Telepresence is a rapidly growing and increasingly popular technology that enables groups to meet and collaborate in multiple locations worldwide in real time. By combining high-definition video, real time audio and interior design for GoThere Virtual Meetings© studios, groups feel as if they are actually gathered together in the same room across a virtual table, even if they are thousands of miles apart.
