Why Cisco products are best for Immersive meetings? Please explain on the Augmented reality in Cisco Webex Meetings (with iOS)
We as a leader in the Indian market we believe that for any Immersive Telepresence meeting these qualities should be there in the device which we provided and hardly believe on the same.
-Share 3D augmented reality files in your meeting directly from your iOS device
-Place, resize, and rotate a physical object anywhere in your immediate physical area
-Applications in product design, manufacturing, architecture, etc.
Our goal for immersive telepresence was to reproduce the best characteristics of direct human interaction that result from a face-to-face meeting. This is accomplished when:
Participants can all see each other on the screen no matter who is talking. Unless everyone is visible you miss important non-verbal expressions and reactions that provide important insight. It’s arguable that non-verbal queues are even more telling than verbal communication.
Participants can all see and hear each other in the highest clarity, no matter how they join the call. It should be true-to-life, so you should be able to see the people you are talking to as clearly as if they were sitting across the table from you.
The technology is seamless. Participants shouldn’t be aware of the technology that enables the immersive experience—they should simply be able to go about their business without worrying about how it’s being supported. This includes easy sharing of multimedia and addition and removal of participants from the call.
