WASHINGTON, DC -- The NAB Show and Hemisphere Expo Services, Inc. have joined forces to launch TelepresenceWorld at NAB Show (http://www.telepresenceworld.com), the organizations announced today. The partnership brings the top telepresence event into the world's largest digital media and entertainment event for the 2011 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 9-14. Telepresence technologies allow organizations to conduct business globally, providing an immersive environment and an interactive experience similar to being in the same room. It allows business and content professionals to interact via high quality video imaging and crystal clear audio from multiple locations. Specialized telepresence solutions for specific industries already exist, for settings as diverse as pharmaceutical research labs, movie and television studios, university-level distance learning, and neurological operating rooms. TelepresenceWorld at NAB Show will feature an exhibit floor dedicated to telepresence and telecollaborative design technologies, products, applications, and solutions, along with a dedicated conference education program. This partnership will also allow telepresence technology to be integrated into the NAB Show's educational environment through telepresence-enabled session rooms. "We are extremely excited about this emerging technology and the numerous applications relevant to our show community. The NAB Show is about delivering video and audio content on all platforms. This technology represents not only an emerging communications medium, but it also serves as a tool for enabling content creation and collaboration, serving studios and stations remotely," said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. "We are especially fortunate to be partnered with the leading event and industry resource within the telepresence space, which will result in a high-quality experience for our attendees and exhibitors."
