Tandberg, a provider of video conferencing equipment, and HP have collaborated on a new product that enables HP's high end Halo conferencing suite to work in a standard video conferencing setup.

Halo provides what is known as telepresence, which uses sophisticated lighting, sound and high definition video to give users the illusion that they are in the same room, even though participants could be anywhere in the world.

By connecting Halo studios to standards-based videoconferencing systems located anywhere in the world, customers can instantly access their best talent and accelerate decision-making - driving better business results, HP said.

The new product, HP Halo Gateway, is designed to expand the world of telepresence - and the lifelike collaboration that can take place within it - to a much broader audience. The configuration comprises a Tandberg 6000 MXP codec and Video Switch, a Halo compositor, an HP ProLiant server and HP-designed software.

There are 120 HP Halo studios in operation or being installed globally in 22 countries on five continents. These countries include: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Businesses using Halo include ABN AMRO, AIG Financial Products Corp., AMD, BHP Billiton, Canon, DreamWorks Animation, General Electric Commercial Finance, Novartis and PepsiCo.
