    Expert handbook on presenting virtually

    The future of virtual conferencing, virtual meetings and virtual presentations has arrived, for those who can afford it. To see the high level of technological sophistication currently available, check Wikipedia's entry for "videotelephony." There, you will see a photo of 14 people conferencing, with six sitting on one side of a conference table, and virtual images - as real as life - of the other eight sitting at a similar table somewhere else in the world. The effect is as if all 14 individuals are in the same room. Expect teleconferencing to become even more lifelike soon. Cisco Systems currently is working on realistic holographic technology to replace videoconferencing. Presentation coach Timothy J. Koegel discusses new virtual presentation and meeting technology, and teaches you how to make effective use of this high-tech wonder. getAbstract finds that he does an excellent job of explaining how virtual presenters can leverage their new toolbox.
