Teliris was a privately owned telepresence and videoconferencing company, now part of Dimension Data, headquartered in New York City and London that designs and sells video collaboration products and services. Teliris currently has deployments in over 50 countries. Its client base includes large-cap companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, Royal Bank of Scotland and the New York Stock Exchange.[1]

Company Overview[edit]

Teliris was founded in 1999 following a joint venture between Mycroft, a New York-based technology company, and the UK company Global Intercasting Ltd, which provided live satellite television programs for global corporate clients.

In 2011, Teliris hired three new executive team members, formerly of Level 3 Communications, to help expand the company's product and service portfolio and increase market penetration.[2][3][4]

Martyn Lewis, CBE, co-founder and former European Chairman of Teliris, continues to play an important role in advancing the company's reputation.[5]

Products and services[edit]

Since its inception, Teliris has primarily sold high-end telepresence solutions, with the New York Times calling it a "major player in telepresencing."[6] The company's telepresence products include the VirtuaLive, a room-based solution with the most immersive, lifelike video experience. The three-screen Express solution, a more cost-effective option, can be efficiently set up and offers a natural, immersive telepresence experience. Teliris also offers a single-screen Personal solution, and its table-top Executive solution.[7] In 2011, Teliris announced two new videoconferencing products, the StartPoint appliance solution and the @nywhere software client.[8]

All of Teliris' products are supported by their managed service package, which includes full support, monitoring, and reporting.[9] In 2011, the company announced that it would support management of video endpoints from other hardware manufacturers.[10] That same year, Teliris announced a partnership with Fuze Box to integrate real-time collaboration functionality into its products.[11]
