We had the rare and awesome opportunity to witness the launch of Globe Business' Globe Telepresence facility. We checked out and was able to IMMERSE ourselves in the Telepresence experience in the Globe Telco Buidling in Asiatown I.T. Park, Cebu City.

Globe Telecom launched its new Globe Telepresence room offered through Globe Business. Globe Business delivers another first with the opening of a full 3-screen Telepresence room in Cebu. This is Globe's 2nd Telepresence facility in the country following the launch of its first Telepresence facility in Makati. The Telepresence enables a life-size "in-person" meeting experience for interaction and collaboration across multiple locations around the world in real time.

Globe selected AT&T for its expertise in successfully building and managing networks around the world.Globe Telepresence connects enterprises to other businesses, educational institutions, and other users of the AT&T Business Exchange, a feature of AT&T Telepresence Solution, representing more than 1,100 private and public telepresence rooms.

Globe also implemented CISCO's technology solutions at their new Telepresence room in Cebu and the highly immersive collaboration solution combines life-size,, ultra-high-definition video, spatial audio, a specifically designed environment, and interactive elements to create the face-to-face meetings.
