Teliris LogoNEW YORK - November 27, 2007 - Teliris (, the leading full-service provider of telepresence solutions, today announced that Qualcomm has selected Teliris' fourth generation telepresence solution for a trial program aimed at fostering deeper integration and increased communication between its San Diego headquarters and research facilities located in Campbell, Calif. and Bridgewater, N.J.  The solution, which includes three installations of VirtuaLive(tm) Modular, will be an addition to help engineers from the company's remote offices collaborate more effectively on research and design projects and ultimately improve productivity and efficiency.

"Research and development are cornerstones of Qualcomm's long history of technology innovation, and collaboration among our various remote locations has been an important part of our success." said Barbara Noerenberg, vice president of corporate R&D program management, Qualcomm.  "Teliris' telepresence solutions provide us with a new layer of communications that will help us bridge the geographic gaps and work more closely across our offices."

VirtuaLive(tm)(, Teliris' fourth-generation offering, provides Qualcomm and many other global corporations with the latest telepresence technology and a broad set of room offerings that, together offer the most immersive and natural virtual meeting environment available on the market. By capturing and transmitting visual and auditory cues such as facial expressions, gestures and even side-comments, Teliris' technology faithfully replicates an in-person meeting experience. Teliris enables participants to collaborate as if they are working around the same table.

"This trial collaboration demonstrates Qualcomm's commitment to managing a multi-site business in the most streamlined way possible," said Marc Trachtenberg, Teliris CEO. "We are thrilled that such a respected technology mainstay recognizes the value of telepresence in enhancing their business communications.  As an additional benefit, Teliris' systems provide all our customers with redundancy for situations where other forms of communication are interrupted or impractical, such as during airline delays, disasters, epidemics or any other issue that could break down communication between offices."

Teliris received the 2007 Global Award for Market Leadership from Frost & Sullivan for holding the largest global market share of customer telepresence solutions at 44 percent. The company offers the only guaranteed platform that can interoperate with telepresence systems from other vendors and connect remote users to telepresence meetings via a broadband Internet connection.
