Whatever happened to telepresence? From $2.5m deals to free iPad apps Mar 20, 2013 The Register | Bob Dormon "If you look at traditional videoconferencing hardware, it's typically a tin box taking up space in a data centre - separately powered, provisioned, administered - typically a fixed capacity of some form. It might be a card box - fill that up and get another and so on. What we've done is taken that whole capacity and put that in a software virtualised appliance which we call the UVC Platform. This is a single point of administration for all those video infrastructure devices."
