Telepresence vs VideoConferencing

I suspect it is about time I chimed in on this definition thing on this blog.

I had an unfortunate “job” interview yesterday in 2012 (now this is 2020 and we are home riding out the coronavirus) and it got me to re-evaluating a lot of things. The “job” was to install “telepresence”.  After a few seconds of questioning  I realized that it was not “telepresence” they wanted, but, plain old vanilla “video conferencing”.  Unfortunately, errr….Fortunately, I was told I was “not qualified” to install it….thus, the re-evaluation.

One thing I need to do is to give you, as a videoconferencing original, MY definition of the difference between telepresence and video conferencing.  (The pictures shown below are totally random….so don’t get all upset about what vendors are being shown…:-))

Telepresence: A very expensive room with a wonderful “experience”

Video Conferencing: Everything else from mobile to conference rooms

You get the idea….
