See Tim Hoerr, CEO of Serra Ventures, present to the Executive Club of Champaign County using Nuvixa’s new software tool, Stage Presence! Tim’s topic, Innovation in Champaign County, emphasized the significant growth in the entrepreneurial ecosystem that has occurred since the Research Park was founded in 2000. This presentation provided an interesting look at the tremendous amount of innovation happening in Champaign County, with inside profiles on four technology start-up companies that exemplify the innovative spirit.
Nuvixa, Inc. is creating a next generation video conferencing solution that enables a high-end virtual presence experience on a laptop or PC. High-end virtual presence solutions are currently available for large corporations through Cisco, Hewlett Packard and other high-end providers. These solutions require significant amounts of equipment and expertise to operate and a dedicated room. Using these systems, remote teams can conduct video conferencing meetings with the perception that all of the participants are in the same location, thus simulating the human dynamics that exist in a meeting when all are physically present. Nuvixa’s goal is to bring this same type of functionality to individuals and smaller businesses in an easier to use format, at a fraction of the cost, and without location constraints.
