NEW YORK, June 2 /PRNewswire/ --

- Telepresence Meetings Will Connect Businesses in NYC and London

Teliris (, the leading telepresence provider, announced today it will offer free telepresence meetings between New York and London to business travelers affected by the recent closing of Silverjet airlines, which operated flights between airports in London, New York and Dubai.

Teliris, which pioneered the first telepresence system-a virtual meeting technology that allows colleagues to meet naturally across any distance-has been providing the only available true immersive telepresence solution to global corporations like Lazard, Merck and QUALCOMM among others since 1999.

During the month of June, Silverjet customers can simply log onto to set up their telepresence meeting date and time, bring their ticket confirmation receipt and sit down at either the New York or London Teliris telepresence headquarters and start their meeting.

"The Silverjet closing is one example of how travel is becoming more difficult in these hard economic times," said Marc Trachtenberg, CEO and co-founder of Teliris. "Telepresence provides the only true alternative to business travel that allows important meetings to take place despite outside influences and events."

The benefits of telepresence include reduced business travel, improved employee collaboration, reduced carbon footprint, enhanced work-life balance and an overall costs savings.

Teliris' customers also receive a fully managed service with every solution that guarantees a 99+ percent reliability, providing customers with enhanced business continuity.

In May, Teliris announced its newest portfolio, encompassing three solutions that included Teliris Personal Telepresence, the first cost-effective solution for private offices and individual users, Teliris Express Telepresence, and Teliris Custom Telepresence. All three are built on the core of Teliris' world-renowned VirtuaLive(TM) telepresence technology that provides the most natural, immersive, and intimate meeting environment available.

In June, Teliris will also launch the first-ever architecture built around immersive collaboration for telepresence at the InfoComm trade show in Las Vegas.
