Tata Communications, a leading global provider of new world communications, and Compass Offices, the market leader for serviced offices in Hong Kong, launch Telepresence, a high definition, life size immersive video conference service, in Central Building, Pedder Street.
Telepresence, the next generation video conferencing technology, provides a high definition environment enabling companies to emulate a face-to-face meeting regardless of where they are located in the world.
Superior to traditional videoconferencing which provides standard video and audio quality, Telepresence is a fully immersive, life-like and high definition meeting experience. It is so life-like that participants actually feel as if they are sitting in the same room together.
The Central Building facility provides access to the largest international Telepresence ecosystem in the world via the extensive global network of Tata Communications, linking Hong Kong to any public or private Telepresence rooms on the Tata Communications Global Meeting Exchange, one of the broadest Telepresence networks available today. This is also a gateway to Tata Communications’ public room, Telepresence network which spans 34 cities across five continents — the largest in the world. This network reach makes Telepresence a truly global collaboration tool.
“Telepresence is a game-changing technology for businesses and our global strategy has always been to make the technology accessible to as many firms as possible through our extensive global Telepresence network,” comments Peter Quinlan, Vice President, Integrated Business Video Services, Tata Communications.” Compass Offices’ reputation in providing state-of-the-art facilities for businesses in Asia made it an ideal partner to launch our first Hong Kong public Telepresence room.”
Complete with tri-lingual secretarial and concierge services, the partnership between Tata Communications and Compass Offices allow clients to transact international business effectively without any of the costs or commitments previously associated with international video conferencing.
“Compass clients will pay by the hour for this service,” explains Alastair Gledhill, Regional Sales Director for Compass Offices.
“This state-of the-art facility offers huge saving for clients who previously had to agree long term service agreements to access technology of this calibre.
“Partnering with Tata Communications in this pioneering venture re-affirms Compass Offices’ commitment to flexible, affordable solutions as we pioneer a ‘New Way To Work’.”
Compass Offices’ business centres equip clients with the full use of a serviced office, dedicated reception area, pantries, meeting rooms, communal spaces and a pre-eminent IT infrastructure of a combination and a calibre normally only associated with leading multinational companies.
In addition, Compass Offices’ Virtual Office network can provide internationally based clients with the substantial presence of a prime location address and communication services chosen from a growing network of prestige Asian locations.
