There’s a lot to be said for learning from real life versus a text book. The staff and faculty at Arizona State University’s School of Life Sciences (SOLS) took the “seeing is believing” approach to education one step farther, and last year initiated a class that allowed ASU students to explore the jungles of Panama without having to leave Tempe, Arizona. Not only that, they were guided by leading research scientists and experts from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute’s facilities on Barro Colorado Island, in the middle of the Panama Canal! When Charles Kazilek, SOLS Director of Technology Integration and Outreach, discovered Vidyo, he was thrilled.

Guess it’s no surprise that the iPad 2 is selling like hotcakes. Some analysts estimate that Apple may have sold as many as 500,000 iPad 2s over its debut weekend. With another industry first, the Vidyo Platform now not only supports Apple’s just released iPad™ 2, but also Motorola’s XOOM tablet and the Atrix™ 4G smart phone.
Vidyo was ranked 11th this year out of over 10,000 VC-backed companies, moving up from the 35th spot last year. And what a year it’s been! We’re seeing the market strongly embrace our VidyoRouter architecture, which affirms what we’ve asserted from the start – Natural, Universal and Affordable VidyoTechnology and products are driving the next-generation of video communications and collaboration. Our platform has been chosen and deployed by leading unified communications companies such as HP and Ricoh, international telecom carriers like KDDI and Elisa Corporation, and continues to win major accounts in enterprise and vertical markets.
Businesses are moving through stages and evolution. A big push was the conference calls. Soon screen sharing was available and travel started declining.

Visual indicators have long been a form of adjusting your conversation. Being able to see a reaction, distraction and provide early action helps everyone feel they are making sound business decisions.
Vidyo announced today its membership of the Unified Communications Interoperability Forum (UCIF), a non-profit alliance of worldwide technology leaders. The objective of the UCIF is to work together towards reaching the full potential of unified communications.
