The Whitby Abilities Centre – utilizing Cisco TelePresence – today announced an interactive kiosk to offer real-time collaboration, including high-definition two-way video and audio.
Technologies for the upcoming TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Games will be previewed at the kiosk, said Cisco, a Premier Partner and the Official Information and Communications Technology provider of the Games.
There are immediate plans to set up similar kiosks throughout Toronto and at various competition venues, offering similar features as well as the ability to communicate with participating athletes and other venues.
In addition to wayfinding, users can also access the community portal, local GO transit schedules, tourism content, maps, and links to neighboring regions. The kiosk features assistive technology, such as high contrast and font-size adjustment, for quick and easy navigation, said Cisco.
Ron Dekker, vice president, corporate development, Cisco Canada, said: “It’s a great way for people to witness firsthand how technology and connectivity continue to have a positive impact in everyday life.”
