National LambdaRail (NLR) has announced that it is developing a plan to implement a Telepresence testbed based on the Cisco Telepresence Meeting solution by mid-2007. With its nationwide optical backbone connected to nearly 20 regional optical networks, it will be simple for researchers to participate in the testbed from key research and education facilities throughout the nation. A call for participation will be issued early next year.
"NLR is the ideal platform to drive deployment of innovative collaboration tools like Cisco's Telepresence Meeting," noted Tom West, NLR's President and CEO. "We are excited about the opportunity to leverage an out-of-the-box solution to further engage researchers and provide them with critical network services to make their research visions reality."
Cisco's Telepresence Meeting equipment provides ultra-high definition 1080p video and high-quality, wideband spatial audio, imperceptible low latency, with comprehensive environmental design. Meeting participants feel as if they are in the same room together, even though they may be located across the globe. With the ability to see and hear others in ultra-high definition video and wideband spatial audio, users experience subtleties and nuance of conversations.
Using life-size, ultra high-definition 1080p video delivering 1080p resolution provides a higher-quality image that is 6x better than standard television and more than 2x better than HD TV. Specially-designed ultra high-definition cameras support the high-quality video and require no user operation. Wideband spatial audio and multi-channel, full-duplex sound provides excellent voice projection and helps enable multiple simultaneous conversations, just like what typically occurs during an in-person meeting. Specially designed microphones eliminate sound interference.
