Vu introduces 1499 euro telepresence

Posted on

Vu Technologies showed its 1499 euro Vu TelePresence solution at ISE 2011. Produced after 3 years of research and $15 million of investment,  Vu TelePresence is designed to disrupt the status quo in VC. Vu Technologies has said that the company is daring “to take on global giants in the field of HD videoconferencing and telepresence”.

Five unique aspects of Vu TelePresence are said to make it the leading technology company. These include Vu TrueVideo that supports HD (720p) video. The Vu TrueBroadband offers no more jitters or frozen frames and it requires a realistic bandwidth 400-600 Kbps for HD quality video. It also has a codec that enables superior image capture and faithful reproduction with minimal bandwidth.

But how does the company achieve the price? The company says that its pricing “realistic which makes sure it’s a mainstream product”:

“Telepresence technology has enormous potential to enhance work productivity besides achieving a better work-life balance with less travel. Yet, this technology which has the potential to make a change to the mass of people has only been limited to a niche. The biggest of the challenges stopping the growth of telepresence has been low bandwidth, high costs of purchase and long-term ownership, poor video quality and complication in product set-up.”

“Overcoming these limitations is where the opportunity lies. It is our belief at Vu Technologies that telepresence should be available to every employee in a company and not just for senior managers. However, the initial costs of a telepresence solution, as well as the ongoing costs of bandwidth, have been a huge deterrent to making this technology ubiquitous. Our focus has been on making telepresence affordable both in the initial costs as well as ongoing operational costs by using advanced codec techniques and leveraging innovations on the hardware front.”
