Noteworthy News from the Nordic

Another video conferencing FIRST was announced today: The FIRST video conferencing service that lets business users engage in HD room and desktop video conferencing VIA THEIR SMART PHONES AND TABLETS.  We’re talking about enterprise-grade, multi-party, TV-quality video conferencing on your smart phone or tablet!

This goes way beyond one mobile device interacting with another mobile device.  This new mobile service from leading Nordic communications service provider, Elisa, is being piloted on the Samsung Galaxy phone and tablet. Unlike other recent announcements, this is not something that anyone has to wait for or wonder about.  It’s available today – in the Nordic region using the Elisa service on a Galaxy Tab or smart phone.

Video conferencing for Enterprises is becoming main stream. And for this reason, businesses are looking for conferencing products and technology that are MOBILE, to let anyone, anywhere participate.  They’re looking for services and solutions that let you connect to important conferences on your smart phone or tablet, along with other participants who are on room systems, desktops, laptops, etc.  If you’ve been following the news and this blog then you know that, yes, it is only Vidyo who offers the SVC-based architecture to make this possible.
