Busi­ness Oc­tane’s Ul­tra-im­mer­sive Telep­res­ence Tech­nol­ogy Ups the Ef­fec­tive­ness of Busi­ness Meet­ings

Vedanta Group is a glob­ally-di­ver­si­fied nat­u­ral re­source group com­mit­ted to sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment and growth in the ar­eas they op­er­ate: copper, zinc, alu­minium, iron ore and power. To en­sure its over 32,000 em­ploy­ees and of­fices in four con­ti­nents were well aligned with its busi­ness goals, Vedanta used to or­ga­nize monthly face-to-face re­view meet­ings, a com­plex op­er­a­tion as it re­quired al­most all of its 150 top ex­ec­u­tives to fly to one lo­ca­tion, and put up in ho­tels for the du­ra­tion of the meet­ing.

Want­ing to stream­line this process, Ven­data made the de­ci­sion to part­ner with Busi­ness Oc­tane to cre­ate telep­res­ence rooms. Busi­ness Oc­tane’s Ul­tra-im­mer­sive Vis­ual Col­lab­o­ra­tion Group Telep­res­ence so­lu­tion makes col­lab­o­ra­tion eas­ier, al­low­ing par­tic­i­pants to main­tain­eye-to-eye con­tact, en­joy high-def­i­ni­tion video and stereo spa­tial au­dio. They canalso read the nu­ances of the other par­tic­i­pants’ body lan­guages.The par­tic­i­pants, no mat­ter where they are, will get to ac­cess and write on the same white­board. The en­tire so­lu­tion also comes with Al­traA­cous­tic In­te­ri­ors. The acous­ti­cally-treated walls im­prove the qual­ity of au­dio in telep­res­ence meet­ings and au­dio tele­con­fer­ences. There are al­so­mo­tor­ized ta­ble top con­tent dis­plays, en­abling all par­tic­i­pants to see con­tent crys­tal clear.

To­day, Vedanta has 19 telep­res­ence rooms across In­dia, one in Lon­don,

one in Zam­bia and an­other one in South Africa. Itschair­man has these telep­res­ence rooms at his res­i­dences in Mum­bai, Lon­don as well as New York. In­ter­op­er­abil­ity is also pos­si­ble — the so­lu­tion lets par­tic­i­pants con­nect to any video­con­fer­enc­ing ma­chine in­side a min­ing plant of­fice or any­where else in the world. It also en­ables em­ploy­ees at Vedanta to con­duct meet­ings with ven­dors, cus­tomers and con­sul­tants, even if they are not equipped with a telep­res­ence fa­cil­ity.
