is a specialty offering designed to enable inter-company telepresence and video conferencing service. Customers can leverage a mix of dedicated carrier-carrier NNI connections, connections to strategic inter-company telepresence exchanges or leverage IP VPN technologies for interconnectivity, enterprise network to enterprise network over the Internet.

Dedicated NNI services: Video-enable one or more enterprise video networks on a frequent basis for an extended period. Exchange service interconnection: Typically require less notification to initiate, but once established can similarly enable extensive enterprise-enterprise telepresence communications. IP VPN services: Designed to enable enterprise network to enterprise network interconnection over the Internet.


VERIZON BUSINESS TELEHEALTH Verizon Business plans to broaden their share of client communications by leading with telepresence. The Telehealth program encompasses several leading applications: Professional education and training – Physicians, nurses and all manner of care givers that are licensed typically attend both professional training sessions to retain their licenses and to learn advanced specialist skills. Telepresence sessions are particularly appropriate in this setting, since the high quality experience reduces fatigue in long training sessions.

www.Verizonbusiness.com Verizon Business

Overview Telehealth enables collaboration across the healthcare system, regardless of where patients and healthcare providers are located.

Key Features • Immersive video conference rooms • Managed telepresence service • Network access via the Verizon Conferencing Private IP network, the public internet, traditional ISDN, or any combination • Consulting and integration services for IT, security, communications, and networking solutions

Specialist availability – Patients are able to interact with the physician specialist as if they were in the room. Closing the Language Gap – In many communities the nurse or attending physician may not speak the language of the patient. Using a video contact center where the contact center agents are translators, the physician or nurse with the patient can speak with the translator in the video session. Home care – In this circumstance the patient is remote or mobility challenged, where the caregiver needs only check in on the patient. Recorded training – enabling the recording and then playback of previously recorded training or professional education sessions. More productive administration – Using telepresence the time available from not traveling can be put to good use making decisions or collaborating on other projects and opportunities.

Verizon Business has the range of network, equipment resale and professional service skills and experience in the healthcare industry to implement and grow these and many other applications for this important market. Through a consultative process, the healthcare provider’s business goals are reviewed against the backdrop of the actual communications implementation where the gap analysis and equipment class recommendations can be made. Verizon Business prides itself on being equipment agnostic and is able to support equipment from all the leading vendors, and all the leading telepresence and video conferencing vendors including Cisco/ TANDBERG and Polycom.

VIDYOROUTER™

At the heart of the VidyoConferencing™ system is the VidyoRouter appliance, a new paradigm for multi¬party conferencing, that eliminates the need for the Multipoint Control Unit (MCU) required in traditional video conferencing systems. The VidyoRouter is the keystone in this major architectural change for videoconferencing.

www.vidyo.com Vidyo

Overview We make natural video communication available to everyone—from the office, home or while traveling—over general purpose IP networks, including the Internet. Vidyo has made telepresence-quality video conferences easy and affordable on PCs, Macs and HD room systems.

Key Features • Enables every end point up to its potential

VidyoConferencing was designed for general purpose IP networks. Encoding and decoding oc-curs only at the endpoints — leaving just video packet routing to be accomplished within the network itself. Vidyo’s intelligent VidyoRouter ensures that this packet-switching is handled with optimal efficiency — without either degrading the quality of the video or adding notice¬able latency, yet it delivers rate matched and resolution matched streams to each endpoint while providing industry leading network error resiliency – key to leveraging the public Inter¬net and wireless networks to make visual communication work wherever you do.

to perform

without impacting oth-

ers in the conference • Provides industry leading network error resiliency leveraging H.264 SVC standard • Imperceptible delay (<20msec introduced to media streams) • No transcoding – no video or audio quality loss • Great quality over the Internet and wireless networks • Highly scalable – 100 concurrent HD multipoint VidyoLines per stackable VidyoRouter • Floating VidyoLine licenses – economical

The VidyoRouter significantly improves network utilization efficiency by sending along only as many packets as an endpoint is capable of handling, depending on limitations in bandwidth, processing power and screen resolution. And because the amount of processing power and bandwidth available is dynamic, the VidyoRouter constantly tests and recalibrates what it should be sending to each endpoint, ensur¬ing that each endpoint is provided with the highest quality video it’s capable of receiving — even as local conditions change from one mo¬ment to the next.

global deployment and redundancy • Easy to deploy and scale – hours, not days

Each VidyoRouter supports up to 100 HD 1080p VidyoLines. A Vidyo¬Line™ is a shared resource that enables any VidyoDesktop user to participate in a point to point or multipoint Vidyo conference.

Since VidyoRooms and legacy endpoints connected through the VidyoGate¬way do not consume VidyoLine licenses, purchasing and provisioning a VidyoConferencing system is easy and affordable – however many VidyoDesktop users you need to concurrently participate in calls is the number of VidyoLine licenses you need. It’s that simple

Since all VidyoLines can be managed by a single VidyoPortal™, VidyoLines can reside together on one VidyoRouter or – to optimize user experience and performance – Vidyo¬Lines can “float” among multiple VidyoRouters that reside at different geographical loca¬tions, providing both redundancy and improving performance by utilizing VidyoRouters nearest the participants. Given that endpoints can produce a variety of different resolu¬tions, quality and frame rate combinations, the VidyoRouter ensures a video experience of consistent quality that is free of blurry images and broken pictures.


POWWOW VIRTUAL

www.PowwowVirtual.com Human Productivity Lab $40,000,000

Overview Powwow Virtual is the Human Productivity Lab’s business model for a global network of publicly available telepresence conferencing centers & sales centers for corporate telepresence, VTC, and prosumer video communications solutions.

Key Features •

A wide variety of systems of varying capacities and capabilities at superior price points than currently available

Ability to strongly brand the experience unlike hotel deployments

High-traffic locations in the major international gateway cities with respect to consumer awareness and visibility

Superior economics and overflow capacity for peak meeting times vs. onesie/ twosie deployments

Strong focus on the customer and the customer’s ability to connect with the greatest number of telepresence and videoconferencing end points at the greatest possible quality vs. a single platform approach

The world’s best showrooms and solution centers for enterprise customers.

Powwow Virtual is the Human Productivity Lab’s business model and technology roadmap for a global network of publicly available telepresence conferencing centers that double as showrooms/sales centers for corporate telepresence, video conferencing, and prosumer/ consumer visual collaboration solutions. We are seeking $40MM to open 6-7 “super centers” in high-end retail/business/ mixed use locations such as Tysons Corner Galleria, Grand Central Station (Pan Am Building/200 Park Avenue) in New York, Phipps Plaza in Atlanta, and/or the Ferry Building in San Francisco. The 6-7 initial locations would prove the Reed’s Law model I.E. that each additional location drives sales to the other locations in a virtuous cycle that grows geometrically with each new location. Additional locations (8-50+) would be added through franchise partners or through another capital raise to open additional company-owned stores. Each Powwow Virtual location would have multiple telepresence and videoconferencing systems from leading telepresence providers available by the hour or day. Each super center location would feature best-of-breed telepresence environments from 1 seat to 28 seats that would be capable of communicating at the highest possible quality natively with other Powwow locations, corporate telepresence and videoconferencing systems on a wide variety of carrier/private networks, publicly available telepresence networks and the world’s 2,500+ publicly available videoconferencing

Powwow Virtual has: • • • •
