The National Hockey League (NHL) recently added the collaborative power of Cisco TelePresence – a life-sized, HD video communications system — to its league offices in New York and Toronto. The deployment is part of a renewed agreement between Cisco and the NHL, one that also includes using Cisco technology to enhance the fan experience through distribution of varied NHL content.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman made the announcement December 7 at a press conference in West Palm Beach, Fla., where he fielded questions from New York, Toronto and San Jose, Calif., via Cisco TelePresence.
As part of the partnership, Cisco TelePresence will also be used to enable hospitalized children to interact with hockey players and NHL legends.
Through Cisco TelePresence, people collaborate face to face with others worldwide and feel as if they are in the same room. With this immersive technology, businesses can cut down on their travel expenses while significantly increasing their decision-making efficiency.
