Telepresence

Overview

TinMan Telepresence is a feature that allows an operator to use a PC with headset and microphone to control Engineered Arts' robots like RoboThespian or Mesmer and speak to an audience via the robot.

The operator is located remotely anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection, for full details of standard Tinman Telepresence please see TinMan Telepresence

For some customers using their robots at different venues or without access to a good quality wired internet connection we can now offer an optional local install of Tinman Telepresence.
