Vidyo APIs Allow Easy Integration of Diagnostic Medical Devices and Imaging Software with Video Conferencing and Collaboration
SAN JOSE, Calif., Apr 26, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — ATA 2012 Conference — Vidyo, Inc., the first company to deliver personal telepresence, and AMD Global Telemedicine, a leading supplier of medical technology for clinical telemedicine, today announced a partnership that will integrate Vidyo’s award-winning software-based solution with AMD’s telemedicine platform. The combined solution complements the Vidyo for Healthcare(TM) line with AMD Global’s integrating software and medical devices that are essential for effective telemedicine. Healthcare providers will enjoy a new, simple, intuitive, and comprehensive point-of-care solution.
The companies have integrated Vidyo’s software-based video conferencing platform with AMD Global’s telemedicine platform. The comprehensive solution encompasses the market’s preeminent diagnostic medical devices, AGNES(TM) information aggregation system, and tConsult(TM) Encounter Management Software that is equipped with device management, case creation, work flow and archival tools. Vidyo for Healthcare is a rich and versatile video collaboration platform with APIs that allow companies such as AMD Global to provide healthcare professionals with easy access to high-quality, cost-effective video communications on a variety of off-the-shelf devices such as laptops, smartphones, desktops and tablets via the Internet, 3G/4G and other general IP networks. The integrated solution will simplify the work flow for physicians, providing them with a single user interface that integrates visual communication with information from medical devices and medical records. The combined solution will be demonstrated at this week’s ATA 2012 conference from April 29 — May 1 in San Jose, CA (AMD Global Booth #634 and Vidyo Booth #936).
“The clinical telemedicine market has long been in need of a solution that offered both access and mobility for physicians to use from wherever they happen to be, without sacrificing quality,” said Dan McCafferty, Vice President, Global Sales and Corporate Development, AMD Global Telemedicine. “Vidyo’s solution satisfies these criteria and offers an outstanding quality video component that is highly complementary to AMD’s Agnes(TM) software, which is quickly becoming an industry standard. We believe that this is a great marriage of innovation between our two companies.”
“There is an increasing demand for workflow integration that allows healthcare practitioners to have all of the tools they need — including a live, natural view of the patient – at their immediate disposal,” said Dr. Amnon Gavish, Vidyo’s Senior VP, Vertical Solutions. “The point-of-care solution that will result from the Vidyo-AMD Global partnership will not only improve the productivity of healthcare professionals but will also enable quicker and more informed diagnoses and decisions and allow visual communications — along with input from AMD Global’s medical devices, measurement of vital signs and access to medical records tools – to be part of examinations, making the experience much closer to an ‘in-person’ appointment.”
The Vidyo Difference
The Vidyo communication and collaboration platform is software-based, highly flexible and can be easily customized for individual enterprise and vertical market video conferencing needs. The patented VidyoRouter(TM) architecture introduces Adaptive Video Layering(TM), which dynamically optimizes the video for each endpoint leveraging H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC)-based compression technology and Vidyo’s IP. Adaptive Video Layering eliminates the MCU and offers unprecedented error resiliency, low latency rate matching thus enabling natural, affordable, high-quality video to work over the Internet, LTE and 4G networks. The platform allows users to quickly leverage the latest hardware innovations and new consumer devices, making it uniquely attractive to partners. Vidyo has been active driving H.264 SVC and SIP videoconferencing interoperability in various standards bodies since 2005.
