Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be at this event in the Vector Arena, where TelstraClear took the opportunity to outline plans, recall success and show off some truly impressive technology.
Actually I was on one of the stands talking about IP Gateway and Next IP
I was also fortunate enough to see the preparations first-hand yesterday morning (I arrived early with the Events Managers, so got a back-stage tour), and spoke to some of the folks that put the show together. Really cool stuff, and a real chest-thumping show.
The hologram of Rove was beamed in live across the Trans-tasman link, and there was very little delay - Rove commented that the delay was doing wonders for comic timing. He showed a picture of that mornings Sydney Morning Herald, although the sport section had fallen out of it.... maybe into a large rugby cup....
So a first for TCL, but also a real-revving of the engines at the core of the company....
NB: I work at TelstraClear

Very cool indeed.. Now how much bandwidth was that using and how much would it cost the average company to conduct a holographic board meeting with TCL's pricing? :-)

I wish I'd been there to see it. This is one of the technologies I have been waiting for since I was a little fella (Couple of years ago lol)
