Kaufman Bros., L.P. Selects Telanetix to Provide Telepresence Services to Offices Nationwide

November 8, 2007 | Chris Payatagool

kbrologo108.jpgtelanetix_300x87px.jpgSAN DIEGO, Nov. 6 -- Telanetix Inc., a leading IP solutions provider offering telepresence and VoIP services to the SMB and SME markets, won a contract to install its Digital Presence(TM) products in the three U.S.-based offices of Kaufman Bros., L.P. (KBRO), a leading national investment banking firm. Telanetix's telepresence installations will enable KBRO to communicate in real-time between its offices, as well as other sites -- including its clients and geographically dispersed banks -- using both the Digital Presence solution and legacy teleconferencing systems.

"The cost of the Telanetix systems is a fraction of our travel budget between our San Francisco and New York offices alone, but more importantly, the solution gives our executives and clients immediate access to all of the resources our firm offers, regardless of location, at a moment's notice," said Craig Kaufman, KBRO's Chairman and CEO. "Digital Presence is simple to use, accommodates all of our specialized data needs in real-time and in full resolution and enables meetings with many of our clients and employees in various locations simultaneously, even if they use non-Telanetix telepresence systems."

TLX-0074.jpgTelanetix Digital Presence is a unique technology that creates a fully immersive and interactive environment that integrates audio, video, and data from multiple locations into a single environment regardless of geographic boundaries. The display screens deliver full size, face-to-face images of real-time video, audio, and data in high quality resolution at 30 frames per second, which is so profoundly real that users feel as if they are all present in the same room. Using Telanetix developed encoders and decoders and advanced MPEG-4 compression on a Linux platform, Telanetix has effectively replaced the central videoconferencing bridge of legacy systems with high quality decentralized IP multicasting. Operation is simplified through the user interface which is intuitive and easy to use, and the system does not require a dedicated network.

Telanetix designs and manufactures its own products and also offers various purchase programs including the Telanetix Financial lease program.

"Our agreement with KBRO expands our outreach into the financial services vertical, and highlights how our financing program opens the telepresence market to small-to-medium businesses and enterprises," said Tom Szabo, Chairman and CEO of Telanetix. "KBRO has a strong foothold serving communications, media and technology companies, many of whom could also benefit from our Digital Presence offering. We believe many of KBROs' prestigious clients will be interested in learning more about Digital Presence when they experience the benefits first hand."

Telanetix provides a full range of telepresence products from the two screen Executive System to the four screen or greater Boardroom Systems. The company also offers various purchase programs including the Telanetix Financial lease program, which is specifically designed for companies like KBRO that do not want the capital expense to deploy telepresence, but would rather have a reasonable monthly expense spread over a number of years.
