Imtech implements TelePresence: less CO2 emissions thanks to effective remote conferencing


Gouda, the Netherlands – Over the coming six months Imtech N.V. (technical services provider in Europe) will equip all its European head offices with high-tech TelePresence solutions of Cisco. This will enable effective ‘real-live’ conferencing, and will greatly reduce travelling time, expenses and CO2 emissions. The solution will lower Imtech’s carbon footprint and is an excellent fit for the group’s policy on corporate social responsibility.

What is TelePresence?
TelePresence is a high-tech solution of Cisco. It consists of a combination of technologies for the perfect simulation of ‘real-live’ meetings. Participants appear to be actually sitting opposite each other, regardless of their physical location. TelePresence thus goes further than videoconferencing, as it enables direct eye contact and displays high-definition pictures real-time on large screens. This creates the look and feel of a physical face-to-face meeting. Non-verbal signals are also conveyed and it is possible to share presentations and additional with each other. In the fast-growing Imtech organisation (345 European offices and 70 international maritime sites) this solution will contribute - without repeated international travel - to a further intensification of contacts, implementation of common projects and Imtech-wide initiatives.

The TelePresence solution will be implemented by Imtech ICT Communication Solutions in close co-operation with Cisco Professional Services and Imtech ICT’s Shared Support Centre. The TelePresence units will be interconnected by means of ImtechNET, the corporate ICT network of Imtech, with the central hardware being installed in the data centre of the Shared Support Centre. This assures the highest level of security and transmission rate.
