Japan Telepresence Market 2009-2013
25 February 2010, Pages - 17
The term Telepresence comprises a set of technologies, such as high definition audio, video, and other interactive elements. These enable people to feel or appear as if they were present in a location which they are not physically in. Telepresence is mainly used as a collaboration tool, to help create a more "in person" meeting experience over a converged network.
Video conferencing solutions have existed in the market since the 1970's. However, owing to their inherent complexities (such as bandwidth concerns, call drops, high hardware, operational costs, etc), they became expensive and a non-productive setup. As a result, people preferred communicating in person, over e-mails or telephone . Broadly, Telepresence can be understood as an advanced video conferencing tool.
Considerable developments and improvements in technologies over the recent years have resulted in an increased usage of video conferencing and Telepresence. Such technologies include WLAN (Wireless Local Area Networks), WAN (Wireless Area Networks), digital compression, signal transmission, and high bandwidth.
Japan has a large industrial capacity and is home to some of the largest, leading and most technologically advanced producers of motor vehicles, electronic equipment, machine tools etc. Moreover, Japan is the global leader in the telecommunications industry, and ahead of Europe and the US in most areas of telecommunications. The technological awareness, high penetration rate of internet, and extensive usage of electronic equipments are significant drivers of Telepresence in Japan.
