NEW YORK, NY and OSLO, NORWAY--Marketwire - March 18, 2010 - Today, TANDBERG (OSLO: TAA) launched the EX90, a revolutionary personal telepresence solution that extends the award-winning TANDBERG Telepresence in-person experience to individuals at their desks or home offices. The EX90 integrates the superior audio and visual quality and signature touch screen interface of TANDBERG Telepresence into a sleek desktop solution that will change the way executives and experts communicate and collaborate.

"Business driven by emails and phone calls is a thing of the past. Today's executives do not

TANDBERG_EX90_doodle[1].jpg have time to wait for answers, or to be misunderstood. They must be able to connect face-to-face with anyone at anytime, at a moment's notice, to accelerate decisions and drive business in real time," said Fredrik Halvorsen, TANDBERG CEO. "The EX90 enables executives to engage with customers, experts and employees as if they were sitting across the desk. This highly versatile system is built for the executive experience -- with a sleekly designed large HD display for natural interaction that is also incredibly simple to use."

 The EX90 easily connects in full 1080p30 resolution to any standards-based video or telepresence system with TANDBERG inTouch, a first-of-its-kind 8" touch screen interface. Based on the signature TANDBERG Telepresence touch screen technology, inTouch simplifies making video calls, sharing content and accessing advanced features with the glide of a finger, eliminating the need for a remote. Moreover, the EX90 has MultiSite, which allows executives to add two other participants to any call and the large 24" HD screen ensures they are easily viewable. The EX90 can seamlessly double as a PC monitor and has a handset for audio, streamlining executives' communications and their desks.

We rely on TANDBERG Telepresence and HD video conferencing for instant 'in-person' access to drive critical meetings and make decisions," said Steve Henderson, Program Manager for Varian Medical Systems, the world's leading manufacturer of medical devices and software for treating cancer and other medical conditions. "Connecting and collaborating from my desk in the same high quality is very easy and intuitive with inTouch. The advanced features and similarity to other familiar touch screen technology puts everything I need for a rich experience right at my fingertips helping me to accomplish much more than if I was just on a conference call, or even traditional video conferencing."

For a tailored total collaboration experience, users have the flexibility to add a second monitor to the EX90 to preserve the face-to-face personal telepresence experience while sharing data or multimedia at the same time on the other screen. In addition to capturing high-definition video, the built in PrecisionHD Camera tilts 90 degrees enabling users to share sketches, blueprints, X-rays and other documents, as well as objects like fabric swatches or models. Combined with the ability to easily add cameras, multimedia devices and other peripherals, the EX90 is an ideal solution for true collaboration in any industry setting.

"Telepresence isn't just about the room set up or number of screens. It's about the ability to reproduce the valued characteristics of a face-to-face meeting or other similar form of direct human interaction," said Dominic Dodd, Frost & Sullivan. "The EX90 does this by bringing the high-quality, natural experience of TANDBERG Telepresence to the desktop in a very attractive solution that makes communicating with other video and telepresence users simple. It also incorporates familiar business collaboration tools and features to streamline the overall experience and help drive efficiencies."
