Tonight the ever-exciting CES 2012 ShowStoppers event will take place in Las Vegas … and, as always, the level of “WOW” will be off the charts as new products and groundbreaking technologies vie for the attention of CES attendees. Vidyo’s contribution to the excitement this year is sure to generate a lot of WOW electricity!
Vidyo was able to get multipoint video conferencing up and running on Amazon’s new Kindle Fire – and tonight at CES ShowStoppers we’ll be showcasing this as another proof point of how Vidyo has lead the way into a new generation video conferencing solutions. We’ll also be featuring the latest platform support for its VidyoMobile™ HD video conferencing software client: Android 4.0 ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ running on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smart phone. The new Android mobile platform will be part of a live, multi-point, global video conference connecting an extensive variety of endpoints on iOS and Android mobile devices including Kindle Fire, plus desktops, laptops and room systems. ShowStoppers takes place tonight from 6 to 10pm in the Lafite Ballroom of the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.
And – while you’re at CES this week – you can also find Vidyo at the Alcatel-Lucent Booth – #31412 South Upper Hall - as Vidyo teams with Alcatel-Lucent and other ng Connect member companies to provide a glimpse into videoconferencing and broadband-enabled service concepts in the transportation, public safety and healthcare industries. According to Jason Collins, Vice President of Emerging Technology and Innovation at Alcatel-Lucent, “Vidyo is an ideal fit for the ng Connect Program, where we show how high-bandwidth networks can transform specific industries to spur excitement about future possibilities. The integration of live videoconferencing, by leveraging Vidyo’s ability to deliver a high quality, flexible video conferencing solution over a range of devices, helps the service concepts achieve an even greater impact and a more compelling value proposition.”
And don’t forget to check out the Vidyo-based retail kiosk demo — part of the Connected Retail Experience demo in the Verizon booth (Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, Booth #32059)! Vidyo is teaming with Verizon Wireless to showcase sophisticated HD videoconferencing over a 4G LTE network that can help make shopping more fun for consumers and more profitable for retailers. In the Connected Retail Experience, a Virtual Personal Stylist (VPS) shows how shopping for new clothes can become both an easier and a richer experience over the 4G LTE network.
We hope you are having a fun, productive time at CES … and hope to see you at ShowStoppers tonight!
