LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- After an initial launch in October, Telemediators expands its innovative service to reach ten European countries by January 2011. Telemediators provide personalized live video-streaming from locations of business or personal interests in Belgium, Bosnia, Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. It is the first service of its kind that utilizes technology that combines video conferencing with mobility.
Compared to television or a video recording, Telemediators provides a live, personalized service because the user acts as a director, in full control of the remote experience, while the Telemediators' cameramen move and broadcast from where they are directed. Telemediation as a service is an important step toward "telepresence." While teleconferencing with friends, family or business associates occurs from a limited number of fixed locations, telemediation provides the user the benefit of his own cameraman at the specified time and worldwide destination. The user can virtually see, and bee seen, wherever they want to.
To utilize the benefits of Telemediators, users must have access to a computer, speakers, and a microphone. Additionally, users need a Skype account with Skype installed on their computers and a webcam if they are also sending video of themselves. Whether you're in Los Angeles wanting to participate in the family reunion in Milan, inspect a business for sale in Bucharest, a filming location in Sarajevo, or simply want to entertain, taking your loved one for a walk on the old streets below Edinburgh Castle, Telemediators allows the user to direct the steps of the cameraman and see live thousands of miles away.
Headquartered in Pasadena, California, Telemediators runs the European operations from Madrid, Spain. Originally targeting businesses with interests in Europe, European Diaspora, and people with disabilities, Telemediators empowers the user to be telepresent at any desired destination when traveling is not an option. For a limited time, Telemediators is providing a 20% discount to first-time users using the code: ECAE012PR1 – users can make reservations online at www.telemediators.com.
