Dayton, Ohio (PRWEB) July 24, 2008
On Friday, July 18, PangeAir Corporation celebrated the much anticipated grand opening of their first franchise at the Dayton Convention Center. Local government officials, television media and the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce gathered to experience a newly available public-access video communications and media solution, known as Dayton's PangeAir Gateway.
The PangeAir Telepresence Gateway is available to rent for the purpose of conducting or attending meetings, facilitating events and providing education and training. Participants can interact and share data with one another through video on the two high-definition 65-inch LCD monitors, thus eliminating the time and money required for travel. Up to 25 people can join a meeting from inside the state-of-the-art suite in the Dayton Convention Center, and communicate as though they are face-to-face.
According to Bob Briggs, CEO of Indianapolis-based PangeAir, "Businesses and organizations can bring together distant employees, executives and clients without the challenges of travel in an environment that can best be described as interactive high-definition TV. Meetings at PangeAir Gateways improve productivity, quality of life and the bottom line. "
PangeAir is a franchisor that has identified potential audiences who could benefit from public access telepresence locations, from corporations to universities, healthcare to law. Foreseeing an opportunity to create face-to-face interaction without the need for travel, they understood that telepresence technology had endless applications. "Dayton is the birthplace of aviation and this is the beginning of a brand new business travel venue, the launch of a digital airline gateway," said David Allen, chairman of PangeAir.
