cisco_telepresence_3000.jpgTelePresence meetings are set to revolutionize global business relationships. CXO got a peek at this new technology first hand.

As Senior Vice President of Cisco's Emerging Markets Technology Group (EMTG), Marthin De Beer has more than 20 years experience in the communications and software industry, and under his leadership EMTG is responsible for cultivating a steady stream of new businesses. From a TelePresence meeting room in Bangalore, Marthin De Beer spoke with CXO's Helia Phoenix, who came to marvel at the technology in Cisco's London office.

CXO. Firstly, please can you explain what TelePresence is?


MDB. TelePresence is a virtual in-person experience. We are thousands of miles apart, you are in London and I am in Bangalore, but it feels like we're in the same virtual meeting. Body language can now become business language, because it's not just what I say but how I say it. It's also about how other people in the room react to what I say. All that is lost if you don't have the visual interaction in a meeting. We have designed a new form of communications that has the ability to transform business. Now you can be in any country in a matter of seconds. We think that has a real potential to drive productivity and transform business.
