Barco and TANDBERG announce user-friendly tele-collaboration solution for real-time data sharing
Barco, a world leader in advanced digital projection, is pleased to announce its collaboration with TANDBERG, a leading global provider of telepresence, high-definition video conferencing and mobile video solutions. Both companies have resolved to integrate their technologies to make remote collaboration quicker, more efficient and productive through user-friendly, ultra-high resolution tele-collaboration solutions.

Organizations that scrutinize large amounts of rich data and collaborate in real-time among multiple locations, such as government, oil & gas and automotive sectors, will benefit from Barco’s integration of its multi-windowing display systems with TANDBERG’s high-definition (HD) solutions. HD video conferencing now operates within a large, widescreen Windows environment, and allows easy mouse and keyboard control. More importantly, users can see and interact with remote participants in full, life-like detail while viewing data and video sources simultaneously.

“As decisions become more complex, they often involve input from a large number of experts and data points” says Fredrik Halvorsen, TANDBERG CEO. “Together with Barco, we simplify tele-collaboration for industries that rely on multi-site cooperation to share and review complicated data. This collaboration-without-borders facilitates the ability to make the right decisions faster.”

Thanks to Barco’s and TANDBERG’s solutions, multiple desktop applications and productivity software such as SAP can be integrated with high-definition video to deliver complete situational awareness. In addition, the flexibility to resize image windows that contain rich media content allows experts to focus on a particular scenario at any given point in a collaboration session.

“We developed this tele-collaboration solution together with TANDBERG, because we believe that we can render decision-making and collaboration between remote teams more efficient,” states Michel Vandeplas, President of Barco’s Presentation & Simulation Division. “TANDBERG’s ultra high-definition 1080p video allows teams to see remote colleagues in natural, life-like detail, and we can offer the right resolution, image quality and ease of use to enhance this experience.”

The new solution is available through an integrator package that includes TANDBERG’s C90 Telepresence Engine and high-definition cameras, configured on a Barco display system that comes with Barco’s XDS Control Center software suite. This multi-windowing software runs on a variety of Barco platforms, including LCD panels, projectors and single- or multi-channel projection systems. The latest and most impressive among these is the XDC-3000, a single-projector ten megapixel display system that allows its users to visualize multiple sources simultaneously in native resolution.

This new tele-collaboration solution will be on display in both the Barco and TANDBERG booths at InfoComm, June 18-20 in Las Vegas. The tele-collaboration solution will be available in the third quarter 2008.
