Huntington Beach, CA, United States, 2009/11/04 - BrightCom will showcase integrated video, audio and data telepresence solutions including the L37, first of their new line of Lumina Telepresence at Presence '09, November 11-13.
BrightCom™, the performance leader in integrated telepresence and video conferencing solutions, announced today their exhibition at Presence 2009, The 12th Annual International Workshop on Presence sponsored by the International Society for Presence Research at the Marina del Rey Hotel in Los Angeles, California. BrightCom’s Lumina Telepresence L37 and ClearView 1052 HD Mobile Video Conferencing solution will be on display.
The International Society for Presence Research defines telepresence as a psychological state or subjective perception in which a person fails to accurately and completely acknowledge the role of technology in an experience, thus offering human communication an experience similar to an in person meeting. The PRESENCE conferences provide a relaxed and enjoyable forum for presentation of presence scholarship and applications and (especially in the planned format this year), discussion sessions that allow attendees to join together in synthesizing and expanding our collective knowledge and visions for the future regarding this compelling topic.
On November 11th, BrightCom will demonstrate their integrated Lumina Telepresence solution, the L37. The L37 is a modular telepresence workstation for 2 to 6 people to instantly connect and collaborate in a fully immersive telepresence environment. The solution allows participants and their colleagues, customers and partners in conference rooms and offices across the world feel as though they are in the same room.
Attendees of Presence 2009 will be able to experience BrightCom's integrated telepresence solutions, an approach that combines the natural ease of life-like conversation with Web conferencing features including desktop sharing, remote desktop control, data sharing and cooperative data markup. Additionally, BrightCom will exhibit how Lumina Telepresence and ClearView Video Conferencing allow attendees to conduct instant meetings without plugging their laptops into the system and instead, connect via a secured, online meeting client.
“BrightCom is honored to be included in the International Society for Presence Research’s Presence 2009,” said Bob McCandless, CEO of BrightCom. “We are always eager to take as much insight and as many ideas as we can from the academic community as we progress with our vision of integrated telepresence and video conferencing solutions.”
Several keynote speakers are scheduled to discuss different aspects of telepresence and its role in today’s society. Speakers include Barbara Hayes-Roth, an internationally recognized expert in intelligent agents and interactive characters, Howard Lichtman, founder and President of the Human Productivity Lab, an independent research consultancy that advises organizations wanting to invest in telepresence technologies and Albert "Skip" Rizzo, Research Scientist and Research Professor at the Institute for Creative Technologies and Department of Psychiatry/School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California.
