Vidyo is uniquely positioned to deliver the technology necessary to bring video-enabled healthcare, banking and safety applications to life.- connecting people for better face-to-face communication.
As we look forward toward what’s next for Vidyo, a key area is the opportunity to expedite growth through fostering our ecosystem of partners. “Enabling partners to develop and deploy new and innovative solutions, based on the VidyoWorks Platform, will propel us into global markets with greater scale and reach, faster than what we can achieve on our own,” said Waicberg. “It’s an exciting time to be at Vidyo and I look forward to addressing the many areas of opportunities with the support of this powerful, combined team!”
