According to Carsten Steinecker, COMK-TEC’s Managing Director, “Vidyo redefines video conferencing and telepresence with its unique technology by making video conferencing independent of location and devices. Vidyo’s IP and the unique way its architecture leverages SVC, resulting in unmatched image quality, even with large bandwidth variations, convinces even the most positive fan of legacy MCU and AVC systems.”
