Telepresence System

The Telepresence System service proposes an immersive experience for the user, since it enables meetings where participants in different locations can interact as if they were face to face, in the same conference table, thanks to high-definition (HD) cameras. With high-quality audio and video, the service makes nine rooms available, distributed throughout six states of the country, specifically planned and acclimated to increase the maximum sense of realism in the collaboration among remote participants.

The Telepresence System may be used through the connection of two rooms (peer-to-peer) or more places (multipeer), and in an integrated way with other RNP’s services, such as Videoconference and fone@RNP.

The service enables savings of time and financial resources, used in domestic and international travel, promoting the link between domestic and foreign researchers without the need of professionals to be absent from their daily activities.

In 2012, RNP telepresence started a scheduling system, making this activity easier for those responsible for the physical rooms of the service that, back then, performed the requests indirectly through RNP Service Desk.

How to subscribe

Through previous scheduling, the institutions that perform the adhesion to the service may use any physical room to conduct their peer-to-peer or multipeer meetings. In case of simultaneous meetings with multiple peers, the scheduling of a multipeer control unit (MCU) may be requested, to enable multiple connections.

To request the service adhesion, the institution must be in accordance with the Use Policy (in Portuguese) and contact RNP Service Desk through the e-mail sd@rnp.br or by phone on (55 61) 3243-4330.
