Customized solution blends Cisco/TANDBERG codec technology and infrastructure solutions to meet unique Telepresence requirements

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- AVI-SPL, a leading provider of audio video communications solutions, today announced the availability of Cameleon Telepresence with embedded Cisco/TANDBERG technology. Cameleon is a first-of-its-kind multifunction Telepresence solution designed by AVI-SPL to adapt to a customer's environment while providing the highest quality meeting experience. The latest version of the Cameleon Telepresence solution leverages Cisco/TANDBERG C-series video codecs and their full line of infrastructure solutions.

The Cisco/TANDBERG-equipped Cameleon is specifically designed to address customer requirements that fall below the T3 capabilities, but call for the Cisco/TANDBERG end-to-end experience. The Cameleon solution provides: an immersive Telepresence experience; a high-quality HD videoconferencing solution; crisp, cutting-edge audio conferencing; and local multimedia presentation display ability in one easy-to-use system. Cameleon's intuitive graphical user interface allows even first-time users to easily host a Telepresence, video / audio meeting, or local presentation with just a few touches.

Cameleon can easily be customized to fit to most existing environments. Cameleon is a customer-driven solution, as it is designed to be adaptable to a variety of requirements, including adding a second participant row; automated room control for lighting, shades and climate; additional presentation sources such as DVD players and document cameras; and different color finishes to match existing office decor.

"Cisco's T3 and CTS TelePresence solutions are state of the art and provide exactly what most of our customers are looking for," said Mike Brandofino, executive vice president of video and unified communication, AVI-SPL. "Cameleon is designed to fill the gap below these solutions where customers are looking for customization, while at the same time leveraging the Cisco/TANDBERG codecs and infrastructure solutions. The creative side of our business allowed us to design and build these new solutions, maintaining an intuitive and flexible customer experience that easily adapts to their environment."

Combined with AVI-SPL's Customer Care Plus+ support programs and ConferencePoint Managed Services, Cameleon delivers the communication solution and support structure users expect in today's demanding business environment.

Initial shipment of the Cisco/TANDBERG-equipped Cameleon Telepresence solution is scheduled for the fourth quarter 2010. Cameleon demonstrations are currently available at AVI-SPL's Video Briefing Center (VBC) in Chicago with additional VBC locations planned in the U.S. over the next few months.
