The best run companies in the world recognize that now is exactly the right time to take bold steps to change the status quo and leap ahead of the competition. The past three years have seen a relentless focus on cost cutting by IT organizations under fire to become more efficient. But pent up demand from the business for new, innovative technology solutions is now putting IT leaders under increasing pressure to speed up the delivery of business solutions that drive top line revenue.
For years, these solutions have been defined with the equivalent of drafting boards used in other industries in years past. Business people fundamentally have a hard time interpreting text specifications, static screen shots, use cases and business process flow diagrams. Coded prototypes haven't solved the problem because they've been proven to be too expensive, time consuming and difficult to iterate in real-time. The result has been lengthy requirements phases and costly rework which leads to persistent project delays, cost over-runs and missing features in business-critical applications. In addition, these requirements related issues add significant risk to the global sourcing model due to poor communication with sourcing partners.

Vidyo Inc., for many years video conferencing didn't work well because the quality was inconsistent and the delays were too long for highly interactive communications. Telepresence remedied these problems by guaranteeing the network and eliminating the multipoint conferencing bridge, but at very high cost. Vidyo addresses this disparity delivering affordable personal telepresence to companies of all sizes over general IP, 3G or 4G networks.
VidyoConferencing enables enterprises to have the highest quality HD videoconferencing experience (720P, 1080P or 1440P), formerly available only through $1M systems requiring high QoS networks and operation costs, for pennies instead of dollars per minute per user. Vidyo’s multipoint videoconferences run on PC and Mac desktop and laptop computers, room systems and soon on tablets and smart phones.
Vidyo was the first company to utilize H.264/Scalable Video Coding (SVC) as the basis for a video conferencing solution. H.264/SVC is a video compression standard that enables a video stream to be broken into multiple resolutions, quality levels and bit rates. Utilizing this capability and Vidyo´s intellectual property, the VidyoRouter architecture offers unprecedented error resiliency while eliminating the MCU. The VidyoRouter is the first video multipoint solution that can deliver rate matching and continuous presence capabilities without an additional video encode and decode. This unique capability allows for less than half of the end-to-end latency of MCU-based solutions.
VidyoTechnology™ is used by Google, HP, Hitachi, Shoretel and other major organizations and enterprises. For more info on Vidyo’s award winning solutions contact us at +1 866-99 VIDYO or go to www.vidyo.com or Twitter@Vidyo
