Steamboat Springs, CO, May 17, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Hemisphere Expo Services, the organizers of the Telepresence World 2007 Conference, the landmark summit on telepresence, presence, and unified communications technologies that will be held at the University of San Diego in San Diego, CA, June 4th – 6th 2007, have created a new web portal dedicated to this amazing technology. The web portal, http://www.telepresenceworld.net, will feature:

- The latest news on telepresence research, products, and vendors
- Original articles on telepresence and its application and development
- Interviews with key industry experts
- Unbiased reviews of technologies and products
- Editorials, opinion, and comments from technology experts, analysts, leaders, developers, and marketers
- Whitepapers and reports on telepresence and related subjects

The portal also encourages readers to become part of the telepresence community and submit articles, comments, and blogs directly to the website. “Telepresenceworld.net is the central gathering place for everyone involved in the telepresence and presence industry, including vendors, corporate CEOs and IT personnel, researchers, bandwidth providers, and end users,” said Mark Barounos, President of Hemisphere Expo Services. “It plays a pivotal role in the evolution of telepresence representing a tremendous opportunity to dialogue with people who are involved in shaping the future of the industry.”

Telepresence uses large, high-resolution screens, high-definition video, and CD-quality audio to provide a fluid, “in-person” experience which is unlike anything you have seen before. It has the potential to dramatically improve and facilitate collaboration and interaction between participants who are at remote locations.

The Telepresence World 2007 Conference will bring together industry leaders, researchers, and end-users from around the world to experience, discuss, and compare telepresence solutions and technologies. Leading telepresence providers, including sponsors Polycom, Teliris, Cisco, Telanetix, BT, DVE (Digital Video Enterprises), and Masergy will host live demonstrations for conference delegates so they can experience the incredible life-like reality of this technology. Media sponsors for Telepresence World 2007 include: CXO, CIOIndex, Business Management (bm), VOIP-News.com, and ITSecurity. Telepresence World 2007 is supported by the Interactive Media & Collaborative Communications Alliance (IMCCA), the International Society of Presence Research (ISPR), and the Wall Street Technology Association (WSTA.org).
