Chicago (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
Personify, the immersive video communication company behind Personify Live, has been named a finalist for the 2013 ITA CityLIGHTS Trailblazing Award. Personify, which was founded in 2009, aims to bridge the gap between communicating remotely and talking face-to-face by seamlessly merging human interaction with digital content.
Personify’s flagship product, Personify Live, launched in November 2012. Personify Live is the first Web conferencing tool that combines a presenter with his or her content. Personify’s patent-pending user extraction technology superimposes video of the presenter onto any background, creating a virtual green screen experience. Personify Live works with the capabilities of GoToMeeting, WebEx, Adobe Connect, Microsoft Lync and other standard web conferencing tools to enhance the standard web conferencing experience.
“Being chosen by the ITA CityLIGHTS judges as one of the finalists for the Trailblazing Award is an honor,” said Dr. Sanjay Patel, CEO and cofounder of Personify. “This recognition is a particularly noteworthy accolade when you consider the in-roads Personify has made in the Web conferencing industry just six months after launch, especially in a state as tech-rich as Illinois.”
Originally developed for sales and marketing professionals, Personify Live is already being used by several members of the Fortune 50, and the product is seeing adoption with professors in the university setting as well. With gesture recognition technology incorporated into Personify Live’s functionality, Personify is also a leader in Intel’s perceptual computing initiative.
The ITA CityLIGHTS Trailblazing Award, a new category in 2013, is presented to the company that has developed or introduced an ingenious, non-traditional and innovative way of doing business or creating a culture that produced significant value and growth for the company.
Public voting for the ITA CityLIGHTS Awards is open April 8-22, 2013. ITA CityLIGHTS winners will be determined by a composite score of 50 percent judging panel and 50 percent community voting. Votes can be submitted until end-of-day on April 22, 2013. Winners will be announced at the 2013 ITA CityLIGHTS Awards Gala May 9, 2013 at Union Station in Chicago.
