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 that will enable Lync users to quickly and easily initiate and participate in HD multiparty Vidyo conferences. Lync users will now be able to access Vidyo’s personal telepresence by simply selecting it from within their desktop application. Vidyo’s Microsoft Lync Plug-In is also backward compatible with Microsoft OCS 2007.

When a user clicks on the “VidyoConferencing” button from a pull-down menu or presence icon for a given contact in Microsoft Lync, the contact is automatically invited to the user´s Vidyo meeting room, and a “guest hyper-link” is provided if the contact is not a registered Vidyo user. Vidyo has also simplified scheduling and guest participant invitations with a separate plug-in for Microsoft Outlook. To create a calendar invite for a meeting, users can simply click the VidyoConferencing button on their Outlook toolbar, adding a URL that takes invited guests directly into the user´s virtual meeting room, providing easy one-click access for invitees.
