DVE Ranked as Telepresence Leader in Technology and having “Broadest Product Portfolio” by major industry analyst’s report.

IRVINE, Calif., June. 13, 2009 / -- In a comprehensive evaluation of the major telepresence system vendors and their products, ABI Research recognized DVE as “Leader in Technology” and as having the “Broadest Product Portfolio”, in their Global Telepresence Market Report. “DVE is proud to be recognized as the leader in two very important telepresence categories by a major global telepresence industry analysis,” said Jeff Machtig, DVE Co-Founder. DVE’s industry disruptive technology, backed by numerous patents, ingeniously hides the camera behind the display image and thereby creates true eye contact. Also, since the camera is hidden behind the image, local participants sit up close and personal to the other participants in the call who are imaged on the display, this permits the feeling of “immersive telepresence”. (see illustration)

DVE’s leading telepresence experiences from the desktop to the board room can use any type of codec, camera and microphone. Therefore, any conferencing company’s systems can integrate into DVE’s eye contact telepresence solutions. This is especially important for organizations which may already have an infrastructure of a particular company’s videoconferencing codecs, and want to upgrade their experience to immersive telepresence. In 2008 DVE expanded its product portfolio of telepresence solutions to include the Huddle Room 70, The Telepresence Stage, and The Eye Contact Silhouette (all seen below). ABI Research recognized the additions to the product line and concluded that DVE now has the broadest product portfolio in the industry.

“DVE plans to expand our product portfolio lead even further in 2009 with focus on the highest end of Telepresence and managed services products and features,” According to DVE co -founder Steve McNelley.  DVE’s “Best of Technology” products shatter the myth that you have to spend at least $200,000 to achieve the goal of real Telepresence. The DVE product portfolio smartly provides better experiences at prices substantially less than competitors. Most importantly, codecs, cameras, microphones, and infrastructure products easily integrate into DVE telepresence solutions. This flexibility for small, mid, and large businesses greatly improves their choices, and enables them to deploy the best telepresence experience.
