Vidyo Wins 2011 Mobile Video Conferencing Award at CTIA

Another Vidyo milestone took place at last night’s 2011 MobileTrax Wireless Innovators Dinner – an annual event that is part of CTIA, honoring excellence within the mobile computing and wireless data communications industry over the past year. In front of an audience that included senior executives, venture capitalists, investment bankers, industry analysts and media, Vidyo received the 2011 Mobile Trax Mobility Award for Enterprise Mobility / Mobile Video Conferencing.  We’re especially proud of this award since we’ve worked so hard to break new ground in video conferencing for mobile devices.

Last week, Vidyo used its SDK to enable the Apple iPad 2 to participate in high-definition 720p multipoint video conferencing within hours of general availability of the device!  And let’s not forget that Vidyo was demonstrated as the first TV quality multipoint conference on a smart phone during the keynote address at CES 2010. The Vidyo platform for mobile devices is a shining example of our innovation and leadership. Our SDK supports the iPad, iPhone 4, iPod, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S smart phone, the Google Nexus S, multiple other Android phones and tablets, and now the iPad 2, XOOM and Atrix.

This accolade exemplifies Vidyo’s extensive innovation and significant contribution to the progress of the mobility industry. Vidyo is a pioneer in video communications and collaboration, and is now providing enterprises with ‘next-generation’ video conferencing mobility solutions that align with today’s mobility needs.”

Needless to say, we’re extremely proud of this award and thank Mobile Trax for recognizing a great innovator when they see one!  That’s Vidyo!
