NEW YORK, July 20 --

Teliris (, the leading global provider of agile telepresence
and collaboration, today announced that it received a Positive rating in
Gartner’s MarketScope for Video Telepresence Systems by Robert Mason and
Scott Morrison.

In the June 2009 report, which assessed seven telepresence providers with at
least 50 multiscreen systems installed, Teliris received the highest rating
awarded to a telepresence provider. The Gartner MarketScope evaluated the
telepresence vendors on a variety of criteria including customer experience,
market responsiveness, track record, products and services.

Teliris recently announced its breakthrough 6G platform, which allows the
telepresence experience to be delivered over general purpose networks. The
standards-based client-server software solution delivers an agile solution to
reduce network costs and extend the reach of telepresence.

With 6G telepresence, Teliris is changing the way people look at telepresence -
it is now more affordable and more easily deployable, said Marc Trachtenberg,
Teliris CEO and co-founder. Gartner’s report confirms Teliris’
belief that our decade of experience in the telepresence space has allowed us
develop the most agile telepresence solution ever, extending the reach of
telepresence beyond the boardroom.

As the longtime telepresence leader in both innovation and deployments, Teliris
is the only solution delivering telepresence over general purpose networks.
Teliris has the broadest suite of telepresence products ranging from
sub-US$8,000 desktop solutions to boardroom systems. All Teliris solutions offer
comprehensive interoperability options that allow for connection to any system,
anywhere and an end-to-end managed service with a 99+ percent reliability
