Vatican City Selects VidyoConferencing Technology to Ease Communications between Offices of the Holy See

Vatican SealThe Vatican is one of the world’s oldest institutions, keeper of Christian traditions and of thousands of years of history whose roots date back to the 5th century.

One of the objectives of the Vatican in the past few years has been centered around the improvement of communication. The sovereign territory of the Holy See illustrates this shared effort and has deployed VidyoConferencing to enhance interactions between the various locations throughout the organization.


Until now, Vatican City had been using traditional communications tools that no longer fulfilled the needs of a growing organization with offices worldwide. The selection of Vidyo’s platform was made by the Telecommunication Department of the city, which oversees the adoption of technologies within the Holy See; they reviewed a variety of different video conferencing solutions during their evaluation.

The Vatican City’s Telecommunications Department’s objective was to introduce a high-quality, cost-effective, video communications and collaboration platform. Since most of those who would be using the system were not technically savvy, the system needed to be easy to use, access and maintain. Vidyo’s solution was a fit. It will allow anyone in the Vatican City to use video communications easily, even those with less technical knowledge, resulting in a reduction of travel costs and a positive impact on the environment.
