Cisco innovation in action

November 13, 2007 - 2 Comments

The Cisco I-Prize was announced live in Bangalore India by CEO John Chambers and SVP Marthin De Beer. Watch the announcement video to see an exciting Cisco innovation: the On Stage TelePresence experience. While John was physically on stage in India, Marthin was physically in San Jose California, 8000+ miles away but appeared on stage via Cisco’s TelePresence technology. The interaction between John and Marthin wasn’t recorded — both men were speaking live and in real-time. This has to be seen to be believed!
