Last week at the AV Magazine gala, I was proud to accept the “Collaborative Communication Project of the Year” award on behalf of Vidyo, Inc. It is indeed an honor that Vidyo was co-named as a recipient of this award with global humanitarian organization, Concern Worldwide. Concern services over 25 underprivileged countries, delivering programs that benefit 8.5 million people annually. From tackling health, education and livelihood challenges of the world, the 2,200 Concern Worldwide personnel also face the challenge of visually communicating and collaborating, reliably, clearly and affordably to get the job done. It is humbling and extremely gratifying that Vidyo’s innovative technology has been recognized in helping Concern Worldwide meet this challenge.
According to Vincent Richardson, CIO, Concern Worldwide, “Vidyo makes it possible to conference to the most obscure, underdeveloped locations on the planet … and that’s deeply powerful. What Vidyo offers us is a video conferencing platform that we can use broadly anywhere.” Read the full case study, here.
Often times we think of video conferencing as something only used in the boardroom. Today, with Vidyo’s technology, innovators around the world are leveraging Vidyo’s unique, flexible, architecture in various applications to improve lives and support significant economic and social initiatives such as the Thinking Schools Academy in India or the Haiti Medical Education Project. Vidyo’s technology is making a huge difference, advancing innovative global communications for our partners, our customers and for everyone who has experienced the amazing benefits of the Vidyo-based communications and collaboration tools that are driving these critical humanitarian and philanthropic efforts.
