  • 29 January, 2009 17:47

<p>SYDNEY (January 29, 2009) – TANDBERG today announced the TANDBERG Profile, a telepresence-quality 1080p high-definition video conferencing system, powered by the next generation TANDBERG Codec C60 video collaboration engine. With these new products, TANDBERG now brings telepresence-quality 1080p high definition to the broadest range of video conferencing applications and sets the new technology standard for the industry.</p>
<p>In these challenging times, companies are being forced to reduce travel, limiting partner meetings, customer events and employee gatherings. But efficient teamwork and strengthened customer relationships are needed to weather the storm, making communication paramount. TANDBERG fills this communication gap by offering a telepresence-quality video conferencing experience to everyone in an enterprise with the new TANDBERG Profile and C60.</p>
<p>“Difficult times require a break with past practices,” said Fredrik Halvorsen, CEO, TANDBERG. “With reduced budgets and a heightened need for communication, many executives are turning to telepresence to replace travel. With the TANDBERG Profile and C60, we are making a telepresence-quality 1080p HD experience available to teams throughout an organisation. Moreover, TANDBERG solutions quickly pay for themselves.”</p>
<p>The TANDBERG Profile has an intelligent, user-friendly interface and is flexible for any team room environment. Its three widescreen LCD display options (single 42”, single 52” or dual 52”) coupled with full duplex audio and a strategically placed PrecisionHD™ 1080p camera allow for better eye-contact and more natural communication. The sleek, attractive design of the Profile also incorporates recyclable aluminium materials, keeping in line with TANDBERG’s environmental sustainability goals. Moreover, it is part of a TANDBERG Total Solution for complete management and access to intelligent network services. The TANDBERG Profile is interoperable with any standards-compliant video conferencing or telepresence system.</p>
<p>The Profile is driven by the new TANDBERG Codec C60, the next generation video collaboration engine also announced today. Based on the same advanced technology as the Codec C90 telepresence engine, the C60 allows up to four microphones and four HD sources – including rich multimedia – to connect at the same time. This enables easy sharing of presentations and other multimedia to spark ideas and discussion.</p>
<p>“As the global workforce continues to expand, companies with the tools to enable their remote teams to easily connect and collaborate will come out ahead,” said Roopam Jain, principal analyst, Frost &amp; Sullivan. “The ease-of-use, interoperability and high quality of the TANDBERG Profile provide an ideal environment to drive innovative and creative teams, no matter where they are located.”</p>
<p>The TANDBERG Profile and the Codec C60 are currently available for purchase. The C60 is available for purchase as a stand-alone product and as an integration package with the PrecisionHD 1080p camera, microphone, remote control and cables. For more information, please visit or contact</p>
