Musion and Masergy demonstrate 3D telepresence
Musion has partnered with Masergy to successfully complete the world’s first live 3D holographic teleconference using Polycom’s immersive telepresence technology.
Images of representatives from Masergy’s London office were transmitted live across London to Musion’s West London location for a holographic business presentation.
Ian O’Connell, Director of Musion, stated, “Polycom’s affordable HDX video codec creates a terrific, easily accessible solution and introduces Musion TelePresence to a much wider audience. The future of business communication isn’t just sat at a desk behind a screen – it is now possible to experience face-to-face, fully immersive 3D meetings where individuals appear in breathtaking clarity to each other without the need to physically be there.”
Prior to the Polycom HDX codec implementation, a dedicated 20MB MPLS line was required to meet the ultra-low latency requirements of a stable holographic image. With Polycom’s video technology and Masergy’s networking expertise, the 4MB signal performed perfectly on a 10MB connection.
“This is another step towards a more immersive future, made possible by a high performance network,” said Richard Mathewson, Vice President Sales, EMEA at Masergy. “This partnership is one more example of how forward-thinking companies are changing the face of telecommunications.”
