Tandberg and Polycom Telepresence Now Interoperable

  • NEW YORK and OSLO, NORWAY--Tandberg announced its Telepresence T3 is the first and only immersive telepresence solution that maintains the multi-screen, high-definition telepresence experience when calling out to a third-party telepresence system. This new functionality is meeting the growing demands of organizations that require all video systems to fully interoperate, putting an end to siloed communication.
  • “Organizations are turning to telepresence solutions now more than ever for the fast return on investment from reduced travel and increased productivity. However, as unified communications become more and more important, enterprises can¹t afford to invest in solutions that cannot work together,” said Dominic Dodd, global program director, Unified Communications & Collaboration, Frost & Sullivan. “By enabling telepresence systems to interoperate Tandberg has upped the ante by creating a standard that all telepresence providers will have to live up to if they want to be included in future purchasing decisions.”
  • Recognized for outstanding design, the Tandberg Telepresence T3 provides the best telepresence experience in the industry. It is interoperable with the Tandberg product portfolio, Microsoft Office Communications Server, and other standards-based video endpoints and telepresence systems. Today’s announcement extends that interoperability to provide the full telepresence experience when connecting with users of Polycom telepresence. This advanced telepresence interoperability, enabled through a Tandberg Telepresence Server software upgrade, allows organizations to get the most out of their existing and future telepresence investments by enabling them to connect to a wider audience.
  • ���Organizations shouldn’t be locked in by technology. Our vision is to enable open communities where people can collaborate naturally no matter how they are connecting,” said Fredrik Halvorsen, CEO, Tandberg. “Tandberg Telepresence systems are already interoperable with a broad range of third-party solutions. With high-definition multi-screen interoperability, Tandberg delivers the best possible experience for customers connecting to their existing, or their partners’ telepresence systems.”
