David Beckham Gets Together with Millions of Fans on Cisco TelePresence

July 16, 2010 - 2 Comments

On July 14, 2010, football fans around the world had the unique opportunity to interview David Beckham live over Cisco TelePresence.

Yahoo!, working together with Cisco, staged the event “The World Interviews David Beckham Live”, connecting fans from 20 countries across five continents. The interview was also streamed live to 600 million Yahoo! users around the world.

Beckham visited Cisco’s U.K. office to use TelePresence to connect to fans in Germany, Italy, Spain, Canada, the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, among other countries.

Yet another pretty interesting use of Cisco TelePresence.
