DALLAS, TX April 25, 2012 -- Whygo, The world's leading online distributor of public video conferencing and Telepresence facilities and TPEX - Telepresence Exchange International, the world's leading Telepresence Exchange, today announced a strategic partnership to help end users and channel partners to schedule any Telepresence system on any network.
Immersive Telepresence today still has equipment and network connection barriers. To the non tech savvy what this means is some Telepresence equipment worth $100,000's on certain networks will not connect to other equipment on other networks. The reasons vary but the key ones are equipment incompatibility, which is becoming less of an issue every week, but mainly network providers not interconnecting their networks. For example, Cisco Telepresence users on the AT&T network cannot connect there Cisco Telepresence systems to say any of the 42 public TelePresence rooms on the TATA network.
Through Whygo and the TPEX exchange, these connection barriers are no more. Users on any network using any Telepresence equipment can connect. What's more, we can connect at their full High Definition and fully immersive 3 screen layout, if they have it.
"After almost one and half years since we launched our immersive Telepresence service offering, nothing pleases me more than the ability to finally be able to say yes to customers...we can connect your private Telepresence rooms to any of our 60+ public Telepresence facilities no matter what equipment or network you use," says James Matthews, CEO of Whygo, "The TPEX Exchange has opened up the market for every Telepresence user as they simply don't have connection limitations anymore."
Robert Rosier, CEO of TPEX said, "We are very excited to add the Whygo network and service of public video conferencing & Telepresence rooms to our TPEX exchange platform. This gives new and existing Telepresence users a huge added value in connecting both private & public Telepresence rooms on any network.
