The Technology

  • 1080p High Definition plasma screens (variations in size and price)

  • Each screen requires 2 to 3Mbps of bandwidth

How Much Does it Cost?

  • Currently, the cost for a single Telepresence suite is about $300,000

  • The cost for a ”small” Telepresence system (which is a single 65” plasma screen) is about $79,000

  • Cisco plans to bring Telepresence into homes within 2-3 years for about $1,000

  • With high prices, Telepresence is expected to be used only by very large companies
