About Array Telepresence
Array Telepresence is transforming visual
collaboration by creating innovative solutions to the big problems of
quality-of-experience, affordability, and deploying quality video in conference
rooms with elongated tables.
Our President and Founder, Herold Williams,
has been at the forefront of immersive telepresence since its inception.
Williams was the inventor of the TeleSuite, now called the Polycom RPX after
Polycom bought the technology in 2007.
Williams now stands ready to once again propel
the industry forward with his latest innovation: Equal-i – a revolutionary,
patented telepresence camera and image processor with the ability to turn
a traditional videoconferencing codec into a life- size telepresence
environment for $13,995 and the cost of n additional display.
The Equal-i camera and image processor work
with any videoconferencing system that takes an HDMI camera
input. The camera is concealed at eye-level between dual displays and the image
processor dramatically improves the scene before handing it off to the codec
for the trip across the wire.
The farthest participants are brought “Up
Close and Personal”, the amount of pixels on the farthest participants are
increased by 6.5xs that of a PTZ, the eye-line and format are improved, and the image processor powers large format dual displays using a single codec with no impact on
bandwidth or video network infrastructure.
The solution is superior to three-screen
telepresence environments from Cisco and Polycom costing $300,000+ on a variety
of fronts: Better eye-line, concealed camera, stand-up capture, better
horizontal gaze angle, less-bandwidth usage, and unlike the “split-table”
approach of three-screen environments, Equal-i fits into regular size
conference rooms and is an excellent format for local meetings vs. everyone
facing the same direction.
This combination of low-cost, ease-of-use, and
easy deployability means that organizations can now cost-effectively upgrade
dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of traditional videoconferencing rooms into
life-size telepresence environments for a fraction of the cost of the existing
Improved human factors translates into
additional usage and end-user satisfaction which equals an improved ROI on your
existing video investment. Just as important: Key executives are more visible
and look better when communicating with partners, vendors, customers, analysts,
and the press.
The company has additional innovations in the
pipeline including a solution for large-format single-screen displays, 4k
resolution and corporate board room solutions using quad Equal-i processing.
Array Telepresence is actively signing up
resellers, systems integrators, and Pro-AV partners to begin upgrading the
world’s 2,000,000+ sub-standard HD videoconferencing systems.
