The article discusses the differences between traditional room-based videoconferencing and telepresence systems. Telepresence's real-time requirements are similar to those of voice over IP (VOIP) such as very high bandwidth, very low packet loss, low jitter, and low end-to-end latency. The adoption of telepresence can be justified by saved travel time and increased productivity. There is a comparison of product features, configuration, equipment prices, and managed-service costs for Cisco TelePresence, Hewlett-Packard Halo, Polycom RPX, Tandberg Experia, and Telirus VirtualLive.
