What Is Telepresence?
Cisco TelePresence is a new-generation videoconferencing system that provides users an immersive face-to-face meeting experience using three 65" high-definition (HD) plasma televisions and CD-quality audio. Each University of Missouri TelePresence room is designed to appear as though you are in the same room and communicating across the table with life-size colleagues. Cameras and microphones are pre-positioned to eliminate the need for adjustments. Presentations (like PowerPoint) can appear on auxiliary monitors. Up to eighteen conferees can formally participate. End users can initiate scheduled conferences using TelePresence-associated (VoIP) telephone, just like making a regular call. Calls can be point-to-point or multipoint. Coming this Fall end-users will tentatively be able to schedule conferences with other TelePresence systems throughout the world via AT&T or I2.
Note: TelePresence cannot be scheduled to deliver courses.
The scheduling for the room is done via Outlook, using the steps described below:
- Click on File, then New, and then Meeting Request. Add meeting participants in the required and/or optional fields in the meeting request window that opens.
- Go to the scheduling screen by clicking Scheduling and then click on the add others button to open the address book. Here is where you will also set the date and start/end times for the event.
- NOTE: You must schedule at least 15 minutes between any meeting already on the calendar.
- Type "TelePresence" to find the list of system wide available rooms and select two or more TelePresence rooms. These must go into the resources field!
- Click OK
- Add in required and optional users to be invited to the meeting.
- Ensure the meeting times do not conflict with other meetings.
- Click back on Appointment on the top ribbon and then Send to close the meeting request. Wait for a message from TelePresence confirming the meeting.

If you need to schedule a TelePresence conference with a room outside the University of Missouri System, please follow the instructions on the MOREnet TelePresence scheduling page.
TelePresence users should be aware that on rare occasions, their scheduled meeting may be pre-empted to accommodate senior university officials. If this does occur, we will make every effort to reschedule your meeting and/or make arrangements for a non-TelePresence video conference or an audio conference in the original time slot
