the challenge

Cisco’s Telepresence System Business Unit (TSBU) asked Speck Design to develop their first entry into the telepresence market, with the goal of becoming the category leader. Cisco sought to create a life-like, reliable, and visually consistent communication experience incorporating state-of-the-art technologies in HD display, spatial audio, imaging, and lighting -- all accessible through an intuitive user interface. In order to create a comfortable environment conducive to open communication, it was important to play down system complexity and create a great conference room experience. Speck ultimately designed the entire solution, including unique displays, cameras, conference tables, and lighting systems that could easily be scaled for different room sizes.
