Telepresence company Digital Video Enterprises (DVE) has teamed up with Microsoft to demo the DVE Immersion Room, a new holographic presentation room. During the demo, Microsoft Windows is floating in the middle of the room and visitors are able to interact with the OS using video objects that are floating in mid-air.

The company also has its newest generation of telepresence technology in which Microsoft Lync coupled with DVE's program provides HD images of life-size people in the room. Telepresence is still in its infancy, but shows great potential for remote video conferences that provide users with a life-like meeting experience.

"We have predicted that software based conferencing will transform enterprise communication and now we are able to power the best telepresence experience in the world from a Windows PC, notebook, and even a Surface Pro tablet," said Jeff Machtig, DVE co-founder, in a statement.

DVE is now showing off the new technology in its showrooms, as businesses are showing interest in newer, innovative ways to communicate.
