How about an uplifting news story for a change? Here’s a short but important CNN video clip that aired over this past weekend. As we mark the second anniversary of the earthquake that demolished much of Haiti, many of international news reports have focused on the fact that there is still so much that needs to be done to help this ravaged country. But here is one very positive account of countries, universities, medical practitioners and Vidyo (!) coming together to ensure that Haiti’s own medical community is restored and able to thrive into the future.

Vidyo was able to get multipoint video conferencing up and running on Amazon’s new Kindle Fire – and tonight at CES ShowStoppers we’ll be showcasing this as another proof point of how Vidyo has lead the way into a new generation video conferencing solutions.

Rather than simply toss out your outdated hardware, Vidyo has created a program to help organizations trade up – in a way that makes financial sense – to a better system. For a limited time, organizations can receive a credit toward the purchase of a Vidyo solution when they trade in a legacy room system. The credit goes as high as $5000 for each room system that is replaced with Vidyo.
Dear Andrew, I read with great interest your coverage of Cisco’s future multipoint video architecture. I am not sure if it was intentional, but your title selection resonated well with us: we all know what happened to the Empire! We (in the rebellion camp) are happy to see the big players admitting one after the … continue reading
Noland and other Baird analysts surveyed the video conferencing market, talking to vendors, resellers, and customers of video conferencing products around the world. They uncovered and present a number of interesting points about the market and its leading players, and they aren’t afraid to name names. Vidyo’s vision is to make natural communication universally available. Leading technologists doubted it could be accomplished. Competing vendors believed they could continue selling less for more.
It’s easy to forget that one of the greatest discoveries of modern science began with a field trip. An inquisitive undergraduate at Cambridge University with a fascination for the natural world was given an opportunity to leave the classroom and set sail. This voyage from England to the shores of South America resulted in the theory of natural selection and catapulted the amateur naturalist, Charles Darwin, into the history books.
We can all recall participating in field trips of our own during our school years. Those bumpy rides at the back of museum-bound yellow buses may have helped us identify with Darwin’s bouts with seasickness, but our destination was most likely some place across town and not the exotic Galapagos. New technology, however, is helping resurrect the adventuresome spirit of Darwin, offering children access to learning opportunities not just around the block but around the globe.
While VidyoMobile makes it possible to participate in unbelievably high quality multi-party video conferences over the broadband mobile network while you’re barreling down the highway, only do so from the passenger seat! Texting while driving has become a significant road hazard and is responsible for countless accidents—and texting has very limited engagement. Just imagine how … continue reading
Vidyo was honored tonight as the recipient of the 2011 winner of the Frost & Sullivan Global Product Differentiation Excellence Award for Videoconferencing Infrastructure Systems.
Time is an expensive commodity. And few industries price time higher than in the legal profession. So utilizing video conferencing to collaborate more efficiently and eliminate costly travel time, has been a high priority for law firms. A very large percentage of legal work involves collaboration, whether that is for attorneys working as a team or negotiating with counterparts representing the other side. While the legal profession has recognized the value of being able to meet face-to-face to accomplish their work, the video conferencing tools they’ve used have mainly been room-based. This experience has not been compelling because they’ve sat at traditional conference tables and had the experience of seeing their counterparts as barely recognizable figures around a large table. Well, times are changing for law firms, and today we just shared the Vedder Price story. Vedder Price upgraded from their Polycom legacy past to the modern Vidyo world.
Since we first introduced Vidyo for Healthcare 15 months ago, we have met and worked with many visionary individuals and healthcare groups who are dedicated to furthering telemedicine practices in their respective regions. Our most recent partnership has been with the Ontario Telemedicine Network, an enterprise that has been pioneering province-wide telemedicine programs for many years. Through this experience, OTN developed a sophisticated management system that covers all aspects of a large scale telemedicine deployment.
