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!

Vidyo Integrates with Microsoft Lync, Delivering its VidyoConferencing to Lync Users Anywhere, Anytime
Interoperability is currently at the core of an important debate in the video conferencing industry which will surely escalate in the coming months as more and more players in the market start to embrace standards such as the new extensions to Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and the H.264 SVC standard (scalable video coding). Vidyo, as always, is in the thick of this discussion and we’ve been doing our part to further interoperability in this market. Yesterday, we released the latest in a series of announcements we’ve made over the past six months that demonstrate our focus on interoperability and unified communications: a new Plug-In for Microsoft Lync.
What a night! Vidyo was the host of the 2011 Enterprise Connect party in Orlando Florida and we all had a great time. This was a great way for us to announce our new VidyoRouter Cloud Edition and to answer questions about how its architecture may change the videoconferencing industry. Check out the pictures of the evening!
Enterprise Connect is buzzing with new and exciting technologies, and among other noteworthy demonstrations, Vidyo is showcasing its just-announced VidyoReplay solution, at Booth #1209.

Users can also record and webcast from Vidyo endpoints, including hand held devices, laptops, desktops and VidyoRoom systems. With VidyoReplay, conferences can be recorded in standard web video file (FLV) format with no proprietary player required to view the recorded content.
Enterprise Connect 2011 is just around the corner! The show will take place in Orlando, Florida from February 28 to March 3 and will be all about communication technologies that are transforming today’s business world. Needless to say, Vidyo is excited to be part of the discussion and to join in on the fun!

Businesses are moving through stages and evolution. A big push was the conference calls. Soon screen sharing was available and travel started declining. But the face to face portion needed a comeback. The phone alone does not promote the full mental image of how the person is receiving our message. 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.
