- Company Pioneers First Multi-Touch Surface Collaboration Environment for Telepresence

InfoComm 2008 -- Teliris (, the leading provider of immersive telepresence solutions, announced today the first-ever multi-touch surface computing based collaboration solution and interactive virtual flip chart and whiteboard for telepresence, designed specifically for immersive collaboration business use.

The revolutionary Teliris InterACT TouchTable(TM) and Teliris InterACT TouchWall(TM), allows for documents, video, audio, presentations and a wide range of other content to be instantaneously shared and manipulated across any number of locations, naturally and easily, as if participants are in the same room.

Additionally, the Teliris InterACT Easel(TM) enables users to create, share and edit content in real-time on a virtual flipchart/whiteboard, extending the natural experience of face-to-face collaboration to any number of locations and users.

The two new multi-touch offerings, which are the first to provide the collaboration tools necessary to extend the telepresence experience beyond the audio and visual senses, features a unique gesture recognition algorithm that allows users to interact naturally with intuitive motions and that requires no user training.

"This is collaboration without boundaries, a complete departure from the current tools that exist. It's a completely new approach to collaboration that sets the stage for how companies will continue to use telepresence to naturally and effectively meet across any distance," said Marc Trachtenberg, Teliris CEO and co-founder. "This level of innovation further solidifies Teliris as the thought leader ahead of Cisco, HP, Polycom and Tandberg."

"Telepresence delivers a truly immersive environment with video and audio -- now Teliris delivers the collaboration tools to fully replicate the true dynamics of a face-to-face meeting," continues Trachtenberg. "This will change the way people think about what telepresence can deliver and multiplies the value they can realize by deploying this solution.

The solutions are packaged with a fully managed service including a 99-plus percent reliability guarantee.
