LIMA, Peru, Oct. 8, 2010 - Cisco inaugurated today the first Cisco TelePresenceTM room in Peru. The advanced collaboration solution integrates spatial audio, life-size ultra-high-definition video and interactive elements to provide a face-to-face meeting experience live through the network.
With this first Cisco TelePresence room, located at Cisco offices in Lima, one of the most innovative technologies has reached Peru.
- Through Cisco TelePresence technology, face-to-face meetings can be held without the need for traveling. Just making a simple call facilitates collaboration, productivity and decision making.
- The Cisco TelePresence solution comprises 65-inch plasma screens at 1080p resolution providing the participants with life-size video images of session participants. Three high-resolution cameras in each room show details of facial expressions and gestures on the other side of the "virtual table" in important meetings and negotiations.

- Participants can meet in up to 48 Cisco TelePresence rooms at the same time.
- Existing systems of standard-definition video conferencing can be easily integrated with Cisco TelePresence solutions.
