Telepresence in Manufacturing

Telepresence isn’t just for video conferencing between participants in meeting rooms. Immersive collaboration is also practical and cost-effective within manufacturing and engineering environments.

Imagine being able to meet remotely with employees on the plant floor and address equipment issues. This Telepresence in Manufacturing article by Design News describes just that, via Cisco’s Manufacturing Mobile Video Collaboration (MMVC) solution. Its MMVC allows handheld wireless cameras to share voice, video and data between remote employees. As a result, companies can bring products to market faster, reduce plant downtime and resolve supplier issues quickly. Engineers can share CAD files and up-close images of equipment, while telestration can highlight specific areas on the image being shared.

One of the coolest features may be MMVC’s integration with Cisco Telepresence. The combination allows experts to communicate face to face with employees in the field via immersive, lifelike meetings. The telepresence system can also receive live video and data feeds from handheld cameras focused on specific areas equipment, allowing participants to see those areas in detail as they collaborate and find solutions.
