logo_datacraft.gifSingapore, 18 Feb 2008 - Datacraft, Asia's leading independent IT solutions and services Company, has been selected by a global wireless service provider to implement its first Cisco TelePresence meeting solution in Asia Pacific. The Cisco TelePresence meeting solution combines high quality audio, high definition video and interactive technologies to create a virtual, in-person meeting experience over the network. The contract covers project management and deployment of the Cisco TelePresence 3000 solution in India.

The service provider's strategic business unit is based in Chennai, India and employs more than 2000 people at its offices in Chennai and Hyderabad. The TelePresence solution provides an ideal alternative to reduce the frequent travel to India, whilst addressing the challenge of improving communication timeliness and efficiency.

Each TelePresence endpoint includes plasma screens, microphones, cameras, high-definition codecs, and other elements necessary for a virtual meeting that supports the "same room" experience. Leveraging the advanced audio and video technologies of the TelePresence solution, the virtual meetings can now be conducted online with life-sized participants projected on screen and the ability to interact in real time from locations worldwide.

Besides cutting costs associated with employees traveling for meetings and conferences, improving internal communications and enhancing employee productivity gains, the TelePresence solution also contributes to the environmental cause by substantially reducing the carbon footprint created by frequent air travel.

Mr. Sunil Manglore, CEO, Datacraft India, said, "We are very pleased to be among the first few companies to deploy the innovative TelePresence solution in Asia. This deal clearly affirms our strong capability and technical know-how in deploying cutting edge technologies like Cisco TelePresence."

"The successful deployment of our first TelePresence deal for the service provider has provided an excellent reference site and showcase of our capability.  As a result, Datacraft has since clinched a few more TelePresence deals with other organisations in India," added Manglore.
