Interoperability with third party H.323 and SIP based videoconferencing systems has always been a hallmark of the Vidyo experience. VidyoGatewayTM delivers affordable interoperability that is easy to deploy, manage, and scale. Now, with the release of the latest v.3.2 of VidyoGateway software, new features improve the user experience for participants joining from third party endpoints.
Participants connecting from H.323 or SIP systems can now enjoy a new layout view for multipoint calls. The new gallery view delivers a 7+1 layout with the active speaker prominently displayed and up to 7 other participants located in a strip below.
In addition to a new screen layout, third party endpoints also will receive updated notification information. If the conference is being recorded with VidyoReplayTM, both audio and on screen indicators will be played when a recording is initiated. When other participants join or leave the conference, participants on third party systems will receive audio join and leave tones. Whether you’re participating from a Vidyo client or a third party system, you will always know the current status of the conference.
This release also brings added flexibility for administrators of VidyoGateway Virtual Edition (VE). The virtual edition of the VidyoGateway now detects the amount of resources that have been allocated and automatically sets the capacity. This means administrators have the flexibility to size the VidyoGateway to their exact capacity needs to use resources more efficiently. Administrators also have the ability to run multiple instances of the VidyoGateway VE on a single physical host. Combined with the existing VidyoGateway clustering support, the VidyoGateway VE enables high availability and precise sizing of the Vidyo system.
There are many other feature enhancements in this release. Please check the release notes for more details and software dependencies. Visit the Vidyo Support Portal for more details on what’s new and get upgraded today!
